I recently worked with Marlon Brando.

Well, his voice.

I wrote and directed this DC Universe brand anthem, based on Brando’s monologue in Richard Donner’s first Superman movie.

In it, Jor-El (Superman’s father) guides Kal-El (Superman’s Kryptonian name) through the entire universe. I used the same speech to guide users through DC Universe in this nostalgia-inducing, highly emotional spot.

Sit back and go with him.


The anthem was played to a packed Hammerstein Ballroom to kickoff DC Universe’s New York Comic Con event. The event also featured the first two episodes of the first DC Universe Original Series, Titans, and panels and sneak previews of all their upcoming Originals content.
