The Death and Return of Superman is a short film on YouTube, by Chronicle writer Max Landis.[1][2][3][4] The film, as its title implies, is a monologue about "The Death and Return of Superman" storyline from DC Comics over parody-like sketches.[5][6][7][8] Morgan Krantz played the role of Superman in the film, which also features performances by Elijah Wood, Mandy Moore, Simon Pegg, Chris Hardwick, Barats and Bereta, and Zach Cregger, among others.[9][10][11] Ron Howard makes a cameo appearance as Max's son. Landis had done this style of video before in his web series Cooking With Comics,[12] as well as his "Vague Recollections of Watchmen" and "Drunk Comic Book History: The Robins". The film was produced by Bryan Basham, creator of COPS: Skyrim.
