I am 99% sure this isn't DCAU. It's not the first time they've used the old voice cast for some of the DTV movies. Besides which, aside from homages, I don't think Timm has actually expressed interest in revisiting the DCAU.

Though I'm sure the folks at Watchtower Database will make some convoluted video about JL vs The Fatal Five being connected ;)
I jest, I jest

Speaking of, we were gonna drop a speculation video on Sunday and then the casting news came out last night, so we decided to edit and put it out before they dropped anything more on us

This almost seems like more of an all-ages, Trapped in Time, type story then something in-line with the other Animated Feature films, at least with their recent tone and style. Although that's just going off the plot synopsis :ack:.

It kind of makes me hope they handle the mature themes and content tastefully in this film...

For those curious, the Justice League vs The Fatal Five preview available with Reign of the Supermen does not specifically say if the movie does or does not take place in DCAU continuity. That said, the line-up will feature some new faces on the team working alongside Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, including Miss Martian. Mr. Terrific will also have a prominent role in the movie. Be sure to check out the preview when you pick up Reign of the Supermen!

And a reminder, just in case - while discussing the contents of the Sneak Peek is allowed, please do not link to or post any illegally uploaded copies of the video. Unless it's shared by an official channel (i.e. Warner Bros. On Demand, DC Universe, etc.), it must not be posted here.

I know some people are thirsty for new DCAU content, but if we ever do get a real #JLU reunion, they'll certainly make a big splash about it. That's pretty much the only way I see the DCAU coming back, at least for one more DTV.
I'm sorta hoping this is a loose sequel to JL: Gods and Monsters and then the next one will be where the two JL's crossover.

I just saw a still for Justice League vs Fatal Five. The characters and artsyle look straight out of JLU, so maybe this is a DCAU film?

Huh. Is this supposed to be the #JL Reunion everyone was clamoring about?

Speaking of which, where the heck is Supergirl? I'm confused.:eek:

I doubt it will ever be made clear like Batman and Harley Quinn some consider it DCAU, me as well, while others state it's a stand alone film. Unless it has something specific to keep it out it will most likely be considered by most to be DCAU.

Yeah, I think this is another case of them using the DCAU designs and not worrying too much about the continuity :p.

Also someone who saw the sneak peek said the staff is:
  • Producer - Bruce Timm
  • Screenwriter - Eric Carrasco, Jim Krieg
  • Director - Sam Liu

With Eric Carrasco involved, I will presume Supergirl will still appear in the movie and they're just keeping it a secret for now. :p

But I liked his work on Justice League Action and it's cool he gets to work some more with these characters in animation.

Apparently John K. is FINALLY finished with 'Cans Without Labels'.
I was never a big fan of Hannah Montana, but it had the best brother-sister relationship I have ever seen on TV.
I'll Be making February 2019 Nick Premieres on Tuesday or Thursday.
lots of things might be scheduled ones that include Crashletes, Double Dare (Special & S1 Finale), LSBS (S2 Finale), More Henry Danger and Cousins For Life... Knight Squad (S2 Premiere), The Loud House, SpongeBob, RainbowButterflyUnicornKitty, Sunny Day, Peppa Pig & Lots More...
SPECULATION So, I've decided the only CN originals we could see added to Boomerang this year are Dexter's Laboratory and Codename: Kids Next Door, already among the most requested shows on the platform. Everything else is on CN On Demand through the end of the year or on Hulu, and we may not see those until 2020 at the earliest. This does not include some of the lesser-known CN stuff.
RTP and SIC did reports on Popeye's 90th. Only SIC mentioned the new web series wothout even mentioning its criticism. Both didn't even mention Wimpy. Maybe he merged with Homsar because of a wrench.
