The World’s Finest has published its review of DC Universe Movie’s The Death and Return of Superman, now available to own on physical and digital media. In short, The Death and Return of Superman is an enjoyable, lengthy adaptation of the classic Superman comic event that hits much, much more of the right notes then the wrong. It also feels like the preferred way to experience this animated adaptation. Watching the story unfold as it was originally presented, as two separate features, does work just fine, but this version just plays out better. To read the complete review, click on the image below.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment describes The Death and Return of Superman as follows:
The Death and Return of Superman finds Superman in a fight to the finish when the Man of Steel becomes the only hero who can stand in the way of the monstrous creature Doomsday and his unstoppable rampage. Superman saves the planet, but not himself, leaving Earth’s citizens – and his heroic contemporaries – dealing with a world without Superman. The aftermath of Superman’s death, and the subsequent disappearance of his body, leads to a new mystery – is Superman still alive? The question is further complicated when four new super-powered individuals – Steel, Cyborg Superman, Superboy and the Eradicator – emerge to proclaim themselves as the ultimate hero. In the end, only one will be able to proclaim himself the world’s true Superman.
