Warner Bros. announced their plan to release two feature-length animated movies to mark the 25th anniversary of the iconic Death and Return of Superman at San Diego Comic-Con 2017. The first trailer for the first installment, The Death of Superman, is now available online.
In the 90-plus second trailer, Doomsday arrives on Earth and unleashes his wrath on innocent civilians. Justice League members Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash, and Green Lantern do all they can to stop the murderous monster, but all their efforts fall short. As the Man of Steel takes off to join the fray, he says:
There’s one thing I can’t stand: a bully.

The Warner Bros. flick Superman: Doomsday from 2007 loosely adapted the DC Comics Death of Superman run from 1992-1993, but the upcoming two-part adaptation is likely to be much more faithful to the original story. The studio hasn’t set an official release date, but the first movie should be available on home media by the end of this year.
