Episode 234: The Death and Return of Superman Commentary

Welcome to the two hundredth and thirty-fourth episode of From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman Podcast!  This podcast has a simple premise; examine just about every Superman comic published between Man of Steel #1 in 1986 to Adventures of Superman #649 in 2006 in an informative and hopefully entertaining format.

This time out Mike and Jeff present a commentary for the 2019 animated film The Death and Return of Superman.  Clocking in at over two and a half hours, this film is actually two movies in one.  In late 2018, Warner Brothers Animation and DC Entertainment released The Death of Superman and in the spring of 2019, they released Reign of the Supermen.  Then, later in 2019, they released both films together (because cash grab and the boys are here for it) and after a number of attempts to get a commentary recorded the boys finally sat down and got it done.

The commentary begins right at the beginning of the episode, so if you are going to watch the movie along with the commentary, they both start at the same time.  In addition to talking about the film, Mike and Jeff discuss Easter eggs, comparisons between this movie and the previous direct-to-home-entertainment animated Superman: Doomsday, the characters, and the cast.  The commentary can be watched with the film or by itself.  It’s up to you how you want to listen to the episode.

Below are images of the characters as well as posters of the various films.
