(June 29, 2009 – Burbank, CA) – The World’s Greatest Super Heroes become America’s most wanted criminals – and are hunted by friends and foes alike – in “Superman/Batman: Public Enemies,” the sixth entry in the popular DVD series of DC Universe Animated Original PG-13 Movies. A co-production of Warner Premiere, DC Comics and Warner Bros. Animation, the full-length animated film will be distributed by Warner Home Video on September 29, 2009. “Superman/Batman: Public Enemies” will be available as a Special Edition 2-disc version on DVD and Blu-ray™ Hi-Def for $24.98 (SRP) and $29.99 (SRP), respectively, as well as single disc DVD for $19.98 (SRP) and On Demand. Order due date for all versions is August 25, 2009. “Superman/Batman: Public Enemies” is based on the popular Jeph Loeb/Ed McGuinness comic series/graphic novel. Animation legend Bruce Timm (“Superman Doomsday,” “Green Lantern”) is executive producer. Michael Goguen (“Justice League: The New Frontier”) is supervising producer. Sam Liu (“The Batman”) is directing a script written by Stan Berkowitz (“Justice League: The New Frontier”). In the film, United States President Lex Luthor uses the oncoming trajectory of a Kryptonite asteroid to frame Superman and declare a $1 billion bounty on the heads of the Man of Steel and his “partner in crime,” Batman. Heroes and villains alike launch a relentless pursuit of Superman and Batman, who must unite – and recruit help – to stave off the action-packed onslaught, stop the asteroid, and uncover Luthor’s devious plot to take command of far more than North America.
