Plot Synopsis: Sequel to the 2018 Death of Superman animated film.

1st Impression:
  DC & Warner Brothers have truly succeeded in creating a cohesive animated film universe that not only maintains continuity but also strives to be as close to the source material as possible something the live-action DC films can learn from. While the death of Superman was previously brought to life in Superman: Doomsday animated film the 2018 interpretation brought the story into the current animated continuity. While I liked the original Death of Superman I like the more unified style of the current animated stories and creating an animated film based on the Reign of the Supermen arc was truly a no-brainer especially since it is the most logical follow-up to the 2018 Death of Superman film.

I am truly looking forward to seeing Steel, Cyborg Superman, Superboy and the Eradicator mixing it up with the Justice League. While departures from the source material will be a given the substitutions and tweaks DC makes to these animated features never detracts from the enjoyment of the films. I can't wait to check out this film when it's released next year.
