Teen Titans: The Judas Contract is a thoroughly entertaining addition to the DC Animated line-up and a step forward from some of their recent lackluster titles, a leap above The Killing Joke and compared with the DC Animated Universe ones, this is probably top five (without looking at my rankings).

Batman: The Brave and the Bold was a fantastic and incredibly fun show displaying the light-hearted side of DC Comics and often a callback to the old Super Friends animated series from the 1970s.

Justice League Dark is a middle-of-the-road entry into the DC Animated Universe. It’s also a bit inside baseball in that probably die-hard fans of the comics will get something out if it while others will find it crowded and the magical elements even made it harder to follow.

Suicide Squad clearly wasn’t the home-run the DCEU needed as demonstrated by both critics and some audiences but although it is very flawed, particularly with the screenplay, I still found it enjoyable if only to see some iconic characters sharing wonderful chemistry.

Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders was certainly an interesting concept but perhaps one a decade or so too late and it was pretty distracting hearing a nearly 90-year-old Adam West and a 70-year-old Burt Ward voicing characters in their 30s and teens, respectively. Still, there is a modest amount of entertainment value.

Gotham: The Complete Second Season is another solid year for Fox with some compelling plotlines and although I think they might be overdoing it delving into Batman’s rogues galleries, it is at least in keeping with the Rise/Wrath of the Villains stories and the casting is also well done.

While Batman Unlimited: Mechs vs. Mutants is still a way to sell toys, it is an entertaining flick that takes me back to watching cartoons on a brisk, fall or winter Saturday morning. The animation looks fine and the voice talent pales in comparison with the big dogs, but for kids and fans of Batman, it is a fun and quick watch.

“Supergirl”: The Complete First Season has its issues, especially early on, yet as the season wore on, the writing got better, particularly the dialogue. But from beginning to end, the casting was pitch perfect starting with Melissa Benoist who is both beautiful and charismatic to pull off a character like Supergirl/Kara.

The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice: Ultimate Edition does plenty things to correct the hacked up theatrical version though if you didn’t like the plot the first go-around, the UE won’t change your mind. For myself, as a fan of Batman in particular, found it entertaining mainly for Ben Affleck’s portrayal as the Dark Knight and a nice glimpse of what’s to come for Gadot’s Wonder Woman.

LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League: Gotham City Breakout is pretty much in line with their other entries: the storytelling isn’t great, animation standard and the focus is primarily geared towards kids though adults will find it semi-entertaining.

LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League: Cosmic Clash isn’t as good as its predecessors, and obviously a far cry from the LEGO feature films, but it’s a fun movie especially for younger viewers and at only 78-minutes (w/ credits), it at least flies by.

Note: This opinion piece may include major spoilers (based on trailers and online rumors/conjecture) to Batman v Superman.

“This may be the only thing I do that matters.”

For whatever reason, this line struck a chord with me upon hearing it in one of the TV spots that aired recently on Spike. It got my mind working that the Bruce Wayne in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be something different than we’ve seen before. This Bruce Wayne could be more introspective not questioning the need for a Batman but instead a man who has spent his life living in the shadows, taking out Gotham City scum, seeing a friend/ward/sidekick beaten and killed by a psychotic serial killer clown and leading to it all, the murder of his parents right in front of his eyes.
