Bruce Timm who’s known for his DC Comics animation from movies to television series, confirmed in a recent Q&A for the premiere of his latest animated movie Batman: Gotham by Gaslight, that he’s wants his next project to be on popular elseworld Superman comic book mini-series Superman: Red Son, if Batman: Gotham by Gaslight ends up being successful.
Batman: Gotham by Gaslight releases January 23rd on digital and on homevideo on February 6th.
Superman: Red Son’s comic book summary is as followed:
Superman’s rocket ship lands on a Ukrainian collective farm rather than in Kansas, an implied reason being a small time difference (a handful of hours) from the original timeline, meaning Earth’s rotation placed Ukraine in the ship’s path instead of Kansas. Instead of fighting for “… truth, justice, and the American Way”, Superman is described in Soviet radio broadcasts “… as the Champion of the common worker who fights a never-ending battle for Stalin, socialism, and the international expansion of the Warsaw Pact.” His “secret identity” (i.e. the name his adoptive parents gave him) is a state secret.
