Warner Premiere and DC Comics' line of animated direct-to-video features will debut SUPERMAN/BATMAN: PUBLIC ENEMIES after GREEN LANTERN: FIRST FLIGHT.
A WB spokesman confirmed the information Monday morning, after AIN'T IT COOL NEWS' Harry Knowles broke the story late Friday. The anticipated released date is fall 2009, based on the Jeff Loeb/ Ed McGuinness comic series. Bruce Timm will exec produce.
The synopsis is as follows:
"United States President Lex Luthor uses the oncoming trajectory of a kryptonite asteroid to frame Superman and declare a $1 billion bounty on the heads of the Man of Steel and his "partner in crime" Batman. Super heroes and super villains alike launch a relentless pursuit of Superman and Batman, who must unite -- and recruit super help -- to stave off the action-packed onslaught, stop the asteroid, and uncover Luthor's devious plot to take command of far more than North America."
