The idea was to start with Siegel and Shuster and end with Henry Cavill, stopping at all the high points and iconic moments in between.‘It was Zack Snyder’s idea,’ says Timm.
We had approached him about maybe doing a short for the DC Nation program on Cartoon Network. He said, ‘I’ll think about it,’ and then he had this idea to do basically the entire history of Superman in, like, a minute. We said, ‘Okay … whoooo.’ We started working and quickly realized there was no way to do it, even in a minute.Check out the short, which will air on Cartoon Network on Wednesday, October 16 at 6:58 p.m. ET as well as will be included on the Blu-ray for Man of Steel this November.

Animation, this short follows Superman through the years, from his first appearance on the cover of Action Comics #1 to Henry Cavill in this year’s Man of Steel…all in two minutes!
