You know what else was a great story? "The Death of Superman", and look at how that turned out as an animated movie.

@Destroyer: Good find!

I'd rather this be adapted into the next film. It was amazingly cinematic and a beautiful story.

@thegreek I didn't like it at all, but a lot of people seem to like it. It's all about taste.

Destroyer - What was it that u didn't like ... Since i might be up to getting it I want to know everyone opinion on it ... :)

@thegreek I didn't like the art too much, there wasn't enough Superman action, Clark Kent was kinda hopeless, and some other stuff. But a lot people like it, so give it a try.

Awesome news! I loved All Star Superman! Terrific story telling and original art work!

I love All Star Superman. Can't wait for the animated movie. It would be cool to see it as the next live action movie, but still cool news

Destroyer - Thanks man

@Destroyer - totally, I didn't quite care for All-Star myself.

You probably have to be a long-time Superman fan to like it.

I also hope they don't match Quitley's art... I don't care for it much.

O.K., DC! WTF is it with Superman?!? You do realize you have other characters, right? Like, thousands of them?
