Joining those will also be a horde of DC animated films, such as Green Lantern: Emerald Knights, Green Lantern: First Flight, Justice League: Gods and Monsters, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, Justice League: War, Justice League: Doom, Justice League: The New Frontier, Justice League: Throne of AtlantisJustice League vs. Teen Titans.
