    Since watching this I found the original and have watched it so many times on HD.

    What’s so frustrating for me is knowing it’s just relegated to “cut-scene” status when it could be a mind-blowing feature-length release.

    Why is DC sticking to the relatively unchanged animated feature “look” that they’ve been using for the past 5 years? Why wouldn’t they try something like this?

    • My guess would be because it isn’t cost effective. Also, Final Fantasy Advent Children was rumored to take around 10 years to make and that was a similar style to this.

        Really? The craft of CG has come a long way since the release of Advent Children. That must be at least 5 years old now, right? Would it be that much less cost effective than traditional animation methods or even the of 2d and 3d that you see in shows like Futurama or even Batman:Under the Red Hood?

        5 years ago, the gigabyte was a large unit of measurement; now all I hear is how petabytes are the next big thing. My mobile phone today rivals the laptop I owned in 2005. Surely 80 more minutes of animation like this would be affordable enough to entice a large consumer base to throw the moola Time Warner’s way?
