Warner Bros. Animation will release the second half of its new animated adaptation of the 1992-93 "Death of Superman" comic storyline in January.  Reign of the Supermen will continue the story begun in the August video release Death of Superman (see "Geek TV Round-Up Featuring ‘Death of Superman’").  These two feature-length OVAs comprise a more complete adaptation of the comic story than the single-feature version Superman Doomsday, the first release in the DC animated movie line, which was released in 2007 (see "’Superman Doomsday’s’ Lenticular Cover").

The home video versions, the Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack ($39.99) and the Blu-ray Combo Pack ($24.98) will street on January 29, two weeks after the digital release on January 15, 2019.

The story finds four new super-powered individuals (Steel, Cyborg Superman, Superboy, and the Eradicator) each proclaiming themselves the ultimate hero after the death of Superman.  It’s directed by Sam Liu and written by Jim Krieg and Tim Sheridan.
