A Supercut of DC COMICS Movies’ Fake Deaths

It’s a time honored tradition for movies to attempt to trick the audience into believing an important character has died only to bring them back at the most dramatic moment possible. But the superhero genre goes to that well more often than most–perhaps because comic books have always played fast and loose with the rules of resurrection. Nobody’s going to blink an eye if a superhero appears to die and then come back in time for the final battle. DC Comics‘ superhero movies have so many instances of this that YouTuber Dimitri Bitu was able to put together a supercut of every fake death those films. And don’t worry, the cut isn’t as bleak as you may think.

And what have we learned from this supercut? It’s a reminder only Superman and the Joker have had two fake deaths, although there could be a debate about whether the Man of Steel actually died in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Two different versions of Catwoman also met their fake ends from a high drop. Amazingly, Batman‘s only had one significant fake out death in all of his cinematic adventures. Christopher Nolan almost got away with it too, because The Dark Knight Rises was meant to be Nolan’s final word on Bruce Wayne’s alter ego. Suicide Squad‘s Harley Quinn had the fastest fake death at only a few seconds, which happens to be one of the funniest parts of this video.

What’s your favorite fake death in the DC superhero movies? Let’s discuss in the comment section below!
