The Man of Steel will be voice for the first time by a Filipino-American actor — Darren Criss. He’ll make his debut in the animated feature, Superman: The Man of Tomorrow.
You might remember the half-Filipino/half-Caucasian actor from his role as vicious killer Andrew Cunanan in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story. He’s currently starring in Ryan Murphy’s Netflix drama Hollywood, where he plays a half-Filipino with big picture aspirations.
Criss’s Clark Kent is a mild-mannered journalism intern at the Daily Planet in the film, which focuses on the young hero’s journey to become the superman we all know and love. He’ll also face off with Lex Luthor, voiced by Star Trek‘s Zachary Quinto.
Superman: The Man of Tomorrow will fly into homes this summer on digital download, Blu-ray and Ultra HD.
