CNET continues its woeful and error-filled coverage of all-things comics with its latest story about forthcoming straight-to-DVD animated movies from DC. Following on Marvel’s success with animated Avengers and Iron Man movies, DC is getting into the game by producing its own straight-to-DVD releases.
Batman and Superman are no strangers to the big screen, but their animated counterparts have yet to step in the limelight. This September, comic-giant DC Comics will be changing its path by releasing its first animated movie, Superman Doomsday, based on the 1993 storyline involving the man of steel.
Well yeah, I guess . . . as long as you completely ignore theatrical releases of DC properties such as 1993s animated Batman: Mask of the Phantasm or the much better Return of the Joker (especially the not-really-appropriate-for-kids uncut version).
Ah, but this is the same CNET that a couple years ago lamented that no comics company had released their back catalogs on CD or DVD, despite the fact that at the time Marvel had released several DVD-based compilations of thousands of digitized comics of several of its properties.
I guess CNET must block Google so the editors and reporters are unable to do any fact checking on this sort of stuff.
