MY ADVENTURES WITH SUPERMAN: Family-Friendly Animated Series Flies To HBO Max And Cartoon Network
HBO Max and Cartoon Network have ordered a two-season series for My Adventures with Superman, a kid and family-oriented animated series that follows the adventures of Clark Kent, Lois Lane, and Jimmy Olsen.
Batman isn't the only DC superhero getting a new animated series. HBO Max and Cartoon Network have announced a two-season series order for My Adventures with Superman.
Whereas Batman: Caped Crusader seems to have more of an adult tone as the Dark Knight returns to his noir roots, My Adventures with Superman is targeting a younger, more family-friendly audience as it "follows the action-packed, comedic and romantic adventures of Superman and Lois Lane."
The synopsis teases:
In this serialized coming-of-age story, we follow Clark as he builds his secret Superman identity and embraces his role as the hero of Metropolis - and perhaps the world. Lois, now growing into a star investigative journalist, takes aspiring photographer Jimmy Olsen under her wing. All the while, Clark and Lois are falling in love, sharing adventures, taking down bad guys, stumbling over secrets, and discovering what it means to be Superman and Lois Lane.
Clark Kent/Superman will be voice by Jack Quad (The Boys), while Alice Lee (Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist) will voice Lois Lane. Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!) is serving as executive producer with Jake Wyatt (Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus) and Brendan Clogher (Voltron: Legendary Defender) on board as co-executive producers and Josie Campbell (She-Ra and the Princesses of Power) as co-producer.
“It’s been a great partnership working with Cartoon Network and HBO Max to bring more DC Super Heroes to the platform in new and creatively interesting ways,” said Sam Register, President of Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studios. “This is the first animated Superman series in many years and we want to tell our Superman story through the trio of Clark, Lois, and Jimmy - whose relationship dynamic will allow for rich, serialized, and engaging stories as we explore their lives as individuals and their journey together as friends.”
