The DC Animated Line Up looks extremely promising. DC has gone for a quality over quantity approach. And with the DCAU Future slate, we have to say we are rather impressed.
DC Super Pets – 22 May 2022
The movie has onboarded the Jared Stern, the man behind the epic LEGO Batman movie. DC Super Pets is made for a family focused audience. The story will introduce new animal characters like Krypto the Super Dog and Ace the Bat Hound along with other major pets of prominent DC Heroes. There will obviously be a jaded ensemble cast to lend their voices to the characters. DC Super Pets is DC’s attempt to diversify their DCAU portfolio. While still a risk, the movie could end up being a laughter riot like Teen Titans Go. Any DC Animated movie is welcome given how scarce they are going to be in the near future.
Batman: The Long Halloween – 2021

The movie will have Two-Face as a villain instead of Joker. This is one movie you cannot miss if you like to see Batman actually walk the talk and be the World’s Greatest Detective. The Long Halloween was also one of the many story arcs that influenced Matt Reeves’ The Batman.

Fans of classics should not let this one slide.
Harley Quinn Season 3 – 2022
There are officially no talks regarding the release date for a third season of the popular trash talking villainess. The Harley Quinn animated series has been such a hit with the fans.
