It's really interesting that we're going to see a CG movie from this animated line. I wonder if it will look something similar to Green Lantern: The Animated Series/Beware the Batman. Either way, I was hoping to see a Super Sons movie, either theatrical or direct to video. Hopefully it's a great time with the boys.

I'm curious how it will compare to League of Super Pets...

Sam Liu has a lot experience with CG having worked on Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Beware the Batman. I wonder if this DTV is the one Liu was alluding to on February 2 and September 12.

Also with this being a CG movie, it explains why 2022's slate has only 2 movies and not 3 or 4. It took up the budget of 2 or more movies maybe.

When finding out that the original story was published under the family friendly DC Kids/Zoom branding (though I haven't read it), I figured that this movie might've gone for something family friendly. With the PG-13 rating, that's not the case. Though one thing I have noticed with DC DVD movies from the 2010s onward is that the PG-13/R rated movies largely adapt pre-existing stories while the family friendly ones are either based on TV shows (like Teen Titans Go or DC Superhero Girls) or are part of a toyetic franchise like Batman Unlimited or the Lego movies. Maybe this is just to keep up that trend?

Also, weird if they're really including Batman & Superman's names into the title. I get they would want some big names to attract viewers but you'd think the "Super Sons" would be enough.

I guess "Son of Batman Vs Son of Superman" would make people think this is a sequel or in continuity with the 2014 animated movie. Or a spin-off from Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, for kids. :p

Probably for cataloging purposes for home entertainment and easier for marketing to use "Batman" and "Superman" so they don't chaff about if "Super Sons" will be recognizable or not.

I love seeing a story come full circle. Russell Dauterman getting to recreate his own artwork from 11 years earlier as an official X-Men 97 variant cover.

Well, just created a new actual blog on Dreamwidth to go along with my Tumblr. Link will be in my signature!


Man, Twitter kids and their dumbest takes....
been thinking about those moves and additions adult swim made recently (getting superman, unicorn, checkered past, an aqua teen revival, and 5-8 pm). The character limit will choke me but I have a whole theory that this was all a way to better compete with FXX when their existing major shows had either switched sides or were in jeopardy
