New Superman film to be shown in double-feature screening

Reign of the Supermen: Superman

DC's latest Superman movie is to be shown in a rare double-feature screening

The newest film from DC's animation studios, Reign of the Supermen, is set to receive a rare double-feature screening alongside it's prequel, The Death of Superman next week.

DC have revealed that the film will have special screenings in cinemas on January 14, ahead of its digital release on January 15 and its DVD release on January 28.

The film is a sequel to The Death of Superman, which was released in July 2018. Predictably, the first film tells the story of Superman's death at the hands of Doomsday, similar to the climax of 2015's Batman v Superman [spoilers].

Its sequel, Reign of the Supermen, picks up months later with the city of Metroplis and the Justice League in mourning over the fallen Man of Steel. That is until a whole new gang of heroes appear, all vying to be the reincarnation of Superman.

DC will be hoping the screenings and subsequent release of their latest animated film can build on the success of Aquaman, which has so far raked in impressive totals at the box office [read more].
