This is the world of superheroes. The DC comics are a hub for some of the greatest heroes and villains. Dark though they might be, DC comics do not fall short of content and even when about a dozen movies are lined up in its live-action universe, there is so much potential in its comics that one single universe can’t take it all. To counter this, the DC universe has its own animated universe which runs in a different vein from the live-action movies and allows it more rein to consider its options with the material that it wants to use. Films of DC’s animated universe (the DCAU) are consistent in quality, unlike the current DCEU, and undeniably more fun. I am a fan of the DCEU, still, but I have to admit that some of the animated gems in there are absolutely precious. The reasons for this could be multifarious.
One, the creators of the comic book storylines in adaption are very directly involved with the development of the final animated product. Two, in the animated arena and given the current technological tools at your disposal, there is a lot more flexibility and a lot less studio interference. Apart from some of them that got a limited theatrical release, most of DC’s animated features got a direct-to-video release, which I think is a great way to satiate the ever hungry fandom sans the large periods of anticipation and the heavy price on the cinema ticket, provided they keep ’em coming.
Having said that, it’s natural that the fans await with bated breath for every next release in DCAU’s gauntlet, especially given the tremendous reputation that the DCAU has been able to establish among fans, with some iconic storylines adapted successfully onto animated media, and the final products, I daresay, turning out better than many of the multi-million superhero projects out there. Every year there are several new DC animated movies that come out. Some are good, some are mediocre. Here is the list of upcoming DC animated movies (new releases in 2019, 2020) that one should keep an eye on. We hope these latest DC animation movies are as good as some of the recent ones.
3. Super Pets movie (2020/2021)
If you thought that after watching so many superhero films you had made acquaintance will all sorts of superheroes and nothing bizarre would ever come your way again, you are about to be proven wrong. This also points towards the fact that you don’t read many comics. However, without passing judgement, I’ll move on and tell you about ‘Super Pets’, and you should know about it because it is going to be made into a movie soon. Although Super Pets like Comet, Krypto, Streaky and Beppo had already made appearances in various comics, it wasn’t until the 1962 comics that they first made their appearance as a proper group, much like the Justice League. The premise had some alien creatures trying to gain control of every super-hero because they want to move Earth to their own solar system. The heroes soon realise that the mind tricks of these aliens don’t work on animals and so they call upon the services of the Super Pets.
