-Brainiac Attack: The Intellect Behind the Super-Villain (New Featurette) – In Legion of Super-Heroes, Brainiac 5 proves himself to be the pinnacle of all Brainiac iterations, but how did he become that way?

Warner Bros. Animation released images and details from the Green Lantern: Beware My Power movie premiere and discussion panel at the San Diego Comic-Con 2022 pop culture convention on July 22, 2022. The studio also confirmed the four initial animated movies coming from DC Comics and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment in 2023, previously reported here. More details and images can be found below.
It was Christmas in July as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment gave a gift, then tossed in a few surprises at 2022 Comic-Con International this past weekend.
The initial gift — the World Premiere of Green Lantern: Beware My Power — came on Friday night as the enthusiastic Ballroom 20 audience was treated to the first public screening of the latest entry in the 15-year history of the DC Universe Movies. The screening was followed by an exciting, informative and oftentimes funny panel discussion amongst actors Aldis Hodge (John Stewart/Green Lantern), Jimmi Simpson (Green Arrow), Jamie Gray Hyder (Hawkgirl) and Brian Bloom (Adam Strange) alongside the filmmaking quartet of executive producer Butch Lukic, director Jeff Wamester and co-screenwriters John Semper Jr. & Ernie Altbacker. Publicist Gary Miereanu served as moderator.
Among the many panel highlights was Aldis Hodge, the voice of John Stewart/Green Lantern in his first animated feature film starring role, surprising the crowd with an impromptu reciting of the Green Lantern Oath, delivered with an impressive intensity and joy. See the attached photo.
During the later part of the panel discussion, WBHE reminded the crowd of the final DC Animated Movie coming this Fall — Batman and Superman: Battle of the Super Sons (10/18/22) — and then rekindled its Comic-Con tradition of announcing its initial slate of DC Universe Movies and DC Animated Movies for the following year. See the attached image. With only names announced thus far, these film titles are coming in 2023:
• Legion of Super-Heroes
• Batman: The Doom That Came To Gotham
• Justice League x RWBY: Super Heroes and Huntsmen, Part One
• Justice League: Warworld
The panelists in attendance include:

Announced during the Green Lantern: Beware My Power movie premiere and discussion panel at the San Diego Comic-Con 2022 pop culture convention on July 22, 2022, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment revealed four upcoming animated releases slated for 2023. The titles, featuring two DC Universe Movie releases and two DC Animated Movie releases, are a mix of original content and adapted material, and spotlight the Justice League and the Legion of Super Heroes, among others. More details are below.
The studio announced Batman: The Doom That Came To Gotham, a loose adaptation of the fan-favorite comic series by Mike Mignola, for the DC Animated Movie line. The acclaimed 2001 comic series offered a Lovecraftian twist on the classic Batman mythos, and was written by Mignola and Richard Pace, with art by Troy Nixey.
The other title set for the DC Animated Movie line is the previously announced RWBY/Justice League crossover animated feature, the full title revealed here to be Justice League x RWBY: Super Heroes and Huntsmen, Part One. More details on that feature are available here.
Lastly, the two DC Universe Movie titles scheduled for 2023 include Justice League: Warworld and Legion of Super Heroes. Both titles are a continuation of the “in-continuity” DC Universe Movie titles that started with Superman: Man of Tomorrow in 2020. While there are no details on Justice League: Warworld, Legion of Super Heroes will be the first time there will be an animated project focused fully on the Legion of Super-Heroes since the animated series ended in 2008. In the film, Supergirl finds she needs a few lessons as she acclimates to Earth…and Superman looks to the heroes of the Legion to get it done.
