Warning: Animated blood, gore and violence.

Earlier this year it was confirmed that Bruce Timm was returning to do a set of 3 original shorts to be the lead-in for DC Comics new Justice League: Gods and Monsters made for DVD animated feature film. The first short features Batman, the 2nd and 3rd show Superman and Wonder Woman in a cutting-edge alternate universe style. Yesterday it was announced that Timm has been signed by Machinima to do a full 10 episode season of shorts for 2016 with potential for more seasons.

So far like the twist with the characters, something of a unique version of the characters we love. Can't wait for the feature with all three together, especially a superman ready to make the hard decisions like he did in bomb. That was truly haunting and reminds us we are out of our comfort zones with the characters.

It not only establishes this version from others, but heavily reinforce that anything goes now, that we will see new story directions we couldn't see with the versions we've come to know & expect how things turn out.

I especially love how we didn't just get new versions of Clark Kent, Diana Prince and Bruce Wayne here. It makes me look forward to both the animated movie and the full-season of shorts (announced with new heroes) for next year.With Superman it's great seeing his humanity but also his rationality to sacrifice the few to save the many. It's what you'd expect in General Zod's son.
