Some Important Dates

1978  Superman: Last Son Of Krypton, a novel by Elliot S Maggin
          the first Christopher Reeve film

          a new Superman by John Byrne
         The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller
2001- Smallville TV series

2016  Batman v. Superman: The Dawn Of Justice

This is my list of high points. I have skipped over:

many comics;
Maggin's second novel;
five other feature films;
three other live action TV series;
etc.

The 2016 film is a:

sequel;
crossover;
Justice League prequel;
Death of Superman story -

- and the second installment of the second Superman feature film series. In it, the first cinematic Wonder Woman meets the second cinematic Superman and the third cinematic Batman.
