Bruce Timm Returns To DC Animation As A Director – Then Again (Updated)

Justice-League-Unlimited-Bruce-TimmThough there were many large announcements at the convention last weekend, the one that will make most DC Animation fans smile is that Bruce Timm is returning. The co-creator of Batman: The Animated Series has agreed to direct the upcoming Justice League: Gods And Monsters original movie. Reports say this is an original story from Timm and has nothing to do with the 2001 comic JLA: Gods And Monsters by Dan Jolley and Josh Krach.

The new Timm lead Justice League movie will come after the soon to be released Batman: Assault On Arkham, the currently in production Justice League: Throne Of Atlantis and the newly announced Batman Vs. Robin.

Batman Vs Robin is loosely based on Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's recent Batman: The Court Of Owls and is a follow up to the previously released Son Of Batman animated movie.

Update – We are getting conflicting word about the above story. James Tucker, supervising producer of DC Animation has claimed the above information is a misquote in these following tweets. Most comic/entertainment sites seem to have picked up on this misquoted story (including us).



So what we know now is that Batman Vs Robin is in continuity with Son Of Batman but has nothing to do with the Court Of Owls and Justice League: Gods And Monsters is an original story by Alan Burnett and directed by Sam Liu.
