Here is your first look at the upcoming Superman/Shazam! The Return of Black Adam animated short that will headline the DC Showcase compilation DVD this fall.
In Superman/Shazam! The Return of Black Adam, Clark Kent's latest interview subject is street kid Billy Batson. What Clark doesn't know is that Billy is more than a feisty kid with a lot of heart – he has been chosen by an ancient wizard to represent the good of man as the World's Mightiest Mortal just by invoking the name of the wizard, "Shazam!" Billy's powers come none-too-soon, as he also discovers he's being pursued by a centuries' old, murderous villain, Black Adam – a foe so powerful, even Superman can't stop him alone. The all-star cast of Superman/Shazam! The Return of Black Adam is led by Jerry O'Connell (Crossing Jordan) as Captain Marvel, George Newbern reprising his Justice League role as Superman, Arnold Vosloo (The Mummy) as Black Adam and two-time Emmy Award® winner James Garner (8 Simple Rules) as The Wizard.
The combined running time of the four shorts in this disc is 62 minutes, with this 22-minute short being the only new content. This price might be a bit high if you already have the other shorts that came packaged with recent DC movies, but if these images are the tip of the iceberg, you may want to shell out the dough! I'm looking forward to it.
