Twelve years after its initial release, DC Comic’s All-Star Superman is being released for the first time to own on 4K Ultra HD on April 18, 2023, from Warner Bros. Discovery Home Entertainment. All-Star Superman is one of the Man of Steel’s most personal tales in DC Comics history that was created by the legendary comic book storyteller, Grant Morrison.
This Superman classic was the 10th in the ongoing series of DC Universe Movies and DC Animated Movies that now number over 50 films in 17 years. It was produced under animation legends Bruce Timm and Dwayne McDuffie.
Here is the synopsis for All-Star Superman provided by Warner Bros. Discovery Home Entertainment:
Grant Morrison’s beloved, Eisner Award-winning vision of Superman’s heroic final days on Earth is brought to exquisite, animated life in All-Star Superman. The film begins as the Man of Steel rescues an ill-fated mission to the Sun (sabotaged by Lex Luthor) but, in the process, is oversaturated by radiation – which accelerates his cell degeneration.
Sensing even he will be unable to cheat death, Superman ventures into new realms – finally revealing his secret to Lois, confronting Lex Luthor’s perspective of humanity, and attempting to ensure Earth’s safety before his own impending end with one final, selfless act.
The voice cast for the film is led by James Denton, Christina Hedricks, and Anthony LaPaglia as Superman, Lois Lane, and Lex Luthor. Other voice actors include Ed Asner as Perry White, Frances Conroy as Ma Kent, Matthew Grey Gubler as Jimmy Olsen, and Linda Cardellini as Nasty.
