The good people at Warner Bros. Animation, who have a sterling track record when it comes to their animated DC properties, are currently hard at work on an animated Deathstroke film.

 

It joins a currently unannounced slate of animated features they’ve lined up that includes:

  • A Two-Part Adaptation of The Long Halloween
  • Superman: Red Son
  • A Batman Beyond Movie

 

These kinds of films take a long time to put together and I don’t see them announcing any of them until San Diego Comic-Con. Could be longer. With a back-catalogue of “event” films like the ones listed above, they may space things out to spread the wealth. Only time will tell how rapid fire they plan to release them all.

 

So there’s a wait ahead of us, but it’s cool to know that Deathstroke is going to get some kind of movie in the next couple of years. I know a few of the actors they’ve cast already, but I’m going to wait to publish that list until it fills out a little more.

Deathstroke is coming to the CW Digital platform CW Seed. During the CW upfront presentation, the network’s President Mark Pedowitz unveiled two upcoming series for CW Seed, animated series Deathstroke, centered on the DC superhero, and The Pledge, which comes from the producers of the Saw horror franchise.

 

Deathstroke follows in the tradition of CW Seed’s Vixen and The Ray animated series.

 

The announcement of the Deathstroke animated series follows the introduction of the character, the fan-favorite assassin and archenemy of Teen Titans leader Grayson, on the live-action DC Universe series Titans, where he is played by Esai Morales.

 

The character is well known to fans of the popular Teen Titans animated series from Cartoon Network as well as the show’s 2018 tie-in feature film Teen Titans Go! to the Movies. Deathstroke has also been portrayed by Manu Bennett in 36 episodes of The CW series Arrow while Joe Manganiello (True Blood) appeared as the assassin in the 2017 feature film Justice League but only with an uncredited cameo.

So this will be like Vixen: The Movie, Ray & The Freedom Force and then Constantine: City of Demons where they first publish a series of short videos. Then combine them into a single movie.

This may end up on the new CW Seed Live streaming platform.

CW Seed to Launch Live Linear Channel

Quote

The CW’s content cousin, CW Seed, is getting a live linear streaming channel, on which original content will exist.

 

The CW’s content delivery strategy is about to get an upgrade in the streaming department, with the announcement of CW Seed Live.

In a content partnership with PeopleTV, The CW will unveil CW Seed Live, eyeing a launch for late fall, reports Deadline. It will manifest as an expanded, 24/7 live-streaming linear take on CW Seed, the 2014-launched à la carte streaming offshoot of the network, compatible on most devices, which houses a handful of original content mostly connected to the DC Arrowverse shows, along with random – often other-network – catalogue content.

CW Seed Live will be the home to some yet-to-be-announced original content, which, as the report teases, will range from documentary series to offerings in the supernatural genre. Additionally, like its platform cousin, Seed Live will not require a subscription, and will be viewable for free, though ad-supported.

Of course, you should also expect to see airings of existing CW Seed content, which consists of animated Arrowverse offerings like the recently-announced Deathstroke: Knights and Dragons, along with Vixen, Freedom Fighters: The Ray and Constantine: City of Demons. Plus, there is an eclectic mix of back catalogue shows (many of which originally aired on other networks) like NBC’s 2014 Constantine series (on which Matt Ryan first played the role) as well as Birds of Prey, Blade: The Series (yes, a Marvel property), forgotten genre offerings like Alcatraz, Ringer, Pushing Daisies, The Secret Circle and Moonlight, as well as non-genre stuff like Whose Line is it Anyway?, Everybody Hates Chris and Hellcats.

Deathstroke needs a movie, hopefully this is the start of more exposure for the character.

I think a wicked DC epic battle would be

Deathstroke vs Bane

Is this a good show. I'm not really into animation but maybe it helps out Deathstroke's career and moves into a possible movie.

As someone that has been a comic book reader of Deathstroke stories since The New Teen Titans #2, I found it to be a solid representation of his lore and backstory. Though they went with an origin that more mirrors the New 52 line when it comes to how he lost his eye.
