SDCC’14: DC reveals plans for three animated movies in 2015
During the Batman: Assault on Arkham panel at the San Diego Comic Con, DC revealed three movies coming in 2015.
THRONE OF ATLANTIS
We already know about Throne of Atlantis, as that movie was announced some time ago.
The film, a continuation of the story begun in last winter’s Justice League: War, brings back much of the cast, including Jason O’Mara (Batman), Shemar Moore (Cyborg), Christopher Gorham (the Flash), Sean Astin (Shazam). Several Warner Animation vets return to play in the DC sandbox, including Nathan Fillion (Green Lantern), Rosario Dawson (Wonder Woman) and Jerry O’Connell (Superman). Being Human’s Sam Witwer, another Clone Wars alum, stars as Aquaman’s devious brother Orm, who is behind the move towards war, while Sumalee Montano, who played Katana in Beware the Batman, plays the fiery badass Mera, Aquaman’s future queen. – via TV Guide
Throne of Atlantis arrives in early 2015.
BATMAN VS. ROBIN
Looks like Batman is going to fight everyone this year. While Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice will feature Superman and Batman fighting it out on the big screen, Batman Vs. Robin looks to be a loose adaptation of the Court of Owls storyline. Not much more is known about this project, but as soon as we know more, you’ll know more.
JUSTICE LEAGUE: GODS AND MONSTERS
The final reveal was Justice League: Gods and Monsters that will be an original story written by… Bruce Timm. It will not be related to the 2001 JLA story written by Dan Jolley.
This week, Batman: Assault on Arkham lands on Digital HD (iTunes and the like), and will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on August 12, 2014.
