“Superman/Batman: Public Enemies” Home Video Release Crosses 400,000 Moved

Released in September 2009, the direct-to-video Superman/Batman: Public Enemies animated feature remains a steady seller for Warner Home Video, still managing to average an estimated 5,000 – 10,000 DVD units sold a week despite hitting shelves over six month ago. The title crossed the 400,000 DVD units sold mark in February 2010, making it one of the highest selling titles under the DC Universe Animated Original Movie line to date.

Though unconfirmed at this time, a sequel to the Superman/Batman: Public Enemies direct-to-video animated feature is reportedly in production. Its impressive initial week sales and continued performance on the home video market is the purported reason for Warner Home Video to move ahead with a second Superman/Batman direct-to-video animated installment. As is standard practice, Warner Home Video will not comment on any animated feature that has not been announced as in production.

Additionally, The Worlds Finest is currently unable to receive confirmation from Warner Home Video or Warner Bros. Animation concerning a new Green Lantern direct-to-video animated feature. Reportedly set for release next summer, to tie in with the live-action Green Lantern 2011 theatrical release, the DC Universe Original Animated Original Movie title will apparently focus on different members of the Green Lantern Corps. A new Green Lantern animated series is also rumored to be in production for Cartoon Network, with an initial episode order of 26 episodes, but also remains unconfirmed by Warner Bros. Animation at this time.

Green Lantern: First Flight, the first Green Lantern direct-to-video animated feature released by Warner Home Video under the DC Universe Animated Original Movie banner, has sold an estimated 306,000 DVD copies to date since hitting shelves in July 2009.
