DC movies did not attend San Diego Comic-Con. However, they still assured fans that they will leave Hall H satisfied. For fans, DC put up Superman Red Son storyline.
Batman Hush was the main attraction for DC Animated fans. During the panel premiere, DC announced that 2020 will start DC’s slate with Red Son adaptation. This was not the only attraction, WB also announced Superman: Man of Tomorrow to be released in 2020.
However, unlike Red Son, Man of Tomorrow will be an original film. Superman: Red Son will be based on the pretty famous comic book Red Son. This storyline is not related to the original timeline of DC comics. It is an Elseworld comic and is based on ‘What would’ve happened if”?
DC Superman Red Son
It was scripted by Mark Miller in 2003. The storyline follows as Superman’s ship lands in USSR rather than Kansas. The timeline follows that of the cold war. There are also other good Elseworlds comics that can be adapted. Some of them are,
- Dark Knight of the Round table.
- Superman: Kal
- Elseworld’s finest
- Justice League: Created Equally.
I came up with the idea of Superman Red Son when I was 6, pitched it to @dccomics when I was 13, sold it when I was 27 and it was published when I was 33. The lesson of this story is not TENACITY. It's getting your story right at 6 and not wasting all that time! #TBT pic.twitter.com/xT0I347liH

Other characters in the movie will include Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Brainiac and the arch-nemesis Lex Luthor. Superman’s animated movies have become quite common now. 2019 also started with Reign of Supermen which was a sequel to 2018’s Death of Superman.
"Superman: Red Son" is a DC comic series chronicling an alternate Superman timeline where he lands in the Soviet Union instead of the United States.
