3. The release of new DC animated movies.
DC is lagging behind Marvel in live-action movies, but the company’s string of animated direct-to-DVD films have been just as good, if not better than the feature films from the House of Ideas. In fact, if we may be so bold, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1 was the best superhero film of the year, both live-action and animated. That’s why we loved hearing that more of these gems are on the way.
At Comic Con, it was announced that both Superman Unbound and Justice League: Flashpoint would be adapted in animated form. Unbound is an adaptation of Geoff Johns’ recent “Superman: Brainiac” storyline that ran in Action Comics a few years ago, while Flashpoint will be based on Johns’ recent crossover event of the same name.
No other details have been released for either film, but if you are familiar with the other animated movies then these should definitely pique your interest. If you haven’t checked them out yet, we sincerely hope that you do.
