    Damn, I would have loved to see the KGBEAST in full getup!

    And holy shit your right that Flash scene with Flash popping out of nowhere to warn Bats was just like in Crisis, awesome!

    Your also right, the film basically was two comic book stories, shaken up and thrown together. I just wish it was just The Dark Knight Returns which was incredible and not Death Of Superman which deserves more than to be squashed in the last 20 minutes or so of a great film until then. Deserves a proper near 3 hour movie all on its own with the real Doomsday and not just some rushed bad CGI grey bald Hulk Zod clone thing, the original Death of storyline was the scale of epic, like LOTR's scale.

    Great Easter Eggs and Happy Easter!

    This same obnoxious complaint. Doomsdays was always going to be CG. That was never the problem, it's that he's not an interesting villain. I've read the death of Superman, it's not really this LOTR scale story. Sure, it's long and would take more than a movie to do it justice, but the real issues are that Doomsday isn't an interesting villain and the real heart of that story came from the aftermath. What was the world like without Superman.

    Even the death storyline had heart and character that you don't get in TV or movies, though. Why? Because at the time in the Superman officers, there was a philosophy that you want to actually spend some time on supporting characters and the like. That allowed them to cut away from the punchy-punchy for a minute and actually deal with the story's stakes.

    As far as Doomsday goes, he's not that interesting a character. What was interesting in the comics was the aftermath. And that is what we'll be seeing next year. After all the worrying about money and critics is over we need to be talking about Superboy and fancasting Darkseid and the New Gods.
