Warner Bros. Might Have An R-Rated Animated ‘The Watchmen’ Movie On The Way

Warner Bros. Might Have An R-Rated Animated ‘The Watchmen’ Movie On The Way
For the past decade, Warner Bros. Animation has been giving DC Comics fans the movies they deserve, juggling a variety of tones and art styles to deliver adaptations of some of the biggest events in comics history. Beginning with ‘Superman: Doomsday‘ in 2007, the DC Animated Universe has served as both a blessing and a curse: on the one hand, examples of what faithful comic book adaptations can look like, and on the other hand, proof that the live-action Warner Bros.

Smallville Season 8 finale review - what did you think?

It's Been nearly a month since the USA watched (and then discussed) the climactic last episode of Smallville's eighth season, so avoiding the spoilers online has been a minefield.

One TV news site spoke of an unnamed character's fate and proclaimed 'Spoiler alert' but then showed an image of the person right next to the headline. So that gave the game away immediately and took some of the surprise out of the episode. Thanks, guys!

Well, the UK has now seen the Season 8 finale too. So here is my review - with spoilers - and the chance for you to chime in with your own comments.

Was this finale worth waiting for? Is the show still great to watch or has it gone off the rails? Have your say below...

The episode started with the arrival of Cosmic Boy from the future. He warned Clark that he will die the

Superman: Doomsday Tops the Comic-to-dvd Market

The explosion in comic book-related films in the last few years isn't confined to the big screen, or to live action. Both of the "big two" comic book publishers, DC Comics and Marvel Comics, have released a number of high-quality direct-to-dvd animated features based upon their characters.

While Marvel Comics may be the king of the comic book rack, DC Comics is the champion in comic book-related animated DVD sales, according to The-Numbers.com:

1. Superman: Doomsday - 9.4 million

2. Batman: Gotham Knight - 8.0 million

3. Ultimate Avengers 2 - 7.8 million

4. Ultimate Avengers - 6.7 million

5. Hulk Vs. - 5.4 million

6. Invincible Iron Man - 5.2 million

7. Justice League: The New Frontier - 5.2 million

8. Dr. Strange - 3.9 million

9. Wonder Woman - 3.4 million

10. Next Avengers - 2.9 million

Marvel's next animated release is Thor, designed to raise interest in the character slated for a live-action feature film in 2010. DC is releasing the animated origin story Green Lantern: First Flight in July.

Green Lantern: First Flight Trailer

As we all know, the live action Green Lantern movie is still at least year or two away, but in the meantime Warner Brothers is hoping to get your money for a new direct-to-dvd animated feature starring the Emerald Crusader. Green Lantern: First Flight is the latest in the Warner Premiere series that also includes Superman: Doomsday, Justice League: The New Frontier, Batman: Gotham Knight and Wonder Woman. I haven't been a huge fan of these animated features thus far, but I do think the Warner ones do have a slight edge over the Marvel ones from what I've seen. Green Lantern: First Flight is directed by Lauren Montgomery (Wonder Woman, Superman: Doomsday), and features the voices of Christopher Meloni, Tricia Helfer, Michael Madsen and John Larroquette. Look for it in stores on July 21st. Check out the trailer below.

New Trailer & Release Date For ‘Green Lantern: First Flight’

There’s a brand new trailer and a new release date for DC Universe’s next animated feature, Green Lantern: First Flight. The trailer looks pretty epic, and if anything, should serve as a good blueprint for the upcoming live-action Green Lantern movie, which is still in the casting stages.

Check out the trailer for yourself:

Not bad, right?

Green Lantern: First Flight is the re-imagined origin story of Silver Age Green Lantern, Hal Jordan. The film will mainly be set in space, and will feature all sorts of aliens and intergalactic battles and all kinds of crazy power-ring creations (as you can see from the trailer).

First Flight is being helmed by DC Universe’s Lauren Montgomery, the same brilliant little lady behind DC Universe’s other great features, Superman: Doomsday and Wonder Woman. Lending their voices to the film will

DVD Review: ‘Wonder Woman’ Continues Series of Interesting DC Universe Releases

DVD Rating: 3.5/5.0 Chicago – Even though I once had a weekly comic book addiction, I was never a big Wonder Woman fan. Maybe it was a trapping of my gender, but I always tended toward books with male heroes like Superman, Batman, and The X-Men. Having said that, I can still respect what the team behind DC Universe’s latest film have accomplished with “Wonder Woman,” another installment in an increasingly intriguing series of straight-to-dvd movies.

When you tell a lot of people that an animated straight-to-dvd movie is worth their time, a lot of them glaze over, smile, and nod. Trust me. “Superman: Doomsday,” “Justice League: The New Frontier,” “Batman: Gotham Knight,” and, now, “Wonder Woman” would make for a better superhero marathon than most live-action blockbusters of men (or a woman) in tights. If I had to rank the four, “Ww” would be the lowest, but that’s largely

First Look: ‘Green Lantern: First Flight’

DC Comics has long been my favorite in the animation game. I loved the Batman and Superman animated series that ran during the 90’s; I also loved Justice League and Justice League Unlimited, which ran during the early years of 2000.

I’ve remained a fan of the more recent DC Universe direct-to-dvd animated features, which include Superman: Doomsday, Justice League: New Frontier, and DC’s latest animated feature, Wonder Woman. And, at first glance, it’s looking like I’m going to enjoy the next offering from DC Universe, Green Lantern: First Flight, when it hits DVD/Blu-ray this summer.

Green Lantern: First Flight is a re-imagined origin story of the Silver Age Green Lantern, Hal Jordan. The film plays off the 1950’s sci-fi era, a time when the possibilities of space travel were a cultural phenomenon and test pilots like Hal Jordan were considered national heroes. The film

Exclusive Interview: Green Lantern - First Flight Director Lauren Montgomery

For director Lauren Montgomery, the animated Wonder Woman DVD film was a breath of fresh air, giving her the opportunity to work with the emotions of a female character that a project such as Superman: Doomsday might not necessarily do. Hopefully she enjoyed the opportunity, however, because she’s back in the realm of the macho superhero with this summer’s animated Green Lantern: First Flight.

Wonder Woman Review

I never got into Wonder Woman. That was my older sister’s thing. I dealt with her on the Superfriends, but that was about it. Also: Superman: Doomsday didn’t do it for me, I was warned against Justice League: The New Frontier and Batman: Gotham Knight, although cool, was a collection of shorts, not a full feature. So do I sound like someone who wanted to see Wonder Woman? After an exhausting day of schlepping a heavy backpack and eating nothing but a Honey Nut Cheerios bar I grubbed off of a co-worker? Heck no. This was one of the times when my really cool job that everyone is jealous about actually felt like a job. So here’s the punchline: Wonder Woman is frickin’ fantastic. Sixty seconds into this movie there are decapitations, Cyclopses, winged purple beasts and hot hot Hot warrior women. And awesome dialogue: “My spear is thirsty!

Superman: Doomsday DVD Review

Superman: Doomsday is Not a Superman cartoon for the kiddies. On the contrary, this straight-to-dvd feature is pretty adult, a fact quickly established in the first ten minutes when Doomsday, the unstoppable devastator from the early 90’s “Death Of Superman” story-arc, brutally murders a team of Lexcorp researchers who unwittingly unearth him, while Lex Luthor himself puts a pistol to the head of a female assistant and blows her brains out.

Even Superman’s character gets bumped up from PG to PG-13 status in this flick. His relationship with Lois gets a modern, adult rendering, best illustrated in an early scene where the pair of them are alone in the Fortress of Solitude, swapping innuendo about the best way to do the horizontal tango without inflicting too much bodily harm to Lois. (What fanboy hasn’t pondered the physical mechanics of super-sex?)

But hey, sometimes a more adult tone is
