The next DC Animated movie that is coming out is Batman and Harley Quinn where the Caped Crusader is forced to team-up with Harley to stop the villainous Poison Ivy. While the film is slated to come out on Blu-Ray/DVD this fall, if you are going to San Diego Comic-Con next month, you will have a chance to catch it early.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment announced today that Batman and Harley Quinn is set to have a world premiere at this year’s Comic-Con. Fans will have a chance to see the movie on Friday, July 21 in Ballroom 20. After the screening, a panel will take place with several cast members as well as the filmmakers for a Q&A.
“In Batman and Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy and Jason Woodrue (a.k.a. The Floronic Man) embark on an ecological quest to save the planet – and, unfortunately, eliminate most of humankind along the way. To save humanity, Batman and Nightwing are forced to enlist Harley Quinn to catch Poison Ivy, Harley’s BFF and frequent partner-in-crime. But Batman’s patience is put to the test by the unpredictable and untrustworthy Harley during the twists and turns the reluctant companions face during their bumpy road trip. The result is a thrill ride of action, adventure and comedy no Batman fan has seen before.”
Batman and Harley Quinn, starring Kevin Conroy as Bruce Wayne a.k.a. Batman, Melissa Rauch as Harley Quinn, Loren Lester as Dick Grayson a.k.a. Nightwing, Paget Brewster as Poison Ivy and Kevin Michael Richardson as Jason Woodrue a.k.a. The Floronic Man, is set to come out on Digital HD on August 15, while it will be available on Blu-Ray and DVD on August 29.
San Diego Comic-Con will be taking place from Thursday, July 20 – Sunday, July 23, with Preview Night on Wednesday, July 19. For more information about Comic-Con, visit their official website at http://www.comic-con.org/cci
The Top 10 Episodes Of ‘Justice League’
The early reactions to Wonder Woman are in, and everyone loves it! Twitter erupted with praise for the first-ever female led super hero film. This early praise bodes well for the future of the once murky DCEU. But if Wonder Woman is successful, it means that the next film in DC’s slate has even more work cut out for it. Justice League will be the ultimate test of whether the DCEU can truly handle an ensemble super hero cast.
It’s always difficult to juggle a couple of heroes on screen, let alone six or seven. Hopefully director Zack Snyder did his research in determining how to get the formula right. Assuming he did, he almost certainly watched Cartoon Network’s Justice League. As the final series in Bruce Timm’s DC Animated Universe, Justice League brought together Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Martian Manhunter, Green Lantern and Hawkgirl for the first time on screen. The series was bold, dramatic and inventive. It placed character first, often only focusing on only 3 or 4 heroes per episode in order to give them maximum character weight.
The formula worked amazingly, giving us some of the greatest storytelling ever seen in television animation. It also led to acclaimed spin-off Justice League Unlimited, which added dozens of heroes to the roster. The spin-off series was much more serialized, improving the storytelling but losing some of the great character focus. That’s why it’s the original Justice League series that provides the best example of how to tell a story with seven DC characters. It’s the example we hope Zack Snyder looked to for inspiration.
Before we look to the future of the Justice League, let’s have a look back at the past. These are the top 10 episodes of Justice League. Click next to get started!
