“Death of Superman” Animated Movie Trailer Coming Tomorrow

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced via Twitter that the official trailer for the “Death of Superman” animated movie will be released tomorrow.

With the upcoming 2-part animated movie “The Death of Superman”, Warner Bros. Animation has promised a more faithful adaptation of the epic comic book story than what was seen in 2007’s “Superman: Doomsday”. And they’re bringing back some familiar voices to take on this massive story.

Jerry O’Connell will return to voice Superman, after having done so in three previous films: “Justice League: Throne of Atlantis,” “Justice League vs. Teen Titans,” and “Justice League Dark”. He will be joined by his wife Rebecca Romijn, who will voice the role of Lois Lane.

Rainn Wilson will take on the role of Lex Luthor, while other voice cast members from previous animated Justice League movies will also return, including Rosario Dawson as Wonder Woman; Nathan Fillion as the Green Lantern; Christopher Gorham as The Flash; Matt Lanter as Aquaman; Shemar Moore as Cyborg; and Jason O’Mara as Batman.

Rocky Carroll will voice Silas Stone (Cyborg’s father) and Patrick Fabian takes on the role of Hank Henshaw (aka Cyborg Superman).

“The Death of Superman” animated movie is due to be released on August 7, 2018 on Blu-ray, DVD, and for digital download, while the second part “Reign of the Supermen” is set to drop in early 2019.

This video looks creepy. Maybe it’s the cape being blown by the wind that I find unsettling.

Its because of the dialogue. “Near death” is in relation to the JL, but obviously Superman given the story here. Its pretty much knowing full well that this is where everything goes south.

They did a pretty good job giving this scene a creepy, and ominous look.

I think changing the JL members fixes the story, mostly bc I know people have wished the classic JLA members were around during the DOS arc. So this is a change that’s welcomed. I wonder if Lois and Clark are seeing each other, and if so, how did he and Diana break up? If not, will they in Reign?

I’m hoping that after the death and return of Superman story arc, that they will go back to giving Superman solo animated movies. It’s nice seeing him with the JL and all, but I want to see animated films where he’s the only hero.
