Superman/Batman: Public Enemies New to DVD in September
June 29, 2009

Although we’re still waiting for Green Lantern: First Flight, due out at the end of July, Warner Home Video has announced the next original DC animated movie.

Superman/Batman: Public Enemies will be released on September 29, 2009. It’s based on the graphic novel by Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness, adapted by Stan Berkowitz (Justice League: The New Frontier) and directed by Sam Liu (The Batman). The plot is described as follows:

United States President Lex Luthor uses the oncoming trajectory of a Kryptonite asteroid to frame Superman and declare a $1 billion bounty on the heads of the Man of Steel and his “partner in crime,” Batman. Heroes and villains alike launch a relentless pursuit of Superman and Batman, who must unite — and recruit help — to stave off the action-packed onslaught, stop the asteroid, and uncover Luthor’s devious plot to take command of far more than North America.

The voices will be familiar to fans. Superman is played by Tim Daly (Superman: The Animated Series), Batman by Kevin Conroy (Batman: The Animated Series), and Lex Luthor by Clancy Brown.

Any animated Batman with Kevin Conroy voicing him will bring a smile to my face, and I did enjoy ‘Public Enemies’ well enough.

Is it too much to hope for that we could see an animated film for ‘Superman/Batman: Supergirl’ next?

Does anyone have any knowledge on what is the next DC Universe animated film? I haven’t heard what’s on tap after Public Enemies.

We haven’t seen either GL or Superman/Batman yet, and you want to know what’s next beyond that? Geez, patience! :)

I hope it’s the long-promised Teen Titans one, myself. Just because I like teams and I would like to see more female heroes.

 
Argo Plummer writes:  

Patience has never been one of my virtues. I may actually be virtue-less. I just found it interesting that they announce an in-depth look at the next movie but didn’t mention what it is.

Teen Titans would be great, for so many reasons.

Actually I’m a bit curious to know what the next movie is too. Since it says In your writeup that one of the features for PE is a sneak peek at the next movie. I’d like TT or Lsh but I’m betting on a Flash one for some reason.

It was highly speculated and as far as Batman on Film reports, that the next dc animated movie after S/B public enemies is Justice League, Crisis on Two Earths. This project was supposed to bridge the gap between JLA & JLU explaining loose ends and whatnot on why the JL expanded the following season after JLA. They most likely will stick with thier original plot of fighting the crime syndicate. (which was scrapped original and formed into the Justice Lords storyline-make sense now?) Im looking foward to this!!!
