'Superman: Unbound' animated trailer unveiled by DC - watch
The trailer, which shows Supergirl relating the tale of the villain Brainiac's attack on Krypton, debuted on Nerdist.
The animated feature is loosely based on Geoff Johns and Gary Frank's Action Comics story 'Brainiac', which rebooted Superman's first encounter with the alien collector of bottled cities.
The voice cast features Matt Bomer as Superman, John Noble as Brainiac, Molly Quinn as Kara Zor-El/Supergirl and Stana Katic as Lois Lane.
Another of Johns's Superman stories - 'Last Son' - is due to be reprinted as part of DC Comics' Free Comic Book Day 2013 offering.
Superman: Unbound is yet to receive an official release date but is expected to arrive in the spring on DVD, Blu-ray and digital download.
