Where were you when Superman died? At Wondercon 2007 DC Comics announced they would be making a few straight to DVD animated feature films, one of which includes an adaptation of the Superman: Doomsday series. The storyline was a major media event, and one of the best selling comic books of all time.
In the comic book series, Superman engages in battle with a seemingly unstoppable killing machine named Doomsday in the streets of Metropolis. At the fight’s conclusion, both combatants were killed. The crossover depicted the world’s reaction to Superman’s death in “Funeral For a Friend,” the emergence of four individuals claiming to be the “new” Superman, and the eventual return of the original Superman in “Reign of the Supermen!”
Now you can watch a trailer for the planned DVD release. Unfortunately it doesn’t appear like DC comics spent much on the animation. The movie will be released in late 2007/early 2008.
