Element Pictures Distribution have announced the forthcoming Irish DVD release of Death of a Superhero.

Fifteen-year-old Donald Clarke, after several cycles of chemotherapy, feels he has little left to hope for. Worst of all, he might die a virgin! But his friends and family are determined he’ll enjoy the best things about being a teenager: great parties, self-discovery and, most of all, a cherry-popping first love. Donald, however, prefers to escape his demons in his superhero world of comic book art.

With its innovative mix of live action and animation, Death of a Superhero is a funny, edgy and energetic look at living life to the full in the most painful of circumstances.

Stars: Andy Serkis (Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit), Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Game of Thrones 3, Love Actually) and Aisling Loftus (Oranges and Sunshine).

DEATH OF A SUPERHERO is available to rent or buy on DVD nationwide from 19th April and on-demand from
