Bruce Timm Launches ‘Justice League: Gods And Monsters Chronicles’ Animated Series On Machinima

JLGAMC

Warner Bros. has been steadily producing a whole lot of direct-to-video animated movies about DC Comics over the past few years, and while a lot of them have been adaptations of existing stories, there are a few original storylines mixed in there as well. The latest project, Justice League: Gods and Monsters is one of those, and it's got something that should make even the most jaded viewer a little interested: Bruce Timm, the animator best known for being one of the creators of Batman: The Animated Series.

Now, we're getting a look at what we can expect in the movie courtesy of Machinima's Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles, a web series coming out in advance of the movie that's set to reveal the project's much darker version of the Justice League.

Capcom Announces A New ‘Mega Man’ Animated Series From Man Of Action

It really seems like Capcom's Mega Man should've been a cartoon for the past thirty years, right? Not only are the games themselves popular, but the idea of a friendly, big-eyed robot with interchangeable weapons taken from equally cartoony enemies is one of the most toyetic concepts that has ever existed, and that's before you get to the cute dog that transforms into a jet-powered hoverboard. And yet, with the exception of a short-lived syndicated cartoon in 1994 --- and a couple of strange videos promoting Japanese tourism --- the Blue Bomber has been absent from the small screen for a long, long time.

Now, that's going to be remedied: Capcom and Dentsu, a Japanese advertising agency and animation producer, are teaming up with the Man of Action Entertainment to create a new animated series set for a 26-episode run.

‘Teen Titans Go’ Producer Michael Jelenic On The ‘Young Justice’ Crossover And The Show’s Changing Voice

hqdefault2

Over almost two years and over eighty episodes on the air, Cartoon Network’s Teen Titans Go has dropped its characters into a wide variety of different situations. They might go to the future, meet alternate versions of themselves, or die of old age. There are even songs.

Some critics have accused the show of being too silly, so in the episode debuting today, “Let’s Get Serious,” the Titans meet some of these critics in the form of Young Justice, the teen superhero team from their own, departed, animated show --- and they’re definitely not pleased with what they see. To battle their critics, the Titans grimace really hard until they too become incredibly serious, muscled, gritty one-liner-spouting versions of themselves.

We spoke to series producer Michael Jelenic about the crossover, bouncing criticisms back at detractors and pushing the show into even wider, weirder directions.
