In 2012, Screenwriter Max Landis (Chronicle, and upcoming American Ultra, Victor Frankenstein) released a short film called The Death and Return of Superman which starred Elijah Wood, Mandy Moore, Ron Howard, Chris Hardwick, Simon Pegg and more. The short, described as “an educational parody,” told the hilarious, literal, insider version what happened in 1992 when DC Comics decided to kill, then resurrect, Superman.
