A new animated series featuring Krypton’s most famous lad is headed to HBO Max and Cartoon Network.
“My Adventures with Superman” will fix on a twenty-something Clark Kent (voiced by Jack Quaid of “The Hunger Games” and “The Boys”), as opposed to the slightly older chap seen on the bigscreen.
“Superman has remained one of the most iconic and beloved Super Heroes in the world,” said Amy Friedman, Head of Kids & Family Programming. “This fresh take from the Warner Bros. Animation team delivers a modern, relatable Clark Kent alongside a fearless, whip smart Lois Lane who are navigating the small tasks of both becoming adults and trying to save the world.”
Quaid, who also lends his lungs to animated series “Star Trek : Lower Decks”, tells ComicBook.com that he’s feeling the pressure taking on such an iconic role.
“I love it. It is a challenge, but I see it mostly as an opportunity, not even an opportunity, just I get to be able to play in all of these different universes,’ Quiad says. “I mean, the fact that I’m in Star Trek, and Superman, and this crazy messed up universe where superheroes are real and are drugged from birth to become superhuman. That’s insane.
“Back to what you were saying about tones, I love playing around with the different tones,” he continues. “This is what you always want as an actor is just to be able to play. The fact that I can exist in a world where superheroes are very dangerous. And then also start this thing coming up where I’m playing a character who’s super altruistic. There’s no sarcasm to him. He is just pure, you know what I mean? And the show is more or less a family show for all ages, so it’s cool. I don’t know. I really don’t know what else to say besides, it’s a gift. It’s a gift to be able to play around in these different worlds. And not only that, play around with different versions of these worlds. Yeah. I feel very lucky.”
Alice Lee (”Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist”) will voice Lois Lane.
Two of DC's finest in two brand new animated series! 🙌
