From 2010 to 2013, Young Justice and its second season Young Justice: Invasion aired on Cartoon Network. When it got cancelled, DC fans were outraged. Including me, as I perceive Young Justice as the best DC animated show, what with its compelling character arcs and its skillful juggling of many characters from DC Comics. When it was on Netflix, fans streamed the show over and over in hopes that the show would come back. And their efforts were not in vain, as the show got revived for the DC Universe streaming service. Sometimes, shows get cancelled and never revived. Other times, shows are revived with subpar quality. But Young Justice: Outsiders is, thankfully, an instance where the revival maintains excellent quality. Plus, the show got renewed for a fourth season!
DC cosmology is made up of a pantheon of gods, cosmic beings, space patrol police officers, superheroes, and alien species. Within this DC Universe, as defined by the DC comics relaunchDC Rebirth, stands the Source at the edge of the DC Universe, beyond the Source Wall. It lies at the edge of the Promethean Galaxy behind the Source Wall, which is ornate with the mummified statues of great beings that have attempted to breach the Source Wall.
Aside from Aquaman, Shazam, and Wonder Woman, the DCEU has been largely looked down upon by critics worldwide. Those same critics have been filled with praise for Marvel films. With Marvel now having had over a decade of both critical and box office success, I believe that DC's experiments will render their next phase more complete than ever before.
Note: This is not a comparison piece between Lana Lang and Lois Lane, or any of the other potential love interests in 'Smallville'. I don't believe in bringing down one character to bring up another. Additionally, watch out for spoilers.
Many people have compared the actors who have played Batman in live-action films. And just recently, fans have been debating whether or not Robert Pattinson is a good choice for Matt Reeves' The Batman. But one topic that has never really been debated is live-action Batman actors on television. The reason for this is that there has pretty much only been one: Adam West.
It is not a surprise or even debatable that DC has a lot of catching up to when it comes to movies. Marvel's well organized and cinematic universe has proved to be extremely successful and with DC's foot in the door with movies like Wonder Woman and Shazam, there is a lot of potential with DC's next phase of movies as long as they plan everything right. Here are some comic book heroes that could and should be part of the DC Extended Universe.
Batman: Hush is the latest installment in the DC Animated Movies Universe, which resulted from time travel depicted at the end of Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, and began properly with Justice League: War. This universe started out as mostly an adaptation of The New 52 relaunch of DC Comics. But over the last couple of years, it has incorporated adaptations of older DC stories, including Teen Titans: The Judas Contract, The Death of Superman, and Reign of the Supermen, all of which are re-contextualized, so that they fit within the timeline of this universe.
Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a direct-to-video animated film based on the Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles crossover comic series released by DC and IDW from December 2015 to May 2016. Crossovers can end up feeling silly, and this comic book crossover seemed like it could easily fall into that category. However, the properties meshed very well, and the animated adaptation follows suit.
