Reign of the Supermen Film Review - DC Universe Animated Original Movies Thoughts | Fanboys Anonymous
Reign of the Supermen is the latest in the line of animated DC direct-to-video films. Is it worth the watch or it is something that should be skipped?

STARRING:
Jerry O'Connell (Clark Kent / Superman / Cyborg Superman), Cameron Monaghan (Superboy), Rosario Dawson (Wonder Woman), Nathan Fillion (Hal Jordan / Green Lantern), Rebecca Romijn (Lois Lane), Rainn Wilson (Lex Luthor), Jason O'Mara (Bruce Wayne / Batman), Patrick Fabian (Hank Henshaw), Cress Williams (John Henry Irons / Steel), Jennifer Hale (Martha Kent), Shemar Moore (Cyborg), Brenda Strong (Lillian Luthor), Charles Halford (The Eradicator / Bibbo Bibbowski), and Tony Todd (Darkseid)

WARNING - SPOILERS BELOW

Here are some specific thoughts that ran through my mind during the course of the film as a stream of consciousness:

  • Off to a good start with this intro.
  • Obligatory reference to how I like this animation style.
  • Wait, Sullivan? Is that Chloe?
  • "I know what to ask these guys." Cut to: "Are you the real Superman, like, for real?"
  • Nice ice cream reference.
  • Lois at the cocktail party is a knockout.
  • I still don't like Rainn Wilson as Lex Luthor.
  • "I have the shot" hahahaha
  • I don't remember Darkseid being any part of the Death of Superman story
  • Dafuq Eric. Leaving Becky out to dry like that.
  • WORLDS COLLIDING! A SEINFELD REFERENCE! LMAO

The movie's a good watch, but it's not as good as I was hoping it would be, nor as good as its predecessor. I'd recommend it for anyone interested in this series, yet not as enthusiastically as I would some of the others. The action set piece at the end felt like it just went on and on, and I would have rather had some more character moments instead. The Darkseid stuff felt shoehorned and bland.

See It or Skip It = See It!
