It's a shame with the A++ material that Marvel has, that they can't do something good that can sustain.  SSM and A:EMH are both fairly fantastic.  USM is bollocks and really AVASS really blows too so far.

 

To my mind, even SSH and A:EMH are well off the mark of the best DCAU stuff.  The best Marvel seems to be able to do is "decent".

Does anyone in this forum like USM at all? 

 

I'm not feeling good about Hulk and agents of S.M.A.S.H. either.

I enjoy it though I wouldn't exactly call it good.

I would put SSM somewhere below YJ....maybe on a par with Superman TAS.....

Marvel had SSM, Wolverine and the X-Men, and EMH, the three best animated shows they ever had, by far (as in nothing's even close save for the last few seasons of X-Men: Evolution), and they all died horribly premature deaths.

The only DCAU TV series I'd rate above Spectacular Spider-Man and Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes is Batman: The Animated Series. SSM I have second and A: EMH in third place. Can't go wrong with either!

So Professor Pyg is obviously a guy in a mask.  What is up with Mr. Toad.  Is he supposed to be an actual toad?  I looked at the comics character and he looked very similar.  I tried googleing, but there isnt much info on the dude.

I think Mr. Toad is an actual toad. Cool to see Professor Pyg make his animated debut, one of the creepiest new Batman villains.

Natural.  I'm not the boss of this forum, but I hate hate hate listmania.  Please, lets just say that they are good, but truthfully, I prefer JLA, JLU Batman Beyond(Of the future) and  YJ to SSM and A:EMH as well, but it's very close.  They are all great cartoon shows.

So Flashpoint leaked already, and it's pretty dang good, if you ask me.  I won't say much more until it's actually released.

Does it involve Barry Allen repeatedly failing at every goal he tries to achieve in the course of the film?

It may be a bit of personal bias against Wolverine, but I hated the fuck out of Wolverine and the X-Men. I tried to give it a chance, but the failure to flip Scott and Logan's roles by making Cyclops into a complete and utter moron just killed any interest I had in it. I did like the Nightcrawler/Scarlet Witch bits and the Polaris bits from the Xavier storyline, but those were woefully few and far between. Doing AoA in the second season would've been interesting, but the writing would've needed a major overhaul, IMO.

I loved the Cyclops/Wolverine inversion. They made Wolverine tolerable by having to make him responsible.

I loved Wolverine and the X-Men. They did such a great job with the Day's of Future Past storyline and capturing the utter despair and hopelessness of it. It also helps that I've hated Cyclops since I was a kid. I don't think I liked it as much as the original X-Men: The Animated Series but that's my favorite comic book cartoon.

I'm always faintly surprised when someone says they like Cyclops.

He's the most interesting character at Marvel right now.

 

But yeah, I always liked Cyclops. I hated Wolverine as a kid. Now I appreciate him more so long as he's not being written by Mark Millar or someone.

Never liked Cyclops in the 90's show. I have better appreciation of him now that I have through a decent amount of Claremont's run though his current status in Marvel, and X-fans blind love for him actually turns me off of his character again.

I liked Cyclops and Wolverine. Granted, I was growing up reading both the 60's X-Men books and the Claremont/ Byrne stuff. I liked every character, they were all cool.

Cyclops was always my favorite character and the direction they went with him in AvX was a huge part of my reason to stop reading Marvel books.

Flashpoint was awesome. The big battle scene.... oooohweeee. Great.

Might be the most emotionally heavy DC Animated film yet.  That  battle was just jaw dropping in it's emotional scope.

New DC Animated Universe films annouced at San Diego Comic-Con 2013:

 

After an overwhemingly positive response to the premiere screening of Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, Warner Bros went on to announce the 2014 lineup of animated films. The first being Justice League: War based off of Geoff Johns' New 52 Justice League comic. The second and third films are called Batman: Assault On Arkham and Son Of Batman. We don't yet know (for sure) what these films are based on, so we're hoping for clarification from the panel soon. According to users at Toonzone forums, Assault On Arkham is based within Rocksteady's video game franchise, while Son Of Batman is based upon Grant Morrison's famous introductory story for Damian Wayne.

Very happy with the three, more so Batman: Assault On Arkham and Son of Batman. With Damian Wayne getting a film, hopefully that means we'll be getting Batman and Robin as an animated film with Dick Grayson as Batman and Damian Wayne as Robin.

Why wouldn't you just name it Batman & Son?

Because not even Batman can compare favorably to Fred G.Sanford.
