DC’s next animated movies include Batman, Suicide Squad, and two-part Superman story

Tonight at the San Diego Comic-Con premiere of Batman and Harley Quinn, Warner Bros. officially announced a bunch of upcoming DC animated movies for 2018 and beyond.

First is Batman: Gotham by Gaslight, which leaked out earlier this month. That will be followed in the spring of 2018 by Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay, the first Suicide Squad movie set within the DC Universe Original Movies’ shared universe. (2014’s Batman: Assault on Arkham featured the Suicide Squad but was set within the Arkham video game universe.)

Later in 2018 will be Death of Superman, the first part of the two-parter. Warner Bros. promises this will be much more faithful to the source material than 2007’s Superman: Doomsday, which left out a lot of fan favorite moments in order to fit within its 75-minute runtime. Part two, Reign of the Supermen, will be released in early 2019.
