All Good Things ....Get Cancelled By Poor Sales!

Apparently, DC Animated execs have cancelled any further planned projects for their direct-to DVD film division. WTF?! In an interview with MTV, Bruce Timm said that low & slow sales of the "Green Lantern: First Flight" and "Wonder Woman" animated DVD features have caused DC animated execs to re-think their approach to releasing further original animated movies. This effectively puts the kibosh on the "Batgirl: Year One" and "Teen Titans: The Judas Contract" DVDs. Noooooooo! "Judas Contract" would've kicked SO much ass!

However, there is a light at the end of this sad tunnel. Timm (the godfather of DC Animated properties) says there may be a "Batman Beyond" DVD at some point in the future and the "Green Lantern: First Flight" sequel may also still happen, but not until after the Ryan Reynolds GL movie is released. At least, we are still going to get the "Batman: Under the Red Hood" DVD this summer. I suppose I can hold off smiting DC for now. And by 'smiting', i mean 'bitching and moaning about it while filling my face with Cheetos and Coca-Cola'.
