    If they put Swamp Thing in here, the perfect intro song...

    I hope they have the original JL in it even a small part like they did with JL vs TT

    I'm so amped for this. As long as Swamp Thing and Constantine are in it, consider this bought!

    I think it would be a missed opportunity if Swamp Thing wasn't in it.

    really hope its not part of the 52 animated universe but a stand alone, much like Gods and Monsters.

    Also hope its Timm's art style

    The JLD was an idea created specifically for the New 52 reboot, so I imagine it will be connected.

    I just hope its successful because everytime these animated movies go outside the box (Batman or Superman related) we never get follow ups because they dont sell well.

    Also I think not going the live action route is a HUGE mistake.
    DC can finally get the jump on Marvel venturing into the horror element of the comic universe and be original.

    The script is still there. Its' not as though they've burn't Del Toro's script. Should they wish to get a live action movie going it won't be difficult.

    Hopefully if the animated movie does well enough, that will spark some WB executive to dig around and find that script.

    Agreed. On the whole I like DC's approach to that world more than Marvel's. Hopefully this is an Assault on Arkham to Suicide Squad situation.

    This whole shared universe can be a gold mine for DC and Marvel.
    But if DC gets bold and tries a twist to their shared universe idea with the horror themed characters that may open the flood gates further if its done right.
    They could have a strong presence in the superhero & horror movie market all at once.

    I swear , if this ends up being a copout from doing the live action movie, i'm gonna be mad. However, i'll try and keep my hopes up.

    Nah, man. This is a way to test the waters, thats all. They want to see how hungry the fanbase really is for this.

    Believe me, if this sells well. We're getting a live action movie.

    Not sure if the animated film helps or hurts now.

    This is a movie to test the waters and build awareness, just like how they made a Batman movie with the Suicide Squad and Justice League movie centering around Flash and Aquaman. I'm sure they're going to position and market this as a Justice League movie first and foremost (and who knows, maybe the movie will incorporate the League meeting these supernatural characters).

    I enjoyed the comic run that this film is based on. If Warner Bros. is willing to put for the same effort they did with the Flashpoint adaptation, then JLD has much promise. Constantine is one of my favorite Vertigo characters, so here is hoping that he is handled well.

    If you know that to be fact Mr. Allen, I hope then it is the foundation for a live action version in the DC pipeline.
