Made sure to add the question mark there. ;)

I did a search and didn't see anything, but does anyone know if maybe MOTP will be getting a special editon DVD (what with TAS getting the full "season" sets, and the new movie coming next year) or rereleased in a keepcase since Warners seems to be doing that nowadays, or even anything special. Or is the current version all we're probably gonna get?

Thanks in advance.

Quite doubtful.

The Batman SEs will be released to coincide with the new film's theater release... I doubt that the animated films are on that slate. I'm sure they're probably only going to get a markdown in price.

This is definately a good one to get. Much better then any of the live incarnations, original included.

I got it for about $7 during the DDD sale.

Yeah this movie was awesome. And they released it to the theaters! I wonder why a follow up never came?

There was two (three counting Batman Beyond) DTV follow up's (tho' not sequel's in the strictest sense).

Batman & Sub-Zero

Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman

I've got a copy ordered from DDD and it's been back-ordered for a while. Shows that it will ship today but I have yet to get an email.

Good, but hardly great.

I've never seen either of those, are they any good? I remember seeing a trailer for Sub Zero years ago on an old WB VHS movie that I had and I thought it looked cool.

Never heard of the second one though...

Sub Zero was pretty bad. They put in a lot of really bad CG, which really stood out and gave the movie a bad look.

Batwomen was pretty good.

Beyond the bad CG work (and it was pretty bad), the story was pretty good. It was no Mask of the Phantasm, but it was probably on par for some of the TV episodes.

And it gets bonus points for featuring my favorite bat villian and furthering his story arc.

Wasn't there a Batman/Superman Animated Movie also? or was it just a mish-mash of TV episodes

You're right. There was a Batman/Superman Movie with original material NOT mish mash tv episodes.

Actually - what you are thinking of Coffee, was a three parter could 'Worlds Finest', it was techinally TV episodes, just like the Justice League 'StarCrossed' is - but when put together WB calls it a full lenght feature film.

Batman & Sub-Zero - Was medicore...Didn't care for it all that much.

Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman - Taken as a Batman film, it's not all that..Taken just as an animated film, it's decent.

Just picked up Mask of the Phantasm last night along with Mystery of the Batwoman.
Can't seem to find Subzero anywhere though.

Any Batman animated movie is great.

The MYSTERY OF THE BATWOMAN was so so. Not great, but still interesting to watch.

I checked around and the Batman Superman Movie is actually a 3-Part episode (World's Finest) from the 2nd Season of Superman. Hopefully WB will start releasing season sets of more of there animated superhero series because I refuse to buy these Best Of releases.

Actually, to make this one even more confusing, 1 part is from Batman's production run and two parts are from Superman's (or the other way around). I wonder if it will cause any confusion when they get to that point in the DVDs. Or maybe they'll just exclude it from either set.

I really really liked this one. It's clever in so many ways. The plot gets derivative toward the end, but I love what they did with the characters.

Highly recommended.

I actually think this is the best representation of batman yet as it explores his dark and reckless sides.

I believe the ROTJ Uncut said Uncut on the top of the front cover...

No, the Return of the Joker DVD in the box set is not uncut.

It's been stated that both Batman: The Animated Series and Superman: The Animated Series will get season sets. No word yet on Justice League, though.

What about the New Batman Adventures which is the same animation style of the Superman TAS?

I would assume those episodes would come in vol. 4 or so of the Batman box sets. There are enough of them that they could be their own set.
