Did You Know?


J'onn J'onnz is the only other Justice Leaguer, besides Superman himself, who fought Doomsday in both this movie and the original "Death of Superman" comic. In the comic J'onn was under the assumed identity of the superhero Bloodwynd and didn't fight Doomsday as himself like in the film. In both he was taken out of the fight by being hurled into fire, though in the comic it was a burning building and not an exploding gas station like the film. See more »

User Reviews

One of the best DC Animated movies you will ever see
24 July 2018 | by freeskill-67340See all my reviews

Story has been done many times but this one exceeds all expectations. Story telling, choreography of fights, using rest of DC characters are pure perfection. I'm guessing next one is 'Reign of Supermen' because they did wonderful job setting it up for sequel. The creative team behind this movie should be given control over rest of the DC movies... but that is just a dream for now. I will watch this again and again, I finally got perfect Superman movie.
