Max Landis’ The Death And Return Of Superman


Even the most devout comic book fans are aware that there are tons of comic storylines that just don’t make sense.  We spend our hard-earned money and our spare time reading these comics and then after all is said and done, we’re left scratching our heads and saying “WTF?”


Over the weekend, you might’ve had the chance to check out the new film Chronicle, which was written by Max Landis.  Now, Landis isn’t known for too much else in the film industry (yet), but what he might be known for (in addition to Chronicle) is his work on the parody/re-telling of The Death And Return Of Superman.  I won’t give too much away about the video but it’s both hilarious and awesome.


Oh, and if that isn’t enough to snag your attention, this almost 17-minute long video guest stars Mandy Moore, Elijah Wood, Simon Pegg and Ron Howard.  I’m done talking now. Just watch it. Now.



“I’m not drunk in the video, I only get about three cups in. The original rant was 45 minutes long, so of course we had to cut a bunch of stuff out for time, and because it was just too stupid. Like for instance the part where Pa Kent dies of a heart attack and literally GOES TO HEAVEN. AND SEES SUPERMAN.”

Stephanie is [obviously] a comic book fan, but she also considers herself an avid gamer, movie watcher, lover of music, board games fan (although she doesn’t find nearly enough time for them…) and being snarky. Oh, and Twitter. Twitter’s a hobby, right?…

What's your reaction?
