DC Beefs Animated Slate to 4 Movies Next Year; Featuring BATMAN: HUSH, WONDER WOMAN and More


Last night, DC Entertainment held the world premiere of its latest animated movie, The Death of Superman, at San Diego Comic-Con. During the panel, DC announced the 2019 slate of original animated movies, but with a twist. While DC normally does three movies per year, 2019 will have four films.

  • As previously announced, Reign of the Supermen will be released early next year. This film is the direct sequel to The Death of Superman, fulfilling the promise of a two-part adaptation of the iconic storyline. 
  • Later next spring, DC will release Justice League vs. The Fatal Five. The film, which has an original story, will bring the supervillain group The Fatal Five back to the spotlight. Originally consisting of Tharok, Emerald Empress, Validus, Mano, and the Persuader, the Fatal Five is typically associated with the Legion of Super-Heroes. No other details on the movie are known at this time.
  • This next movie is a big one, as the beloved storyline Batman: Hush is finally getting an animated adaptation. It will be released next summer, and it will mark the villain Hush's debut in a DC Universe movie.
  • And finally, next year will see the release of Wonder Woman: Bloodlines, which will be Diana Prince's first solo movie since 2009. Nothing else is known at this time. After the smash success of Wonder Woman last year, making another animated film was only logical. Thankfully, it's happening.
We'll learn more and more about these movies in the coming months, so stay tuned.
