The classic style was desired by Warner Home Video, with Curt Geda adding more humor and romance than previously explored in the animated series. Despite the film's visual style being the same as Superman: The Animated Series (as are the majority of its returning voice cast), writer Duane Capizzi has stated the film was not intended to be in continuity with the DC Animated Universe.
