Superman vs. The Elite Blu-ray Release Date Announced

Warner Bros. kicks off the summer with a Superman animated adventure!

Following the success of Justice League: Doom, Warner Home Entertainment will bring Superman vs. The Elite to Blu-ray on June 12th. This newest DC Universe adventure details the confrontation between Superman and a group of violent antiheroes.

Warner's official synopsis is provided below:
"The Elite, a team of super-powered antiheroes, is renowned for killing their enemies. Despite the acclaim and approval the Elite enjoy, Superman knows they are in the wrong, creating more harm than good by their methods. Tensions between them finally culminate in a mass showdown on Jupiter's moons, when Superman is forced to prove that violence is never a positive."

George Newbern (Justice League) returns to voice the Man of Steel, and is joined by Pauley Perrette (NCIS) who plays Lois Lane.
