Reign of the Supermen coming January 29

DC Universe Movie Reign of the Supermen

The Death of Superman is a popular DC comic book crossover event that featured Superman’s demise at the hands of Doomsday. Warner Bros. Animation previously adapted the comic book arc with Superman: Doomsday, but it had a very short runtime. With the latest DC animated film, The Death of Superman, it allowed the story to breathe with an ending that will lead to the next chapter, Reign of the Supermen. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and DC have announced that it will be coming to home video on January 29, 2019.

In Reign of the Supermen, the world mourns and lives in a world without Superman. Four new heroes arise and are coming for the title of Superman: Superboy, Steel, Cyborg Superman and the Eradicator.

Jerry O’Connell (Sliders) will be back as the voice of Superman, with Rebecca Romijn (X-Men) as Lois Lane and Rainn Wilson (The Office) as Lex Luthor. They are joined by Jason O’Mara (The Man in the High Castle) as Batman, Rosario Dawson (Daredevil) as Wonder Woman, Shemar Moore (Criminal Minds) as Cyborg, Nathan Fillion (Castle, The Rookie) as Green Lantern/Hal Jordan, Christopher Gorham (Ugly Betty) as The Flash, and Nyambi Nyambi (The Good Fight) as Martian Manhunter.

New voice actors include Cress Williams (Black Lightning) as Steel, Cameron Monaghan (Gotham) as Superboy, Patrick Fabian (Better Call Saul) as Hank Henshaw, and Tony Todd (Candyman) as Darkseid. They will be joined by Charles Halford (Constantine) as Bibbo Bibbowski and The Eradicator, Rocky Carroll (NCIS) as Perry White, Toks Olagundoye (Castle) as Cat Grant, Max Mittleman (Justice League Action) as Jimmy Olsen, Paul Eiding (Ben 10: Omniverse) as Jonathan Kent, Jennifer Hale (Green Lantern: The Animated Series) as Martha Kent, Trevor Devall (Suicide Squad: Hell To Pay) as Dabney Donovan and Erica Luttrell (Salvation) as Mercy.

The film is produced and directed by Sam Liu (Gotham by Gaslight, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract) from a script by Jim Krieg (Batman: Gotham by Gaslight) and Tim Sheridan (Scooby-Doo and the Gourmet Ghost). It’s also produced by Amy McKenna (The Death of Superman) and Alan Burnett (Suicide Squad: Hell To Pay).
