When a hulking monster arrives on Earth and begins a mindless rampage, the Justice League is quickly called in to stop it. But it soon becomes apparent that only Superman can stand against the monstrosity.
In DC's mad rush to get the lion's share of their animated films under one umbrella, ore more accurately, into a single timeline, there was always going to be at least a slight re-duplication of efforts. But seeing as this is almost **exactly** the same as the already released _Superman: Doomsday_ movie, I wonder, did _The Death of Superman_ really need to happen? Or if it did, could it have maybe been one part of a bigger story? Or maybe at least have like... happened later? I suppose, that seeing as this movie is a much better version of it, I can't complain too much... Even if we did just have to also sit through another bastardised version of it in _Batman v Superman_.
This is, I think, with the exception of _Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay_, probably the best movie in the new "DC Animated Movie Universe". But the movies outside of this rushed, ham-fisted continuity are usually far better, so the compliment's not too high a praise.
_Final rating:★★½ - Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._
