The Death Of Superman On Film

Season 4, Ep. 48

In which Stuart is joined by Alan & Rob, for a showdown in Metropolis...


To celebrate 30 years of the iconic Superman #75, we're joined by the All-Star Superfan Podcasts Alan Burke & Rob O'Connor to take a look at how Hollywood (and BBC Radio) depicted the Death Of Superman in film. Did any of them get it right? Did they do this milestone moment from comics justice on screen? We'll discuss all this and more, in this special episode.


And the Podcast cross-overs don't end there, as our own Stuart joined Damian Edwardson and Dennis Whittle on an episode of Omen To That, taking a look at the Death Of Superman comic itself, which can be heard HERE.


The All-Star SuperFan Podcast also spoke with comic book legend Dan Jurgens about working on the comic, which can be heard HERE.


Among the films discussed (so Spoilers-ish) are Superman: Doomsday, The Death Of Superman, Superman Returns & Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. We also talk about Smallville: Season 8, and Superman & Lois: Season 2 (with minor spoilers).
