Star Wars Rebels stars Vanessa Marshall and Jason Isaacs are heading up the cast for the Warner Bros Animation adaptation of Superman: Red Son, an adaptation of Mark Millar’s 2003 famed Elseworlds story, and TV Insider took a look at the rest of the cast.
Leading the cast is Star Trek: Discovery’s Jason Isaacs, who will pipe up as Kal-El himself after voicing three major DC Comics villains in past Warner Bros. Animation projects: Sinestro (Green Lantern: Emerald Knights), Lex Luthor (Justice League: Gods and Monsters), and Ra’s al Ghul (Batman: Under the Red Hood).
Joining him are American Housewife’s Diedrich Bader as Lex Luthor, The Gifted and Angel alum Amy Acker as Lois Lane, Star Wars Rebels’ Vanessa Marshall as Wonder Woman, and Doom Patrol’s Phil Morris (who was also Smallville’s Martian Manhunter) as James Olsen.
You’ll also be hearing Oscar-winning songwriter and Goliath scene-stealer Paul Williams as Brainiac, along with Grimm’s Sasha Roiz and Supergirl’s Malefic, Phil LaMarr filling out the Green Lantern corps of Hal Jordan and John Stewart, respectively.
Frequent Batman voice actor Roger Craig Smith (Batman Ninja, Batman: Arkham Origins) works the cowl again, and fellow WBA vets Jim Meskimen (Constantine: City of Demons) and Travis Willingham (Batman: Bad Blood) are on board as John F. Kennedy and Superior Man.
And because Russia, William Salyers (Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders) and Winter Ave Zoli (Boasch) will be n’yetting around as Joseph Stalin and Svetlana.
Bruce Timm and Sam Register are the executive producers, while the film is directed by Sam Liu from a J.M. DeMatteis script. It’s released on DVD/Blu-ray and digital download in early 2020.
