Superman: 75 years of heroic history in a 2-minute animated short — EW EXCLUSIVE
Want to see Superman’s history flash by faster than a speeding bullet?
In honor of the hero’s 75th anniversary, Man of Steel director 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,” Timm tells EW […].
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. […]

No purple mask? No superfluous loincloth-thing? Damn, Hawk. We might have to start taking you seriously.
The Avengers is due in theaters on May 4, 2012.

NYC Superhero Map of the Day: According to this map, the majority of Marvel heroes’ hideouts are located in the wastelands of midtown Manhattan, which makes sense. Tourists need all the help they can get.
But, wait. Luke Cage in the Theatre District? That’s way outdated. He might have been able to pull that rent back in the sleazy 70s, but our guess is the impervious-skinned vigilante trekked it back up to Harlem once Giuliani took office.
