Warner Home Video held their annual Home Theater Forum chat regarding television shows and animation on DVD and several DC Animation-related projects were asked about. For fans of the DCAU, news on a DVD release of The Zeta Project was big news, as well as a surprise. The robot Zeta, lead character of The Zeta Project, first appeared on Batman Beyond.
Toward the end of the chat, Warner Home Video revealed that The Zeta Project would see a 2009 release on DVD. Many more DC cartoon releases were mentioned, including other DCAU titles. A complete series collection for Superman: The Animated Series is also being considered, as is a special edition for Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, something fans have been asking for for over two years. Warner Home Video is also seriously considering releasing Batman: The Animated Series on the Blu-ray format. No mention was made of a new possible Static Shock DVD release. For now, the only confirmed release of the above-mentioned titles is The Zeta Project. Complete DVD releases of Static Shock and The Zeta Project have been requested year after year by fans eager to have a complete library of DCAU animation. During the chat, Warner Home Video stated their goal is to release the entire DC Comics animation library onto DVD.
Stay tuned for further updates, including specific information on the upcoming The Zeta Project DVD release.
