I may not be exited for Superman vs the elite, I truly hope that after Batman parts one and two are finished, I really love to see Bruce Timm do a real Superman story similar to Gotham Night and Emerald Nights with Tim Daly as Superman solo and not paired with Kevin Conroy as Batman. Superman tells about the history of Krypton to Lois Lane and Supergirl with possibly two enemies from Krypton that threatens earth that are connected with Krypton's history. I love to see Dana Delany make her return as Lois Lane and Summer Glau reprise her role as Supergirl from Superman Batman Apocalype. The villains could be similar to Zod and Faora from Man Of Steel with Ron Perlman and Helen Slater doing there voices and George Newbern as Jor-El and Cobie Smulders as Lara. This DC Universe movie would tie in with the live action ''Man Of Steel'' movie. It would be even more fantastic if Zack Snyder joined Bruce Timm in producing the animated film with Phil Bourassa as lead animation designer. I hope this will happen.

Kevin Conroy said he did voice work for an upcoming movie featuring the Flash:
"Oh I just, just last night, I recording a new animated movie...that features The Flash, it's more about The Flash, but Batman is in it as well. It's a Flash...Flashpoint! Flashpoint? I think it's Flashpoint,"
Here's the video: http://youtu.be/8DBgITN9so8?t=5m21s
I think we all wanted a Flash animated movie (I still think it should have been an origin movie and they should have called it First Run in line with Green Lantern's First Flight), but I didn't expect Flashpoint!
I guess they just had to find a way to get Batman in there.
So I suppose then Conroy will be doubling as both Bruce Wayne and his alternate universe father Thomas Wayne?
Woah! FINALLY! I've been dying to see a Flash movie!!
I never read Flashpoint... I know it's right before the new 52 reboot. Is it considered a good Flash story?
WOW! Flashpoint! Very unexpected...and yet 10 seconds of thinking about it and it makes a certain amount of sense, what with Geoff Johns having so much influence across the DC spectrum.
It's a pretty solid Flash story and it's got great potential to spotlight all those lesser used characters everyone's clamoring for- Aquaman, Cyborg, Wonder Woman. Granted they're radically alternate versions, but no less cool.
The story itself is also pretty self-contained. When I read the primary TPB, I didn't feel lost or like pieces of the story were missing or relegated to tie-in books. When I later read some tie-in material it enhanced the world but didn't redefine the main storyline. It was refreshing after events like Secret Invasion and Siege, which had tons of relevant stuff happening outside the main mini-series. Even when reading Blackest Night I felt that the GL tie-in issues were necessary to get a grip on the story. Flashpoint feeling self-contained might just be a by-product of alt-world story-lines crossover, like House of M, which also works with just the main mini.
Anyway slight tangent there...basically there's quite a few moments from Flashpoint that I'm looking forward to seeing in animation, like when Barry tries to jump start his powers with Batman's help. That can be such an awesome scene with music and SFX and lighting!
I just pray that this Flashpoint movie is not intended as a continuation of Justice League: Doom. I want better animation and I want someone other than Michael Rosenbaum voicing The Flash. I absolutely loved Rosenbaum as Wally West in JL/JLU, but I didn't care for him as Barry Allen at all.
Please, please have a Canterbury Cricket appearance in there somewhere.
"...And then Rorschach goes 'BARNEY! My Pebbles!' or some such thing... but it was really funny."
Here's an example from Justice League: Doom (and coincidentally the clearest I've read of)
Seems like I'm one of the few people who liked Michael Rosenbaum as Barry Allen in JL (I might even go as far as to say he's my favorite Barry). I wouldn't mind him reprising the role again.
Cool, I'm glad that DC is thinking ahead. Flashpoint should be exciting.

Batman and Flash!!!
C'mon Bruce Timm, Where's the Flash Origin Treatment???
Well it's better than nothing.
And FYI, only me and GL fanboys will buy Sinestro Corps Wars if they do make it.
The whole public doesn't want any GL movies.
That is why the film and Emerarld Knights both flopped.
Please stop ramming GL to the public...they obviously had enough of him.
I personally enjoyed Emerald Knights and I'm not a huge Green Lantern fan. Nathan Fillion's performance made the movie work in my opinion. If Bruce Timm and company could give the same Gotham and Emerald Knight treatment to Superman with Tim Daly and Dana Delany, It would be something to look forward to!
I would hope they would avoid stories like Gotham Knights and Emerald Knights. I understand if people liked them, but the storytelling was a little too disjointed for my tastes. The former was a little boring, and the latter had so many characters, it was hard for me to care about all of them.
As for Flashpoint, strange choice. I guess I'm not surprised they couldn't do a "Flash" story without injecting more popular characters such as Batman into it.
I'm glad they're doing a Flash film. It may have to do with the studio discussing the Flash live action film again:
