What is the next PG-13 Animated Movie By DC after GREEN LANTERN? AICN Has the Scoop!

Hey folks, Harry here with the scoop on the next animated film scheduled for release in the Fall of 2009 from Warner Animation. This time it is SUPERMAN/BATMAN: PUBLIC ENEMIES based upon the Jeff Loeb and Ed McGuinness comic series. Bruce Timm is the Executive Producer on the film and is currently actually in production!!! Here's the logo and the plot synopsis that I got my grubby hands upon!

SUPERMAN/BATMAN: PUBLIC ENEMIES: United States President Lex Luthor uses the oncoming trajectory of a kryptonite asteroid to frame Superman and declare a $1 billion bounty on the heads of the Man of Steel and his “partner in crime” Batman. Super heroes and super villains alike launch a relentless pursuit of Superman and Batman, who must unite – and recruit super help – to stave off the action-packed onslaught, stop the asteroid, and uncover Luthor’s devious plot to take command of far more than North America.

    The comic was okay, but I'd rather see some other heroes get the Wonder Woman/Green Lantern treatment. Plastic Man is practically tailor made for animation. He should get his own animated film.

  • March 13, 2009, 4:24 p.m. CST

    Probably my favorite

    by brattyben

    story in that series. I also liked the one where Supes and Bats ended up being kings. That would make a good movie.

    logo is weak. from a design standpoint.


    the 'border' is merely a 'chalk' brush set to rounded rectangle. easy peasy. makes me worry about the rest of the 'style'...but timm being involved? i'll give it a look see.

    You mean to say

    by Sick Fixx

    that we're not even getting a live action Green Lantern movie??? What is WRONG with studios these days??? One bad decision after another. Either go all the way or don't go at all! Who the hell wants animated movies these days? Isn't that what Pixar's for? Let Nathan Fillion be Hal Jordan and that's that!

    development hell for DC movies

    by filmfanatic1

    Sick Fixx: Warners has no idea what to do with DC characters anymore; sure, GB is planned, but Warners is STILL dropping the ball on this. At the very least, Bruce Timm is keeping the DC universe going Warners should rip open development hell and give him the live-action films ONCE AND FOR ALL!

  • March 13, 2009, 4:41 p.m. CST

    so this is the first arc from Superman/Batman...

    by thecomedian

    ...from like 6 years ago. Meh. President Luthor is old hat. I'd prefer they make a viral Luthor comedy series with Jon Hamm. He's a better Lex than Kevin Space and Michael Rosenblum.

    by SomaShine

    Like is there really anything Batman can do that Superman can't?

  • March 13, 2009, 5:23 p.m. CST

    Also hope they link it to the real DCAU

    by blindambition238

    Lex Luthor somehow reappears after the events of JLU Destroyer, and is hailed a hero by the world becuase they remember him taking out Darkseid with the anti-life equation. He acts like he's a reformed humanitarian and reopens a successful Presidental bid.

  • March 13, 2009, 5:25 p.m. CST


    by Geekgasm

    This doesn't actually sound too interesting to me. And Luthor-as-president is so Bush Administration. Unless they're going to portray Luthor as a liberal black dude voiced by Phil Lamarr.

    We need more live action films

    by liljuniorbrown

    Superman:Doomsday kind of sucked. They should do a Sinestro Corps animated film next and for the love of God can we please get Supermax? If that film premise was done correctly it would be sooo bad ass.

    When the hell is The Judas Project coming Out?

    by Grimmjow Jeagerjaques

    For those who don't know, The Judas Project is the Teen Titans story about Terra's induction and ultimate betrayal of the team. It was also one of the first direct to DVD flicks WB announced when they started this little endeavor. It's been years and no word's come out. The Judas Project was the flick I was most looking forward too (I know they did this story on the Teen Titans animated series, but I hated that show so that doesn't help me). What the hell man?

    by InfiniteRegress

    ....I'd much rather see some of DC's supernatural characters get the DCAU treatment. Swamp Thing, Sandman I or II, John Constantine, Doctor Fate. That said, I enjoyed Wonder Woman far more than I imagined I would. DC are on a winning streak with these things, here's hoping it continues.

    DC Animated

    by R L S

    I've liked all of them so far (New Frontier being my fave, and Gotham Knight being my least fave), but "Public Enemies"? Really? %The story from the comics was medicore at best, and I get an easy feeling that if they try to ape McGuiness' style in animation it will look HORRIBLE.

  • March 13, 2009, 6:31 p.m. CST

    It should be 'uneasy' feeling...

    Batman can sustain a decent (live action) movie franchise.

  • March 13, 2009, 6:35 p.m. CST

    The Wonder Woman DVD is great...

    by tj donkey show

    I think it's on par with New Frontier. I thought that DC was working on a R rated Lobo: The Last Czarnian. What ever happened to that?

  • March 13, 2009, 7:06 p.m. CST

    I like these but wish they were longer.

    by slimballs

    75 minutes is to short for these animated movies. Wonder Women was going along at a great pace for an hour and then just rushed right into the final battle. It almost ruined a very enjoyable experience. They should start making them about 90 minutes long

  • March 13, 2009, 7:53 p.m. CST

    Some of these suck, some are OK

    by FullBloodedScot

    But compared to the 90's Batman cartoon, and the Superman cartoon from that time, these cartoon movies from the last few years have been of varying quality. The recent Batman series really sucked, and c'mon, the "Batwave" instead of the Bat signal? I do like Brave and the Bold though. Old school cheese at it's best. They should get the focus back on live action. They should keep in mind that their last live movie was popular and "acclaimed" because a guy famous for playing a gay cowboy, and was doing a bad Brandon Lee impression from "The Crow," died after production.

  • March 13, 2009, 7:53 p.m. CST


    by Emperor_was_a_jerk

    These are kids movies you nerds. They make them to make money. Not to satisfy your nerdly obsessions. This goes with all comic book movies too.

    I'm definitely looking forward to this

    by qweruiop

    I thought the very first Superman/Batman arc "Public Enemies" was outstanding. I especially enjoyed the intro that paralleled their origins, and having Lex Luthor as their main adversary was brilliant. You see Lex is THE DC VILLAIN, the only one who can give a headache to both Superman and Batman. Joker may have the more pizazz, but he's mainly a city-wide villain, while Lex is a global threat. Great stuff. That's why he was so nicely used in this storyline, and also in the DK2 story too.

    Warners and DC need to step up to the plate MARVEL is screwing u

    by Monkey_King

    especially when casting, recasting or rebooting films and ruining comics continuity by casting the likes of Samuel L Jackson as a 'Black' Nick Fury, replacing Terrence Howard with Don Cheadle and rebooting Fantastic Four after only 2 films(same goes for INCREDIBLE HULK which was the most decent reboot, but everyone still remembers the Ang Lee film). DC should jump at the chance to bury MARVEL and make the fans happy by staying true to continuity and making films for the fans and by fans. Bring on SUPER MAX aka Green Arrow.

  • March 13, 2009, 9:04 p.m. CST

    Jon Hamm for Superman!

    by ZorroZ

    For the live action film that is.

    by ZorroZ

    Hamm too old for you? Then Welling is my favorite choice for big screen Superman.

  • March 13, 2009, 9:08 p.m. CST

    Henry Cavill for Superman!

    by ZorroZ

    He would be acceptable as well.But his extreme widow's peak will need a good hairpiece.

    FullBloodedScot: you dont get it

    by Emperor_was_a_jerk

    Never saw MILK. Have no interest in it. My favorite movies include Gremlins, Indiana Jones movies, Star Wars movies, E.T., love cartoons, love toys... all that stuff. My point was, and what is often my point here on these talkbacks (so no, I am not a "troll" since I have posted quite a few times before), is that these are movies made for kids. The make money from targeting them at kids and there is nothing wrong with that. Just like people here often complain about things like The Clone Wars (for kids), people complaining that DC should be making a Green Lantern movie, or that these cartoons are too short or that they should not be doing another Batman/Superman cartoon should temper their opinion that these are indeed kids movies. My 7 year old son didn't really like the Dr. Strange Marvel cartoon movie, but dug the HULK one. So DC is smart in making KIDS MOVIES for KIDS. Thanks for your comment though which, ironically, was rather troll-like itself.

  • March 13, 2009, 9:22 p.m. CST

    Hurry up and reboot Superman!

    by ZorroZ

    The development hell most DC movies are in is pissing me off. Wonder Woman's writers just got booted (again). The Shazam/Capt Marvel movie has thrown out it's script too. Supermax/Green Arrow is rumored stalled and dead too.

  • March 13, 2009, 9:29 p.m. CST

    That is a seriously ugly cheap unexciting logo

    by ZorroZ

    for this animated movie. I hope the artwork is tons better. I have faith in Bruce Timm. However the character design in Superman:Doomsday was painful, so Timm doesn't have that in his favor.

    I love public enemies

    by Jesiah

    The way the beginning couple of pages compare how similar Batman and Superman's origins are yet are on the opposite ends of the spectrum of each other. And seeing that future Superman wearing the kingdom come Superman emblem is always a treat. That Superman kingdom come symbol is so simple yet futuristic. Wish they would change the real Superman's to that. And they should do a video on the upcoming morrison & quitley Batman & Robin comic coming out. I've got a pretty good suspicion who the "new" Batman & Robin are, and seeing it animated not long after the comic coming out would be sweet.

    That started off great with the paralleling of their origins and Bruce's car breaking down and Clark seeing it there but as it went on it got weaker, ending with the lame half bat half super robot.

    by maelstrom_ZERO

    Superman/Batman wasn't exactly some of the best work I've read. The only high point for that entire series was seeing Michael Turner do a two-page spread of Supergirl in a tight outfit fighting Amazons in a training session. That, and seeing Superman punch Supergirl in the face with a green-K ring. Great stuff.

  • March 14, 2009, 10:29 a.m. CST

    Also: The Question

    by maelstrom_ZERO

    <p>If DC's looking for new character properties to develop, then instead of focusing on the Big Guns (GL/Supes/WW/Batman) why don't they focus on someone smaller? Like, for instance, the Question?</p> <p>The Question has to be one of the more compelling heroes in the DC Universe. Surprisingly, he's not broken. All you have is a regular guy, sans the Batman-like trauma, forced to re-evaluate his entire life because he died once and was brought back. Armed with nothing but a Zen philosophy and an insatiable curiosity, he tries to do his part to save his city, dying a little bit every day because of it. It's great stuff; everyone should read the O'Neil/Cowan run on the character.</p>

    That's the story they are going with?

    by AnakinsDiapers

    That first Storyline of Superman/Batman was the first time i started to realize Jeph Loeb wasn't as good as he was being made out to be. Every issue just got more and more ridiculous. Lets see. A giant asteriod of kryptonite is headed for earth. The writer makes it a point to focus on the other superhero populace being POWERLESS to do anything about it. internet goes batshit on how stupid that is considering Green Lantern is available. A month later he explains in the comic the asteriod is giving off radiation to strong for green Lantern to handle. let me say this again...RADIATION FROM A SPACE ROCK was too strong for the space cop to get near...WTF! Ridiculous shit like that was all over that book. I had enough when Batman and Superman beat up Captain Marvel and Hawkman OFF PANEL and took their clothes as disguises. S & B beat them up and took their panel. Issue 5 was my last issue.

    You'd think at some point...

    by REVENGE_of_FETT

    people would start taking Superman's word over Lex Luthor's. Just sayin'.

    Maelstrom_ZERO: Sadly, The Question is indeed "broken"

    by SpyGuy

    In fact, he's bleedin' demised after they killed Vic Sage off in the series 52 and replaced him with Renee Montoya as The Hispanic Lesbian Question. <p>But with animation, that asinine attempt at "diversity" could be corrected somewhat by featuring Vic Sage in a Question DVD. Just be sure to cast Jeffrey Combs again. He was brilliant on JUSTICE LEAGUE UNLIMITED.</p>

    KD has way too much "black" in his voice. Wouldn't work. The Dark Knight aint quite THAT dark.

    I disagree. --The logo is fine, from a design standpoint.

    by JDanielP

    I'm sure the logo will look just fine, stamped above or below whatever artwork they'll have for the cover. --Looking forward to this one.

    I'd love to see this but man

    by IndyCollector

    Branch out DC. Is a Flash or Hawkman animated movie that hard? You're much more than Batman and Superman.

    They should just make an animated Dark Knight Returns.

    by The_joker

    Of course that would probably suck too.

    Am I the only who thought the Superman: Doomsday cartoon...

    by rbatty024

    was actually better than the comics. The story was far more compelling. It certainly wasn't the height of DC's direct to video films, but it had a handful of great moments.

  • March 14, 2009, 4:16 p.m. CST

    someone mentioned it an earlier post

    by juice willis

    but a Pixar animated Green Lantern would have the potential to revolutionize the treatment/approach to comic book films. badassery incarnate.

    Superman Vs. Batman plot synopsis

    by Snookeroo

    Superman -- faster than a speeding bullet, rams his Kryptonian fist through mere mortal Bruce Wayne's aka "Batman" cranium. Although the Dark Knight Detective is honed to the height of human perfection, and possessing amazing reflexes, he is -- still -- only human; consequently his entire head is exploded by the man of Steel's blow in a shower of blood and gore.<br><br>Roll credits.

  • March 14, 2009, 4:19 p.m. CST

    And yes, Superman Doomsday was better than the comic

    by Snookeroo

    But that was a pretty low bar.

    by tranpkp1

    doomsday was aweful. hated it. wonder what the look will be and voices. WW was actually pretty good but the previous flix sucked.

    I'd MUCH rather see a Birds of Prey DVD..

    Based on the first Gail Simone storyarc and drawn to resemble Ed Benes artwork. Hubba Hubba!!!

    Batman has no weaknesses?

    by The Nothing

    Somebody said earlier that Batman has no weakness, so he's better than Superman. No weaknesses? He's human, he has all the weaknesses of an average person. Superman? Kryptonite, magic, and Doomsday. So, that's what? A few thousand to three? In a real fight between the two, even if Batman had kryptonite, Superman wins. All he has to do is fly out of Batman's reach and fry his ass with heat vision, freeze him with his breath, or fly in so fast that Batman can't reacted as the force of Superman's body impacting his cause him to explode into a fine pinkish mist.

    To the idiots, Loeb gets that comics can be...

    by crankyoldguy

    FUN!. They can work for kids and adults and some of the Superman-Batman story arcs have done just that. Johns gets this too. It all doesn't have to be Brubaker dire and Millar really dark and f-d up. Or Morrison bizarre. And Public Enemies was dire, yet fun at the same time. Maybe when some of you 20/30-something taking it all.everything too seriously morons REALLY grow up, you'll find your inner kid/early teen again by your 40s or 50s. Good luck with that.

  • March 15, 2009, 11:42 a.m. CST

    and Fillion as Hall Jordan now...the kid from "Seeker"

    as Hal Jordan "then."

    Still no TEEN TITANS or NEW GODS animated movies?

    by Drath

    They put the Teen Titan movie on hold for Batman Gotham Knight which sucked but I accepted the choice. Then a good Wonder Woman movie came along. It had great pacing and delivered (I don't fucking care if Etta Candy wasn't fat enough, the movie rocked). And Green Lantern I welcome because it's again not another Batman or Superman title. But already we're back to these two played out spotlight hogs? Really tired of this stuff.

    Jeph Loeb....

    by Jobacca

    is a good writer who understands the charcters quite well....HOWEVER,he cant write a decent story to save his life. And by that I mean a story with a beginning,middle,and an end. HUSH has one of the most dreadful scooby-doo endings in the history of comics. As do the endings of Long Halloween and Dark Victory and Superman/Batman and everything else Loeb has ever written...

    "Public Enemies" sucked!!! The Kryptonite storyline "K" would be

    by Regicidal_Maniac

    I liked Superman Doomsday and I think that the K-metal storyline would be a fitting follow up. I'd rather see them adapt the "Supergirl" arc or "Up Up & Away" or "Last Son". Still I guess this means I get to buy another Power-armor Luthor figure, so it's not all bad.

    i would like to see the old hawkworld comic (from maybe the early 90 or late 80's) made into an animated movie or series.
