The film’s synopsis is shared below:

“When a hulking monster emerges from an underground resting place and begins a mindless rampage, the Justice League is quickly called in to stop the colossal force of nature. But it soon becomes apparent that only Superman can stand against the monstrosity that has been nicknamed Doomsday. Battling their way throughout America, the two fight to a standstill as they reach the heart of Metropolis. Going punch for punch, Superman finally ends the threat of Doomsday as he throws one last punch and collapses forever.”

The Death of Superman will come out on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital later in the summer. It is a two-part story, and the second part titled Reign of the Superman will be out early next year.

This will be the second time that “The Death of Superman” has been made as a DC Universe animated film. The first time a DC Universe Original Movie came out was the Superman: Doomsday, which tried to squeeze the whole story into a solitary, 75-minute film. Now that there are two films to make, The Death of Superman and Reign of Superman are expected to be much more comic book faithful.

Mike Carlin, Dan Jurgens, Roger Stern, Louise Simonson, Jerry Ordway and Karl Kessel had created the original “Death of Superman” story. The Kryptonian’s death in the Superman#75 was a high point of the speculations in the 1990s. It was succeeded by the “Funeral for a Friend” narrative, which showed Superman’s dear ones, including various DC Comics universe heroes, mourning and in attendance at Superman’s funeral.

For several months after depicting his death, Superman comics remained out of print, until The Adventures of Superman #500 arrived in stores, providing the first glimpse of Superman’s revival. The issue had also given a preview of the four new Supermen. Each of the substitutes was given one of the old Superman titles during the “Reign of the Superman” run.
