Almost 25 years after DC’s Death of Superman rocked the comics world, DC Animation is bringing the heartbreaking story to the screen. The Death of Superman, the first of a two-part animated movie series made up of Death and Reign of the Supermen, will be the 10th film in the DC Animated Movie Universe.
In The Death of Superman, “Superman and the rest of the Justice League unite to battle a hulking monster named Doomsday — but it’s ultimately up to the Man of Steel to save the day as the two titans square off in the heart of Metropolis.”
The cast of The Death of Superman — Jerry O’Connell (Superman/Clark Kent), Rebecca Romijn (Lois Lane), and Christopher Gorham (Flash/Barry Allen) — spoke with SYFY WIRE at San Diego Comic-Con 2018 about just how much this movie is going to make us all cry. In short: Have more tissues on hand than you think you’ll need.

The Death of Superman will be available for digital purchase on July 24 and on Blu-ray on August 7.
