Superman 75th Anniversary Animated Short

During this weekend’s New York Comic-Con 2013, DC Entertainment brought a special Superman 75th Anniversary panel to the Main Stage auditorium. During the panel, which celebrated the Man Of Steel’s importance in comics and pop culture, a special animated short was shown to the audience that featured Superman through the years.

DC has now released the 2-minute animated short online – watch it here below. And head’s up, it might leave you a little teary-eyed.

Put together by Man Of Steel director Zack Snyder and leader of DC’s animated universe movies, Bruce Timm, the short includes the many incarnations of Superman, starting from his comic book origins in Action Comics #1 to the animated series, TV shows, and feature films. Along with the Kryptonian, we get to see some of his adversaries, like Bizarro, and allies, like Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen.

The short will be included on the Man Of Steel Blu-ray and Blu-ray Edition releases, due out on November 12, 2013.

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns

A few weeks ago Warner Bros. and DC Comics Premiere Movies formerly announced the voice cast for their upcoming two-part direct-to-video animated adaptation of the classic 1986 DC miniseries Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, one of the most popular and influential Batman stories ever created and a cornerstone of the revisionist superhero comic movement that took shape in the late 1980s.

Warner and DC have included a special 13-minute preview of The Dark Knight Returns in the supplementary features on their latest DTV animated offering Superman Vs. The Elite. You can check out the preview here below.

Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns

Around the time that the forthcoming The Dark Knight Rises went into pre-production, Warner Bros. and the newly rechristened DC Comics Premiere Movies (formerly DC Universe Animated Original Movies) announced that the next two direct-to-video animated features starring Batman would be based on two of the greatest stories of the Caped Crusader ever told. Late last year Batman: Year One made its debut and was greeted with warm praise from critics and fans who had been apprehensive about how the classic comic book miniseries would translate to animated movie form. The second of the two Batman animated projects is by far the most eagerly-anticipated of the DTV Bat-films, considering that it is an adaptation of what is routinely referred to as the greatest Batman tale of them all.

The Dark Knight Returns, the groundbreaking 1986 miniseries that took Batman in a bold and startling new direction and became one of the hallmarks of modern comic book storytelling, will provide the basis for the next animated Batman movie. The original series took place in the future where an aging Bruce Wayne, now 55 years old, emerges from retirement as Batman to rescue Gotham from the clutches of a rampaging street gang called the Mutants. Soon not only does he find himself battling crazed punks, but also the supposedly rehabilitated Harvey Dent, his oldest archenemy the Joker, and even his longtime ally Superman, now an agent for the U.S. government.

Holiday Geek Gift Guide: Batman Edition

Put on your capes and cowls, everybody! There’s pine needles on the living room floor, snow on the ground, and a scent of cinnamon in the air. Your dogs and cats are tearing apart wrapping paper, your family’s in town and you can’t stop drinking sparkling cider for some reason. That could only mean one thing, folks, it’s the nondescript religious holiday season! And that means that it’s time to go into credit card debt so that you can show those closest to you that you care, you know? And to make it a little bit easier on you guys, we here at Geeks of Doom have been shoveling our driveways so that we can deliver to you this, The Holiday Geek Gift Guide – Batman Edition! The best bat-gifts possible for the geeks on you gift-giving list!

As you can see, I’ve changed up the intro a smidge, and that’s simply because today we celebrate the holiday in the best way possible, with The Batman. Yes, The Batman. And while it may not make much sense to you that we’re doing this, you fail to realize that Batman makes everything better. In fact, the presence of Batman-centric holiday gift guide on this site makes not only this site better, but also it makes the world better. And isn’t that truly what the holidays are about? Making things better or something like that? Sure, why not! Anyway, it’s been a pretty big year for The Dark Knight, and that will certainly be evidenced by the majority of this list. We’ll also be making it a little easier on you by narrowing this list down by separate topics such as comics (and comic-inspired items), statues, Batman: Year One, and Arkham City. Sure there will be some overlap, but that’s all right because we’re talking about Batman! So let’s start of with the merriest of merries, comic books!

Geeks of Doom vs. New York Comic Con 2011

New York Comic-Con 2011 saw the premiere of the first episode of the all-new Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Geeks of Doom was there to watch it. The show will launch on November 11th on Cartoon Network with the one-hour episode that was shown. The animated series will then take a bit of a break before returning to Cartoon Network in the spring as part of the DC Nation block of programming.

The series is produced by animation legend Bruce Timm, but according to Timm, is not a part of the unofficial “Timm-verse” which includes shows such as Batman: The Animated Series, Superman, and Justice League. During the panel, Timm remarked that some fans had attempted to link the universes together, but he wasn’t really buying it.
