Superman: Doomsday is the name of a 2007 direct-to-DVD animated movie featuring Superman. It is loosely based on the The Death of Superman story arc in the comic books, in which Doomsday kills Superman.
Lex Luthor's mining project accidentally unearths an alien spacecraft buried deep beneath the Earth, which contains Doomsday. The monster breaks free and begins rampaging.
Superman battles Doomsday, and the two kill each other. However, Luthor is able to clone the Man of Steel from his dead body, creating a new Superman that he can control.
Meanwhile, the real Superman's body is recovered by the Fortress of Solitude robot, and regenerated.
- Bruce Timm has said at the interview with machinema that he wanted superman snap doomsday's neck at the end of the movie but DC didn't let him https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNTDP_ICL00&ab_channel=ETCNews
- Kevin Smith appeared had a cameo in the movie, where he comments about the Superman clone busting up a mechanical spider, calling it lame.

- Strangely, no superheroes were seen at all at Superman's funeral in the film, where as in the comic, many heroes were among the mourners, including the Justice League.
