Batman and Superman vs. Everybody-new cartoon movie

I was watching Green Lantern First Flight(I enjoyed it) and there was an extra about a new cartoon project with Batman and Superman on the run after Lex becomes president. What looked cool was the enormous number of heroes and villains after them. I saw a clip where Superman didn't look that great, but it looks all-in-all cool. Tim Daily, Kevin Conroy, and Clancy Brown all return to voice Superman, Batman, and Lex Luthor.

Ah yes, you are talking about the new Direct-to-DVD movie "Public Enemies". I'm looking forward to it!

This movie better be full of win. Having read the comic story, this can be epic.

World's Finest has revealed that John C. McGinley is voicing Metallo and LeVar Burton is voicing Black Lightning. Also, this will have the shortest running time to date for the DC Universe Animated Original Movie line: 67 minutes.

WTF! 67 minutes?! That is a ****ing rip-off! That's the first real negative note I've heard on this project. Sigh.

How can they pack the appropriate amount of awesome into such a small package?

Um the storyline the movie is based on was only 6 issues long.

Re: Batman and Superman vs. Everybody-new cartoon movie

All the previous DC Universe DVDs have been around 75 minutes (IMDb lists them all as 75 except Wonder Woman at 74 and Green Lantern: First Flight at 77). So 67 minutes isn't that far off. Maybe this story just didn't need to be any longer.

Look at it this way -- it's several minutes longer than JL: "Star-crossed."

And was mostly pages full of big, pretty pictures. It was Jeph Loeb, after all.

Good point, and that one felt pretty damn epic.

Which benefited from the previous two seasons building up Hawkgirl as part of the team and GL's lover. It was the culmination of a story, not a self contained beginning and end.

^As I understand it, this story doesn't have much setup -- it begins with Lex Luthor already the President, right? The viewers already know who Superman, Batman, and Luthor are. It's not an origin story like Wonder Woman or GL: First Flight.

That's probably a good point. It's pretty basic, really, and you can introduce the Big Plot Device and go to town. It ought to be fun.

I'll say again how jazzed I am at Conroy, Daly, and Brown headlining this. Heck, you could literally animate Superman, Batman, and Lex Luthor sitting around reading the phone book for sixty-seven minutes... and as long as you've got the three of them in the booth I'll buy it.

But...

Levar as Black Lightning? Really? I'll have to wait and see on that one. Nothing against Levar... I just don't know if that seems to fit, in my mind. Oddly, I can kind of see him as Jefferson Pierce, the dedicated and inspirational schoolteacher, but I always want to imagine Jeff in his Black Lightning persona as bringing a little more Batman-style menace to the table. I don't know if I can quite imagine Levar being all that menacing.

(Maybe it's too much Reading Rainbow in my youth, I dunno. Perhaps because of that, I have a hard time imagining Levar being much more imposing than, say, Mr. Rogers. I'll give him a chance, though).

--g

EDIT: No sooner did I post this than I saw the front-page bit about Levar and this role. Levar talking about reading comics as a kid, and preferring Batman over Superman, does give me a little hope. Can't wait for this to come out, for many reasons, but now in part to see what Levar might bring to the table.

I'm excited about the voice cast, but Public Enemies is pretty dang terrible story-wise....

In many ways Public Enemies was the culmination of four years of President Luthor stories, particularly Our Worlds at War. Unfortunately I've only read "Our Worlds at War" and "Ending Battle" as the trades are out of print and cost 50 bucks each.
