Batman V Superman is soon going to hit theaters, heralding the greatest DC Movie Universe crossover ever. While superhero nerds across the world wait for the Brave And the Bold to make their very first cinematic debut, it’s important to remember about the JLA movie that never was, the brain-child of Mad Max‘s daddy, George Miller…

Cartoon Network is bringing back a duo as well-known as Batman and the Joker themselves. Their new quarter hour animated series from Warner Bros. Animation, titled Justice League Action, will feature iconic DC Entertainment characters- two of them being voiced by Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill. Hamill will return as The Joker to Conroy’s Batman/Bruce Wayne; a character Conroy hasn’t voiced in an ongoing animated series since 2006 with the end of Justice League Unlimited.  This is Cartoon Network’s first DC Comics-based franchise series to be launched since, and most likely spurred on by, the immensely successful Teen Titans Go!

Dawn Of Justice hasn’t even been released and it has already been a point of contention, lots of hype and a torrent of fan speculation. Obviously, Warner Bros have a heck of a lot riding on the spanking new DC Movie Universe that they are going to throw at us and it seems like they are already pulling all the stops. Already, the new Suicide Squad trailer is ready to hit the Interwebs and the Cartoon Network animated seriesDC Films Presents: The Dawn of the Justice League is about to prep us for the next big-budget incarnation of the Justice League of America.

In a concerted effort to get the hype-train rolling into full speed, Warner Bros has gone ahead to reveal their concept art for their new Justice League, as well as to present the full roster and look of Earth’s Bravest and Boldest.

Is There A New Justice League Cartoon In The Works?

JLA

Well, the internet seems to think there is… This morning a picture started making the rounds on Reddit (and we all know that they can’t post something there if it’s not true…) reportedly from an alleged Warner Bros. Animation office of some kind showing what appears to be posters of possible animated productions that the studio may or may not be producing. One of these supposed posters features what could possible be an indication of what could be an all new Justice League cartoon… Begin wild speculation now! (more…)

Guillermo-del-Toro-justice-league-dark

This is another story about why it seems like Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment don’t seem to be entirely sure that they know what they’re doing so far as movies based on DC Comics characters are concerned. Today’s installment of “What are they thinking?” brings us back to the subject of Justice League Dark, the proposed adaptation of DC’s premier supernatural super-team by fan favorite filmmaker Guillermo del Toro. It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about the project, and now we can reveal why: it’s over. Well, at least for del Toro. In other news, Warners is doing some shuffling, certain comic book projects will be fronted by them, and others will be fronted by New Line. You know, the pressing stuff. (more…)

When first announced, Batman vs. Superman seemed like the best idea since sliced bread.  By bringing together Batman and Superman on the big screen for the first time ever, Warner Bros. could basically just sit back on their laurels and count the money as it poured in.  Adding Wonder Woman was a master stroke and while those dollar signs became more clear to the studio heads, the fans’ anticipation for the Justice League launching point became almost a fever.  Like any fever, however, as the source of that fever, i.e. information about the upcoming film, became more and more scarce, public interest has waned a bit.  With the news that Marvel will be sitting out San Diego Comic-Con this year hitting the interwebs earlier today, WB has finally decided to let fans have a peek behind the curtain and has released the official synopsis for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. (more…)

For years we’ve talked about the massive documentary project that was chronicling the production and combustion of the Superman movie that was to be directed by Tim Burton and starring Nicolas Cage. The end result of those efforts, The Death of “Superman Lives”: What Happened?, will be available on VOD this coming July. Along with Jodorowsky’s Dune, which chronicled Alejandro Jodorowsky’s attempt to make a version of Frank Herbert’s Dune in the 70s, there seems to be a trend of making documentaries about movies that never happened. But two films don’t make a trend, so how about three? Straight out of Australia comes word that a new doc is in development, this time the subject is George Miller‘s abandoned Justice League movie Mortal. (more…)
