Am I mis-remembering or did they say there would be more Showcase shorts coming out then the ones previously announced?
Actually, I think that Man of Tomorrow will be accompanied by the "Adam Strange" short. "A Death in the Family" is supposed to be a double-length short and will probably anchor the next collection just as the "Superman/Shazam" short anchored the previous one. I do think that the DC Showcase shorts are supposed to continue, at least for the immediate future.

I presume Superman: Man of Tomorrow will be out in July-August, and then Batman: Death in the Family coupled with the other DC Showcases, in October I guess (the same time-frame to how Wonder Woman: Bloodlines was released last year).

And yeah, I am pretty sure they will still find a way to announce what's coming next year even if Comic-Con won't happen in the Summer either. Though I think they had separate announcements for the DC Showcase shorts, last time those were announced before the movie line-up was revealed.

If nothing else, Warners can simply issue a press release through Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

James Tucker revealed there was a planned Batman vs Robin end credit teaser that cut to Dollmaker's abandoned factory then into a back room where there's a writhing figure strapped to a gurney, the camera pans over to see the Joker's face pinned to a wall, setting up Death of the Family. However, DC nixed it.

Beyond the fact that I don't like faceless Joker, it would be pretty hard to do Death of the Family when the family is only three people and just coming off a movie where Batman and Robin already fought...so I think DC made the right call here :sweat:.

Agreed... although it's a shame that we never saw the O'Mara Batman go up against The Joker in any siginificant way. The character's appearace in HUSH was fun, but basically an extended cameo.

This tweet by Tucker also highlights that they wanted to do more Teen Titans movies but the line was obviously cut short before they got a chance. It's weird that 'Teen Titans 3' was listed on that TCM website. All the other movies listed came (or are coming) to fruition, so I guess they just scrapped it late in the game.

Jason Spisak was also a surprisingly solid Joker (although I think they probably would have gone for someone different if this movie had gone through).

I'm bummed they never did much with Peyton Lists' Batgirl as well.

I figured they at least had a plan for a movie involving the Titans fighting Blackfire, but that doesn't seem to be happening :(.

It's a shame we might not see this version of the team again or see them do more with Donna Troy Wonder Girl, Superboy, or the Wallace West Kid Flash...

Tucker implies the third TT movie would have included the original TT team.
Yeah, this probably was something I really wanted to see, the rest of the original team in the modern day, what happened to them between the time-skip, And the implications of their existence for other heroes (Kid Flash with Flash, Speedy with Green Arrow). I guess now we'll never know :(.
There was end teaser storyboarded for Judas Contract cut for time that showed Blackfire scheming to get Kori.

Altbacker's first attempt at the cut teaser was Nightwing doing a "marriage test" obstacle course on Tamaran fighting Starfire's father's guards as the Titans cheered him on.
So we all had the right idea that the third film was going to be Blackfire and Tamaran focused :).

I kind of want to see those storyboards, if only to see Blackfire's design :p.
Not sure if it's movie-wise, but Gary Meireanu teases a big Monday announcement (54~55 mark).
I'm guessing they'll announce whatever they were planning to announce at normal Wonder Con :sweat:.

Nope unless Any Drafts or pitches leak online.

I wouldn't be against it, but they seem a little too "all-ages" for the Animated Feature line, but aside from the Lego movies I'm not sure if they have a dedicated all ages animated movie division.
It seems to me that if the line can expand into R-rated features, it can also go the other way into more PG territory, though Superman Smashes the Klan could be given a little more impact as a screenplay to make it PG-13. There's nothing wrong with diverging into some more family-friendly fare once in a while. I've made several such suggestions before.

EDIT: The other possibility is producing Superman Smashes the Klan as an animated movie outside of the DC Universe line.

Take this with a very huge grain of salt. While I was on Tomb Cartoon Monkey Skeleton, I found a comment which was saying which new CN originals will premiere this and next year.

Lisa Ortiz's mother passed away.

I found this interview that Pam Arciero (Grundgetta from Sesame Street) took part in. I mainly skipped to 1:35, where she mentioned how production on the show ground to a halt because of the pandemic. There was about 1 more week of material to tape. She says they could start again in October, but that could change.
About done watching Sonic Boom Season 1 on DVD. Good in a sense to know the episode "Fire in a Crowded Workshop" only in Spanish dialogue isn't just me, but other unhappy posters to its Amazon page.
