There Was a Mandate to Make Superman “As Hot as Possible” in MY ADVENTURES WITH SUPERMAN — GeekTyrant

While we wait for My Adventures with Superman to return to Adult Swim with Season 2, the creative team behind the series are talking about the character designs and how there was a mandate to make Clark Kent aka Superman as “hot as possible.”

During an interview with CB, Co-Producer Josie Campbell and Co-Executive Producers Jake Wyatt and Brendan Clogher were asked if there was a mandate to make Clark hot.

Wyatt responded: “Why wouldn’t there be? There’s actually a mandate to make everyone as hot as possible, but especially Clark.

“Early on in retakes, when we were revising animation, we sent the note to mirror that Clark has big, beautiful Disney Princess eyes. Right, Clark is a space princess and must always be treated as such. Yes, Clark has to be beautiful all the time.” 

So, that offers you some insight on how the creative team is approaching this series. I can’t help but laugh at this as if there are people going around talking about how hot cartoon Clark Kent is… there probably are, though.

My Adventures with Superman is a serialized “coming-of-age story centered on twenty-somethings Clark Kent, Lois Lane, and Jimmy Olsen as they discover who they are, together.”

In this new season, “the three best friends face a host of new threats. Powerful foes will emerge from Clark’s alien past, Amanda Waller will take aim at Superman, Lois will grapple with the future, and Jimmy Olsen will spend an unbelievable amount of money.”

“Krypton is coming for our young heroes, and its arrival will test their strength, loyalty, and love like never before.”

The series stars Jack Quaid as Superman/Clark Kent, Alice Lee as Lois Lane, and Ishmel Sahid as the voice of Jimmy Olsen.

Sam Register serves as executive producer. Jake Wyatt and Brendan Clogher serve as co-executive producers and showrunners. Josie Campbell serves as co-producer. 

Season 2 of the series will debut on Adult Swim with two back-to-back episodes, followed by one new episode every Saturday. New episodes will also stream Sundays on Max.

The series comes from Warner Bros. Animation and it will premiere Saturday, May 25, at midnight ET/PT on Adult Swim.
