DC produced a trailer for Superman: Year One similar to what they did for Batman Last Knight on Earth.

Superman Year One is the latest title to come out of DC’s Black Label line. Written by legendary writer, Frank Miller with art by John Romita, Jr.  It reveals the origin of the version of Superman that appears in The Dark Knight Returns. This is a non-canon, origin story that is not tied down by continuity like Superman: Earth One or Superman: Birthright. Therefore, it is not meant to redefine or reboot the main timeline origin story of Superman.

The official description is:

From the burning world of Krypton to the bucolic fields of Kansas, the first chapter of Superman Year One tracks Clark Kent’s youth in Kansas, as he comes to terms with his strange powers and struggles to find his place in our world. DC BLACK LABEL is proud to present the definitive origin of Superman as rendered by the legendary comics creators Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.!

The trailer uses animated imagery from all three issues of the prestige-format miniseries. It features familiar images seen in all versions of Superman’s origin. Scenes such as Kal-el’s ship escaping Krypton, Jonathon and Martha Kent finding baby Clark and Clark learning to fly. But it also reveals new ideas, such as Clark joining the military. You can check it below!

Despite not being tied to current continuity, it is interesting that this title would be released now. In Doomsday Clock #10 which was just released, it’s revealed that Superman is the center of what is known as the Metaverse. Any time there is a change to Superman, regardless of which universe, there is a ripple effect of changes that occur throughout the entire DC Universe. It doesn’t necessarily contradict anything, but the timing could not be more noteworthy because it could certainly lead to future stories that intersect.

Superman: Year One #1 is now available in print or digital formats.
