The Death and Return of Superman, A Parody of Superman’s History

Max Landis (son of John Landis) poured himself a drink and then began ranting about the storyline of Superman in The Death and Return of Superman. As he rants, actors reenact the history of Superman in live-action sequences. Look for appearances by Simon Pegg, Ron Howard, Chris Hardwick, Elijah Wood and Mandy Moore in this film produced by Bryan Basham. It’s sort of a drunk history of Superman, even though Landis says he is not drunk in the video.

A somewhat-mostly-accurate educational parody film by Max Landis…

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.

If I saw this video, I might nerd rage out so hard. But luckily I made it, so I’m pretty happy. Really I’d hope people just are with me, and happy that Guy Gardner and Bloodwynd get to be in a movie.
