    George Newbern to voice Superman in SUPERMAN vs. THE ELITE

    Justice League: Doom was released on Febuaray 28th, and the next DC Animated film SUPERMAN vs. THE ELITE (Which is based off of What's so funny the Truth, Justice, and the American way?), is going to feature George Newbern to reprise his role from Justice League, The Batman, and Superman/SHAZAM: The Return of Black Adam, while Pauley Perrette, of NCIS will provide the voice of Lois Lane.

    I swear Lois looks like Jennifer Carpenter (Debra Morgan from Dexter) she should voice Lois at some point down the line. Imagine Lois Lane swearing like a trucker. :lol 

    Cool seeing George Newbern is back as Superman. :thumb

    Yes! Newbern is who I hear when I read the comics. Perette? Meh.

    Do you guys think this will be one of the last Superman movies we see? Next year Supes' rights revert back to the heirs (not all of them, but a majority of them) and I just have this fear that they (admittedly, more Marc Toberoff than the actual heirs) will hold Superman hostage legally and he'll disappear. I love Superman, and I hope he's around for a long time.

    Well it will be tricky for them to do that.

    A)DC has the trademarks
    B)They only have the rights to the original costume and logo and powers.Basically the first 7 issues or so.
    So he can't Fly,no heat vison,superbreath,x-ray vison etc. He'd basically be really strong and can jump really high. no extra ablities. Jimmy,Luthor,Lana,Krypto,Supergirl,Perry, Daily Planet(was originally called star)Krytonite(was created for radio) Can't use modern logo. Johnathan and martha kent were originally unnamed I believe, so I don't think they can use them either.
    C)They are suing the lawyer.
    D)If they stop publishing Superman, the lawyer and the heirs get no money. They currently get a lot of money from DC and Warner, they just want more because their Daddies made it. This is one of the issues with the modern copywrite law which changed in the 70's because of Disney's lawyers. I think shuster doesn't have any direct heirs just a cousin or something. So that complicates thing further.
    F) The heirs really don't want to publish, they just want more money from DC/Warner Bros.

    Worst case scenario they pay the lawyer a lot of money for his part of the copyright(as the contracts now are he gets a controlling share anyway)

    The heirs could publish a book based on the original premis, but if they used anything outside those lines Dc could sue and win. Superman would have to look like this
    http://stta.kinlok.nu/History/beginning/s-1934.jpg

    Dc would still be able to publish their own version due to contracts they made years ago with segal and shuster as they have been paying them royalties for years.

    They basically all have parts of superman, but no one has the whole thing even after 2013.

    Honestly what they do next will depend on the trial and which way it goes.

    As for the movies, I don't think they would want to stop it, because after 2013, they can get more of a percentage out of a successful one. But only time and the legal system will tell.

    ^Cool. Thanks for answering my question. If I didn't have Superman comics and/or movies, I would be one sad panda.
