THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN Animated Trailer Updates the Classic Story

THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN Animated Trailer Updates the Classic Story

In 2007, DC Entertainment released the first of their animated movies, Superman: Doomsday. It retold the story of the Death of Superman arc from the comics, but without any of the other heroes from the DC Universe. While it was a good start to their animated films, it didn’t have the same weight as the original print version. 11 years later, DC is recreating the comic feel with the release of The Death of Superman, the first of a two-part story updating the battle between Doomsday and the Man of Steel. Here is a look at the trailer:

This movie looks more faithful to its comic inspiration, but there are a few differences between the two. Whereas the comic version had Doomsday fighting Justice League International, the movie has him fighting the modern-day League, from the current animated universe which began with Justice League: War. It adds more drama to the story when Superman is the only one left after Doomsday has taken down the greatest roster of heroes DC has to offer (Don’t get us wrong. We LOVE Booster Gold, but, c’mon).

Another big change is the character of Lex Luthor. In the comics, Lex had died and come back as a clone of himself disguised as his long-lost son (because comics). It looks like we are getting the regular old bald and evil Lex we love to hate.

Featuring the voices of Jerry O’Connell, Rosario Dawson, Rainn, Wilson, and Rebecca Romijn, The Death of Superman will be released on Blu-ray on August 7 and digital on July 24, with part two, Reign of the Supermen, coming out in early 2019.
