Justice League and Batman Beyond DVD Hope

The always-excellent has given hope to fans of JUSTICE LEAGUE and BATMAN BEYOND fans: " Industry sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, have passed rumors on to us that Warner Home Video has begun projects to create multi-disc ("Season 1" or "Volume 1") in-order packages of each of these beloved animated series. But don't expect them right away! If things go well, we'll see them around the middle of the year [2006]"

Although the site cautions that this is a "rumor mill" post only, it does seem promising. I would guess that DVD sets of BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES and SUPERMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES have sold well enough. Fans of Bruce Timm's animated interpretations of the DCU characters have been thunderstruck at Warner Home Video's marketing of their animated-action stable. Single-disk releases. Poor packaging. A disgraceful "3 episodes" per disk. Looks like they are finally listening!

On a sidenote, JUSTICE LEAGUE UNLIMITED has been amazing the last two seasons. It certainly deserves a lavish DVD treatment. Here's hoping for commentaries and extras!
