So far the promotional material for DC’s upcoming animated ‘Reign of the Supermen’ hasn’t shown off too much of Superboy but the latest clip is changing all that. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment knows you want to see more of the Boy of Steel and are happy to deliver a great shot of the character.
After ‘The Death of Superman‘ which dropped in August of 2018, the story is set to continue with the introduction of four new characters who are all looking to claim the mantle of the Man of Steel. The young Bruce Wayne of ‘Gotham’ himself, Cameron Monaghan, will be voicing the character in the upcoming outing.

We know that “Reign of the Supermen is the second half of a two-part DC Universe Movies experience that began in August 2018 with The Death of Superman – the two films telling a more faithful animated version of “The Death of Superman,” DC’s landmark 1992-93 comic phenomenon. Superman Doomsday, the inaugural film in the DC Universe Movies series, told an abridged version of that comics story, but with a runtime of 75 minutes, the film was only able to focus on a core, singular storyline. The Death of Superman and Reign of the Supermen restore many of the moments and characters that fans hold dear to their hearts.”
Steel, Cyborg Superman, Superboy, and the Eradicator all claim to be Superman but are any of them the real deal? Fans of the iconic story or a quick search online will answer that question, but this still looks like it will be fun to watch.
