DC Comics is reporting that Superman: Red Son will kick off next yearís three-movie lineup, which also includes an original Superman tale and a sequel to one of DCís 2017 animated films.

The seminal graphic novel by Mark Millar, Dave Johnson and Killian Plunkett that serves as the inspiration behind 2020ís first DC Universe Movie. Originally released in 2003, Superman: Red Son is set in the thick of the Cold War, which introduces us to a Superman who landed in the USSR during the 1950s and grows up to become a Soviet symbol that fights for the preservation of Stalinís brand of communism.

The release of Justice League Dark: Apokolips War, a follow-up to 2017ís successful Justice League Dark will be released in the Spring. One of DCís few R-rated animated movies, Justice League Dark saw Batman helping to assemble a team of occult and magic-based heroes to combat a series of supernatural attacks.

The 2020 DC Universe Movie slate will then wrap up with a standalone film called Superman: Man of Tomorrow, making this the first time two Superman-centered DC Universe Movies will be released in the same year. The fully original story featuring a young Superman early in his career. No additional details on what we can expect from this one, including who the villain or villains of the movie may be and what other characters may appear alongside the Man of Steel.

Superman Red Son, I always thought this was a good story and wished they would do more with it. Just hoping they don't drop the ball on the animated movie. Like the way they made his suit in red son too. Good news here.

Their track record hasn't been great lately. One would think that writing a good story faithful to the comic and hiring good voice actors was somehow impossible, since they haven't managed to pull off both since Dark Knight Returns.
