New DC Animated Movies Warner Bros. Confirms 7 New Productions
DC’s big-screen productions are leaving much to be desired with the recent failure of Shazam! Fury of the Gods, Black Adam and now the slow start of The Flash. Despite the live-action films performing slowly, the animated series and films, on the other hand, are making an incredible impact. For that reason, DC is tapping into animated movies, with hits like 2020’s Justice League Dark: Apokolips War. There’s also the Tomorrowverse saga involving several titles like Superman: Man of Tomorrow and Justice League: Warworld, which will be released soon and will have an R-rating.
