Just revealed at DC Comics own site are the first official images from two upcoming DC Nation shorts featuring The Doom Patrol and Animal Man and both look fantastic. Although we have known The Doom Patrol would get a set of shorts since the first trailers for the animation block, this is the first look we have of Robot Man and Elasti-Girl (who had the name long before The Incredibles). Negative Man could be glimpsed in some of the previous promotions. The team looks amazing! Of course, this will be the third time The Doom Patrol has made it to the small screen with previous appearances on Teen Titans and Batman: The Brave and the Bold.
The first I learned of Animal Man shorts was just last weekend from Wondercon. The shorts will in fact be the heroes first on screen appearance ever and I am glad that deserving characters like Animal Man are finally getting some venue, and again, this still looks great. While the DC Nation slate is pretty much book for the rest of April with follow-ups for Plastic Man, Baby Superman of Tokyo, and Aardman's DC's World's Funnest, Its likely either or both of these shorts could premier in April and I for one can't wait!
