Crisis of Infinite Episodes - New Teen Titans: Utility Player

Death by tofu! Another funny short for the Titans along with the return of the infamous Dr. Light - though after Identity Crisis I am not sure tofu was a fitting enough fate for him. So far, the Titans are 3 for 3 in their reunion tour. If only the tofu had been Bob.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - The Antidote

Enuk chuck! Enter Apache Chief along with Wonder Woman tasked with finding a giant cobra in order to synthesize an antidote from cobras... Sure I guess I can go with that. The cobras alone sold me, but the poison dart flowers were the icing on the cake. So far, the mix of episodes in these all new hours have been a lot of fun. The plots have been pretty ridiculous, but the brisk pace has kept things entertaining. Can't wait to "meet" Samurai. Oh, does "enuk chuck" really translate to "big man" in Apache? and its a good thing his pants grew too without him having to say "big pants."

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Craft (Sun Rattler)

Some magic beans, paper plates, markers and glue = a fun rattling mask. To be honest, I may have to try this with the kids. I will just have to keep it a secret that I got the idea from Aquaman.

Dark Knight Returns Part 1 Blu-Ray Bonus Features

The bonus features on September 25th's animated Batman: The Dark Knight Returns have been announced. Interesting that the bonus episodes are Two-Face parts 1 and 2. Good episodes, but it would have been awesome for them to have included The New Batman Adventures episode Legends of the Dark Knight and The Batman's Artifacts. The Carrie Kelly featurette also sounds interesting and hopefully the voice cast of part 2 will be revealed.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - De-Coder (Medallion)

 First off, really Robin? You couldn't figure out the clues? Also what a stupid set of clues. Medal (-al + al ) + yawn = Medallion. I think that we could have done without the -al + al part. What is the point of the de-coder segments again?

Watch the Official Dark Knight Returns Trailer Now

A couple months back a trailer for The Dark Knight Returns Part 1, DC's next animated feature, leaked online. Although I posted it, I was promptly slapped with a take down notice. FINALLY, the official trailer has been released via MTV Geek. Its pretty amazing - though it should be pointed out that it is not the same as the leaked trailer. The release date has also been listed as September 25. By the way, the leaked DVD cover (which I was also slapped for) has also been confirmed.Check 'em out:

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Tiger on the Loose

Tiger Tiger burning bright, who left your cage door open? Poor Suzy got the blame but teenagers CAN be trusted. So, I guess there were a couple other lessons to be learned. First, never get on a bus without checking for tigers. Second, no matter what Siegfried and Roy tell you, tigers are totally good at not mauling people they love. Third, gazelles are often preferable to horses when in the need for rapid transportation. What a weird episode.

Bat Man of Shanghai Rises

Just one week after the opening of the epic finale to the Dark Knight trilogy, Cartoon Network has aired the final two segments of the marvelous Bat Man of Shanghai trilogy of shorts. Two weeks ago, minds were blown by the stylistic Cat Woman short, and today's Bane and Bat Man shorts were equally impressive. Definitely get them while they are hot.
