While the DC Cinematic Universe lags behind their Marvel counterpart, they have managed to correct one glaring oversight of the more successful brand: a female-led superhero movie.
A new series from Bruce Timm, the guy that brought us the Batman, Superman, and Justice League cartoons from the 90’s and early 2000’s. This is an extremely dark take on the classic trio of Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. While not rated in the usual film sense, I would put these in the PG-13 category (if not higher in some situations).
Each episode runs about six minutes. When the series wraps in July, a Direct-to-DVD movie will be released.
This weekend we have a review of another of the more recent DC Universe animated features, in Superman/Batman: Apocalypse. Or, as it probably should have been titled – The Girl From Krypton.
