SDCC ’13: DC Announces A Bruce Timm Short Plus Their Next Wave Of Animated Films
DC is gearing up for an impressive slate of new movies coming out over the next few years. We’re talking about animated films of course. We have to wait until WB‘s panel tomorrow to learn if there are any developments on the live-action front besides Man of Steel 2. At Comic-Con today, the company unveiled their newest slate of animated direct-to-DVD films as well as news on a DC Nation animated short from the legendary Bruce Timm.
At an animation panel earlier today, Bruce Timm announced that he would be working on a new black and white animated Batman short to run on Cartoon Network‘s DC Nation. The short will run during the commercials of the network’s DC shows Beware the Batman and Teen Titans Go!. Timm remained tight lipped on what the short would be about, but he confirmed that it would have an 0ld-schol style and draw inspiration from the Bob Kane Batman era.
On the longer animated features side of things, DC just announced their next three films. The news was rolled out after the screening of Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox. We’ll be seeing Justice League: War in 2014 based off the first storyline from Geoff Johns in the rebooted 52 Universe, Son of Batman which is about Damian Wayne, and Batman: Assault on Arkham. That last one is pretty self explanatory. So you have New 52 Justice League, the story that introduced us to Damian Wayne, and an Arkham movie all coming down the pipeline. I would imagine DC will stick to their three movies a year plan, so this could all be coming up throughout 2014. That’s all the news there is at this time, but we’ll obviously be hearing a lot more about this soon. What do you think about the news of DC‘s next animated efforts?
So about future DC animated features: Justice League: War in 2014, Son Of Batman and Batman: Assault on Arkham. #dcsdcc
