Evil Terrorizes Metropolis In Brief New 'Superman Vs. The Elite' Clip

A new (very short) clip has been released from Warner Bros. Animation's upcoming direct-to-home-video movie "Superman vs. The Elite." In this brief snippet from the film it looks like things aren't boding well for the citizens of Metropolis.

This new incarnation of evil is also shown in some new images from the animated feature that you can see over at SuperHeroHype. Though it seems like the skull-headed baddie is up to no good in the clip, at least we see in one image that Superman has him under control. It's the Elites that he should really be worried about, though.

According to the plot synopsis for "Superman vs. The Elite," Superman's effectiveness as a superhero comes into question when a new group of super powerful crusaders, known as "The Elite," appear on the scene. As super heroes, the Elite know no bounds and are more than willing to kill, even on a massive scale, to stop villainy—putting them on a collision course with the ever-ethical, yet preferably non-lethal Man of Steel.

"Superman vs. The Elite" is due out on June 12.
