‘Superman/Batman: Public Enemies’ To Be Next DC Animated Movie

For those of us who have been continuously blown away by Warner Premiere and DC Comics’ line of animated, direct-to-DVD and Blu-ray features thus far, and likewise, have been waiting to hear what other classic tales the studio has in store for us post-“Green Lantern: First Flight,” that wait is over.

It looks like Harry Knowles over at AICN got his “grubby hands” (his words, not ours!) on the scoop that “Superman/Batman: Public Enemies” will indeed be the followup to Green Lantern’s feature film debut. After the jump, we’ve got the official logo for the flick as well as a synopsis, in case you missed the original Jeph Loeb/Ed McGuinness comic series.

From the company press release: “United States President Lex Luthor uses the oncoming trajectory of a kryptonite asteroid to frame Superman and declare a $1 billion bounty on the heads of the Man of Steel and his “partner in crime” Batman. Super heroes and super villains alike launch a relentless pursuit of Superman and Batman, who must unite – and recruit super help – to stave off the action-packed onslaught, stop the asteroid, and uncover Luthor’s devious plot to take command of far more than North America.”

According to AICN, legendary animator Bruce Timm will once again serve as an executive producer on “Superman/Batman” and the film is currently in production, looking at a Fall 2009 release date.
