Supe in 120 Seconds

From start to now.

... In honor of the hero’s 75th anniversary, Man of Steel director Zack Snyder and DC animated universe maestro Bruce Timm have crafted this two-minute animated short, which blasts through the highlights of the character’s many incarnations, from comics, to movies, video games, and even pop art. ...

“It was Zack Snyder’s idea,” says Timm, ... “We had approached him about maybe doing a short for the DC Nation program on Cartoon Network. He said, ‘I’ll think about it,’ and then he had this idea to do basically the entire history of Superman in, like, a minute. We said, ‘Okay … whoooo.’ We started working and quickly realized there was no way to do it, even in a minute.”

Mr. Timm and Co. got a lot of history in, everything from the Fleischers' original cartoon series to the most recent live-action feature, and most (but not all) of the video games, cartoons and t.v. series in between.
