DC Universe to celebrate 10 years of original movies

By Alex Wiggan

We’re going to pre-warn you – if you LOVE DC Universe Original Movies, you’re going to need some spare cash. A lot of spare cash.

To celebrate ten years of DC original animated movies – including the likes of Superman: Doomsday, Justice League: Doom and a particular favourite of ours, Batman: Gotham Knight – Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced it is releasing a special edition set, containing every single DC Universe Original Movie released since 2007. That’s 30 movies!

In a press release, Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing, said:

“It’s been an amazing journey from the initial concept of bringing comic book pages to screen to the completion of 30 animated films spotlighting the mesmerizing characters and stories of the DC library.

“We are proud to celebrate this first decade of filmmaking with an impressive box set filled with exciting extras beyond these stunning films themselves.”

The 32-disc set includes all 30 movies (see list below), as well as five DC Showcase animated shorts – The Spectre, Green Arrow, Jonah Hex, Catwoman and Superman/Shazam: The Return of Black Adam – and a range of special features. It’s also worth noting that both Wonder Woman and Justice League: The New Frontier will be the commemorative editions, not simply the original releases.

DC Universe Original Movies: 10th Anniversary Collection is available in the US via a digital format first (August 15th) and will be available on Blu-ray on November 7th. No news yet about a UK release, so those with multi-region players may need to import this one.

The 30 films included in the set are as follows:

SUPERMAN: DOOMSDAY, JUSTICE LEAGUE: THE NEW FRONTIER, BATMAN: GOTHAM KNIGHT, WONDER WOMAN COMMEMORATIVE EDITION, GREEN LANTERN: FIRST FLIGHT, SUPERMAN/BATMAN: PUBLIC ENEMIES, JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRISIS ON TWO EARTHS, BATMAN: UNDER THE RED HOOD, SUPERMAN/BATMAN: APOCALYPSE, ALL-STAR SUPERMAN, GREEN LANTERN: EMERALD KNIGHTS, BATMAN: YEAR ONE, JUSTICE LEAGUE: DOOM, SUPERMAN VS. THE ELITE, THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS, PART 1, THE DARK KNIGHTS RETURNS, PART 2, SUPERMAN: UNBOUND, JUSTICE LEAGUE: THE FLASHPOINT PARADOX, JUSTICE LEAGUE: WAR, SON OF BATMAN, BATMAN: ASSAULT ON ARKHAM, JUSTICE LEAGUE: THRONE OF ATLANTIS, BATMAN VS. ROBIN, JUSTICE LEAGUE: GODS AND MONSTERS, BATMAN: BAD BLOOD, JUSTICE LEAGUE VS. TEEN TITANS, BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE, JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK, TEEN TITANS: THE JUDAS CONTRACT & BATMAN AND HARLEY QUINN.
