Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced that fans will soon have two options when it comes to watching the two-part DC UNIVERSE feature-length animated films, “The Death of Superman” and “Reign of the Supermen” TOGETHER!
As you know, Superman’s greatest adventure – his death and rebirth – will be unveiled in a special two-day exclusive theatrical event as Warner Bros. and DC join forces with Fathom Events for a double feature presentation of the previously released “The Death of Superman” and the first in-theater screening of the all-new “Reign of the Supermen” nationwide. The films will screen in more than 500 select movie theaters on Sunday, January 13 at 12:55pm and Monday, January 14 at 8:00pm (all local times) through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network (DBN). Tickets for The Death of Superman/Reign of the Supermen Double Feature can be purchased at Fandango.com and participating theater box offices.
And later this year, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release the two movies as a single, full-length film with never-before-seen extended footage and a collectible item within the box set. Details will be released in the coming months.
Along with this announcement an all-new video clip featuring Steel (voiced by Cress Williams) and Jimmy Olsen (voiced by Max Mittleman) has been released, together with a few still images from the scene.
In 1993 a novel was published titled “The Death and Life of Superman” by author Roger Stern, which brought together the dramatic story of the Man of Steel’s death, the fates of Clark Kent, Lois Lane, Ma and Pa Kent, the Justice League, and the reign of the four super-beings who mysteriously appeared after Superman’s funeral, each claiming to be the real Last Son of Krypton… to the incredible story of Superman’s triumphant return!
