    I got one, Lego Batman: Halloween Horror. It's a TV Movie in Lego of course but it loosely inspired from the Scarecrow Harvest of Fear Set and it would spun-off a Sequel around the Justice League Dark.

    Plot
    It's Halloween at Gotham City, and the Scarecrow is free from Arkham. With the help of his newfound team (Silver Banshee, Solomon Grundy, Felix Faust, Gentleman Ghost, Tala and Doctor Mist) he plans on Halloween night to put the world into living Fear. Batman, Blue Beetle, Red Hood, Batgirl & Red Robin teams up to save Halloween & the world before it plunges into an Eternal Nightmare. Along the way, they get an unexpected help form a Chinese mystic who owns an Antique Shop in Gotham.

    Cast
    The heroic cast would consist of Kevin Conroy in his first foray as the Caped Crusader in Lego form, Todd Harberkorn (Fairy Tail, Soul Eater) as Red Robin, Troy Baker (Avengers Assemble, Batman: Arkham Knight) as Red Hood, Kimberly Brooks (Voltron Legendary Defender, Bioshock Infinite) as Batgirl, Carlos Alazraqui (Reno 911, Handy Manny) as Blue Beetle & special guest voice Star Trek veteran & Internet Personalty George Takei as Mr. Wu. The Antique propriter & Chinese Mystic who helps the heroes.

    The villainous voice cast would feature of Crispin Freeman (Overwatch, Hellsing) as the Scarecrow, Stephanie Sheh (Sailor Moon, Naruto) as the Silver Banshee, David Kaye (Last Week Tonight with John Oliver) as Felix Faust, Robin Atkin Downes (The Strain, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) as Gentleman Ghost, Carl Lumbly (Alias) as Doctor Mist, Misty Lee (Ultimate Spider-Man) as Tala & Mark Hamill (Star Wars) as Solomon Grundy.

    Yes George Takei would be in this for a Good Reason. Will work on the Spin-Off soon with the Justice League Dark. Though Batman will cameo.

    Now behold, the Sequel/Spin-off to Halloween Horror, Lego Justice League: After Dark.

    Inspired after the The New 52's Justice League Dark series, the supernatural team faces a threat from another dimension that's been raved about since the Scarecrow's Halloween crime. Where Doctor Destiny, is unleashed to finish where the Scarecrow started, along with the return of Felix Faust seeking a revenge like any other with Klarion the Witch Boy devising a plan that involves magic unlike any other.

    The heroic voice cast of the Justice League Dark would be led by Matt Ryan reprising the role of John Constantine. With the rest of the team consisting of Jennifer Hale (Mass Effect, The Powerpuff Girls) as Zatanna, Steven Blum (Cowboy Bebop, Star Wars Rebels) as Deadman, Mark Hamill (Star Wars) as Swamp Thing, Cree Summer (A Different World) as Madame Xanadu, Sean Schemmel (Dragon Ball Z, Fallout 4) as Frankenstein, Veronica Taylor (Pokemon, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) as Raven, Travis Willingham (Fullmetal Alchemist, Avengers Assemble) as Etrigan the Demon and featuring Scott Frerichs of TeamFourStar fame rounds off the cast as Shade the Changing Man. Kevin Conroy returns to voice Batman in a Cameo.

    The Villainous cast would be consisted of Maurice LaMarche (Pinky & The Brain) as Doctor Destiny, Lucien Dodge (Bleach, Tiger & Bunny) as Klarion the Witch Boy, Kari Wahlgren (Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness, Fate/Zero) as Enchantress, Kevin Michael Richardson (The Cleveland Show) as Blackbriar Thorn and David Kaye (Last week Tonight with John Oliver) returning as Felix Faust.

    Right now, I'm starving for a good Superman movie, animated or otherwise. The last good one was All-Star Superman, though I feel like Man of Steel is somewhat unfairly maligned.

    My proposal? Something along the lines of the Grant Morrison New 52 Superman. A lot of writers aren't comfortable with a powerful Superman, so working with one who can't even fly might put a lot of writers in a good spot. More importantly, I think a lot of fans would warm up to a version of Superman who's more brazen and decisive, as Morrison tried to do by bringing back the vibe from the early run of Action Comics. It's kind of sad to think that since All-Star Superman, the best movie take on the character was likely the one from Gods and Monsters, and that's intended to be a radical, almost opposite interpretation of the character. But when you take away that character's lineage, and his willingness to murder, I find it's actually pretty much in line with early Golden Age Superman. Superman is at his best when he's overly nice to the common person (think of the Regan scene from the All-Star comic), but shows some anger (and maybe even condescension) toward scumbags, supervillains, or useless bureaucrats who try to control him.

    The caveat, though, would be that I would stay away from the latter portion of Morrison's run. My head still spins trying to make sense of the 5D-imp story...

    Grant Morrison's involvement would be a huge plus.

    No real suggestions for voice acting, though I wouldn't mind seeing Nolan North take another swing at Kal-El. As for Lex, Jesse Eisenberg should be asked to take a shot at voice acting. Just kidding. Seriously, try some stunt casting and get the guy everyone wanted for the big screen and get Cranston.

    Suicide Squad: The Animated Series:
    A TV show about the Suicide Squad that takes place after the movie and premieres on weekday nights on Cartoon Network. The first season would have 25 episodes and premiere in 2017.

    They'd probably have to call it Task Force X.

    And it would probably be on Adult Swim or Toonami.

    25 episodes? Weekdays? Sorry, SparkleMan, but that wouldn't work. I'd go with a weekly, hour-long format. What's wrong with an hour-long animated drama, anyway? Nice idea, but knowing how CN plays their comedy shows into the ground, putting this show on a weekly schedule---and, as Troy suggested, on [as], would make more sense. Either that, or you spin Toonami off from [as] and give it a Saturday prime time berth ahead of [as].

    So what's wrong with Tim Daly or George Newbern as Superman, one more time? Throw in Gilbert Gottfried as Mxyzptlk, and.....!

    It takes up too much resources. WBA tried to do it with Justice League but after the second season, they were told to shorten it to 22 minutes.

    "Justice League: Warworld"
    An Animated movie based after the post Crisis Incarnation of the Character that has Mongul abducting the Justice League in Gladiatorial Combat in favor of Superman's Freedom in his Planet Size Fortress, Warworld. If the League loses, then the Earth is Lost. While True colors has been revealed to the League Member, The Question.

    The Voice acting would consist of Peter Cullen of Transformers Fame as Mongul (Think Evil Optimus Prime), Tyler Hoechlin (Teen Wolf, Road to Perdition) voicing Superman from the CW's Supergirl, Charlie Adler (Tiny Toons Adventures, Transformers) as the Question, Rachel Robinson (Final Fantasy 13, Ikki Tousen) as Wonder Woman, Darren Criss (Glee) as The Flash, Travis Willingham (Fullmetal Alchemist, Batman: Bad Blood) as Green Lantern, Dave Fennoy (The Walking Dead, Batman: Arkham Knight) as Martian Manhunter, Patrick Seitz (The Seven Deadly Sins, JoJo's Bizzare Adventure) as Aquaman, Ogie Banks (Ultimate Spider-Man, Gundam Unicorn) as Cyborg, David Kaye (Last Week Tonight with John Oliver) as Doomsday, Robin Weigert (Deadwood) as Hawkgirl and featuring the reprisals of Troy Baker (Batman: Arkham Knight, Telltale's Batman) as Batman and Summer Glau (Firefly) as Supergirl.

    Love the idea would be nice to see an adaption of something that isn't is from the last ten years or related to Batman.

    I also forgot, David Kaye's voice for Doomsday would be based off after Christopher Sabat's Omega Shenron from Dragon Ball GT.

    Hmm... I love Peter Cullen as a voice actor, but I don't quite think he's the right fit for Mongol. Darkseid maybe, but not Mongol. I kind'a liked an earlier idea for Imari Williams actually.

    Peter Cullen voicing Mongul would honestly feel like he is voicing a Evil Optimus Prime. Or in this Case, Shattered Glass Prime. Fun Fact: Shattered Glass Prime's Voice is based after of Venger from Dungeons & Dragons.

    I'm thinking a DC Superhero Girls movie where the main characters get transported to an alternate dimension where they run into their evil counterparts at Super Villain High. Said school would be run by Lexi Luthor (a gender bent Lex Luthor voiced by Tress MacNeille). However, the evil counterpart students are actually just misguided and would perform a heel face turn at the end, getting across a moral on how everyone is capable of good and evil and while you can't have one without the other, you can control it. The main voice cast for the series would reprise their roles and voice their evil counterparts. Shea Fontana and Jennifer Coyle would return as the writer and director.

    And here's one featuring Swamp Thing.

    Mark Hamill - Dr. Alec Holland/Swamp Thing
    David Kaye - John Constantine
    Kate Higgins - Abby Holland
    Travis Willingham - Matthew Cable
    J.B. Blanc - Anton Arcane
    Robin Atkin Downes - Dr. Jason Woodrue/Floronic Man
    Liam O’Brien - Sargon the Sorcerer

    Sorry, but Dr. Mist was actually a hero, as founder and leader of the Global Guardians, before the mid-80's reboot. You're confusing the good doctor with the Mist, a villain dating back to the Golden Age Starman, as memory serves.

    It's the Nommo Balewa Mist who is in this.

    Return of Superman. (A working title) Basically an animated film adapting elements from the Richard Donner Superman, with DC Douglas voicing the Christopher Reeve Superman, and Jim Miskerman as the Gene Hackman Lex Luthor.

    I thought it would be appropriate considering the two upcoming 1966 based Batman movies.

    And that's the hero I referred to, retconned by recent DC tweaks.

    Well this one will be based after the Pre Crisis Version. But one more thing, What's your thoughts on the Warworld part with Peter Cullen as Mongul and David Kaye as a Christopher Sabat Esque Doomsday?
