SDCC: Two-Part Death/Return of Superman Headlines 2018 Crop of DC Animated Movies!

That's right Warner Bros. Animation is giving another try at the Death/Return of Superman along with Gotham by Gaslight, and Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay.

During the panel (and assuming after the screening) of Batman & Harley Quinn, Bruce Timm and the folks at Warner Bros. Animation revealed the 2018 batch of animated DC films. 

The first one (which isn't a surprise since it was already leaked via box art of Batman & Harley Quinn spoiling it) is Gotham by Gaslight. The next is Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay (no word if it's a sequel to the previous animated film, the lone "New 52" animated movie, or it's own beast), and finally a TWO-PART adaptation of the Death/Return of Superman.

Yes, you read that right. They're going back and redoing it (the more mature themed DC Animated movies were kicked off by 2007's Superman: Doomsday. This time it'll be a more faithful adaptation of the story. Which probably means we'll be having the Eradicator, Steel, Superboy, and oh yes THE CYBORG SUPERMAN in animated form (which the previous adaptation DID NOT have). 

This was again confirmed by DC Comics official Twitter as well:



So you can expect to see all FOUR films sometime in 2018. Now if only Warner Bros. Animation does what we all want to see done next. Green Lantern: Sinestro Corps War. GET ON THAT PLEASE! Or Batman: No Man's Land.. cause REASONS!
