Justice League Dark Writer Teases the Future of DC Animated Movies

Last week, the digital release of Justice League Dark: Apokolips War marked the conclusion of the DC Animated Movie Universe as we’ve come to know it. But even though this phase of the DCAMU is coming to an end, it sounds like there are big animated projects on the horizon, which screenwriter Ernie Altbacker hinted at during a recent interview with CBR.

“I think that the way we ended it… it’s really like a tough balancing act,” said Altbacker. “It ends something on a bittersweet yet hopeful note, and I’ll just say, people who are saying, ‘Oh man, we’re not going to get anymore of these!’ …you’re not losing something, you’re gaining something new.”

In addition to his work as a co-writer on Apokolips War, Altbacker also wrote the scripts for original Justice League Dark, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract, and Batman: Hush.

So far, the only animated DC movie in the works appears to be Superman: Man of Tomorrow. That film will feature the voices of Darren Criss (Clark Kent/Superman), Alexandra Daddario (Lois Lane), and Zachary Quinto (Lex Luthor). WB hasn’t set a release date yet. However, it will presumably arrive sometime later this year.

Justice League Dark: Apokolips War will hit 4K, Blu-ray, and DVD on May 19.
