    Holy crap! They pulled out all the stops with this one. Documentaries, comentaries, sneak peak at that rumored Batman Begins-verse anime! And are those really Bruce Timm's favorite Justice League episodes? Good episodes, just seem like odd choices is all.

    Well, I hope its better than the death of Superman. As of now my expectations are rather low.

    Can't wait.

    I would have to say my favorite JLU episode is the one where they give the backstory on what really happened with Batman Beyond.

    Wow, quite spiffy. But the sneak peek of Batman: Gotham Knight must mean that The Powers That Be shifted the schedule to make it the third direct-to-DVD feature instead of Teen Titans: The Judas Contract (though I'd never read the actual comic, that was the one of the three features that had me most excited).

    The JLU episodes do seem pretty oddball, but I haven't seen two of them so I don't know how good they are.

    And it's been a while since I looked for any information about New Frontier. How much is the actual movie going to look like the cover art?

    There are screenshots in the link in the opening post. That one of Supes looks really Fleischer like.

    Looks cool, but I'm getting sick of anime and the whole Batman anime thing is not appealing.

    About the screen shots, I expected it to look more old-school than it does, but sill. looks like a cool movie.

    Oops. I forgot to check the link since all the features info was quoted.

    It looks pretty good. Not quite what the cover shows, but it strikes me as being a bit more removed from the Timm style than Superman: Doomsday was, and from what I dug up on Google, a lot closer to its source material.

    I passed on the Doomsday DVD but I am grabbing this one for sure. Lots of goodies and an HD-DVD version. :)

    I still wish they'de have got some of the JLU voice cast but it looks pretty cool. I liked Doomsday so this should be even better.

    The Doomsday story was trying to cover over 100 issues, while new frontier is only trying to cover 12. So the story will be much closer to the comic. They have already showed side by side comparisons to the comic panels from the series. While it won't have everything it'll be really close.

    This really sounds like pure win on optical media.

    The extras sound really good -it's too bad I already have all of those episodes of JLU.
    I think they are pretty odd choices, too -except for Task Force X.

    Another undocumented bonus feature is that through all of my various Batman, Superman, and Justice League DVDs I am pretty able to accurately track Bruce Timm's weight fluctuations. He appears to gain and lose about 20 pounds every couple of years.

    I lok forward to furthering my studies on the matter.

    I hope this is better than Superman: Doomsday. I have been into The Batman as of late. I loved the entire Batman Animated/Superman/Justice League run and was originally put off by The batman. But the later seasons seem to get a good flow and they tweaked the look appropriately.
