SUPERMAN RETURNS FROM DC DIRECT

DC Direct, the toy and collectibles division or brand of DC Comics, on Thursday announced a partnership with collectibles manufacturer Weta Limited, a division of Weta Workshop, to distribute highly detailed statues inspired by moments from the upcoming Warner Bros. Pictures╣ feature film Superman Returns.

The line, art directed for Weta by Superman Returns director Bryan Singer, will make its debut at the 2006 American International Toy Fair and will feature limited edition, high-end polystone statues.

"While it has been exciting working on the movie, it has also been a most rewarding and enjoyable experience working with Weta to create a range of high-end collectibles," Singer said. "Special moments from the film have now been memorialized by their craftsmanship, serving as tributes to the work and the fans alike."

The distribution arrangement between Weta and DC Direct was designed to maximize each partner╣s ability to reach target enthusiasts for collectibles based on the film.

DC Direct will supply product to the U.S. Specialty market, and Weta will distribute in Australia and New Zealand, while also serving collectors via the internet worldwide.

Products include The Returning son (20" by 20" by 13"), The Daily Planet (25 by 12 by 8), Fallen Hero (22 by 19 by 16) and Disaster Averted (26 by 14 by 14).
