    Yeah I liked Jla Adventures for that reason. It was tonally different than a lot of other stuff they've been putting out.

    And while I don't mind the more violent stuff, I do wish they had some form of balance to it.

    Seems like content with one family-friendly thing at a time (believe last year they did the LEGO Batman movie, which was just the cutscenes from the game but w/e!)

    Kingdom Come

    I like the idea of Kingdom Come adapted as a 4-part original video animation (OVA) of arount 40 minutes per chapter. Each segment could be budgeted the same as one of the full-length DC Universe Animated Original Movies, allowing for higher production values.

    It was very close to the game's cut scenes, but there are a few differences here and there, and I think it was actually reanimated since the game's cut scenes appeared to be rendered on the fly by the consoles.

    Among the NYCC 2014 Q&A's and Roundtables, this one from From the Batcave had some eyebrow raising to it.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GzgEzz5azaI

    1) Tucker hints the 'next movie will have characters in it you haven't seen in the DVDs'. (4:10-18)

    If he's talking about Timm's Gods & Monsters or the next New 52/Animated one. We don't know. I'd say the latter.

    2) Tucker answers the idea of DC Nation hasn't been discarded, might appear again but not on network TV. (4:22-5:12)

    3) Tucker had to be cryptic but there are still plans for DC Showcase. Didn't sounds like it was anything greenlit or they're in early development. (4:22-5:12)

    What other DC Characters/Teams Besides...

    Batman/Superman/Justice League you like to see?
    Me personally:
    Either a sequel to Wonder Woman or a new one
    A solo Flash story
    The Freedom Fighters
    The Doom Patrol
    The Metal Men
    The Teen Titans
    Legion of Superheroes

    Now I know they will never be made but it be nice to see something
    different.

    As far as event stories that could be adapted into Justice League movies while giving a central focus to a single League member, I think these could work:

    Flash: Gorilla Warfare.

    Green Lantern: Sinestro Corps., and Lights Out.

    Superman: Superman: Unchained (Though this is still ongoing), and H'el on Earth (Which actually had the Justice League involved, I believe).

    Wonder Woman: The current Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang run, or maybe even an adaption of a Superman/Wonder Woman arc?

    Cyborg: Well, there's no real Cyborg story that could probably incorporate the League, so I'm just going to reiterate an original Cyborg and Metal Men movie would be pretty awesome :D.

    Aquaman: Death of a King.

    Haha, when Tucker says, "There's about five good Justice League stories, to be honest."

    Romano does some teasing during NYCC
    At this point, I think she's alluding to Gods & Monsters.

    Be interesting to find out who they are, and then speculate for which characters she might have always been trying to get them for before either Gods and Monster or whatever movie they're in ;).

    Been watching EP Daily, and James Tucker was interviewed and says that there will be a new original animated movies in the same continuity of War and Throne of Atlantis that are not based on the New 52 comics.

    Anyone still holding out hope that they eventually do a Judas Contract movie? Maybe if that Teen Titans tv series ever gets off the ground.

    Phil Bourassa posted some concept art of Deathstroke that has nothing to do with Young Justice or Son of Batman. It's unclear what project it's for. Could be nothing to do with the movie line but still pretty neat design, imo.

    It's a live-action show planned for TNT.

    That is actually his best Deathstroke design... hopefully it will be utilized moving forward. Perhaps in the animated project that all the Teen Titans Go! cast are ticked off about.

    Those are some pretty awesome Deathstroke designs :cool:

    Though I'm partial to the second versions Yojimbo just posted, the mask on the first one is pretty cool if different than I'd expect for a Deathstroke mask :).

    Though Bourassa claims they're old concepts, so presumably he could have went with something different for the final product (YJ, Flashpoint, Son of Batman). Though it would definitely be nice to see them in use eventually ;).

    Now that I think about it, of the popular DC characters that Bourassa has worked on/designed, he's never done a Catwoman design has he?

    11/20: Yeah, the mask is pretty sweet.

    I believe the closest thing to a Catwoman he's done was on Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths - when the chart of Made Men are shown by Luthor. Catwoman's alternate universe version is the first in the third row of Superwoman's lieutenants (but even then Jerome Moore might have done that design under Bourassa's lead). Unless he's done concept art for a project or a DC Nation bio that's never seen the light of day.

    12/31: James did a year-end sales article on War, Son of Batman, and Assault on Arkham.

    Since we all knew Batman VS Robin was the follow up after Throne Of Atlantis. I was curious what would come after that. The third Justice League movie of course! But most importantly, a movie with BATMAN in it!

    Look, I honestly like Batman as much as everyone else. OK maybe not since I think Batman Begins is the best Batman movie and I have nothing great to say other than "it's ok/mediocre" when it comes to Scott Snyder's Batman. But seriously, MORE Batman? I thought we would get something without Batman after Batman VS Robin. Counting these two DCU movies (and The Dark Knight Returns individually), there are 24 total. Batman appears in 17 of them. And counting the upcoming movies, he'll have appeared in 7 in a row. Can the Batman movies be made "separate" so we can get an "extra" DCU movie that isn't BATMAN, or doesn't have BATMAN in it, or has nothing to do with BATMAN? We get 3 of these movies a year, can we now get 4 each year and make it mandatory that at least one of them not be BATMAN, or not have BATMAN in it?

    Mod Note: Posts #99 to 103 were moved from Gods & Monsters to this thread where it was on topic and more appropriate to continue anyway.

    Money, Money, Money.

    Why risk putting out another solo Superman film when the last two couldn't even crack $3 million in home video sales. The best you can hope for at this point is a Justice League film with Batman in a supporting role, ala Justice League: The Throne of Atlantis.
