Finally! The Death and Return of Superman Explained. With Booze. (Mature language)
In 1992, comics publisher DC took a radical step in the battle for comic book sales and mercilessly murdered their flagship hero, the Man of Steel himself, Superman. And then (spoliers!) they brought him back, which many fans consider (along with Spiderman’s Clone Saga) to be nothing but a giant glowing middle-finger. Max Landis (film maker, screenwriter of Chronicle, and son of John) is obviously one such fan who, along with some famous friends (including LOTR’s Elijah Wood and Spaced’s Simon Pegg as his dear old dad), has created a hilarious video to explain exactly what the merry chuff it was all about. Enjoy.
