DC has released the video of Grant Morrison from the Hero Complex Film Festival talking about Superman. Since Morrison has already reinvented Superman once with ALL-STAR, this is familiar but welcome territory.
The final pieces of the DC relaunch are revealed over at Hero Complex, and #52 is revealed as the Grant Morrison/Rags Morales ACTION COMICS #1. A whole new backstory for Superman is teased — probably to be spelled out at tomorrow’s Jim Lee/Geoff Johns event for the LA Times. Dan DiDio also gives a new big picture statement.

The clip was co-directed by frontman/writer Gerard Way and Roboshobo, and definitely seems to have been storyboarded by a mutant combination of Paul Pope and George Miller, featuring a storyline filled with ray guns, roller skating and vampires.
