The late 1990s show Superman: The Animated Series is revered among fans as one of the greatest comic adaptations ever, and now the Man of Steel has gotten the bona-fide animated treatment. Want to see that epic trailer recut in 1990s style?

Some fans have made it happen, and the results are nothing if not inspired. Yes, the series was a little campy, but it was cutting-edge at the time. With Zack Snyder’s grand soundtrack in the background, it’s absolutely hilarious to see some of those classic animated scenes in the place of the big-budget blockbuster.

But, truth be told, it’s still pretty great. I mean, who wouldn’t want to see this movie? You’d save a ton on the effects budget, and it’d be hard to beat that nostalgia factor. Here’s hoping DC will see the potential and go ahead with an animated version, just for the sheer awesomeness factor.
