Quotes

Max Landis: So... uh, it sort of ended just on, on a real whimper of just Superman is back. He has long hair now. But what matters here, and really, the thing you should take away from all this, is that the death and return of Superman forever broke death in comics. There's something my dad made up, which is he told me when I was little and I was frustrated about rules, uh, in movies. He said, uh...

great just great
13 October 2014 | by shinobisasuke36See all my reviews

Awesomely funny take on the death and return of superman with Matt Bennett and Liz Gillies, both from the victorious TV show, which made me surprised when I saw them, weird. But it is very good though even if it may offend some DC fans with the negativity of the comic and DC itself. The writing is top notch and there are some really famous cast members in there, I think I saw Simon Pegg. I think it really should have more notice because of the star cast and writing. I think you will like it if you are familiar with the story liner or not because it is a laugh. I found this on YouTube and just thought it was a good video but then the cast surprised me and I found it here with one review so I just decided to be second because I felt like would be a good idea, if you haven't seen it and are reading this then go to YouTube and search it.
