Earlier tonight, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment held a panel and a world premiere screening for their upcoming animated adventure Batman: Assault on Arkham at Comic-Con. During the panel, the studio announced the new titles that will debut in 2015, Batman Vs. Robin and Justice League: Gods and Monsters.
Bruce W. Timm will return to direct Batman Vs. Robin, which will also feature the Court of Owls. While no story details were given, it's believed that this will be an origin story featuring Talon and the Court of Owls, possibly adapted straight from Scott Snyder's comic book. In Court of Owls, Batman and Robin don't actually square off against one another, although there is a bit of tension between the duo and Nightwing. It's believed that this may also be a completely original story based on those characters, but that has not been confirmed.
The second movie is Justice League: Gods and Monsters, which will also be written and directed by Bruce W. Timm, and is an original story that isn't based on an existing comic book. It wasn't revealed which Gods and Monsters the Justice League heroes will be facing, but hopefully the studio reveals more details in the near future.
Both of these projects will come after Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, which we reported in June will be the next DC Universe Animated Original Movie after Batman: Assault on Arkham, which will be released on Blu-ray and DVD August 12.
