    That's how it starts. The fever. The rage. The feeling of powerlessness. That turns good men....Cruel - Alfred.

    This may be the only thing that I do that matters - Bruce.

    Stay down, if I wanted it, you would be dead already - Clark.

    DC animated Movies: Drop in Quality?

    Inspiration: Gregg Katzman's Comic Vine Article.

    The recent animated movies have been a bit of a disappointment for me - they are good, for the most part. But, they aren't the best, like they used to be.

    We have two more movies coming out this year - Batman vs Robin (following Court of Owls storyline) and Justice League: Gods and Monsters (3 part mini series). Hopefully they will be better (in terms of characterization and story).

    Anyways, I am not sure why the recent movies have been bad:

    My first reason was income; I thought that WB/DC isn't making much profit out of these movies, so there is less incentive to put more resources into making better movies. But, after checking the wiki, I am not sure that is the case.



    Of course, these are the gross numbers, not profit. It is possible that the current animation style and work costs much more than the previous style (used in the animated movies of the past).

    Second is the script.

    Of the recent movies, the only ones that stood out to me was Assault at Arkham. The others were good-average. Throne of Atlantis had so much potential; it could have been better had they focused more on Aquaman and his supporting cast, rather than on the League (then again, it was a League movie. Perhaps it might have been better if the length was extended a bit more - to 90 mins? Take 20 mins to focus on the league, 70 on developing Aquaman and his supporting cast).

    Anyways, John DeMattei (JL3000, JLI, Kraven's Last Hunt) is the one writing the screenplay for Batman vs Robin; perhaps it might end up having a better script. Alan Burnett (BTAS, Batman Beyond, The Batman) is the one writing Gods and Monsters...it is said to be a darker version of Justice League.

    Not sure how that will go (JL is already pretty dark in the current continuity).

    What do you think? How can WB/DC make more money through their animated projects? (so, they will have a better incentive to make better movies). Which stories would you like see adapted in the coming years?

    I would love to see:

    WW solo
    Lantern franchise - 1 movie to establish Lantern universe and Lanterns, 2 for Sinestro Corps War.
    Shazam solo - Exploring his origin; basically an adaptation of Johns' Shazam.
    JLD - Would love to see the magicians and others (Swamp Thing, Frankenstein) on the animated screen.

    WB/DC are seemingly going to adapt Trinity War (The end credit scene in ToA). So, a JLD film is to be expected, right?

    Flash is already getting lots of love in another medium, so I don't want to see an animated feature for him anytime soon (besides, WB animation has limited themselves to 3 movies an year; so let's take give another characters a moment to shine).

    New Animation Projects Aimed at Younger Demographic

    DC Entertainment has just announced 3 different animation projects - 2 Batman Unlimited movies, 2X22 min shorts based on the films and 3X15 min shorts on Super friends.

    Batman Unlimited movies (2)

    - Featuring Batman, the Flash, Red Robin, Night wing and Green Arrow
    - First part, called Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts will be available in stores on May 12.
    - Second one will be released later this year.

    Batman Unlimited Shorts (22 mins - 2)

    - Based on Batman Unlimited action figures
    - Will be available for free through digital platforms

    But WB and DC, as well as its toy partners, also see new programming as a way to launch a new wave of action figures with accessories, a new Batmobile, and the all-new CybeRex robot dinosaur, all featured in the “Batman Unlimited” content.
    Super friends (15 mins - 3)

    - based on the Fisher-Price Imaginext action figures and play sets
    - Will be available for free through an app (aimed at younger audience).

    DC Super Friends content will also receive new toys based on its animated fare, including a Joker Laff Factory, new Batcave, and books.

    Don't forget DC Universe Online. I'm hooked on that game like a crack addict. They still make tons of money off this game.

    Controversial opinion ahead:

    I can't speak for the Batman stuff, but a lot of it has to do with the creators being forced to base their content on Geoff Johns' whack storylines. Justice League: Origin did not deserve its own animated feature. The comic was embarrassing enough, and did not deserve to be touted as something to entice a more general audience. The same goes for Flashpoint. Back in the heyday of the DCAU, Bruce Timm and co. were allowed the creative freedom to more or less do and adapt what they wanted to, and tell their own stories. This, no doubt, gave them more passion for their projects, and since their writers and producers are better storytellers than most comic writers, it allowed for better stories and a better product than what we're seeing today.

    It would behoove DC to allow Timm to do what he wants and not force him to adapt Johns' stories and Justice League. I think they are allowing Timm more freedom with Gods and Monsters. Hopefully things turn around with the return of Timm and his new projects. I mean, really, who the hell is Geoff Johns compared to the guy behind Batman: The Animated Series and Justice League and Justice League Unlimited!?

    Origins was below average..but I believe Johns stepped up his game in the later arcs (starting with Throne of Atlantis).

    I have been thinking about that too. Lot of people revere Timm's animated works as awesome and in whole another level (I don't argue with that, but they also had their fair share of problems - like BatGod). Creative freedom - I am not sure about this one. ToA animated feature was a lot different from the actual story line.

    Well, Gods and Monsters is reported to be a darker version of the League. Wonder how that will go.

    I don't think they're being forced to adapt Johns' work, so much as there was a general shift in the direction of the Animated Features line to be more continuity-driven and the decision was made to base that universe off the currently running New 52 universe and through Justice League and Batman movies (since those sell well).

    And by that logic, Origins was chosen to adapt since it covered the origins of the Justice League in Earth-0, much like Thrones of Atlantis was chosen because it was a big Justice League storyline and could be used to introduce Aquaman into the new continuity. It wasn't because they were forced to use Geoff Johns' storylines, and Thrones of Atlantis was a very loose adaption even if it was also very faithful for the most part.

    The Batman movies are so far taking inspiration from Grant Morrisson and Scott Snyder storylines, who are currently big names on those characters, so I don't see an issue with doing the same for Johns' work on Justice League.

    Timm was never allowed to do what he wants, don't be delusional.
    All their animated movies were adapted from famed story lines.

    Biggest reveal I got from that is that Damian Wayne is joining the show. It's awesome that they're still continuing to produce shorts, even with the new show on the horizon
    Done with DC. Can't handle the constant whiplash! Time to go on a hiatus!

    They said the show isn't going to be replacing the Fontana series, just "expanding" the brand, more or less.

    Damian showing up is weird because I don't think Batman would be old enough in this setting to have a kid, let alone a sidekick. I don't think he's even supposed to be Batman yet.
