    Sounds like Burt being Burt, trying to secure some future gigs for himself. Needless to say, his comments have not received a warm reception on the internet.

    I honestly think they should just leave it alone (for now). You can't just replace Adam and expect to capture the same magic. Time to move on to other things.

    I don't think the reviews of the film have turned up online yet.

    I'm specifically talking about Burt Ward's comments.

    I didn't think that was clear in your previous post either. But it's all good.

    [Added by Mod: when a new animated batman movie coming out]??

    Mod Note: One rule here is a post must have at least a 3 word sentence. I added the question in your thread title. Your thread has been merged to the General Animated Feature thread because it's more pertinent here than an individual thread.

    When isn't one coming out? ;)

    Batman vs. Two-Face will be available for download this coming Tuesday, October 10. The Blu-ray and DVD will release on October 17.

    Batman: Gotham by Gaslight should be out in early 2018.

    If they are remaking Superman Doomsday, I think they should remake Crisis On Two Earths, and use the original JLU script with John Stewart and Static. Bring back the original voices, and make it DCAU. And don't change ANY of the script, so there is no bad language, and it's rated PG. I would MUCH rather have World's Collide done right instead of a new Death of Superman.

    bored! We want Green Lantern, Hawkman, Dr.Fate, New Gods!


    and if they just want to sell Batman movies, let them be team-ups!
    Batman/The Atom, Batman/Spectre, Batman/Green Lantern, Batman/Green Arrow, Batman/Mr.Miracle......

    I'd rather see a Wonder Woman '77 movie set in the same canon as Caped Crusaders and vs. Two-Face then have the 4th one be WW meeting Nightwing and Batgirl (i.e. their separate investigations lead them to a cross over). Write off Bruce as retired and keep the movie away from Gotham. Basically the same idea as one of those '66 comic story arcs.

    The only reason I'd want to see a third '66 movie at this point, in-spite of Adam West's passing, is to see them do '66 Poison Ivy who was cut from the latest film (per the panel).

    You understand the primary thrust of the DC Universe line is and always has been to have adult skewed films meaning PG-13 and now R rated movies.

    The past movies that had a PG rating were probably a fluke -- I don't remember off the top of my head right now which were. They don't make the movie thinking "Oh, this is gonna be a PG movie, this a PG-13, this a R movie." (yeah that sounds counter-intuitive/dumb/naive). But thinking along the production process of 'oh this is gonna make it R, this is gonna...' really hampers the creative flow. They make a story in the purest sense then edit from there when need be. They pitch, they get a greenlight, write drafts, get notes on what content stays or gets cut out, get an approved teleplay, board, record, send to animation, recuts, etc. Someone tells them if it has to be recut to get a certain rating. Someone else or a separate group, MPAA, rates the movie, they find out and so on until the release date.

    Crisis on Two Earths was a good compromise because at that point early into the line's history the Powers That Be execs had invested into a new brand and there was no point in revisiting past shows, they wanted new material. Knowing the Timmverse was in frozen hibernation, they made the best of the situation and changed the visual design and a few story points like guest heroes but it's for the most part unchanged from the late Mr. McDuffie's original screenplay. It would never have been made any other way at that time. If they waited until like now to make it in the wake of Batman and Harley Quinn in the original style? Rather gauche with McDuffie having passed away for several years.

    Yes, this Death of Superman two-parter seems like a total "George Lucas" revisionist move in the absence of context. We have to wait and see what led to this being greenlit.

    PG movies will always exist in that unnamed line like the DC Super Hero Girls or Batman Unlimited in the past but again, that's new content not revisiting past series.

    Alls I know is that Crisis on Two Earths sucked by being adult oriented and out of the DCAU. It was a decent movie, but if it was a kiddie JLU flick, it woulda been great. I doubt Dwayne would object to an adaption done as he originally envisioned, especially because DC was the one to pull Static out of it.

    That was always McDuffie's script though right?

    Oh, come on, live a little. Let me point that though the DCAU was aimed at kids, it also has a popular fanbase of teenagers and adults as well plus do you really want every DC animated DTV film to be rated PG? No and to be fair, there's no need to remake Crisis on Two Earths to be set in the DCAU. That's why the main purpose of the DC Universe line was to move away from just doing PG rated films to doing films that rated PG-13 and now rated R.

    Yes, it always was. He hardly changed the original script. For example, Luthor was on his book tour you see talked about in JLU's "The Return" and in CO2E, he's in jail reading. The line up Batman summoned for help changed a few times during CO2E's production. Hal for John. Mr. Timm is on the record here at TZ (and McDuffie elsewhere on his old forum and CBR I think) saying it's 95% intact.

    That sounds like a great idea. I'd be all for that. Wonder Woman '77 is definitely the next avenue to travel down no matter what.
