The DC Animated Universe finally releases a non Batman/Super Man related animated production. LEGO DC Super Heroes: The Flash hits store shelves this week, March 13 for $24 on Blu-ray, which seems pricey for a blu-ray release. This is a rare move outside the DCAU will house so even if you don’t like The Flash show DC they’ll finally do branch out into other characters beyond Batman/Superman.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you already know one of the most famous and gruesome Batman stories ever is finally being translated to the screen! Batman: The Killing Joke has been on many people’s wish lists for the last 10 years and DC Animation is answering the call. They normally hit it out of the park and I expect another amazing outing with one of their more esoteric outings yet. Why can’t the film verse just put Bruce Timm in charge? Sheesh. The Blu-ray/DVD is coming out August 2nd.
Even Batman can get roofied. It was only a matter of time before DC Animation got around to bringing Damian Wayne, the spoiled love child between Bruce Wayne and Talia Al Ghul and one of the most polarizing Batman sidekicks in history to the Animated universe.
Even though New York is getting hammered with Snow, unlike DC, the City is still open. The World Premiere of Justice League: War tonight at The Paley Center for Media in New York is still happening! This is why The Justice League needs someone that can control the weather in their group. Covert Affairs star Christopher Gorham will be the featured voice cast member at tonight’s World Premiere of “Justice League: War” at The Paley Center for Media in New York. Voicing the Flash was Gorham’s maiden voyage into animation voiceovers, and the affable actor took right to the role. I’ve been a big fan of Gorham’s since he made me cry in the short lived TV Series Popular. I still say whoever runs DC Animation should take over Warner’s Super Hero film franchises. DC Animation can do no wrong in my book.
Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns is one of those seminal works that along with Alan Moore’s Watchmen forever changed the face of comics. These two works from the early – mid 80s transformed comics from camp that it became in the 70s to what it is today. Warner Home Video’s DC Animation group has lovingly brought this epic to life in a fashion that every comic book fan should love. Last year’s part one was one of my favorite films of 2012 and I was scared part 2 would be screwed up.
Here it is folks, the first official clip from Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Pt2. The clip features Batman facing off against a large contingent of Gotham City police and their leader, new Commissioner Ellen Yindel. This is one of my most anticipated movies of 2013 and it hits blu-ray January 28th. If you happen to be in NY, they are going to have a big event at the Paley Center on the 23rd.
