It's A Bird... It's A Plane... It's Bruce Timm! Legendary animation legend and executive producer to many of DC's cartoons and animated movies is teaming up with Man of Steel director Zack Snyder to bring you a Superman short. Guess he's not leaving after all, thank goodnes.

THR broke the news about the Snyder and Timm collaboration. The short is being created with the intention of highlighting Superman's long career (no doubt in tune with the 75 Anniversary). Together they will join Geoff Johns, Jay Oliva and Mike Carlin for this project. Alas the entire thing will only be a few minutes long, and reportedly encompasses almost all of Superman's history ending with the Man of Steel live action recreation. There is no official release date yet but DC will preview the animatic at San Diego Comic-Con this year. Huzzah.
