Warner Premiere's DC Showcase Original Shorts Collection hits DVD and Blu-ray

Warner Premiere has been spitting out some awesome toons over the past few years, offering brand new tales from the DC Comics’ DC Universe in animated form. Batman, Superman, Justice League, Wonder Woman… many of the company’s “big guns” have had the spotlight head their way. As a nice little bonus, many of these discs included brief little vignettes on some of the lesser known DC All-Stars. Now, Warner Premiere, DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. Animation, and Warner Home Video will release a DVD and Blu-ray package that collections them all, dubbed the DC Showcase Original Shorts Collection. In addition to extended versions of the already released shorts like The Spectre, Jonah Hex, and Green Arrow, the package, due out November 9th, will include the brand new Superman/Shazam! The Return of Black Adam. Sign me up!

“The DC Showcase once again combines the respective creative talents of DC Comics, Warner Premiere, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Home Video to provide fans with vivid, new experiences alongside characters from within the vast resources of DC Comics” – Matt Bierman, Senior Vice President Production, Warner Premiere.

“Whereas DC Universe films have given fans the broad strokes of superhero entertainment, we know devout comics fans will enjoy seeing the characters in the DC Showcase come to animated life – some for the very first time – and we believe this presentation will open a window for new viewers to experience these unique, textured heroes and villains” – Amit Desai, WHV Vice President of Family, Animation & Sports Marketing.
