FYI, Justice League vs The Fatal Five is now on DC Universe for those who subscribe to it.

I'll probably check it out later today.

I feel like they used to be better. Now theyíre very hit and miss with me. I used to grab them day one, but havenít even gotten the last few or so. I probably will grab the Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles release when it hit though.

This one has gotten exceptionally good reviews in my geeky animation circles. Iím really looking forward to it, and I wouldíve bought it day one if the Ultra HD Blu-ray price was a little lower. Iíve gotten too spoiled to getting Ďem on eBay shortly after release for $10-$12.

Re: DC Animated Universe Films

This was pretty good. Especially liked use of the 90s Superman animated theme for supes and the return to the classic costume. Animation in places was great and never a problem. 7/10

Have gotten all the steels from the last 3 years. Was on the fence about having this be my breaking point but decided against it since Iíll definitely want Hush, the tmnt one, Wonder Woman, and the rumored red son for sure. Glad I put off ending my collection. This was worth it.

I'm in the same boat, but have recently skipped the ones I have zero interest in (the two Adam West movies and that anime ninja one). Maybe it's time to go back in my collection and sell off the ones I never watched more than once. I'm sure a few of the rare ones would be worth the leg work. And at least I still have the digital versions if I want to revisit.

Re: DC Animated Universe Films

The last one I picked up was Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay. I think Iíve only missed the two Superman releases since then. I was sort of waiting for the combined release for those two though. I havenít gotten out yet this week for this latest Justice League release.

Re: DC Animated Universe Films

I missed out on a ton of steelbooks so I'm no longer inclined to get them all, but I love the Legion so picked up this one. However I'll probably never open it because I can just watch it on DC Universe. It's a sickness.

Re: DC Animated Universe Films

I got all of them, including all steelbooks and all of the ones that came in with a figure.

As for JL vs FF, I liked it, but it felt like a violent episode of JLU and not a movie itself. By the way, I read online that this film and the Batman and Harley one are considered part of the DCAU/Timmverse

I was just going to ask a similar question, how "adult" is this movie? Like is it absolutely not appropriate for kids like the Suicide Squad one?

There are several bloody murders in the movie and the new Green Lantern says shit at least once. There was another scene where one of the Fatal Five said something close to fuck, but changed the word to something else to not make it so obvious.

The film looks like a spiritual successor to JLU but it has its share of continuity problems to make it part of that world. Some incongruities and a death in the spoiler below

Spoiler:

-The movie makes no mention of Supergirl in the future, where she stayed in the episode Far From Home of JLU, which is included on the BD release
- Hal Jordan is shown as a prominent Green Lantern. In the DCAU, Hal Jordan was only a GL from an alternate universe, not part of the world where these heroes live.
- Three of the Fatal Five have a different design than in the episode Far From Home.
- I hated that Kilowog was killed.
- Arkham Asylum looks completely different that any incarnation of the building in the DCAU



If there is something that this movie shows is that there are definitely hundreds of stories that can still be told in the DCAU. If the DC Universe streaming service really wants to boost their subs, then return to making new episodes of JLU. I believe that everyone that still alive from that series is willing to come back and do more.

Also, saw the preview of Batman: Hush. I don't know how the hell they are going to fit all that story with all those characters in 90 minutes. If there's a story that deserves at least 2 parts, is this one.

That would be incredible. Heck, even a continuation of Justice League Action free from the whims of Cartoon Network would be awesome, though they're clearly going for an older demographic.

There was a time when I thought they were trying for a kind of merged universe with Young Justice just because the character designs were so similar, but it seems like they're content just having all of these be loosely connected.

Is Hush only a one parter? I swore it was two. I know The Long Halloween is getting two parts.

Only one film announced, not a 2-parter, so far.

I thought so too. My impression was that Young Justice was connected to the DC shorts included in some of these releases, Under the Red Hood, Doom, and everything after Flashpoint with the exception of Batman & Harley, JL vs FF, the Killing Joke and Gotham by Gaslight. The animation was similar, share many voice actors and it kinda made a connecting story between everything. Seeing how succesful the MCU is, I wonder why DC hasn't done the same at least in their animation, but then I remember that they are owned by WB, who can't still figure out how to do a good Superman movie in the 21st century.

Iíll end up watching it because of the Legion angle. Kinda annoying that they use the Justice League and brand it as such, but I get how marketing works.

Re: DC Animated Universe Films

Is that in the ad, or is it 15 bucks because it shares an SKU with the normal version and the normal version is that price? Because I don't think I've seen the steelbook in stores since the launch date (though who knows what's hiding in the stockroom... the employees sure don't).

Obligatory UHD and BD review for Justice League Vs. The Fatal Five. It's a nice steelbook.

It's online too and should show local store availability

Thanks! I rarely do this but for a 7 buck difference might as well return and rebuy, or see if they'll match.

Re: DC Animated Universe Films

Steelbook is "in stock" at my local Target. However, after looking at the same shelf I just looked at, the employee determined it could not be found despite three showing up in inventory. Like he didn't even pretend to look in the back or anything.

Well played, Target. You get to keep my 7 bucks.
