Every year I dare to hope that there will be a Superman game announced at E3. Once again I let bogus rumours get my hopes up, but I really feel that every year that passes brings us closer. It’ll happen. pic.twitter.com/hPlL9N9qQs

Do you think Rocksteady is still working on an open-world Superman game? Maybe it will be announced at San Diego Comic Con? Comment below!
Krypton stars Cameron Cuffe as Seg-El, Georgina Campbell as Lyta Zod, Ian McElhinney as Val-El, Elliot Cowan as Daron Vex, Ann Ogbomo as Alura Zod, Rasmus Hardiker as Kem, Wallis Day as Nyssa Vex, Aaron Pierre as Dev-Em, Paula Malcolmson as Charys-El, and Blake Ritson as Brainiac. Here’s the official synopsis:
KRYPTON is set two generations before the destruction of Superman’s home planet. The series follows Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), the legendary Man of Steel’s grandfather, as a young man who is faced with a life and death conflict – save his home planet or let it be destroyed to restore the fate of his future grandson. In Season 1, with Krypton’s leadership in disarray and the House of El ostracized, Seg found himself in a difficult position: redeem his family’s honor and protect the ones he loves, while being challenged by familiar DC characters Brainiac and Earthly time-traveler Adam Strange.
Krypton Season 2 is expected to premiere in 2019.
5 Reasons To Revive ‘Batman Beyond’
It’s a great time for fans of DC animation. A long awaited third season of Young Justice has finally been announced. This is alongside the slew of animated movies, which unlike the live-action DC films, have generally received great critical praise.
Recently, DC released Batman and Harley Quinn. It boasts a return to the creative style of Bruce Timm’s DC Animated Universe, bringing back the voice talents of Batman: The Animated Series stars Kevin Conroy and Loren Lester as Batman and Nightwing, respectively.
This is the closest we’ve come to a new DCAU series in more than 10 years. So why stop there? We last heard from the DCAU when Justice Leauge Unlimited ended in 2006. Though that series ended with a satisfying resolution involving an epic battle with Darkseid, there’s another series that never got real closure, that has plenty of untapped potential: Batman Beyond
The futuristic series ran on Kids WB from 1999 – 2001. It featured a young Batman, Terry McGinnis, taking up the mantle from an elderly Bruce Wayne, who guided the teen from the shadows. Despite the show’s critical and commercial success, WB wanted to take the network in a lighter direction, and unceremoniously pulled the show after a measly 52 episodes.
Though the show ended nearly 15 years ago, it’s remained an iconic iteration of Batman. It was so darkly distinctive, with its fantastic animation, mature storytelling and shocking violence. These distinctive qualities have allowed Batman Beyond to survive in comic book form to this day. It’s been part of the mainstream DC comics canon for years now, and through its many different storylines has shown remarkable creative staying power.
This suggests that there’s plenty of reason for Batman Beyond to come back to the air. With Batman and Harley Quinn’s imminent release, and the revival of Young Justice looming, the time is ripe for a Batman Beyond revival. Here are the 5 reasons why. Click next to get started!
