Series News




News on DC Universe Direct to Video Movies, DC Animated Series, DC Animated Shortfrom Series and related topics will be posted as well as information on new releases of past series. In most cases a link will accompany each headline back to the original article. News on the DCAU originates from animation and comic book related news sites, personal staff forums, blogs, or comic book conventions. Fans beware, in some cases, false news does get spread among the Internet.

Need to find older news or update information? Check out the Archives. For shows, shorts or movies that are no longer in active production such as Young Justice, all of the news about it is only located in the Young Justice section and not this news page. Also to note, for this news page, on the 15th and end of each month, I do delete older news if it has been revealed. For instance, if a May 5 news item reveals a new voice actor and role and the episode he actor guest stars in airs on May 10 then I will delete it on May 15 and the news item will only be on the show's news page and not this main news page.

The box set will be $99.99 SRP USA and $119.99 SRP Canada. The limited edition is 50,000 units total. 41 episodes have been fully-remastered from either their original 35mm film source or the uncommon format "OCND," the original camera negative digital (a digital scan of original negative). "Lines and resolution have been enhanced, and dust and dirt have been removed - however, cell dirt remains to not disturb the original picture. Included in the remastering was the removal of grain, resulting in enhanced colors. The remastering process does cause a slight aspect ratio change (approximately 3% loss of screen image). Due to time-worn irreparable damage, the remaining 11 episodes were "Smart Rezzed" from standard definition Digibeta video. The process provides for significant enhanced resolution and improvement of the original source material in converting from standard to high definition, though it does sacrifice horizontal lines for clearer image and color representation. While still a marked improvement over the original video, viewers will notice a slight difference between the Remastered and the Up-Rezzed final footage." The 11 affected episodes are: "Eyewitness," "Final Cut," "The Last Resort," "Armory," "Sneak Peek," "The Eggbaby," "Zeta," "Plague," "April Moon," "Sentries of the Lost Cosmos" and "Speak No Evil."

    DC Showcase News

  • May 7, 2019: Five new DC Showcase shorts will release over 2019-2020. They will feature Sgt. Rock, Death, Phantom Stranger, Adam Strange, and Batman: Death In The Family. Still of Rock included. Death In The Family will be a long-form animated short anchoring a compilation set releasing in late 2020. Each short opens with a new, live-action branding sequence with easter eggs. Sgt. Rock is executive produced and directed by Bruce Timm and a script by Louise Simonson & Walter Simonson and Tim Sheridan. Battle-weary Sgt. Rock thought he saw everything that World War II can dish out. But he is in for the surprise of his life when he is assigned to lead a company consisting of legendary monsters into battle against an unstoppable platoon of Nazi zombies. Voice cast is Karl Urban as Sgt. Rock, Keith Ferguson, William Salyers and Audrey Wasilewski. Adam Strange is produced and directed by Butch Lukic, story by Lukic, and written by J.M. DeMatteis. On a rugged asteroid mining colony, few of the toiling workers are aware that their town drunk was ever anything but an interplanetary derelict. But when the miners open a fissure into the home of a horde of deadly alien insects, his true identity is exposed. He is space adventurer Adam Strange, whose heroic backstory is played out in flashbacks as he struggles to save the very people who have scorned him for so long. Voice cast is Charlie Weber as Adam Strange, Roger R. Cross, Kimberly Brooks, Ray Chase and Fred Tatasciore. Inspired by Neil Gaiman's "The Sandman," Death is produced and directed by Sam Liu and written by J.M. DeMatteis . Vincent, an artist with unresolved inner demons, meets a mysterious girl who helps him come to terms with his creative legacy... and eventual death. Voice cast includes Leonardo Nam as Vincent, Jamie Chung as Death, Darin De Paul, Keith Szarabajka and Kari Wahlgren. The Phantom Stranger is executive produced and directed by Bruce Timm and is written by Ernie Altbacker. Set in the 1970s, the short follows young adult Jess as she joins her friends at a party in a dilapidated mansion hosted by the mysterious Seth. When odd things begin to happen to Jess and her friends, the Phantom Stranger intervenes to save her from a dreary fate. Voice cast is Peter Serafinowicz as The Phantom Stranger, Michael Rosenbaum as Seth, Natalie Lander, Grey Griffin and Roger Craig Smith.

  • April 30, 2019: Michelangelo atop the Tyrannosaurus Rex in the Batcave and riding a skateboard and bumping into Alfred will be in the movie. Batman will be a little more serious than the Turtles so that there's contrast and the Turtles to be a little more serious than they were the 80's cartoon. Andy Kuhn drew the preliminary designs for the movie with lead character designer Steven Choi coming in and making Kuhn's designs more animation friendly. There will be direct homages to the 1990 film such as the shot of Shredder when he first confronts the Turtles replicated exactly when he first appears in this movie and there will be references to the Turtles in Time Super NES video game. One of the mandates from Nickelodeon was not to use the existing actors from the then current TMNT animated series. Baron Vaughn was always Halpern-Graser and Jones' first choice. Gary Miereanu came up with the notion of Troy Baker voicing both Batman and Joker. There is a post credits scene that teases a possible sequel. Comics Beat Article
