SDCC 2009: DCU in Animation (and Nightwing News!)

OK, so I saw the sneak peek of GREEN LANTERN: FIRST FLIGHT. It's decent, but a little flat compared to WONDER WOMAN and SUPERMAN: DOOMSDAY. It didn't have the charm or spark of either of those movies.

But best news? Scroll down for some information about Nightwing in animation.....

ENI reports: " The writer, Alan Burnett, had several ideas for how to approach this origin of Green Lantern but many of the stories simply got too complicated. He decided to take it down to a basic police story, in the style of Training Day. Sinestro is assigned Green Lantern to break in as a rookie partner and he tries to sway him to his twisted vision of the Guardians and the Corps. It's that dynamic that drive the plot of the movie."

They also reports: "Superman/Batman - Public Enemies, is the next DCU animated feature. September 29, 2009, it will be available on Blue-Ray, DVD and On Demand. Kevin Conroy is the voice of Batman and Tim Daily is Superman. Power Girl will be in this feature, in one of her few animated appearances. Clancy Brown plays Lex Luthor."

They screened some footage from that one, and it looks pretty good! They did a nice job of evoking Ed
Ed McGuiness' art style. Also, Starfire is in this one, as part of Captain Atom's takedown team.

Update: Here an image of animated Starfire from CBR:

A fan asked about the possibility of a Nightwing animated feature, and "
Bruce TImm says it's even money that there will be Nightwing in the DC animated future."

    It'll probably be a while before we see Nightwing though. Which sucks, cause I want him now!

    I wonder if they'll have him, Robin, Batgirl, Huntress, Krypto, Superboy and Supergirl in this SUPERMAN/BATMAN movie. They have Power Girl, Black Lightning, Starfire, Captain Atom and Toyman. I really hope for the Supes & Bats to show up as well.

    Yay!! Nightwing animated!!

    It's unfortunate that Starfire only appears as cameo, not playing a real role... but that's something, anyway XD

    They don't have the Atom, Black Lightning or Metamorpho, do they? Probably not.
