The film includes five new features titled The Legion Behind The Legion, Meet the Legionnaires, Brainiac Attack: The Intellect Behind the Super-Villain, and Down to Earth: The Story of Supergirl.

This will be the sixth film in this continuity and is directed by Green Lantern: Beware of my power Jeff Wamester.

The story will see Superman bring a newly minted Supergirl to the 31st Century to train with the Legion of Super Heroes. It’s all about Kara adjusting to her new life while honing her powers as a new threat looms on the horizon.
