Warner Bros. Announces Massive 30-Film Box Set For DC Animated Movies
To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the DC Universe Original Movies, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment today announced a 30-movie box set due in stores this November.
DC Universe Original Movies: 10th Anniversary Collection, a comprehensive box set of all 30 films, 5 animated shorts, new special features and exclusive collectible items coming November 7, will also be available on Digital starting August 15. August is a busy month for DC and WBHE, with The CW's DC superhero shows hitting DVD and Blu-ray that month.
"It's been an amazing journey from the initial concept of bringing comic book pages to screen to the completion of 30 animated films spotlighting the mesmerizing characters and stories of the DC library," said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing. "We are proud to celebrate this first decade of filmmaking with an impressive box set filled with exciting extras beyond these stunning films themselves."
Launched in 2007 with the release of Superman: Doomsday, the DC Universe Original Movies are based on or inspired by storylines and/or characters from within the ever-expanding DC library.
Produced by DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation, the stories range from films based upon iconic DC Comics stories (Superman: Doomsday, Justice League: The New Frontier, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Batman: The Killing Joke) to films inspired by themes from within DC history (Batman vs. Robin was inspired by "The Court of Owls," Superman vs. The Elite was inspired by "What's so Funny About Truth, Justice and the American Way?") to original stories (Justice League: Gods and Monsters, Batman and Harley Quinn).
The DC Universe Original Movies: 10th Anniversary Collection will include all 30 films released as of the time of the set's release – from Superman: Doomsday to the all-new Batman and Harley Quinn, as well as newly released commemorative editions of Wonder Woman and Justice League: The New Frontier.
The 32-disc box set will also include all five "DC Showcase" animated shorts – The Spectre, Green Arrow, Jonah Hex, Catwoman and Superman/Shazam: The Return of Black Adam. The details of the special features will be announced later this summer.
