Here's a Sneak Peek at DC Animation's THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN Film
Warner Bros. Animation has released a video giving us our first look at footage of their latest DC animated film project The Death of Superman. This is one of DC Comic’s most popular storylines and to make sure they tell the story properly this time, they have split the story up into two full-length films. The first film will be called The Death of Superman and the second film will be called Reign of the Superman.
Warner Bros. previously attempted to adapt this storyline with Superman: Doomsday, but it looks like this one is going to be a lot better. There will be some differences from the comic but this will still stay much closer to the tone and storyline.
To give us a better idea of what this new animated adaptation will entail, the studio released this featurette that gives us some insight from the creative team and some of the key cast members. It also offers some footage that might impress you. Here’s the synopsis that was provided:
When a hulking monster emerges from an underground resting place and begins a mindless rampage, the Justice League is quickly called in to stop the colossal force of nature. But it soon becomes apparent that only Superman can stand against the monstrosity that has been nicknamed Doomsday. Battling their way throughout America, the two fight to a standstill as they reach the heart of Metropolis. Going punch for punch, Superman finally ends the threat of Doomsday as he throws one last punch and collapses forever.
The second film, Reign of the Supermen, will also feature the four Supermen who took Clark's place while he was away. Those characters include Superboy, Steel, Cyborg Superman (Hank Henshaw), and the Eradicator.
The voice cast of the films will include Jerry O'Connell, Rebecca Romijn, Rainn Wilson, Rosario Dawson, Nathan Fillion, Christopher Gorham, Matt Lanter, Shemar Moore, and Jason O'Mara.
Maybe this time around they’ll be able to do this story justice. The Death of Superman will be released later this summer on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital download. The second part, Reign of the Supermen, will arrive early in 2019.
