      Nicely comprehensive review Cas. Doomsday was a bit of a stretch on the viewer, weren't it - what happened to James Marsters?!
      I've ordered this and am keen to see how it plays with the comics and movie material floating about.
      Makes me wonder how high and low they looked to cast Superman and Lois.
      Thank goodness for solar powered candles.

      Well, I've watched it and it is very good. The story is simple enough with the Clark and Lois angle centering things and, oh yeah, the big mystery bad curdled in with Lex and his aspirations.
      The fights are entertaining and considering the big battle goes on and on and on, it actually manages to not get too stale. But it does make you wonder just how badly hurt the others were, as they sat out the whole thing whilst poor old, 'He'll always be there for us Supe's' was getting reamed.
      The picture quality is fine and the sound manages the odd rumble with clear dialogue which didn't have me straining.
      As ever, the end credits have the all important flash of what's about to be up and I freeze framed the last to be sure. Worth doing.

      Slight issue with this review as it states in a change to the comic, here Doomsday gets to fight other heroes as well as Superman. Which isn't true, as in the comic Doomsday takes on multiple members of the Justice League immediately before, and during, his fight with Superman. Green Lantern (Guy Gardner) got stomped into a bloody mess, Blue Beetle was beaten into a coma and permanently scarred etc. and this was all while Doomsday still had one arm tied behind his back!

      There were a number of other heroes who tried to help but couldn't even slow Doomsday down, but I remember those two in particular, as I was pretty young at the time and a bit upset about Blue Beetle seeing getting beaten senseless and begging for help!

      What review did you read:

      “giving much more time to the entire Justice League, before - in a slight detour from the comic (which, more plausibly, didn't utilise the full league)”

      Well looks like I need my eyes tested then, don't remember seeing that bit in brackets when I first read the review.

      It’s part of the new 52 DCU inspired movies which started with Justice League: War a few years ago and they have kept the same actors for the parts of Superman, Wonder Woman etc since then so they didn’t have to do much searching.

      Yeah, I was being sarcastic as they're married.
