DC Animated 2012 Slate

At the 2011 San Diego Comic Con, four firms were officially announced to follow Batman: Year One. They are:
Justice League: Doom – this animated adaptation of Mark Waid’s JLA: Tower of Babel storyline was the last thing written by Dwayne McDuffie before his passing. The story should make for an awesome film – as it features Ra’s Al Ghul using methods devised by Batman to take down the Justice League.
Superman Versus The Elite – is another comic adaptation, this time of the popular Action Comics #775, written by Joe Kelly (collected in Superman: The Greatest Stories Ever Told, Vol. 1). Superman takes on a group of popular heroes that use violent means to solve problems. It’s an excellent story that shows how Superman can still be a hero in the grim and gritty age.
The Dark Knight Returns – The classic story by Frank Miller gets its long rumored animated adaptation, but in a surprise move, it will be split into two separate releases. That’s really a good thing, when you consider the scale and epic magnitude of the story. Featuring a futuristic Batman in a distopian, media heavy society fighting against a government controlled Superman – this story spawned numerous copy cats, created the prestige format comic boom and defined Batman for the next 20 years.
