Four DC Comics Animated Movies Announced At SDCC

After the premiere of Batman and Harley Quinn at San Diego Comic-Con, DC Comics has announced four upcoming animated films to be released between 2018 and 2019.

The next film to be released is Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay. It’ll be an original story and the first Suicide Squad story to take place in the current DC Animated Universe continuity. The previous film that featured the Suicide Squad was Batman: Arkham Assault, but it took place within the Arkham video games universe.

This adaptation promises to be more faithful to the source material than the 2007 film Superman: Doomsday, in which the story had to be compressed and simplified as a consequence of its running time.
