An adaptation of Geoff Johns' Superman: Brainiac titled Superman: Unbound has been confirmed, while the event that caused DC's relaunch "The New 52" will be adapted in to a feature film titled Justice League: Flashpoint. More details after the jump.

After Cartoon Network has suspended the DC Nation programming block for the rest of October, we finally have some good superhero animation news for you. Warner Home Video has officially announced their upcoming slate of animated feature films for the next year, while they also give us details on further upcoming titles. This comes straight from New York Comic-Con 2012.

According to WorldsFinest, the adaptation of Geoff Johns and Gary Frank's comic book Superman: Brainiac will officially be called Superman: Unbound, and will be released in Summer 2013, likely to coincide with Zack Snyder's Man of Steel. The final film of 2013 will be called Justice League: Flashpoint, an adaptation of the summer event Flashpoint which caused DC's New 52 relaunch. It's interesting to note that a few months ago, Kevin Conroy confirmed he had been doing voice work for a "movie about The Flash" called Flashpoint. Bruce Timm also noted that he would like to return to the Beyond (Batman Beyond, Superman Beyond, etc) universe some day, and that Grant Morrison's comic material may be used as influence in future titles.

WorldsFinest also added that Spring 2013 will see the release of the animation feature Lego Batman: DC Heroes Unite, which is based off of the fan-favorite Lego Batman video game franchise. Warner Home Video's Gary Minreau then noted that Justice League: Flashpoint will most likely debut at next year's San Diego Comic Con, and that DC Animated Feature Films will likely continue into 2014 beyond, so that studio closure that was earlier announced was nothing to worry about.

With Warner Animation adapting Flashpoint, would you like to see them adapt films from the New 52 continuity? Sound off with your thoughts below.

The Flashpoint one is going to be awesome. CANT WAIT!
soberchimera - 10/13/2012, 12:22 PM
Will Michael Rosenbaum be voicing The Flash? I think they should stick with his take on the character even if they do make it about Barry Allen, its proven to be very popular.

Glad they're still doing animated films. They have made some great ones.
jimpinto24 - 10/13/2012, 12:29 PM
I looking forward to Superman Unbound, and Flash.
UltimaRex - 10/13/2012, 12:29 PM
Well it had to happen. Someone nicked my Superman title Superman Unbound. I've been kicking that around for a decade now. Oh well.

I wish marvel brave up and make some animated tv show and movie as quality as DC. I missed wolverine and the x-men and the amazing spider man I would love to see marvel working on animation
RobLiefeldFan - 10/13/2012, 12:31 PM
we need a soemthing different from dc maybe other than the jl animated movies or the others i would really love them to do rob liefeld's recent run on hawkman because it was actually good even though i preferred his deathstroke run better i think hawkman needs more exposure and he would really be good if they adapt rob'srecent run but i cant wait for flashpoint though and the lego movie i hope channing tatum is superman from what i heard

This is great. I freakin love DC animated films.
DukeAcureds - 10/13/2012, 12:45 PM
Excited about Flashpoint. Most of all, I'm hoping that they use it as a turning point in their DCU-OAM releases, so that all the DVDs that follow will be in a cohesive New DCAU. That would be awesome.
DukeAcureds - 10/13/2012, 12:47 PM
I'm also hoping for a lot of references to past movies in the Pandora bit at the end, a la Turtles Forever.
MisterBabadook - 10/13/2012, 12:49 PM
I'd like to see older stories created first, maybe blended together with new 52 tie-ins. Like BLIND JUSTICE worked in as Flashbacks to BORN TO KILL.

There's a way to make these things work
MJPETTY7 - 10/13/2012, 12:54 PM
Can't wait, these will be awesome!!!
hYPE - 10/13/2012, 12:59 PM
I thought Warner Home Movies were done releasing straight to DVD movies? I honestly thought The Batman Returns Part 2 was the last film to be released.
hYPE - 10/13/2012, 1:00 PM
I'm honestly excited for both! This is actually a good surprise! I'll be buying both!

KNIGHT3000 - 10/13/2012, 2:57 PM
Sounds good, lets hope they do it right...
blueorangeny - 10/13/2012, 3:06 PM
can someone please clear the air. what do you mean Cartoon Network suspended the DC nation hour? The shows are cancelled?
DeadHubris - 10/13/2012, 5:58 PM

Nope. There will Be more.


New Content will be back in 2013.

Finally, we get a Flash animated film! Its technically a Justice League film but the story originates from the Flash comics and I'm hoping the Flash is the most prominent member in this film. Second, I absolutely love Johns' Brainiac graphic novel and I'm glad to see it getting the film treatment.
ShadowOfTheWeb - 10/13/2012, 8:26 PM
Gary Frank's art in Supes Braniac is the bomb. i so hope they replicate the style
Ceejay - 10/13/2012, 8:57 PM
Nightwing animated series in line with old Batman TAS/Batman Beyond/Superman TAS universe.
rbfn04 - 10/13/2012, 11:09 PM
Won1t be watching the Flashpoint one. Don't need to see that BS again.

Johns' Brainiac story was surprisingly fun.
batmitedimension - 10/13/2012, 11:29 PM
I would like a Court of Owls or Death of the Family movie!! I know Death of the Family has barely started, but it already looks epic!

I hope none of the New 52 Superman stuff get adapted because none of them have been great and some are downright crap (looking at you, Superboy).

New 52 I, Vampire, JLDark, and Animal Man/Swamp Thing could be interesting to turn into movies.
DCjohnny - 10/14/2012, 12:06 PM
i am very excited for the flashpoint...... it was one of the best graphic novel i have ever read....
AnungUnRama - 10/14/2012, 12:37 PM
Hnope they take the Flashpoint movie asn an opportunity to reboot their animated "universe" i. e. all animated features they produce after Flashpoint should share one universe. Not as it is now, where each movie has not conection to the next one.
MasterApoc81 - 10/15/2012, 12:07 AM
marvel had some good animation ...oddly enough fox has trouble with the live adaptations of the comic book characters ...but they made some kick ass cartoons....fox xmen was balling in the 90s ...they should have did the movies based off that ....lol fox spiderman was good lol they should just go back to whay works ......i loved how DC just kept it simple added a little graphic changes here and there i love their JL, superman, and batman movies .....marvel should learn from them on that and maybe they can pitch some pointers on the movie end lol ......marvel had a great cartoon and cancelled it called avengers ..earths mightest heroes
