Watch: Zack Snyder's Superman 75th Anniversary Animated Short

The Superman 75th Anniversary animated short by Zack Snyder and Bruce Timm is now available to view online at the Entertainment Weekly website and DC Comics YouTube channel or watch it below. Also, I made screen captures of Man of Steel star  and the late Christopher Reeve's animated Superman counterparts below. This Superman short will be included on the Man of Steel Blu-ray, out Nov. 12.

    In honor of the hero's 75th anniversary, Man of Steedirector Zack Snyder and DC animated universe maestro Bruce Timm have crafted this two-minute animated short, which blasts through the highlights of the character's many incarnations, from comics, to movies, video games, and even pop art.

    "The idea was to start with Siegel and Shuster and end with Henry Cavill, stopping at all the high points and iconic moments in between."

    The short, produced by Warner Bros. Animation, begins with an extreme close-up of that classic car-lifting cover from Action Comics #1, which Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster created in 1938, while the familiar build-up to John William's triumphant theme from the 1978 movie thrums on the soundtrack. The music eventually merges with Hans Zimmer's theme from this summer's Man of Steel, with Zimmer scoring and orchestrating the combination himself, using an 80-piece orchestra.
