    Default Will we get a new Superman cartoon?

    Superman hasn't had a cartoon of his own in 20 years. He's just about to get his own live actions how in CW. How long before we get another one? Superman TAS is what made me a Superman fan.

    We're getting more animated movies, Man of Tomorrow this month and there will be slate of new projects at FanDome.
    Regarding animated tv-series, to be honest, I'm not sure. For some reason they aren't doing them even about Batman currently, who's more popular now. I have no idea why.

    Personally, I don't think warner animations is competent to produce a greats superman animated movie or series. The character is better of being licensed of. I would only have faith if someone like Genndy Tartakovsky or brad bird is incharge.as for tas, timm didn't have a handle on the character. His best superman is for gods and Monsters.

    I don't know if they would want, but it would be cool to see Shankar Animation and the people involved in the Castlevania anime, do something with Superman.

    Right now I don't think there's anywhere to air them. No network carries cartoons anymore and CN has made it clear it has no interest in that sort off thing. If they made one, it would probably be on their streaming service like Harley Quinn is. And even that's more "cartoony" than a traditional superhero show.

    I mean, there is plenty of streaming services. Heck! Hbo max exists now. They would need content. People gobble up content like no tomorrow these days, anyway.

    Not even Batman gets those anymore. I just don’t think enough kids watch them and buy toys for them these days. Maybe if WB decides it could use a Superman cartoon for HBO Max it will happen, but that seems a faint hope at best. Tim Daly and Clancy Brown are both on the DC Fandome List though, and I don’t see Kevin Conroy on the list, so hopefully we might get another animated movie starring those two (assuming they’re not reprising their roles for SS).

    I'd love a new series, but the animation end seems totally focused on movies right now. Which is fine, the animated features are generally good too, but it'd be fun to have a serialized show to follow again.

    Probably not. I think it's the idea that characters like Superman and Batman are too big name to get straight up series anymore. It's similar logic as to why Green Arrow keeps on replacing Batman. The idea of a Superman show is "too overused".
