    I think it looks great and I can't wait to see it. However, this story has been told as much as Superman's origin and I'm eagerly awaiting new DC animated projects featuring someone other than the Dark Knight or the Man of Steel.

    Looks good, but gotta agree. The origin story has been done to death. Give us Knightfall or even Hush, something other than an origin story.

    I'm still upset they're using the Boondocks animation team...frankly I've never found that art style too appealing.

    But then again, I may just be missing Bruce Timm's original art style...

    Problem is DC only has two successful "big name" characters - Superman and Batman. They could probably get a good return on "The Flash", lesser so with "Wonder Woman", but as Green Lantern showcased, no one really cares that much about the DC characters.

    Look at Marvel's big success movies:

    - X-Men (1, 2, 3, First Class)
    - Origins (Wolverine)
    - Spider-Man (1, 2, 3)
    - Iron Man (1, 2)

    And even the "less popular" characters such as The Incredible Hulk and Thor had better returns than the Green Lantern. DC is doing what they need to do - stick to animated films where they have the monopoly (as Marvel's Wolverine/Hulk movie tanked).

    I prefer these animated movies than even the Marvel Live Action movies. Not all of them interest me, and the time it takes to make a movie has us barely exploring the origin stories. While with these animated movies, they are covering some of the more interesting grounds covered by the comics, this being the exception. I still want to check it out though.

    Agreed, plus the studio isn't going to be interested in being faithful at all to source material, they care more about money. Whereas with the animated films, they are produced by the comic companies themselves, so faithfulness is at their core.

    Also, with animated films, you avoid the whole "sillyness" factor when translating a costume to live action, case in point the GREEN LANTERN mask.

    Add me as well.

    It looks good, I'm sure it'll be a good story, but there can be more to Batman then an origin story.

    Very true, and with "team-ups" you don't have to worry about hiring all of the name-actors to play the roles.

    I maybe in the minority... no.. I am in the minority, but I want a pho-king Thangarian story. I want Hawk-fucking-world. I want the Ran Thangarian War.
