New DC Animated Projects

I don't know how many of you have read DC's series "New Frontier". I'm a huge fan of the series, and don't think it's really gotten the appreciation it deserves, especially in comic geek circles. It's one of my favorite DC projects of the past ten years or so, and I sort of think it's what they should probably do if they ever want to make a JLA movie.

Anyhow, they went ahead and made a feature film of "New Frontier". It just happens to be animated. Luckily, it's animated by Bruce Timm's folks, with input directly from Darwyn Cooke.

Check out this promo video:

Also, here's a look at the new season of Batman on Kids' WB. Superman, Lois and Jimmy will be playing a part for at least a few episodes.

And, here's a promo for Season 2 of Legion of Super-Heroes. My understanding is that there are two Supermen this season. One is the one you know, the other is a clone from the 41st Century, I believe.

I also think Legion has a great theme song. But that's just me.

Why? Why the mullet?

Glad they got Dana Delaney back.

What are you talking about? What mullet?

No, it isn't just you. I love it, too. That theme song harkens back to the great openings of the 60s like Jonny Quest, Space Ghost, the Herculoids and that ilk.

I hadn't quite put my finger on it, but that's exactly right. It does have that 60's pop feel to it. And doesn't assume the horns and orchestra strains one usually expects with Superman, which, given the age of Superman and the Legion feels right.

Thanks for popping up, Keith.

Clone Superman's hair is a little mullety.

Is RHPT the real RHPT we know, or a clone from the 41st century?

I'm actually a clone of The League from the 41st century.

The League said...

You just blew my mind.

It actually turns out that you're the clone.

I'm the original.

The League said...

Ah, so that explains why I'm the perfect specimen, mentally and physically. They've culled all the genetic crap right outta RHPT.
