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.
