    It surprises me than the list doesn't include Return to Krypton, either the original version or the 2000 version or an adaptation from both. That could be an interesting story to see animated. Superman and the Legion is also a good option to animate.
    Either way I voted Multiversity , Exile and Speeding bullets. We already have enough origin stories to enjoy.

    Sorry man I tried to pick ones I wanted to see and ones I thought were likely, but I wouldn’t mind seeing Return to Krypton. I just hope we don’t have to wait too long to get the next Superman movie.

    I’m embarrassed I didn’t include Time and Time Again. Phenomenal story, although would it only work as a standalone do you think?

    Secret Origin, Last Son and Lois & Clark from that list.

    I would also like 'For the Man Who Has Everything' to get an adaption. I know it was already adapted on Justice League Unlimited. But another (more faithful) adaptation would be nice. As well as 'Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?'.

    Don't worry. I also hope the same.
    I must confesse than I would like to see Return to Krypton animated because is Back to the future but with Superman.

    I'd love a bunch of these!

    Exile would be high on the list, but I don't know if I have confidence that they can do it right.


    Action vol 2 would be great, and I have another thought with that... they should keep more of these stories separated into their various universes, tell several of them and establish them.. and then lead that into multiversity/etc.

    We've seen so many team-up shows at this point, some multiversal team-ups would be something right up DC's alley.

    Yeah, I think a Time and Time Again movie could work as a standalone. Superman on tour of the DCU's history. You'd probably have to simplify some of the Legion stuff to remove references to the Pocket Universe, possibly replacing it with references to a story more like Superman and the Legion, probably change it so that Linear Man doesn't blow up the moon, add some focus on Superman's fight with Dev-Em... but overall I think that the JSA story, the Nazi story, the Camelot story... it's all over the place, but in a way that's basically a "greatest hits of DC's non 20th/21st century characters", and I think that could be a really fun movie. I'd absolutely love to watch a Time and Time Again movie.

    The problem with a lot of the ones listed (and the Morrison Action) is that they are origins of one sort or another (Birthright, Secret Identity. Speeding Bullets, Secret Origin). I thought that next to killing Superman or turning him evil, the next trope we were all sick of was "origin stories".

    That being the case, I nominate some Silver/Bronze age stuff they could adapt and update:

    Lexor: A trilogy. Lex forcing a battle on Superman in a place Superman has no powers. Lex returns to same place after a later downfall to find that he is a hero to the inhabitants and finds romance. Lex and Superman have second battle which results in Lex losing his family and the entire civilization.

    Nightwing & Flamebird: Superman and Jimmy Olsen become the Dynamic Duo of a Kryptonian city. Could use time-travel to combine in "Superman's Return to Krypton" elements if they thought Kandor was too complicated.

    The Sand Superman Saga.

    I picked the Death of Clark Kent, and I thought of that one before even seeing the poll option. I really dig Kenny Braverman and was upset that he wasn't Whitney in Smallvile. That was a missed opportunity, in my opinion. All you would have had to have done was change the character's name to Kenny Braverman, and then he could have come back at some time as Conduit when Clark was fighting through his rogues. Would've been great.

    If there have animated series,then I will chose new krypton.This story digging krypton's from many facets.Like religion,technology,social structure.And also in a world without superman story,we could see legion of super-heroes,superman family,mon-el,captain atom.......
    But unfortunately,supes maybe haven't animated series for next many years...................
    Same reason to multiversity,it's require not just one animated film to complete it's whole story
    So,I will chose birthright.Considering it's movie time length(1 hour maybe),It should be satisfied to telling the story

    Seconded! Holy crap yes - "Time and Time Again" would make a great standalone animated movie.

    I think the only reason the origins are fine in the animated is that people see them as separate; in keeping with the "your favorite stories come to life" kinda thing. That's not the same as that being a new origin for a new movie or something, if that makes any sense.

    Brilliant idea for some Bronze age and Silver Age stories, though! That rarely gets touched on, but there's a lot of great stuff in there.

    As a matter of fact, a proper Golden Age one wouldn't be bad - covering the first arcs of Superman ever.

    Animated films are different - there hasn't once been a Superman origin animated film.
