DC Studios is developing the JURASSIC LEAGUE animated film featuring dinosaur versions of Batman and Superman

DC Studios is developing a new animated film based on the DC Comics series Jurassic League. The six-issue limited series was published in 2022, and the film on which it is based will be set on “a prehistoric version of Earth that sees heroes and villains as dinosaurs.”

That’s right, Batman, Superman, Joker and others are imagined as wild prehistoric dinosaurs and it looks like it’s going to be a great animated movie!

CEO of DC Studios James Gunn is involved in the project as a producer and Brian Lynch is writing the screenplay. Lynch has already worked on films such as The cat with the boots, The Secret Life of Petsand both Serve AND Minions: The Rise of Gru.

Not much is known about the project, which doesn’t yet have an official title, but the description for the original comic series reads: “You know the story: an infant escapes the destruction of his home planet and is deposited on Earth to be raised by human parents . A goddess from a lost city defends the truth. A Tyrannosaurus rex wears the face of a bat to strike fear into the hearts of evildoers. This heroic trinity, along with a league of other super-powered dinosaurs, join forces to save a prehistoric Earth from the sinister machinations of Darkseid. Wait what? Okay, maybe you don’t know the story. So join us and witness a brand new yet older-than-time adventure and experience Justice League like you’ve never seen it before!

In the comics, Superman is a Brachiosaurus, Batman is an Allosaurus, Wonder Woman is a Triceratops, and Joker is a Dilophosaurus. Artist Juan Gideon he explained in a previous interview why he paired these specific dinosaurs with these characters. He explained that the Allosaurus was chosen for Batman because it’s a type of dinosaur that “has no superpowers, but strikes fear into the hearts of criminals… Plus they have those pointy horns on their heads, kind of like Batman’s ears “.

Speaking about Superman, he shared: “[He’s] the pinnacle of goodness and strength, and only fights if there is no other option, so I wanted a herbivorous dinosaur that looked harmless but was solid and strong. Brachiosaurus was perfect.”

So Wonder Woman was paired with a Triceratops because “they’re herbivores but they could defeat a T-Rex, so it seems appropriate.” Joker was chosen as Dilophosaurus, because that dinosaur is small, sneaky, and predatory.

This could turn out to be an incredibly interesting and action-packed prehistoric adventure film that both children and adult fans will enjoy.

There’s no release date for this film yet, but does it sound like something you’d be excited to watch?
