    From Comicvine:

    Man, this sucks. I wonder if they're just cancelling what they had planned so far or if they're completely stopping all of these. Meanwhile, Marvel's craptacular animated DVDs (Planet Hulk the exception) are still probably going strong.

    What does that actually leave as still happening? "Under the Red Hood" and nothing else?

    That's kind of funny since the special features on Under the Red Hood was going to have a preview of the next feature

    While it's unfortunate that the DC animated stuff in general is being brought to a halt, I haven't purchased/watched any of their DTV offerings since New Frontier (which I didn't like) and wasn't interested in any of the upcoming projects. Can't say I'm surprised Judas Contract got canceled, since I'd imagine WB would want to make sure the Teen Titans cartoon is long out of the public consciousness before doing a more 'mature' version of that story. Also too bad that First Flight didn't do better, since I was hoping that would lead the way for some version of Sinestro Corps War and maybe even Blackest Night. Granted, it's not like I actually bought First Flight or anything, though.

    Considering that these DC DTV features are hit or miss. Of the ones I've seen, Public enemies hit the mark, where as WW and Superman/Doomsday were big misses. I'm really not surprised they've been canned. I also wasn't hyped for any of the ones that have been canned either.

    That's a bummer.

    Wonder Woman and Green Lantern were both cool (I still need to see Crisis) and I'm looking forward to Red Hood.

    Still while not all were fantastic it was just nice to see some well animated action cartoons coming from a western production company. Timm has been an amazing force with the DCAU and it's sad to think that we may not be getting more from him and his crew.

    That sucks, although some were so-so I liked having them. I feel the 70 minute run time hurts them all though. I hope that Batman Beyond project does happen eventually because I'd think it be cool to see more of the DCAU (assuming it's meant to be part of it) but the DTV movies allowed them to tell many different stories and more mature content

    Many also hit during a poor economy so some people may have taken longer to buy them. Sad, but we do have Young Justice coming, and the Green Lantern may lead to an animated series. It's not over yet so lets see what happens, maybe Batman Beyond will do well, or under a red hood will take off.

    Young Justice gives me a very strong Crisis On Two Earths vibe, so I can pretend it's the same universe and the DCAU lives on. But, like Tekkaman said, maybe the new GL movie will renew interest. If not GL, then maybe the Superman or Batman movie.
