DC Announces Two New Animated Films For 2015


We already know that the Aquaman-centric DC animated feature film Justice League: Throne of Atlantis will kick things off in 2015, but it’s just been revealed that it won’t be alone. 2015 will consist of three DC animated films, as announced during the San Diego Comic-Con panel for the upcoming Batman: Assault on Arkham. 

The two new features are Batman Versus Robina sequel to this year’s Son of Batman, and an original story from Batman: The Animated Series co-creator Bruce Timm called Justice League: Gods & Monsters


Batman Versus Robin will be based on the Scott Snyder/Greg Capullo New 52 comic story “The Court of Owls,” which is one of my personal favorite Batman stories. However, it never featured Batman facing off with his sidekick, so expect this to be a loose adaptation of the run, much like Son of Batman was only partly based on Grant Morrison and Andy Kubert’s Son of Batman tale.

There is a 2001 Justice League of America story titled “Gods & Monsters,” but as Timm’s film will be an original work, I suspect they only share a name.

Exact release dates and further plot details weren’t revealed, so we’ll just have to keep those projects on the backburner for now. I’ve liked most of the DC animated features they’ve put out over the years though and am definitely excited to see what they come up with next. They screened Batman: Assault on Arkham at SDCC, but if you weren’t there, DC has released the opening few minutes to hold you over until the film’s August 12th, 2014 home video and Digital Download release.

    well, I guess if you can’t bring live action super heroes to the big screen like Marvel, then you make animated movies. Or at least, animated Batman movies.

        JL gods&monsters: seriously wicked movie that takes place in an alternative reality. Now in my personal top 3 over DC animated films. For me a very surprising plot. Highly recommended if you’re in to anti-heroic cartoons with the un-avoidable moral in the end 😉

    TBH DC vs Marvel, DC wins in the animated department while Marvel wins at Live action. I mean, we all can’t wait for the Justice League movie next year. Been WAY Too long in the making.

      I swear Marvel just throws darts at a board when it comes to picking a animation team. DC has stayed pretty solid with a misstep here and there.
