So while looking on YouTube I found the video below. In it Max Landis of (Chronicle and the Death and Return of Superman short film fame) states that in Early 2013 DC Comics approached him about doing a weekly year long series about the Death and Return of Superman in the New 52 along with Greg Pak. Due to scheduling conflicts and other internal decisions at DC the series never came to fruition. In the video he gives his pitch for the story he wouldve told.
Having watched his pitch in my opinion its pretty great. It obviously wouldnt completely fly with the current continuity but with a little editing and smoothing out some story elements this series wouldve done WONDERS for DC. It would've filled in a lot of the gaps in the current continuity and just seems like a great story in general.
