While fans eagerly await the upcoming release of the “Batman and Superman: Battle of the Super Sons” animated movie (available on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray and Digital on October 18, 2022), DC announced at San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend that they have further animated films due to release over the next year or so.
While “Green Lantern: Beware My Power,” the latest movie set in DC’s current animated universe and the first DC movie to be centered around John Stewart, will be released on August 7, DC announced that there are four new DC animated movies that will be released in 2023.
The titles of those films are “Legion of Super-Heroes,” “Batman: The Doom that Came to Gotham,” “RWBY x Justice League” and “Justice League: Warworld”.
While details on the four movies remain pretty slim at this point, we do know a few things. “Legion of Super-Heroes” will be the first time we’ll see an animated project focused fully on the Legion of Super-Heroes since the animated series ended in 2008. In the film, Supergirl finds she needs a few lessons as she acclimates to Earth… and Superman looks to the heroes of the Legion to get it done.
“Batman: The Doom that Came to Gotham” is inspired by the 2000-2001 Elseworlds miniseries written by Mike Mignola and Richard Pace and illustrated by Troy Nixey.
“Justice Society x RWBY” promises to be just that – a crossover between DC and the Rooster Teeth animated series RWBY. (Comic readers know that this isn’t the first time the characters have met.) Meanwhile, little is known about “Justice League: Warworld,” but you know every time you have Warworld factoring in the story, the stakes are going to be huge.
