Home Entertainment announced last night at the Comic-Con premiere of Batman and Harley Quinn that upcoming DC animated movies will include a Death of Superman adaptation, which will be released as two separate, feature-length films starting in 2018.

But let's not get ahead of ourselves, and instead talk about the next batch of flicks in the order they'll be chronologically released.

First up is official confirmation of an adaptation of the DC Comics Elseworlds story Batman: Gotham By Gaslight, which reimagines the Dark Knight as a Victorian-era detective on the hunt for the notorious serial killer Jack the Ripper.

Batman and Harley Quinn releases August 14th!

Next up will be Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay, an original story featuring Task Force X. While it remains unclear what the plot will entail, we fully expect the film to reflect the current lineup found in the comics and recent live action motion picture.

Finally, there's the aforementioned Death of Superman.

Yes, this has been adapted before as Superman: Doomsday, the very first in the long line of DC Universe animated movies. But despite it remaining among the highest selling, there were some fans very vocal about wanting a more faithful, less condensed translation. (Batman: Assault on Arkham, the 2014 movie that also featured the Suicide Squad was set within the Arkham video game continuity.) Hell to Pay will feature an original story and what's promised to be an fantastic voice cast.

Early 2019 will bring us Reign of the Supermen, the all-important "return" half of the equation.

The sequel to "Death of Superman", "Reign" will follow the events of a world without a Superman protecting, only to have a series of clones emerge and take the mantle: Steel, The Eradicator, Superboy, and Cyborg Superman. Having said that, we wouldn't doubt if the powers that be one day go that route with this project.

This version appears to have a different continuity to the first animated version, "Batman: Assault on Arkham', so the two may not be linked as some might have thought".
