Remember when the Man of Steel died and came back in the 1990s? Well, this is the closest we're going to get to a live-action Death of Superman movie. And it's kind of amazing.

Max Landis (the son of famed Animal House director John Landis and screenwriter of Chronicle) has released The Death and Return of Superman, an entertaining, whisky-fueled 17-minute short detailing that bizarre 1990s storyline. And all of your favorite heroes are here, like Bloodwynd, Eradicator, and the Guardian!

Also featured are Mandy Moore as Lois Lane, Elijah Wood as Hank Henshaw, Simon Pegg as John Landis, and some other surprises. Hat tip to Ryernl.
