Directors Zack Snyder and Bruce Timm worked with Warner Bros. Animation to create a 75th anniversary video about Superman.

you’re going to want to watch it again because there’s a lot to take in. In fact, there’s so much going on that no one could blame you if missed a few references or if a few moments had you scratching your head. So to help you keep track of all of the details, nods and references in the short, we thought we’d put together a list of annotations. Seventy-five of them. That’s right, in honor of Superman’s 75th year, we present our 75 points of annotation about the Superman 75th Anniversary short.
