  1. As a comic fan I loved this film. And the fact that it will never get a live action adaptation means its only one we will get 😀

      Hey Tim! Thanks for the comment!

      I absolutely agree! It’s one of the best comic book adaptations I’ve ever seen, both in terms of storytelling AND art

      I feel that with these expanded live action shared Universes, these one shot Graphic Novels should be looked at for self contained individual stories of certain super hero characters.

      • You know what I really want them to get right with the Superman/batman film, the banter between the two characters, its always so great to see in the animated films and tv shows. Its something they have to get right 😀

        • Shah Shahid says:

          I agree completely. I expect more of a conflicted banter though, Batman looking down on Supes, Superman condemning Bats’ way of doing thins, etc. Kinda like Captain America & Iron Man in THE AVENGERS. Ending with mutual respect.

    I love this film. I just re-read the books, myself and I am always moved by the material and I think the animated movie does it justice on so many levels!

    DC has been upstaging Marvel on the animated film front of late. I think it’s because they favor the established story arcs over newly written material which is a good move on their part.

    Great job, Shah!

      Thanks Vic. Love getting your opinion on the comics stuff!
      I honestly think that DC needs to hand over the reigns to their established live action universes, be it TV or movie, to the guys at the animated side of things. They are able to create quite a good shared Universe through the animated films. And it’s the closest thing DC has to a shared Universe right now. At least as consultants. It’s further sad to see DC’s lack of success on the live action front, given their awe-mazing-ness on the animated side of things. Bah.
