Superman vs. the Elite Promo Clips Focus on New Team
May 25, 2012

I suppose it makes sense that the images and video clips released so far to promote the next DC Animated film, Superman vs. the Elite, revolve around the Elite, since everyone already knows Superman. The original cartoon film is due out on home video June 12. For more information, I’ve previously posted the trailer and more information on the DVD and Blu-ray versions.

The first clip released shows the Elite arriving, with a poor puppy dog getting the worst of the encounter:

They’re led by Manchester Black, played by Robin Atkin Downes.

Three more video clips briefly introduce the various members, all created by Joe Kelly and Doug Mahnke. In order, it’s Coldcast (voiced by Catero Colbert) with electromagnetic powers; Menagerie (Melissa Disney), the bat-woman with pet snakes; and The Hat (Andrew Kishino), my favorite, because it’s such a silly yet unbeatable superpower, having a magic hat, and a ridiculous reduction of the character he’s inspired by, the Authority’s Doctor.
