Review: THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN
Directed By: Sam Liu, Jake Castorena
Based Upon: "The Death of Superman" by DC Comics
Wow. Just wow.
JUST KIDDING. The non-spoiler review is below. I might do a spoiler review after the movie is out on all platforms.
I was enormously impressed with this film. The DC Animated Movie Universe has never caught my eye in the slightest, but this one really takes everything I hated from the last movies and tosses out the window. We get to see a more balanced Clark Kent, yet also a more... troubled Clark. Gah this is hard to do without so many spoilers.
I wish we'd had this fight with Doomsday in Batman versus Superman ok? There I said it. This fight truly pushes Superman to his limits, and there is nothing he can do to stop it. And I love it. The emotional stakes are incredible, and I just really bonded with this movie. We see all of his supporting cast with Lois and Jimmy, and the rest of the Justice League. It feels like everything Clark wants is just in his grasp, and he's just a second away, and then it gets torn away from him.
