Last night we got an interesting tidbit of information regarding Warner Bros. future plans for its current animated Superman saga.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment PR guru Gary Miereanu took to twitter confirming The Death of Superman and Reign of the Supermen will get a joint release later in 2019.
Back in 2013 Warner Bros. gave The Dark Knight Returns two-part animated movie the same treatment. Combining the two-part story in to one double-feature-length movie.
In confirming the news Miereanu also confirmed the combined release will feature a number of previously unreleased scenes.
No news yet on a release date but we’ll keep you updated.
