Young Justice is coming back for a third season. This is not a hoax. This is not a drill. This is the "Real Deal" Evander Holyfield of announcements. Take a moment. Catch your breath. It's all real, and it's happening. Young Justice. Season Three. Words we never thought we'd hear from the WB.
Sure, no network or premiere date has been announced, but the hype train is officially leaving the station as Young Justice's third season is entering production right now at Warner Bros. Animation.
Next year, Warner Bros. Animation and DC Comics are bringing a little darkness to the DC Animated Universe. After focusing so long on the likes of Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman and other household names, the mystical side of the DCU will finally get its due in Justice League Dark. Inspired by the New 52 comic of the same name, the upcoming direct-to-video feature stars Constantine, Zatanna, Deadman, Etrigan and Swamp Thing as they aid Batman (of course) in ridding Gotham of some demonic forces.
We caught up with stars Matt Ryan, reprising his live action role of John Constantine, and Jason O'Mara, the DCAU's resident Batman, as well as supervising producer James Tucker and character designer Phil Bourassa, to talk about Justice League Dark at New York Comic Con.
Have you ever wondered why Batman can’t be Batman, but also kind of like an angsty, teenage Spider-Man too? If you answered “yes” to any or all of these questions and have somehow never managed to hear of Batman Beyond, hold onto your bats, because I’m about to blow your freakin' mind.
With the recent launch of Batman Beyond Rebirth #1 as part of DC’s Rebirth initiative, this seemed like as good a time as any to take a look at some of the amazing art the show inspired.
After years of waiting, Wonder Woman fans are finally going to get their due. Not only will the Amazonian princess appear in two films in 2017 — her standalone Wonder Woman next June and the Justice League crossover in November — she will also be the subject of an upcoming biopic of comic book creator William Moulton Marston and the two women who played a pivotal role in the creation of the character.
Mass media adaptations of superheroes can reach a much wider audience and tend to bring in an entirely new bunch of fans, but there's one advantage their comic book counterparts have always had: Events! Comics, more than any other medium, excel at complicated crossovers and extended storylines built around a single idea, and they've been doing it so long that no other medium can come close. Until now, I mean.
Cartoon Network's Teen Titans Go! has been launching into some truly comic book style storytelling over the past few years, including a crossover with Powerpuff Girls, and now, they're set for their first big extended event: A week's worth of daily episodes that find the Titans shipwrecked on a desert island and caught up in all manner of Gilliganesque hijinx --- oh, and also being hunted by an alien. Check out the full roster of episodes and clips from each one below!
Every year, Warner Bros and DC release two animated features that take place in their new home video DC canon, continually building on the groundwork laid by previous entries, and it's these continually expanding animated universe films that have been the driving force behind DC Comics' home video expansion. This April, the Teen Titans will emerge in this universe for the first time in Justice League vs Teen Titans.
The film centers around Damian Wayne being sent to learn teamwork from the Teen Titans after he nearly botches a Justice League mission. Of course, he just happens to arrive as the Leaguers find themselves at the mercy of Trigon, Raven's demonic father. As you can guess, Trigon's back to attempt to take over the world once more, and it will be up to the Teen Titans to rally and save the day from the hordes of hellspawn and brainwashed heroes.
here's another new Batman animated movie on the horizon from DC and Warner Bros. Animation. Shocking, I know. Due to arrive in 2016, Batman: Bad Blood centers around the disappearance of Batman himself, and features Nightwing, Damian Wayne and other members for the Bat-family searching for their mentor. Though it draws a little inspiration from events surrounding Batman, Inc., Bad Blood is another the DC Animated Universe's original tales. More importantly, it finally introduces some much-needed diversity into the animated Bat-family with additions of Batwoman and Batwing.
At New York Comic Con, the creative team and some of the cast gathered to talk about the film. We were on hand for the round table session with director Jay Oliva, character designer Phil Bourassa and the DC animated feature supervising producer, James Tucker to talk about the film, and the importance of getting new blood beyond the traditional heroes into these direct-to-video features.
After more than 45 years, Scooby-Doo is finally getting the Lego treatment. Warner Bros. and Lego announced a partnership that would see Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, and the rest of Mystery, Inc. brought to life in block form in five new sets, as well as new made-for-video features from WB Animation.
Remember the great DC Nation Shorts that used to run Saturday mornings alongside Teen Titans Go!, Young Justice and Green Lantern: The Animated Series? Remember how one time DC and Warner Bros. got Robert Valley to do an absolutely, ridiculously awesome and stylish take on Wonder Woman for a few of those shorts? DC Collectibles remembers.
Brianne Drouhard's Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld animation shorts are easily one of our favorite DC Comics media projects of the past few years. The serial is exciting, it's got great action, and it's an incredibly interesting spin on Dan Mishkin, Gary Cohn and Ernie Colon's original idea, sending Amy Winston into a video game fantasy world where she has to level up and fight the bad guys to get home. And it's also an incredibly beautiful series.
The character and monster designs are fantastic, but the backgrounds are breathtaking, which is why I was excited to see that background painter Mari Hosaka had posted a bunch of them at her Tumblr. Check 'em out below to take a trip through Gemworld's forests, volcanoes and caves -- and, if you're me, get frustrated that you can't actually take a vacation there.
