Honestly? I don't want any potential JLU reunion movie within five feet of these hard PG-13 / R movies. That ways lies Batman and Harley Quinn. I want whatever JL reunion we someday get to be consistent in tone with the show I loved in the first place. Part of why I loved JLU was because it was kid-friendly and fun. If they use the DC Universe movie label for a reunion, it probably won't be.

Put it under the DC Classics banner like Return Of The Caped Crusaders was. That had the potential to be an amazing banner, and they dropped it after two movies, and didn't even label the second one with it.

I don't want JLU back with blood and swearing. That's not the reason I loved the show. I loved the show because it DIDN'T have that.
I mean, if they aim for something like Crisis on Two Earths and Justice League: Doom, I think it should be fine since those were both pretty in-line with the original tone of JLU and the DCAU as a whole.

Granted, I think a lot of that had to do with the late great Dwayne McDuffie being the screenwriter for both films (and CoTE was a repurposed script to begin with), but it still indicates that it's feasible with the right writing and awareness of what the movie is trying to be.

Like with a lot of Timm's stuff as of late the quality is probably going to be very dependent on his collaborators and who's handling the writing.

Compared to JLU, I greatly disliked both of those movies. I felt like I wanted World's Collide, and somehow by McDuffie only changing 10% of the story, it was everything I didn't want it to be. I want JLU to be JLU, not some bastardized adult oriented thing like they did with Batman and Harley Quinn.

Edit:

Upon further reflection I have decided to delete the specific part of my post that might have offended other people. My apologies.

It's fine to speculate but let's go too off-topic and let's not jump onto a podium and go on a tirade. I'm not allowing it. Don't go any further, Fone. Nobody even reply to Fone. That's final.

Didn't Timm and Co. say a potential season 5 for JLU would have involved time travel? Perhaps they've condensed their ideas and made it into a DTV.
Yes, one brief idea they talked about involved the JLU going on a 12 episode journey through time. But I wonder if they wanted to revisit LoSH after using them for the Supergirl sendoff episode... but I digress.

Agreed. James Tucker also talked about a potential fourth season of the League going on a some kind of galaxy quest. I wonder if JLU ever gets revived, it might finally come to light.

I would really love it if the story in this sees the return of Nicholle Tom as Supergirl :).

But -- ! BUT-- !!

.....sigh.
Fine.
Jeez, is THAT what it takes to get your attention? That's a pretty far place I have to go to get you to unlurk. :D

Say, b.t., how did you like the last episode of the Twin Peaks relaunch? I'm betting you actually liked it. Grr.

Upon further reflection and a PM back and forth with Yojimbo, I have deleted the part of my post that could be considered inflammatory. I tend to have a rule about generalizations that if my demographic overlaps with an unkind one, and the generalization doesn't apply to me personally, I don't get offended because I assume the person who made the generalization wasn't referring to me. But I am one of the few people on Earth who actually sees generalizations that specific way so I need to buy myself a freaking filter. Toon Zone will be better for it.

For the record it is a point in Yojimbo's favor that he let the controversial part of my post stand instead of editing it out himself. And it's because Yojimbo is so fair and cool about things like that which is why I'm going to save him a little grief.

Perhaps the greater mystery of who's making this movie is who here guessed b.t. remembered his password? Or did he rummage through a drawer today and find it written down on a piece of paper? Taking bets. :p
This makes me wonder how much of the WB/DC crew still randomly peruse these forums and read what we say about their work :p.

I don't think there's really much you could change about Validus' look to make him different for each show/movie. The rest are probably easier to adapt though.

Amphibia looks pretty deece so far. The premise is like the isekai anime genre, except the main protagonist isn't stuck in a typical fantasy RPG world that most isekai anime take place in.
With all of the drama, hype and rumors going amok- past and present, inside and outside the animation community- I almost just want to escape, a la the late, great Jimi Hendrix:
I wish a happy 52nd birthday to Fred Tatasciore. He's known for many roles like the Hulk, Solomon Grundy, Rocksteady, Megatron, and many more.
This new "Amphibia" show actually looks interesting.
