A decade of ground-breaking DC Super Hero animation spanning 30 full-length feature films and 5 animated shorts, combined with new bonus features, the complete catalog of prior enhanced content, commemorative extras and exclusive collectible items makes the DC Universe Original Movies: 10th Anniversary Collection a must-own as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and DC Entertainment released the limited edition, numbered Blu-ray box set today, November 7, 2017.

The content of the DC Universe Original Movies: 10th Anniversary Collection – beyond the 30 animated films – was discussed during a commemorative panel at New York Comic Con on Thursday, October 5, 2017 in the Javits Center. Panelists included executive producer Bruce Timm, supervising producer James Tucker, co-producers/writers Alan Burnett and Jim Krieg, and a cavalcade of actors who have played essential roles in multiple films in the series – the two prominent voices of Batman in the DCUs, Kevin Conroy and Jason O’Mara; John DiMaggio, who has voiced characters in eight films, including the Joker in Batman: Under the Red Hood; Tara Strong, the voice of characters in seven movies, most notably Batgirl in Batman: The Killing Joke, and the two-time voice of Wonder Woman, Vanessa Marshall.

The DC Universe Original Movies: 10th Anniversary Collection Blu-ray box set is limited to 20,000, and each box will be individually numbered. This collection is priced to own at $299.99. It is now available for pre-order.

Launched in 2007 with the landmark release of Superman Doomsday, the DC Universe Original Movies are based on or inspired by storylines and/or characters from within the ever-expanding DC library. Produced by DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation, the stories range from films based upon iconic DC Super Hero stories (Superman Doomsday, Justice League: The New Frontier, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Batman: The Killing Joke) to films inspired by themes from within DC history (Batman vs. Robin was inspired by “The Court of Owls,” Superman vs. The Elite was inspired by “What’s so Funny About Truth, Justice and the American Way?”) to original stories (Justice League: Gods and Monsters, Batman and Harley Quinn).

The DC Universe Original Movies: 10th Anniversary Collection will include all 30 films – from Superman Doomsday to the all-new Batman and Harley Quinn, as well as newly released commemorative editions of Wonder Woman and Justice League: The New Frontier. The 32-disc box set will also include all 5 “DC Showcase” animated shorts – The Spectre, Green Arrow, Jonah Hex, Catwoman and Superman/Shazam: The Return of Black Adam.

A brand-spanking new teaser has just been released online for the Flash-animated super hero team up film, DC Super Heroes vs. Eagle Talon: The Movie. While the odd franchise pairing and the unorthodox art style employed make it look like a fan project, this is a legitimate use of hte DC Super Heroes license, and is distributed by DC Comics mother company WArner Brothers. The animation is done by DLE, Shirogumi Inc., and Gonzo.

You can check out the teaser below and be as surprised as we were as to the film’s existence:

As for what it’s all about, DLE Inc. Provides the following synopsis:

Joker has come to Japan to steal the Eagle Talon Society’s secret weapons in his continued scheme for pure chaos. However, the Justice League is on his trail, but there’s something off with Batman. Now, it’s up to Eagle Talon to go find out what’s wrong with Batman, and that means going back in time to Bruce Wayne’s most traumatic experience, the murder of his parents. If that wasn’t enough to worry about, the Eagle Talon Society also have to keep their eyes on their production budget, especially with most of that money going toward the licensing fee for DC’s popular characters. Will the Eagle Talon Society and the Justice League be able to stop the Joker before their budget dries up, and they’re reduced to simple stick figures!?

DC Super Heroes vs. Eagle Talon: The Movie is written, directed, and starred in by FROGMAN, and will be screening in Japanese theaters on October 21, 2017.

The Gal Gadot-driven Wonder Woman film was a surprise hit for Warner Bros., raking in more than $389 million in the US alone, despite fears among critics that the film will suffer from the poor critical acclaim of Batman v Superman, and the many controversies surrounding the film prior to its release (including the ridiculous debacle over Gal Gadot’s underarms.)

So it stands as no surprise that a sequel is already under way, but what is a surprise is that Warner Bros. has already penciled it in for a specific date. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gal Gadot will be reprising her role as Diana Prince in the Wonder Woman sequel on December 13th, 2019. Director Patty Jenkins is still in talks to return, but given the success of the first film, it also wouldn’t come as a surprise if she returns to direct the sequel as well.

Warner Bros. Animation is currently in the process of teasing fans of Justice League Action, which is done by releasing a bunch of new stills and a video clip for the latest episode, titled “Zombie King.” The episode is written by Paul Dini and will air this coming Saturday, February 4, at 7:30 AM on Cartoon Network.

The curiously titled “Zombie King” episode focuses on the zombie supervillain Solomon Grundy, who managed to escape his Louisiana prison intent on raising an army of the dead from the graves, using a magical crystal that just so happened to give him the ability to do so. The only ones who stand in his way are Batman and the Swamp Thing.

Fans of BTAS should do well to watch this episode, as Swamp Thing is voiced by Mark Hamill, who voiced the Joker in BTAS, and of course, is well known for being Mr Luke Skywalker on the Star Wars franchise (not to mention C*ckKnocker in Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back, noich!.)

If the video isn’t enough of a teaser for you, you can go ahead and take a gander at the high quality image stills. It’s full of pictures of Grundy, Batman, and Swamp Thing. I think I also saw Zatanna and Constantine in there somewhere – we all love Constantine, right? Even though we all did nothing when the live action series got cancelled (as opposed to, I dunno – hurling a few hexes or sending a few techdemons to the network responsible for the cancellation.)

The world’s greatest DC Super Heroes will be joining forces and will be heading to Cartoon Network for the premiere of Justice League Action. This all-new animated series will kick off with a four-part special event dubbed “Shazam Slam” on Friday, December 16 at 6PM (ET/PT), followed by regular airing of new episodes every Saturday morning on December 24 onwards.

In “Shazam Slam,” Batman fights for his life against the powerful villain Black Adam on the Rock of Eternity, with the ensuing fight resulting in Black Adam unleashing a horde of Djinn determined to revert the Earth back to its pre-human, volcanic state. Possessed by the Djinn, Batman is turned into a giant flying Batmonster that proceeds to lay waste to the Hall of Justice. With Superman being the only one who can hold back the possessed Batman, the rest of the Justice League must seek help from Shazam and The Wizard in order to hunt down and defeat each of the Djinns that are running rampant.

According to a joint announcement from comic book publishers DC and Boom! Studios, 2017 will see super-powered do-gooder groups the Justice League and the Power Rangers team up for a crossover comic book miniseries. The timing of the crossover is not surprising, as 2017 will see movies based on each franchise grace the big screens.

The comic will be titled Justice League/Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, and will consist of six issues featuring JL members Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, and Cyborg sharing space with the Power Rangers sextet, in order to team up (or fight each other first before teaming up, as is often the case with crossovers.) The mini-series will be written by comic book scribe Tom Taylor, whose past credits include Green Lantern Corps: Edge of Oblivion. Art duties will be handled by Justice League of America Rebirth: The Ray’s Stephen Byrne.

The press release includes a synopsis for the crossover:

Something terrible has happened in Angel Grove when the Power Rangers’ Command Center is breached and the teleporters are damaged! Zack the Black Ranger is flung into an alternate universe full of citizens possessing outrageous powers and wearing strange costumes. Will Jason the Red Ranger, Trini the Yellow Ranger, Kimberly the Pink Ranger, Billy the Blue Ranger and Tommy the Green Ranger be able to get to Zack in time to save him from Batman?

Featuring a completely new artistic style and aesthetic, DC Comics’ icons such as Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Bumblebee, Poison Ivy, Katana and many more, make their unprecedented teenaged introduction.

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has recently posted the first official clip from the upcoming DC Universe Original Movie Justice League: Gods & Monsters on their Youtube channel.

Justice League: Gods & Monsters follows a divergent reality in which the Justice League continue to “protect” the planet with impunity. The group formed by core members Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman employ fear and intimidation instead of hope, and keep the population safe under their iron fist.

Justice League: Gods & Monsters boasts of an all star cast that includes voice cast which includes Michael C. Hall (“Dexter”) as Batman, Benjamin Bratt (“Law & Order,” “24”) as Superman, Tamara Taylor (“Bones”) as Wonder Woman, Paget Brewster (“Criminal Minds”) as Lois Lane, Jason Isaacs (“Harry Potter” films) as Lex Luthor and C.

CBS has recently posted a hefty full-length trailer for their upcoming small screen adaptation of DC Comics’ Supergirl, which has Melissa Benoist playing the role of Kara Zor El. Clocking in at six and a half minutes, the trailer reveals a lot of important points in the series (how it fits in with the existing Superman universe, what she looks like, her gender preference, etc.,) while also giving viewers a general idea of the feel and tone. You can check out the trailer below:

The official synopsis:

SUPERGIRL is an action-adventure drama based on the DC Comics character Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), Superman’s (Kal-El) cousin who, after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be. Twelve-year-old Kara escaped the doomed planet Krypton with her parents’ help at the same time as the infant Kal-El. Protected and raised on Earth by her foster family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex (Chyler Leigh), and learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin in order to keep her identity a secret. Years later at 24, Kara lives in National City assisting media mogul and fierce taskmaster Cat Grant (Golden Globe Award winner Calista Flockhart), who just hired the Daily Planet’s former photographer, James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks), as her new art director. However, Kara’s days of keeping her talents a secret are over when Hank Henshaw (David Harewood), head of a super-secret agency where her sister also works, enlists her to help them protect the citizens of National City from sinister threats. Though Kara will need to find a way to manage her newfound empowerment with her very human relationships, her heart soars as she takes to the skies as Supergirl to fight crime. Greg Berlanti (“The Flash,” “Arrow”), Ali Adler, Sarah Schecter and Andrew Kreisberg are executive producers for Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The pilot was directed by Glen Winter (“Arrow”).

Consumer Products and Mattel are joining forces to launch DC Super Hero Girls, an exciting new universe of Super Heroic storytelling that helps build character and confidence, and empowers girls to discover their true potential. Featuring DC Comics’ most powerful and diverse line-up of female characters as relatable teens, DC Super Hero Girls will play out across multiple entertainment content platforms and product categories to create an immerse world.

(There is no word if the Vixen series is apart of the initiative)

Families with children dressed in their favorite DC superhero shirts came out to The Paley Center for Media in New York City on Saturday, January 24 to see a free screening of LEGO® DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League vs. Bizarro League, followed by a Q&A panel with some of the cast and crew, and a meet and greet for pictures and autographs.

ToonBarn’s Marc Morrell was hot on the scene with his family, taking pictures, getting interviews with the cast and crew, reviewing the screening (which was really great), and now we have videos to share with you:

In LEGO® DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League vs. Bizarro League, Batman has joined the newly formed Justice League in order to keep tabs on Superman, a mistrust that is complicated by Superman’s clumsy – but well-meaning – clone, Bizarro. Bizarro’s creation of the Bizarro League has caused confusion amongst the world’s greatest Super Heroes, but an even greater and mysterious threat may force the Justice League and Bizarro League to band together to defeat evil.

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, DC Entertainment and The LEGO Group, LEGO® DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League vs. Bizarro League will be distributed by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on February 10, 2015.

The Flash has been the biggest live action success in recent times for the CW. Arrow isnt far behind, but some wonder how things will be handled with Vixen. This is the first animated series for the CW Brand since the end of the Vortexx run in August and the first Warner Brother Animated (action) production since the end of Kids WB back in 2008. However it will not air on the network, but on the CW (SEED), a online portal for the brand.
