The DC Animated Universe

Post by Kei » Thu May 03, 2007 11:16 am

The DC Animated Universe, or DCAU, is a common continuity shared by several shows that aired from 1992 to 2006. It included the following shows:

--Batman: The Animated Series (1992-1995)
--Superman: The Animated Series (1996-2000)
--The New Batman Adventures (1997-1999)
--Batman Beyond (1999-2002)
--Static Shock (2000-2004)
--The Zeta Project (2001-2002)
--Justice League (2001-2004)
--Justice League Unlimited (2004-2006)

Other DC-based shows have intentionally been left out of the DCAU, such as Teen Titans, Legion of Super Heroes and The Batman. Given that the DCAU seems to have ended with the finale of Justice League Unlimited, and that The Batman will feature a new, redesigned version of the Justice League in upcoming seasons, is there any possibility that the DCAU could return? Is there a future for the Justice League, or will we have to be content with the subpar Kids-WB stuff we're getting now?

I really liked:
--Justice League (2001-2004)
--Justice League Unlimited (2004-2006)
as well as Teen Titans.....
But.. there were quite a few fans who were not too happy (me being one of them) with the ending of JLU. It had been promised that a certain relationship would have been brought to a firm resolution by the end of the series.. and that never really happened and Bruce Timm the series creator responded with something to the extent of
" that while he was deliberately ambiguous about the future of their relationship and understood why some fans disliked where it was left at the series finale, it was his opinion that "You can put two and two together and imagine what happens."


Sheesh that was just wimpy....

Superman and Batman weren't bad... but yes, they should have resolved a lot more than they did. Heck, we don't even know if Luthor and Darkcide are dead.
