Superman: Unbound sounds like it has potential. The storyline was decent and an animated version might add to it. Flashpoint, however, why? That was a very disappointing mini-series, and epitomized the problems DC had prior to the New-52 (the problems DC had after the New-52 is a different topic ).
If you get rid of the general plot and just focused on the world went wrong angle and throwing the spotlight on a Justice League of very different personalities (Thomas Wayne, Cyborg and a very different Marvel against evil WW and Aquaman), it would certainly be a more serviceable story.

I heard the Batman mini was good and I enjoyed the Superman one. They had some interesting ideas, but the overall execution was horrible. Hopefully, they'll be able to make it better for the movie.

Hmm, an adaptation of Snyder's Batman Court of the Owls would be a pretty cool DVD movie.
Agreed - or a novelization like "No Man's Land" had.

Kevin Conroy had stated he'd done work for Flashpoint so I wonder how many of the voices will be from the DCAU work.

I wouldn't be surprised if we did get an Court of Owls DTV. Flashpoint came as something of a surprise when it was announced last year.

I suspect that the reason that we are getting Flashpoint is because DC is real ls really eager to push the new 52 into other mediums. As it currently stands none of the current ancillary materials correspond with the New 52. I'm sure that DC is eager to change that.

NO ONE outside of DC's corporate offices was demanding to see Flashpoint.

Supergirl's pretty cute, but I can't say I'm that impressed by much else in there. Superman looks kinda weird, and the animation looks like a step down from their usual work.

Re: Superman:Unbound and Flashpoint DTV

I don't understand why they didn't adapt Gary Frank's art work. They used his Brainiac design but that's about it. That being said...this impressed me, and was one of Johns best stories during his Action Comics run and the cast is fantastic.

It is a very different art style, but I like it, and I love the cast. I'm not familiar with the source material, but the story definitely looks interesting.

Re: Superman:Unbound and Flashpoint DTV

It's just unusual since adapting the source material's artwork has been part of their mandates for the DTV's since the first one. It seems weird that they would abandon that now.

Uhh, no, it really hasn't. The first one was Superman/Doomsday, and its art style wasn't specifically based on the comics; in fact, a lot of people at the time felt that its look was too similar to that of the DC Animated Universe. Some of the DC Universe movies have reflected the art style of the books they adapted -- including New Frontier, the two Superman/Batman ones, All-Star Superman, and the Frank Miller adaptations -- but others, such as Under the Red Hood and Superman vs. the Elite, have not. Like everything else about these movies, it's been case by case rather than consistent across the whole line.

Re: Superman:Unbound and Flashpoint DTV

I may have made a mistake as far as the exact nature of the mandate, but where there is specific and unique artwork they have attempted to adapt it as possible. Gary Frank would fit into this. Anyway, I was impressed by the trailer and am looking forward to seeing this.

I suspect there may be a licensing issue with using designs based on Reeve and Kidder in a movie. DC may have secured the rights for the comic, but never negotiated the right to then use the comic design in a DTV/movie.
