just a quick update here...

Superman Doomsday has been given a full release date as 18th September 2007.

press release

=============

On September 18, 2007, Warner Home Video will release Superman Doomsday on DVD. The animated feature for young adults regarding the death of Superman will feature tons of bonus materials and extra features. It will be available for the MSRP (Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price) of $19.98.

The Superman Doomsday DVD will feature the following bonus materials:

  • "The Clash of the Juggernauts" - A retrospective look at the craze which caught the world by storm.

  • The Artists Playground…From Art to Sound Design in Superman Doomsday - Producer Bruce Timm and his creative team of writers, animators and designers will take us on an exciting journey of character evolution.

  • Justice League: The New Frontier - Sneak peak of the next DC Universe Original Movie

  • Defeat Doomsday: Battle Challenge - Battle as Superman to defeat Doomsday in this fast-action, dexterity challenge which lets the users relive the epic battle with unique gameplay inter-cut with footage from the movie.

this might actually make up for the travesty that was Superman Returns...

full trailer...

When LexCorp accidentally unearths the intergalactic serial killer Doomsday, Superman battles the creature head-on in the fight for his life...literally. The world collectively mourns their fallen hero; humanity realizes it will never feel truly safe again. Superman's enemies rejoice - all but Lex Luthor, who grieves the loss in his own demented manner, setting off a chilling chain of events that even he couldn't have foreseen. But a world without Superman proves to be short-lived when the Man of Steel mysteriously returns, or does he?

Looks pretty good, even if it is that old school animation a la the Justice League cartoons.

To be honest myself, I had never even heard of it.

I saw this when I bought my 300 DVD, it looks awesome, I can't wait to see it. The art is a little different, but not enough to make me not want to see it.

Superman Returns was far from a travesty. I quite liked it.

I saw Superman Doomsday at Comic-Con, and it was pretty good. It wasn't superb, and of course didn't live up to the JLU, but it was pretty good.

I did forget to mention though, that the fights are simply the best animated fights I have ever seen. Period.

I hope this makes up for how bad Returns was......a good fight should even stuff up. The only complaint I have is that the animation looks a little dated, like it would be better if it was up to par with the Ultimate Avengers movie.

Superman / Doomsday

===================

What can I say, from the opening sequence I was glued to the screen.

The entire movie had an epic feel to it, something that was sadly lacking in the Superman Returns movie. The hype that had surrounded this movie however was justified. Admittedly it wasn't faithful to the original storyline, there were no appearances by the Justice League, Supergirl, Mongul... nor did the destruction of Coast City occur, something that was vital to the original plot, but needless to say, I was amazed at how they had pulled this off so successfully.

Doomsday, something I was worried about, was done almost to perfection. Given the style of the artwork I was expecting something akin to a feature length episode of Justice League Unlimited or the Animated Superman cartoon; I was actually quite shocked when I found the movie to be shaped more for adults than children. The fight scene between Superman and Doomsday was amazing, to see Superman literally beaten to death was something I had longed to see on the screen, but feared they would never show.

Another of the major plot changes was the "Reign of the Supermen" storyline, in which various Supermen come back to reclaim the name. In this version we are treated to only one Superman returning, a clone made by Lex Luthor in an attempt to control the new Superman. This is reminiscent of the original storyline when Superboy is originally cloned from Superman, and then Lex Luthor attempts to clone his own army of Supergirl's later on. However, the storyline is Superman / Doomsday was fleshed out and actually quite interesting.

with these minor changes to the plot line also came some new bits, the story of Superman and Lois Lane's romantic involvement, and the sub plot between Martha Kent and Lois Lane bonding over the loss of Clark / Superman was quite a touching point in the movie, something that had been left out of the Superman mythos before.

Overall I was gobsmacked with this movie, the acting was amazing and the artwork, something I had been a bit apprehensive about before, was spot on for the storyline. Something else that actually caught my attention was the musical score; something that most people will agree on is a major part of any movie. The soundtrack to Superman / Doomsday was amazing; there is no other word to describe it. The death scene with Lois Lane holding a beaten, dying Superman gave me a lump in my throat at the music slowed and just the sound of the wind and Lois's sobbing could be heard.

Overall I have to give this movie 5 stars, I was shocked, amazed and at times saddened by the movie. If you haven't read the books then do so, but until you do, this is a fitting tribute to them. It may not be a faithful work, but it's certainly earned a place on my Superman shelf.

Gotta luv the hook up. I didn't read any of your review on it I can tell from the previews that its better then Superman Returns. If I had one complaint though it would be that it isn't long enough (thats what she said :P)

yeah... it was quite short and a lot of the major stuff for the main storyline was cut out...

while it wasn't a faithful adaptation of the story, it was a damn good movie, one i will definitely be watching again...

it's amazing MK... Nobody, watch the movie...

the fight scene is amazingly brutal, Superman is quite literally beaten to death... Lois has to watch while Superman pounds of him, she's close enough to get splattered by the blood (yes, it does show blood...) from Superman as Doomsday breaks him...

Cool stuff. I did like the JLA tv show, more JLU cause of the varity of characters. So if this is like that it might be good.
