The next DC animated movie, Batman: Assault on Arkham, is currently available digitally and the Blu-ray/DVD will go on sale next week (you can read our review here). To help ease the wait, we thought it would be fun to reflect on two of DC's excellent animated projects: Superman vs. The Elite and Wonder Woman. While Assault on Arkham juggles a variety of characters, these two features focused solely on their famous leads and both delivered hugely entertaining rides.
Directed by Lauren Montgomery, Wonder Woman proves that yes, a Wonder Woman movie can work! Diana's voiced by Kerri Russell and the narrative doesn't shy away from the iconic character's mythology. It embraces the key elements of her tale, focuses on the character's depth, and produces plenty of fun and exciting scenes. Meanwhile, Superman vs. the Elite is directed by Michael Chang and is inspired by the terrific ACTION COMICS #775. If you think Kal-El is just a lame or boring boy scout, this is a story you seriously need to experience. The movie places his morals front and center and will help you appreciate why one of the most powerful characters in the DC universe acts the way he does. Obviously, both are more than worthy of your time and attention, but which one do you prefer and why?
Don't worry, you have plenty of time to reflect on these animated movies! The poll will stay open until Friday morning (ET), so that should give you more than enough room to watch these movies and really give the comparison some proper thought. If you do happen to have a preference, we want to hear why! What is it about the experience that made you prefer it over the other? Is it a specific scene? Do you think the narrative is more gripping? Perhaps you thought one was simply more exciting than the other? After you vote, be sure to let us know in the comments below! So, which DC animated movie will take the victory, Viners?
