SDCC 2013: DC Animated features announced for 2014

July 21st, 2013 by Christopher Williams Comments

Hot on the heels of the screening for Flashpoint Paradox due out on DVD and Blu-Ray this month, the folks at Warner Bros. announced more titles to follow for next year. The first was called Justice League: War and will be based off of Geoff Johns Justice League New52 work.

The other two are Batman properties, which they do a lot of. The first being Batman: Assault On Arkham and the second being Son of Batman. No details have been released about either one but the assumptions are that Assault on Arkham will be based on the hit video game franchise while Son of Batman would be based on Grant Morrison’s arc which introduced Damian Wayne.

A few interesting things here, first off, I had a feeling that after Flashpoint Paradox Warners would be looking to animate New52 story arcs since in the comics Flashpoint is the event which leads us into the New52 (Can we get a buddy cop feature with Hal Jordan and Sinestro?). Also, getting to see Damian Wayne animated in a feature sounds like a whole bunch of awesomeness wrapped up in ‘that kicks ass’ wrapping paper with a ‘f*@k yes!’ bow around it.

Christopher is self-billed as the World's Coolest Nerd (meaning he wears glasses and is clumsy, but he never earned good marks in school). He loves all things Star Wars and superhero related such as comics, books, cartoons and movies. He's a husband and father who somehow manages to keep up with his pastimes since his day job mainly consists of sitting around a store with not much to do. He's very outspoken and wants to share his opinions with the world, or at least his fellow nerds. You can follow him on Twitter @AUDone44.
