Superman/Batman: Apocalypse on DVD this September 28

Superman/Batman: Apocalypse is a direct-to-video animated film based on the Superman/Batman comic storyline "The Supergirl from Krypton" and is a sequel to Superman/Batman: Public Enemies. The art style is partly based on that of Michael Turner, who penciled the Superman/Batman comic book arc. The film is the ninth in the DC Universe Animated Original Movies line released by Warner Premiere and Warner Bros. Animation and the first sequel in the line. It is set to be released on September 28, 2010. The film stars Tim Daly as Clark Kent/Superman, Kevin Conroy as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Andre Braugher as Darkseid, Summer Glau as Kara Zor-El/Supergirl, Susan Eisenberg as Princess Diana/Wonder Woman, and Edward Asner as Granny Goodness.

After a spaceship splashes down in Gotham City Harbor, Batman and Superman encounter a mysterious Kryptonian with powers as great as those of the Man of Steel. The Kryptonian is soon revealed to be Kara, who is the cousin of Superman. Superman takes her under his wing to educate her about the ways of Earth. However, the villainous Darkseid has other plans. Big Barda has just escaped and Darkseid is looking for a capable fighter to take over the Female Furies. He sends Granny Goodness to abduct Supergirl and brainwashes her so he can gain control of her, utilizing the powerful Kryptonian to do his bidding. It's up to Batman, Wonder Woman, Big Barda and Superman to save Kara, but they'll have to take the fight to Darkseid within his hostile world – where unknown, deadly threats lurk around every corner, including a brainwashed Kryptonian able to match Superman blow-for-blow. They recruit Big Barda since she has intimate knowledge of Darkseid's home and was able to escape Apokolips before.
