DC Comics has been fanboying over their extensive catalogue that spans the breadth of classic comic book history and transposing them into animations. So when you have The Dark Knight Returns and The Killing Joke making their way to our screens in solid animated pieces, one key moment in comic book history has yet to be immortalised in the moving image — the death of Superman. Until now.
You remember when DC’s run melted the Man of Steel down to nothing. It was world news. The iconic cape was not tatters on a makeshift flagpole planted in a see of rubble. Iconic stuff. Now DC + Warner Animations are set to release the animation feature The Death Of Superman.
The all-star cast is led by Jerry O’Connell, Rebecca Romijn and Rainn Wilson as the voices of Superman, Lois Lane and Lex Luthor, respectively. Sam Liu co-directs the animation with Jake Castorena.
