I'm guessing the possibility of seeing the destruction of Coast City and an eventual adaption of Emerald Twilight is slim to impossible? How I would love to see that, though.
I think if we were going to see Coast City destroyed or an Emerald Twilight adaption, we would have seen it in the next batch of movies in 2019.

I'm not even sure if they're going to fit Mongul into this adaption.

Well, speaking on this, (spoilers from the longer sneak peek):

Nathan Fillion's Hal Jordan is the only confirmed member of the League returning for this movie.

So, I suggested at IMDb that the current production status for Reign of the Superman should be changed from 'Announced' to 'Post-production'. However, I wonder now if 'Filming' would still be more accurate?

The site is also taking its time to update the entry with Sam Liu as director and Jim Krieg as co-writer (though I did furnish that data a few days ago).

Miereanu was coy about an NYCC announcement on the 4th, so I'd guess it'll come this Tuesday, the 11th.

He also hinted at more cast announcements other than those from Part 1. So far Monaghan is voicing Superboy but who else could appear... well, there's Gangbuster, Newsboy Legion, Guardian, Thorn, Tana Moon, Mongul, Vincent Edge, Ron Troupe and so much more I'm forgetting.

I thought it was interesting that Eradicator is the only Superman who's VA they didn't confirm or have an interview with in the sneak peek.

I guess he also low-key confirmed the return of the rest of the Trinity, Flash, Martian Manhunter, Cat Grant, and Cyborg ;).

The movie will have a lot going on, but if Death indicated anything it's that they'll try and fit in as many characters as they can, even in cameos. Tana seems like an easy character to work into Superboy's story at the very least :).

September 12th:
There will be a panel at New York Comic-Con on Saturday October 6th.
October 06, 2018, 6:15 PM - 7:15 PM
Main Stage 1D – Javits Center
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment extends its annual tradition of offering New York Comic Con fans the exclusive “first look” at the next DC Universe Movie. The critically acclaimed The Death of Superman took summer by storm, and the second half of the treasured DC Comics tale – Reign of the Supermen – completes the heroic package with its examination of a world first without Superman … and then with several vying for the ultimate title. Come enjoy an hour-long mix of never-before-seen animated clips and lively discussion amongst executive producer James Tucker, producer/director Sam Liu, screenwriters Jim Krieg & Tim Sheridan, character designer Phil Bourassa, and actors Patrick Fabian (Better Call Saul), voice of Hank Henshaw, Toks Olagundoye (Castle), voice of Cat Grant, Nyambi Nyambi (The Good Fight, Mike & Molly), voice of Martian Manhunter, and some potential surprise guests. Reign of the Supermen arrives from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment in Early 2019.
October 4th:
Gary Miereanu shared this behind the scenes photo from the upcoming panel at Comic-Con.

(I can't remember off-hand if that scene was in the Sneak Peek).

Godfrey being in it pretty much confirms some Apokolips involvement in events, I'd wager :ack:.

Superboy with the Justice League sounds hilarious :p.

Well, we may not get a mullet but it sounds like the returned Superman will still have long hair :).

Also sounds like we can count on Batman and Catwoman's romance being part of Hush (not unsurprising) ;)

Agreed, they set up bread crumbs in Death of.

The love-hate relationship with mullets in DC animation has come a long way. lol.

EDIT: IGN has a summary of the panel, too.

I haven't listened to them yet, but Geek Vibes Nation posted some roundtable interviews from Comic-Con on YouTube. I presume a Possible Spoilers warning would be in order.

- James Tucker
- Nyambi Nyambi
- Patrick Fabian

EDIT:
In the video with Fabian, around the 8:07 minutes mark, they seem to tease a release date of February 2019, which does seem kind of consistent with past release dates fro the 1st movies of the year. But I imagine we'll have more official details about this eventually.

Also, there aren't really any spoilers in these interviews from what I can tell. They briefly discuss the movie, but it's mostly stuff you'd expect or what was discussed previously.

Stephanie Sheh voicing Izzy Park the same way she does Sailor Moon has me considering the chance of Nazneen Contractor dubbing some "Sailor Moon" episodes I currently dont plan to buy.
Watched the newest Halloween yesterday
I can’t express my unpopular opinions without someone yelling or disagreeing at me why I’m a monster for thinking that way (liking adult animation, SpongeBob’s new episodes are inferior, etc.)
If you have Starz Encore Family (Not Kids & Family, but Family...) 1 hour as of this post, they'll be playing "Inspector Gadget Saves Christmas" and "Sonic Christmas Blast". (3:19pm-4:06pm EST) Both will play again at some point.
I'm at episode 50 of {Batman: TAS ∧ Hey Arnold}.
