Marketing has begun to ramp up for My Adventures with Superman as a new teaser was officially released. 

The upcoming animated series is set to revolve around Clark Kent's younger days as he tries to balance being Superman and a reporter from Daily Planet. Jack Quaid is the voice of the Man of Steel alongside Alice Lee as Lois Lane and Ishmel Sahid as Jimmy Olsen. 

Warner Bros. already confirmed that the show is set to begin airing later this year during the Adult Swim block on Cartoon Network.

Will This DC TV Show Affect Superman: Legacy?

My Adventures with Superman offers another fresh interpretation of Clark Kent's story in animated form. The upcoming TV show is confirmed to already have two seasons, giving it many opportunities to explore a different side of the famous DC hero. 

Interestingly, My Adventures with Superman's premise is similar to James Gunn's Superman: Legacy since it focuses on a younger version of the Man of Steel. 

While it's possible that there are key plot points that could end up being the same, Gunn's interpretation combined with his passion to create a powerful Superman story on the big screen could still stand out.

In all, My Adventures with Superman will give DC fans something to look forward to before the hero's eventual comeback in theaters in 2025.

My Adventures with Superman will premiere on Adult Swim later this summer.
