Yeah, All-Star Superman was pretty much just a very condensed form of the comic version right? Or so I've heard. I'm the opposite of you with DKR - watched the movie, haven't read it completely. I do know that they removed all of Batman's internal monologues. It makes a few scenes (like the "this is a good death..." race car scene) seem a little more random without them, but I loved it regardless.
I'm shocked that they're giving Aquaman his own animated movie. I guess they got over their fear of doing non-Batman/Superman/JL movies. Hopefully it sells well enough to warrant other solo animated projects, although honestly my greatest wish is that they would release a Young Justice movie to properly end the series. I'm sure they could rework it so that knowing all of the history isn't NECESSARY. I'm just dying to see The Team work with the Justice League to take down Darkseid and The Light/Vandal Savage.
And I'd actually be cool with the Arkham project being a retelling of the first game... as long as they don't make any bad choices with the casting. I really don't like the guy they've hired to play Batman in Flashpoint Paradox, War, and now Son of Batman. Ideally they'd get Conroy, Hamill and everyone else back.
Yeah, All-Star Supes just basically took all the non Lois and Luthor related storylines (Bizzaro and Jimmy Olsen) and just focused on the rest of the comic, but changed some dialouge and scenes in the last 10 minutes, but still overall was just a condensed version of the series.
Plus I wouldn't mind a continuation of Young Justice, though I'd also like the seasons to be on goddamn blu ray. In anycase, the Aquaman movie seems to be the only one that's been confirmed. The rest of the ones rumored or hinted at from cons last year include Sinestro Corps, Green Arrow and Superman: Red Son.
I Think Conroy for Arkham Asylum animated makes sense, since he was the voice, but Hamill...eh. Hamill has stated that he's retiring from being the Joker unless they do The Killing Joke as an animated movie (which would blow my goddamn mind if they did it page for page), though Bruce Timm has stated that's one of the one's he wants to do and after Dark Knight Returns there isn't much in the way of stopping it. So that's only way we'll hear definitive Joker again.
Started reading East of West. That comic is fantastic. It's hard to really describe the comic without ruining any plot points but it follows the four horsemen after pretty much in a post apocalyptic world. Death from the four horseman is pretty much a badass cowboy.
My goals this year is to collect all of Manhattan Projects, Mind Mgmt and if possible all of Saga. It's crazy how much Saga goes for now. Saga #1 goes for more than #1 of Fables on ebay which is insane (I own all of fables too).
It's always a weird nice feeling when I know my comics are worth money despite me possibly never selling them. Though yeah, East of West is awesome. I Think I enjoy Hickman's Image stuff more than his Marvel stuff, it's too bad he didn't have more of a hand in writing God is Dead because it had potential, but goddamn you can tell he just gave the writer a concept and didn't do much else.
