Warner Bros. has released the first Superman: Red Son trailer which is an adaptation of the three-issue, 2003 miniseries by Mark Millar, Dave Johnson, and Killian Plunkett. It is a tale that paints the hero that everyone knows in a completely different light. As one can see from the official trailer, the film aims to recontextualize the famed DC hero and puts him at the centre of a world war. He is not a symbol of hope, but a symbol of fear.

The film recreates the Man of Steel who grows up to become a soldier who is a symbol of the Soviet Union. Soon, the world changes drastically from what is known - bringing Superman into conflict with Batman, Lex Luthor, and other known characters. Apart from Batman, the story also features a whole bunch of other popular DC characters, like Wonder Woman and Green Lantern. The fans had earlier received a major update about the animated adaptation in the form of a picture of Russian Batman, and with the trailer release, the fans can finally watch it.
