I am posting some previews for three new superhero shows coming out this fall and one that was canned.
The Fantastic Four:
This show starts this week! And I don't get Cartoon Network! Can someone tape it for me?! See my other post for more information about this show.
Superman and the Legion of Superheroes:
This DC show features a young Superman who is taken to the 30th century by other teen superheroes. The original comic book from the 70s was called Superboy and the Legion of Superheroes but the license for Superboy is in a legal battle right now so the WB is calling him Superman.
*Also check out this clip taken from the San Diego Comicon. The recording is not that great and the sound is terrible but you do get a good glimpse of some superhero action!
Hellboy Animated: Sword of Storms:
This show is not based off of the Hellboy movie from a few years back but rather the original Dark Horse comic. The style of this show tries to stay true to the style of Hellboy creator Mike Mignola. IDT Entertainment is creating two 74-minute features that will air on Cartoon Network and then will be sent to DVD in 2007.
Plastic Man had a show back in the 70s called The Plastic Man Comedy/Adventure Hour but his character hasn't seen the light of day on television since! Warner Brothers produced this new Plastic Man series but Cartoon Network didn't pick it up so all that exists is this pilot. Check it out!
*UPDATE* The site that was hosting this video removed it yesterday hours after I posted it here. I can only assume that they were contacted by Warner Brothers. Oh well.
But you can see some Plastic Man sketches by the storyboard artist for the pilot, Stephen DeStefano.
