Yes, the "DC Animated Movie" label does seem to separate this from the DC Universe line. I'm fine with the character designs as long as they don't borrow too much from those Mortal Combat animated films. I find those black squares on the knuckles of the fighters a bit distracting (and frankly stupid looking).Hunh, it's a DC Animated Movie title afterall. The character designs look the same from the Mortal Kombat Legends animated movies too. Really looking forward to this one!
EDIT (08/04): So much for my hopes for the character designs. *sigh*
