Why DC Won’t Be Animating Kingdom Come – Bruce Timm Talks 10 Years Of DC Animated Movies

Kaitlyn Booth writes from New York Comic Con from Bleeding Cool,

When it comes to the DC animated universe movies no one is probably more involved than producer Bruce Timm. He’s been a part of the universe since it began and is someone who has help shape the giant box office coming out in November. When asked about plots that fans always request Timm explained that there is one that always comes up but he believes he has a good reason for why it won’t happen.

The one that we hear all the time is Kingdom Come and I have to, like, crush everyone’s dream every single time because it’s just not within the scope of what we can do with these movies. The main thing that people remember from Kingdom Come, beyond the story, is the look. It was Alex Ross, breaking big, doing “photorealistic superheroes”, so if we did an animated version of Kingdom Come it would not look like that. We don’t have the money, there isn’t enough money on the planet to make it look like that, so there’s really no reason to do it. Automatically, they would be disappointed, that’d be the number one thing on amazon and amazon reviews would be “one star – doesn’t look like Alex Ross”.
