All 30 DCU Original Animated Movies at Once!

It was mentioned in passing in the promotional release for Batman and Harley Quinn that that movie would be the 30th in the DCU original animated film line. Now, to commemorate that milestone and a decade of releases, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and DC Entertainment have announced a Blu-ray box set of all 30 movies will be available on November 7 as the DC Universe Original Movies: 10th Anniversary Collection. In addition to the movies (listed below), the 32-disc set […]

Batman and Harley Quinn Original Animated Movie Gets Release Date

The next DCU original animated movie, Batman and Harley Quinn, was first teased on the previous release, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract. Now comes box art, trailer, and a release date.

Vixen: The Movie

Now that I’ve watched the Vixen movie, I’ve confirmed that I’d rather have it as one hour-and-fifteen-minute movie than a bunch of short episodes. The animation is functional but not exciting, typical of the DC original projects, but I’ve always liked the character, and I appreciated the chance to learn more about her origin. The movie starts with a standard action opening, with the Flash (Grant Gustin) and Arrow (Stephen Amell) chasing a woman we later find out is Mari […]

DC Super Hero Girls: Intergalactic Games

DC Super Hero Girls: Intergalactic Games is the second animated feature (after Hero of the Year) starring the toy line, and it’s better than the first. I’ve already posted the trailer, but this was even more fun than I expected. That’s in part because there is a LOT going on here, keeping things interesting. And you’ll want to keep the pause button nearby, to catch the cameos and background designs. The movie, a zippy hour and seventeen minutes, begins when […]

Wonder Woman: Commemorative Edition and “What Makes a Wonder Woman”

I’ve now had a chance to watch the Wonder Woman: Commemorative Edition, which came out earlier this week. I remembered why I didn’t care for the movie, but I liked the new featurette, “What Makes a Wonder Woman”. It’s only ten minutes, compared to the 25 minutes each of the other two carry-over special features, but I’m not sure what more they could have said without going into tricky political topics that wouldn’t fit this promotional item. Commentators on-screen include […]

To Go With the Film, Wonder Woman Animated Movie Gets Re-Released

Instead of a new animated movie starring Wonder Woman, to tie into this summer’s live-action film, we’re getting a re-release of the 2009 cartoon origin story called the Wonder Woman Commemorative Edition. It’s already out on digital, and the Blu-ray combo pack (and plain DVD) drop on May 16, with a new cover to look more like the movie’s marketing material. I didn’t care much for the movie the first time around, mostly because I’ve seen umpteen versions of her […]

Teen Titans: The Judas Contract

The Judas Contract is one of the most famous DC superhero storylines ever, from a period when The Teen Titans was one of the most popular books coming out. It was highly ambitious, combining fighting a killer cult, with Brother Blood and his followers questions of trust, as a Titan betrays the team insinuations of sex between Nightwing and Starfire (one of the most shocking and memorable points, given the timeframe) the origin of Deathstroke, a mercenary villain out to […]
