I had a thread on this:

I might rank Batwoman/Return of the Joker higher and TDKR a bit lower now. Still have to check out Flashpoint.

I don't know the story itself is fairly short, but it seems like there's enough going on in it that seventy-five minutes might be cutting it close.

Gods and Monsters has already taking the PG-13 to it's edge. It definitely isn't for kids. The Killing Joke should be about on par or at least I hope it is.

I thought Court of Owls was also pushing it with content. I guess they believe the adult market wouldn't buy them if they weren't edgy.

re: DC Animated Universe Films

Whatever happen to the BATMAN 66 animated movie that West and Ward annouce last spring?

Killing Joke is ok. I like it more for the art then the story.
If they wanted to animated an Alan Moore BATMAN story I suggest the CLAYFACE-PRESTON PAYNE story from a BATMAN ANNUAL. Combine it the Len Wein & Marshall Rogers origin story for Payne and it would make a nice movie.

The film based on Batman 66 comes out next year to coincide with the fiftieth anniversary of the series.

I would really like to see animation based on their work. The short with Dr. Strange that Bruce Timm did last year would be a good template for a feature length movie.

Gods and Monsters is amazing, by the way. So great to have Timm, Burnett, and Liu back in the fray.

It looks different but with Timm's involvement in it I'll buy it day one. Really like the more traditional art it has judging by the screen grabs in your review.

Love that short. Is it available to own in any form or is it only streamable?

Yeah that short needs to find its way to Blu-ray as an extra for one of these DCAU films. The Batman Beyond one is good too.

It's definitely the most ambitious animated DC movie in many years. I think some will be disappointed to find out it's an entirely original Elseworlds story, though the deep nods to so many disparate DC Universe elements will definitely pay dividends with DC fans. Timm and Burnett did a great job coming up with an interesting alternative to the well-known heroes, through a mirror darkly.

Gods and Monsters is the most polished animated DC film we've seen in quite a while. Even long-time comic readers will have trouble guessing where the plot goes.

re: DC Animated Universe Films

I'm still trying to figure out how these book+movie sets will work. Maybe they're really thick digibooks ... ? Since I don't own any of the "Batman: Black and White" graphic novels, I'll at least be picking up that one just to check this idea out. Might grab Wonder Woman, too.

The cover artwork for these reflects the current printing of the included book. Here they all are:

re: DC Animated Universe Films

Yeah, that was mentioned back in post # 68. Not a bad deal if you haven't been picking up the movies as they come out. I'm almost a little surprised they didn't go back and release steelbook versions of the ones before Target started doing them, since that seems like it's going to be a thing going forward.

Also, here is the box set with all of them

re: DC Animated Universe Films

I would definitely have bought these if I didn't already have all the movies.

It's strange that Warner's didn't at least include a copy of their motion comic of Batman Black & White. It would have been a good way to maybe move some or make others aware of their archive selection of motion comics since it is only available there: http://www.wbshop.com/product/batman...+1000179844.do

Note sure how enjoyable those could be given the smaller size compared to the size of the original books.

Much rather have steelbooks to complete my DC collection.

That is a topic of debate for Gods & Monsters. We'll see tomorrow for sure obviously. But there has been a picture running around with somebody who has the steelbook and not to mention that the ad, the Blu-ray certainly looks "steelbook shaped". However, if you go to the Target site or look at the ad, there is no mention of steelbook anywhere.

I've busted my ass getting a steelbook for these DC Animated films especially the Batman ones but its been ridiculous. I pre-ordered Batman vs Robin last time just so I would get it and I would have done the same thing on this one had it not been for what I described above. As such, I certainly want this one, and just cross my fingers like heck that one of the three stores I go to tomorrow will have it here in Houston(preferably the first one obviously). But its far from a lock.

re: DC Animated Universe Films

If you search ebay there are already multiple entries for the steelbook, many with pictures of the actual item. But like the other Target exclusives of these DC titles, get there quick or they few they have are likely to be gone!

It is odd that Target isn't listing the steelbook version the same way they have in the past for these DC titles. Possibly to remove any chance that somebody orders the steelbook online and they pull/ship the standard version.

Yes, there is a Target steelbook. There is also a general deluxe edition that contains a Wonder Woman action figure.
