Warner Bros. and DC have joined forces with Fathom Events to treat us to a double feature presentation showcasing Superman’s death and rebirth. Mark your calendars for January 13 and 14, 2019, for The Death of Superman and the first in-theater screening of the all-new Reign of the Supermen.
The upcoming theatrical presentation will allow fans to enjoy Reign of the Supermen before the film’s Digital release (by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment) on January 15, 2019 and Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack and Blu-ray Combo Pack on January 29, 2019.
Here’s the official synopsis:
The Man of Steel meets his ultimate match when the monstrous, unstoppable creature Doomsday comes to Earth – hell bent on destroying everything and everyone in his path, including the Justice League – in the action-packed The Death of Superman. In the second half of this two-part landmark tale, Reign of the Supermen finds Earth’s citizens – and the Man of Steel’s heroic contemporaries – dealing with a world without Superman. But the aftermath of Superman’s death, and the subsequent disappearance of his body, leads to a new mystery – is Superman still alive? The question is further complicated when four new super-powered individuals – Steel, Cyborg Superman, Superboy and the Eradicator – emerge to claim themselves as the ultimate hero. In the end, will any of them prove to be the real Man of Steel?
Tickets for The Death of Superman/Reign of the Supermen Double Feature can be purchased at the Fathom Events website as well as from participating theater box offices.
Fathom Events, Warner Bros., and DC will present The Death of Superman/Reign of the Supermen Double Feature in more than 500 select movie theaters on Sunday, January 13 at 12:55 p.m. and Monday, January 14 at 8:00 p.m. (all local times), through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network (DBN).
