Top 7 DC Animated Movies That Should Be Made Next

Previous1 of 8

Blackest Night DC ComicsThe DC Animated movies have always been such a treat to watch. Sure, some of them are corny, but the animation is consistently top notch. Bruce Timm set the entire DC animated block in motion back in the day, but now the department has expanded far beyond anyone’s initial expectations. There are so many amazing stories out there in the DC Universe that deserve the animated treatment. Not only are there a plethora of amazing characters fans haven’t seen animated yet, the opportunity to make a movie introduces minor fans to heroes they would have never seen otherwise.

While this is a wishlist of sorts, I’m also framing it as a realistic list for the Warner Bros. animation team. I know they only make movies they think will make them money, so I tried my best to pick stories that actually have the potential to financially succeed as an animated feature. That doesn’t mean every movie has Batman in it, but these were picked as opportunities that would please fans and producers alike. Trust me though, there are some amazing stories on this list that deserve the animation treatment right away!

I love Batman, movies and Tyrion Lannister. Check me out on Youtube!

  • Brian Supple

    I am all about a Blackest Night/Brightest Day trilogy.. Or even if they did it as a tv series like they did the (highly underrated) Green Lantern animated series. I loved that animated series, the storyline was great and the computer animated graphics were fantastic.

    If there is one thing that can make me cry in animation beyond Barry being forced to choose between his mother and the reality in Flashpoint, it’d be him looking around for Sue and Ralph post-Blackest Night when almost everyone was raised from the dead, and failing to find them amongst the re-living.

    Everytime I read blackest night, I choke up right there.

  • Langley Neely

    Another new film idea that is beyond ripe for revisiting in animation form is the seminal and iconic Kingdom Come! It deals with what DC does best, taking a good hard look at legacy, family, and what it truly means to be a hero. Also imagine what interesting things you can do with Alex Ross’ amazing artistic style translated into animation?! A story that might work too is currently ongoing and we don’t know how it will wrap up but judging by the first issue alone Rebirth promises to conclude in an epic way!

  • Doctor Odd

    I’d love to see Forever Evil made into an animated film.

  • Francisco

    Identity Crisis is the worst thing that happened to Comics

  • A great list but we should get the Sinestro Corps War before Blackest Night.

  • Armando E. Torre Puerto

    I really hope they never do Identity Crisis. While the story is very good it meses the drama-free life of the Nick Charles of the DC universe. DC finally fixed that, Sue is back, Ralph is getting mainstream popularity in the Flash TV show, and recycling the story would create a New Wave of fans with the wrong idea about Sue and want a Revival in çontinuity. Let’s just drop it. Besides, in Identity Crisis, neither Batman nor Ralph (or Green Arrow at least) really solve the case on time, and that’s messed up.

  • Jet Jaguar

    IMO we’re overdue for an Emperor Joker movie.
