Five new DC Showcase animated shorts announced, including Sgt. Rock and Batman: Death in the Family

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation has announced five new DC Showcase animated shorts will roll out between 2019 and 2020 in Sgt. Rock, Adam Strange, Death, The Phantom Stranger and Batman: Death in the Family.

While details on Batman: Death in the Family are being kept under wraps for the time being (presumably its a part-adaptation of – or at least inspired by – Jim Starlin’s classic 1988 story arc), we do have official synopses and details for the other four shorts:

Sgt. Rock is executive produced and directed by Bruce Timm (Batman: The Animated Series) from a script by award-winning comics writers Louise Simonson & Walter Simonson and Tim Sheridan (Reign of the Supermen). The original tale finds battle-weary Sgt. Rock thinking he has seen everything that World War II can dish out. But he is in for the surprise of his life when he is assigned to lead a company

DC Showcase Returns with Sgt. Rock, Adam Strange, Death, Phantom Stranger

  • Comicmix
Burbank, CA – Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, in partnership with DC, are currently in production on five new DC Showcase animated shorts for release in 2019-2020.

Inspired by characters and stories from DC’s robust portfolio, the all-new series of shorts will be included on upcoming DC Universe Movies releases, with exception of an innovative Batman: Death in the Family long-form animated short, which will anchor a compilation set for distribution in late 2020.

Each of the five shorts – entitled Sgt. Rock, Adam Strange, Death, The Phantom Stranger and Batman: Death in the Family – opens with a new, live-action branding sequence that features a few Easter Eggs specially added for observant fans.

Sgt. Rock is executive produced and directed by Bruce Timm (Batman: The Animated Series) from a script by award-winning comics writers Louise Simonson & Walter Simonson and Tim Sheridan (Reign of the Supermen). The original tale finds battle-weary Sgt.

Batman: Death In The Family To Anchor New DC Showcase Animated Shorts

If you’ve been collecting DC animated movies for some time, then you probably remember the Showcase shorts from nearly a decade ago. For those unfamiliar, these truncated stories allowed for the likes of the Spectre, Jonah Hex and Green Arrow to shine alongside whichever feature film they complemented. Not long after, each were compiled on a separate home video release, Superman/Shazam: The Return of Black Adam, which was considerably meatier than its brethren but still technically a short itself.

Now, after a lengthy hibernation, the concept has been resurrected. Soon enough, cult favorites such as Sgt. Rock, Adam Strange, Death and the Phantom Stranger will stand next to whatever corresponding animated flicks Warner Bros. choose. And much like before, each of those will join a lengthier short in the form of Batman: Death in the Family in one handsome Blu-ray package later on in 2020.

First Action-Packed Clip From Batman Vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Debuts

If you were to ask me, 2019 is shaping up to be one heck of a year for DC animation. Already, we’ve been impressed by Reign of the Supermen and Justice League vs. The Fatal Five, with the long awaited Batman: Hush adaptation also set to arrive sometime this summer. Wonder Woman: Bloodlines, meanwhile, is scheduled for release in the fall, but I wouldn’t doubt if that gets pushed to 2020 so that it can coincide with Wonder Woman 1984‘s theatrical debut.

Much to my delight, a fifth offering was worked into the middle of that slate, as Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has been confirmed for a late spring release. Not only is this making a fantasy many of us have been pondering since childhood a reality, but it should also satisfy fans of the comic book crossover which served as inspiration.

First Look And Full Voice Cast Revealed For Batman: Hush

The next DC Universe Original Movie will be an animated adaptation of classic 2000s graphic novel Hush, originally from writer Jeph Loeb and artist Jim Lee. The story sees the Dark Knight confronting a mysterious new villain called Hush and features a number of friends and foes from the DC mythos. It’s ripe to be brought to the screen, then, and now Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has released a first look at the movie.

Courtesy of IGN comes our first image from Batman: Hush, depicting the Caped Crusader hurling a Batarang at an unseen assailant. Along with the pic, we also have the casting information for the film and can confirm that Jason O’Mara, a veteran of these movies by now, is returning to voice Bruce Wayne.

Meanwhile, Once Upon a Time‘s Jennifer Morrison makes her debut as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, and fans of the recent Death

First Batman Vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Trailer Debuts Online

2019 is shaping up to be an amazing year for DC animation. Already, we’ve seen the impressive Reign of the Supermen, and if that weren’t enough, Justice League vs. The Fatal Five arrives in April, with the long awaited Batman: Hush adaptation also set to debut at some point this summer. Wonder Woman: Bloodlines, meanwhile, is scheduled for release in the fall and finally, we have the cherry on top of it all in the form of Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

The Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic book miniseries written by James Tynion IV and illustrated by Freddie Williams II is acting as the source material for this effort and given that every character was penned perfectly, not to mention the narrative itself being top notch as well, our hopes are certainly high for this one.

And now, we have the very first trailer for the trans-dimensional crossover,

Titans casts Joshua Orpin as Superboy for season 2

DC’s Universe’s Titans has found its Teen of Steel for its upcoming second season. The series has cast Joshua Orpin (The Black Mysteries: Ghost Stories) as Conner Kent, better known as Superboy, and he is set to play a key role in the season.

Titans‘ character description for Superboy reads “Superboy, aka Conner Kent, is the angsty teenager of steel searching for purpose and the truth about his past. While looking for answers, he crashes into the world of the Titans where he finds an unlikely home and surrogate family as well as revelations that carry more complications than he ever bargained for.”

While Superboy has existed since the mid-1940s as a teenage Clark Kent living in Smallville, this iteration of the character will be based upon the one created by writer Karl Kessell and artist Tom Grummett during the Reign of the Supermen storyline after The Death of Superman.

Titans Season 2 Casts Superboy

Mike Cecchini Feb 27, 2019

Joshua Orpin will play Conner Kent when Superboy is introduced in Titans Season 2 on DC Universe.

The Titans TV series on the DC Universe streaming service is already loaded with DC superheroes. It's as classic a lineup of the team as you can expect, reminiscent of the comics, the beloved Teen Titans animated series, and arguably the best Titans-related thing to ever hit the screen, Young Justice. A couple of characters from that Young Justice era are still notably absent (including Kid Flash), but one of them made a cameo at the end of the season one finale: Superboy

No, not young Superman. Instead, we're talking about Conner Kent, a clone made from DNA from Superman and...another donor, whose identity is a massive spoiler if you don't already know. This Superboy first appeared in the classic Reign of the Supermen story, as one of the

First Trailer for ‘Justice League vs. The Fatal Five’ Teases the Next DC Animated Movie

Though initially teased in a bonus feature on the Reign of the Supermen home video release, the best look at Justice League vs. The Fatal Five is now here thanks to the first official trailer.

‘Reign of the Supermen’ Review: A Worthy Follow-Up to DC’s ‘The Death of Superman’

In The Death of Superman, the inevitable happened. That's normally where adaptations of the acclaimed DC Comics' storyline end, but Warner Bros. Home Entertainment's latest animated release, Reign of the Supermen, finally brings the story's continuation to a screen near you. While you can read my review of the first film here, I'm happy to say that the sequel carries on with the same quality that preceded it. Beautifully animated, compellingly told, and expertly acted, and with a thumping good soundtrack and effects work to boot, Reign of the Supermen is worthy of the source material. …

Review: Reign of the Supermen

  • Comicmix
One of the smarter moves the DC Animated Universe did was begin to build interlocking storylines, characters, and voice artists. This has allowed them to build off previous events and let the status quo consistently evolve rather than feel static. (Amazing animation can do this far more easily and effectively than the film division.)

As a result, we are now emotionally invested in this incarnation of the classic heroes and villains, which allowed the redone Death of Superman film in 2018 work so well. This also paved the way for the sequel, Reign of the Supermen, which has received quite the promotional bump.

Out on home video today from Warner Home Entertainment, the 87-minute adventure rarely lets up and is more satisfying than previous installments. While it takes the name from the 1993 storylines that followed the Man of Steel’s death, it bears little resemblance. This is wholly set in the

Pop! Pop! Ep. 32 – Glass Review

Pop! Pop! is back! We definitely didn’t miss two weeks! And even if we did, it wasn’t two months, so you’re welcome!

And of course, the Super Bowl is coming up, so the championship games are (probably overly) talked about.

Reign of the Supermen Review

  • HeyUGuys
Back in the early 90s Superman was on the decline. Comic sales were down and the DC writers felt the iconic hero was being taken for granted.

What came next has either been credited for revitalising the character, or dismissed as a publicity stunt. Either way, The Death of Superman was a huge moment in the history of the Man Of Steel, and proved to be such a pivotal plot point that it’s been retold in a variety of ways, most recently with last year’s animated direct-to-video release, Death Of Superman.

This year we get the sequel. While the comic book arc involved three chapters – Death of Superman, Funeral For A Friend and Reign of the Supermen – the films have condensed the story into two parts.

With Superman’s demise coming at the hands of vicious killing machine Doomsday, Metropolis is in mourning, and the world slowly recovering

Reign of the Supermen Review: DC Animated Movie Gets Classic Superman Story Right

The death and return of Superman saga continues with Reign of the Supermen, the latest DC Universe animated movie.

Six months after the Last Son of Krypton was killed by Doomsday, it’s reigning supermen in Metropolis. And, based on the rise of earthly, and otherworldly, threats, the planet is in need of a new champion. But which of the four figures claiming to be Superman is the real deal Man of Steel? That’s the premise for the new animated DC Universe animated movie Reign of the Superman, a sequel to last summer’s entertaining The Death of Superman. Available now on digital, and tomorrow on DVD/Blu-ray, the film is the latest to create a pastiche of new and classic DC Comics stories within the New 52 continuity.

Directed by Sam Liu with a script by Jim Krieg, and Tim Sheridan, Reign of the Supermen succeeds in delivering a
