Revealed during the San Diego Comic-Con 2016 debut of Batman: The Killing Joke World Premiere panel, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment announced three DC Universe Animated Original Movies slotted for 2017. The movies will be a mix of animated features taking place in the growing ‘New 52″-inspired animated continuity of the DC Universe Animated Original Movie titles along with an original stand-alone story.
First out of the gate will be Justice League Dark, an adaptation of DC Comics title of the same name, which will bring John Constantine to the world of animation for the first time. The studio says the movie will offer a look into the largely unexplored corner in DC’s connected universe of animated movies until now. The title will be released in Early 2017.
Teen Titans: The Judas Contract will follow in Spring 2017 and will serve as a follow-up to the 2016 Justice League vs. Teen Titans animated feature. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment originally planned a Teen Titans: The Judas Contract in 2008, but plans were scrapped. The animated feature will be heavily inspired by the classic comic book storyline of the same name.
Lastly, the 2017 lineup of DC Universe Original Movies concludes with Batman and Harley Quinn, a brand new, wholly original story from DC animation legend Bruce Timm. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment says the storyline for the feature is tightly under wraps, and official details will be released starting Spring/Summer 2017.
Other animated movies based on DC Comics titles, but taking place outside the DC Universe Animated Original Movie banner, will also be released during the remainder of 2016 and in 2017. At least one animated movie based on the classic Batman TV series is slated to hit shelves, along with additional Batman Unlimited and DC Super Hero Girls animated titles.
