This Legion of Super-Heroes animated movie comes courtesy of supervising producer Butch Lukic, director Jeff Wamester, writer Josie Campbell, producers Jim Krieg and Kimberly S. Moreau and executive producer Sam Register.
I still can’t get over the fact that we’re getting a DC animated movie featuring Arms Fall off Boy. See him in all his glory in the Legion of Super-Heroes animated trailer! I thought T.D.K. better known as The Detachable Kid in The Suicide Squad would be the closest we’d get but it delights me to no end the original classic in all his glory. Now if we can only see Matter-Eater Lad eat a Wendy’s restaurant in Peacemaker, my life will be complete!
Keep your eyes peeled right here for release details and Long Live the Legion!
