This is not a joke! Kevin Smith was told by a reliable source that some sort of sequel to Batman: TAS is coming to HBO Max around 2022!!!
What's on your mind?
Hey I'm not an expert on Static but I'm pretty sure on Ebon's page it's suppose to say "Bang Baby" and not "gang banger"
If not than... Well, I wouldn't put it past DC.

As a few of you may know, I released how I interpret the DCAU continuity in a different page here.
This is my new tiers of continuity:
P-Canon (Primary): All animated properties (television shows, feature films, shorts) This is the main level of canon and cannot be contradicted by any of the lower levels.
S-Canon (Secondary): All tie-in books (comic series, novelizations)
T-Canon (Tertiary): All the animated guide books and Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker - The Original Screenplay.
Again, I'd like to give thanks to the Star Wars version of continuity for making this possible.
It was a great movie. However, it was a little dark. The flashback sequence was gritty, but since it was the uncut version, I saw the LESS horrifying version of The Joker’s death in 1999. But I’ll never forget that spine-shivering narration The Joker provided during the “Our Family Memories” sequence...
“I'll begin with how I peeled back the layers of the boy's mind. Well, he bravely tried to fight it at first. You would have been proud to see him so strong! But all too soon the serums and the shocks took their toll. And the dear lad began to share such secrets with me. Secrets that are mine alone to know...
It's true, Batsy. I know everything. And like the kid who peeks at his Christmas presents, I must admit, it's sadly anticlimactic. Behind all the Sturm and batarangs, you're just a little boy in a playsuit, crying for Mommy and Daddy. It'd be funny, if it weren't so pathetic.
Oh, what the heck! I'll laugh anyway. Ahahahahaha!”
To add insult to injury, an equally as scary scene appeared near the end of the movie: where Joker was wondering where to begin making his smiley face, he was actually planning on starting it either at the hospital, which was where Dana was at the time due to Ghoul injuring her, or at TERRY’S HOUSE, which meant killing Terry’s mother and his little brother.
And to rub salt in the wound and add some lemon juice on top of THAT, Joker said if he started at Wayne Manor, he would’ve gotten the other spots he planned to start the laser’s path to destruction at ANYWAY. Return of the Joker was probably the darkest DC Animated Movie ever, and for good reason. It’s gritty, spine-chilling, and you never know who’s going to possibly get killed next. It’s a scary movie. But that’s why I like it so much. Also, the final battle in the movie? Probably the best one in the entire DC Animated Universe.
And I have to say: out of all the Batman: The Animated Series episodes I’ve seen (Almost Got ‘Im, the Two Face 2 parter and this episode), Growing Pains is my favorite. For those of you who haven’t watched it yet, I’d recommend you do so. It’s a great Robin-centric episode, and probably the best episode in the entire show.
I feel like we should reverse the order of the infobox pics. I think it's better to have the first thing you see on the page be the character's most recent appearance. And it would just be a simple edit to the source if we wanted to do it.
I created this.

I am already doubting my existence.

Recently, I've read the Star War interpretation of canon, where each form of Star Wars took place in different levels of canon, but overall took place in the same continuity.
Taking inspiration for that, I've set up my own template for the DCAU's often contradicting canon:
T-canon - Television series in the franchise
F-canon - Feature films in the franchise
C-canon - Comic series/novelizations in the franchise.
As with the Star Wars guideline, the top select overrides any contradictions in the selections for below, while all of them take place in the same universe.

Aren't Batman & Harley Quinn and Justice League vs the Fatal Five DC Animated Universe canon?
In the spirit of the holidays, I'd like to take a moment to appreciate one of the best episodes of Justice League, the Christmas special, Comfort and Joy. This is one of the best individual examples of how powerful the DC Animated Universe's writing is.
The idea of a Justice League Christmas special is admittedly a weird one, and it could EASILY have been screwed up. What, are they gonna fight an evil Santa Claus? That worked on Teen Titans GO!, sure, but in the DCAU? Gimme a break. Surprisingly, no. There were no gimmicks, no forced "we gotta save Christmas" plot, no fake-ass moral at the end. It's just the League trying to celebrate the holidays, or, in the Flash's case, help others celebrate it. It perfectly captures the spirit of the holidays in just being low-key and simple.
The fight with the Ultra-Humanite isn't for the sake of Christmas or the fate of humanity. It's just to get some orphans a toy. J'onn going to the Kent farm isn't to protect them from Starro or something. He's going because Superman wants him to have a really happy holiday. All three plots in this special are terrific because they aren't big or loud (well, the Sheyara/John plot is, but it still fits, since there's no real conflict), they're small and quiet. That scene of J'onn sitting at the table and talking with the Kents is so sweet and so wonderful because not only is such a tragic character getting such a sweet moment, but it's just nice and small, giving you a warm, fuzzy feeling (I love that Clark is so wholesome he still thinks Santa Claus is real, that's both adorable and hilarious). It's also just hilarious, fascinating, and heartwarming to see these relatable, interesting, and memorable characters in such relaxed environments.
And on top of all that, we see how much of heroes the League are. Think about it. Any superhero show or film can show a superhero stop an alien invasion, punch a terrorist, what have you. Not many show them helping kids believe in Santa, help their friends appreciate the holidays, get a toy for some orphans. Even fewer would show a villain concede to a fight just because it's Christmas. Really think about that. The fact that a great enemy of our heroes, one with such hatred for his rival, would stop fighting him in the spirit of the holiday to help some little children in need. THAT is powerful, and it just warms my heart to the core.
All in all, even if you don't like superheroes or Justice League for whatever reason, Comfort and Joy is a Christmas masterpiece that I watch every year, to endless delight. This is an episode unlike any other, full of joy, wonder, and kindness. Having just watched it again, I can safely say you should definitely check it out, or rewatch it if you already have. It's chock-full of the feels, and you will not regret it. Happy holidays, whatever you celebrate, and have a better year than this one come January.
