Warner Bros. Animation insiders have estimated the average production budgets for the DC Universe Animated Movies at $3.5 million (US). At least one poster here (who shall remain nameless) has insisted that the DTV movies in this series that were produced by TMS had much higher budgets--about $78 million in the case of Green Lantern: First Flight. I asked Amid Amidi of Cartoon Brew via e-mail about this. He replied: I hope that this settles the issue.
