DC original animated movies

They turned Harbinger into a palette swap of Frankie Raye's Nova from the Fantastic Four?

...I know that's a weird thing to point out, but still.

Merry Little Batman is out.

It's got a little more plot than I thought but, whoa, cartoony violence might be too over the top.

Joker is pretty great.

Part that shocked me was the stabbing. Then the eventual result. Yow.

Finished watching Crisis.

It wad confusing, with all the jumping around.

It was only at the ending that I kicked myself for not figuring out the connection to the actual comics story beat. Blindsided me when it shouldn't have, haha.

I'm a Legion of Super-Heroes fan but I wanted why they picked Dawnstar. I can't recall if she did something major in the original comics.

Woot! That would be awesome! I wonder how they managed that. Like did he record something for this that long ago or did they take some dialog from his previous work and re use it? I mean there is probably enough there for a whole movie.

The lead times for animation are far enough he likely recorded stuff well before he passed. Kevin Conroy reportedly has a role in Amazon's "Caped Crusader" animated series, though not specified since Amazon hasn't revealed much about it. The assumption is that he won't be Batman, but some supporting role. COIE Part 3 will reportedly be the last time we hear him as Batman.

I thought this did things better than the original Crisis in several ways, notably how Barry Allen actually got a better ending. And it was clever how they tied this in with the previous New 52 adaptation movies by having Pariah be the previous universe's John Constantine, having been dumped there after the House of Mystery epilogue to New 52.

We watched the first part now that it was on Max. It was pretty good. Loved the old Wally and Iris scenes with Amazo.

Crisis Part 3 dropped today. They actually wrapped it pretty good, and the "hook point" was actually rather novel. It does a good job of "clearing the slate" under the new DC management. The only new films in production, that I know of, is the new Watchmen adaption. If they handle things like Marvel, this could well work as a "wrap up" of the entire DTV animated adaption initiative, much as what Marvel did when the MCU got going.

Lots of cameos and references. And after Suicide Squad...they gave Conroy a short but damned satisfying wrap to his time as Batman (it's on Youtube, just look for it).
