Critic Reviews for The Death of Superman / Reign of the Supermen Double Feature

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (2)

Both The Death Of Superman and Reign Of The Supermen are occasionally fun, but inessential entries in the animated DC canon, bringing nothing new to a pretty uninspiring story.

January 16, 2019 | Full Review…

After the operatic grandiosity of the live-action movies, this street-level crimefighting is a nostalgic treat.

Top Critic

It's an adaptation that should please the fans and is arguably one of the best Superman movies since Richard Donner was fired, but it's lack of focus won't win too many over.

June 5, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Reign of Supermen is a worthy follow-up to the superior The Death of Superman. Good in action, but lacking in emotion. [Full review in Spanish]

February 7, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Animated sequel with frequent violence and a complex plot.

February 5, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's a solid piece of storytelling, inspired by a beloved chapter in the Man of Steel's comics history, and it captures the right mood for the story in a tight little package.

Audience Reviews for The Death of Superman / Reign of the Supermen Double Feature


The voice cast is solid, and Reign of the Supermen works well as a sequel to last year's The Death of Superman, but it is not one of the various DC Animated universes' truly great entries. At least it wasn't another re-do of a story they've already done.
