Warner Home Video has released three clips and a gallery of images from Superman vs. The Elite, the next DC Universe animated movie, arriving on June 12.

To watch the "Coldcast" clip, CLICK HERE. Catero Colbert plays Coldcast.

To watch the "Menagerie" clip, CLICK HERE. Melissa Disney plays Menagerie,

To watch "The Hat" clip, CLICK HERE. Andrew Kishno plays The Hat.

Here's how the movie is described:

"Superman's effectiveness as a super hero comes into question when a new group of super powerful crusaders, known as 'The Elite,' appear on the scene. As super heroes, the Elite know no bounds, and are more than willing to kill, even on a massive scale, to stop villainy -- putting them on a collision course with the ever-ethical, yet preferably non-lethal Man of Steel."

The film is written by Joe Kelly and is based on his Action Comics #775 story. It is directed by Michael Chang.

The cast also features George Newbern as Superman, Robin Atkin Downes as Manchester Black, Pauley Perrette as Lois Lan and David Kaufman as Jimmy Olsen.

* Marvel Comics has released art from Astonishing X-Men #50 and #51, involving the proposal and wedding of Jean-Paul Beaubier, aka Northstar, to Kyle Jinadu. The story is written by Marjorie Liu, with art by Mike Perkins.

"The Marvel Universe has always reflected the world outside your window, so we strive to make sure our characters, relationships and stories are grounded in that reality," said Axel Alonso, Marvel's editor in chief. "We've been working on this story for over a year to ensure Northstar and Kyle's wedding reflects Marvel's 'world outside your window' tradition."

Astonishing X-Men #50 will be in stores on Wednesday, with the wedding on June 20 in Astonishing X-Men #51 -- with covers by Dustin Weaver and Marko Djurdjevic.

"The story of Northstar and Kyle is universal, and at the core of everything I write: a powerful love between two people who have to fight for it against all odds," said Liu. "This is the quintessential Marvel story, one that blends the modern world with the fantasy of super heroes in order to tell an exciting story that begins with a wedding -- and continues in ways you can't imagine."
