While DC’s live-action films may not have the greatest track record, DC is known for animation. Warner Bros. have been pumping out numerous hits in DC animated films, and the producer of their latest release has his eye on some more. James Tucker, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract producer, says there are two projects he’d really like to work on, Swamp Thing and Flashpoint Batman.
While Flashpoint already received an animated film, Tucker believes there’s a bit more to explore there.
“Well we’re doing a few so I can’t say, but there was the thing we never got to do with Flashpoint was the Flashpoint Batman story. You know there was no time in the Flashpoint movie to tell that particular story. We did our little-abbreviated snippet to show you how Joker came about, but there’s a whole three comic book arc of that that was in the comics, and I always wanted to bring that to the screen.”
In terms of all new solo animation films, he thinks Swamp Thing could be a good spin-off after Justice League Dark.
“There’s so many like smaller known stories or good stories that didn’t have a big event behind them that would be great to adapt. I’d still love to do a solo Swamp Thing movie, and after Justice League Dark came out I’m like okay, I think we have a little more wind behind us doing that.”

5 Teen Titans Stories That Deserve The Animated Treatment
With Teen Titans: Judas Contract on the way, it’s a good time to be a Teen Titans fan.
In recent years the DC animated features have been doing a great job in adapting compelling story arcs. I think they should keep their eyes on the Titans if they want to continue releasing emotionally rich stories. Not only do the Titans stories feature great fight scenes, but they all feel like personal stories about characters continually growing and trying to find their place in the world. Let me just apologize in advanced for the fact Geoff Johns has such a solid place on this list. His run on Teen Titans helped solidify my love of comics and turned me into a monthly reader.
