In addition to the cool short from Bruce Timm, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have produced another animated tribute to Batman honoring the Caped Crusaders 75th anniversary. This new animated short is set in the Batman Beyond world with the semi-retired Bruce Wayne (voiced again by Kevin Conroy) and his young pal Terry (voiced by Will Friedle) taking up the mantle of Batman. The duo is being attacked by robotic Bat-droids that look like all of the different incarnations of the Batman character and the Bat-suit over the years. It’s really a cool tribute. Check it out the short after the jump…
The brilliant Bruce Timm has produced a new Batman animated short which honors the Caped Crusader on the 75th anniversary of his DC Comics’ debut.

We ran across this incredibly cool two-minute animated short film on EW.com that encapsulates the complete history of Superman. From his start in Action Comics, to George Reeves’ TV interpretation, to Christopher Reeve, Smallville, and finally Man of Steel, along with everything in between, this is a fun and fast-moving tribute to the beloved super hero.

My geek-o-metor just snapped in twain! Zack Snyder, director of comic book movies 300, Watchmen and the eagerly anticipated Man of Steel, is teaming up with Bruce Timm, creator of Batman: The Animated Series and Jay Oliver, director of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns and story board artist on Man of Steel, to work on an animated Superman short for Warner Bros… and breathe.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has been churning out the feature-length animated films based on DC Comics at a regular clip all year-long with Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part 2 and the upcoming Superman: Unbound, and the next DC Animated Universe feature will be based on the popular 2011 Flashpoint comic book event by Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert, which was the much-publicized story that essentially ended 75 years of DC Comics continuity and led to the New 52 Comic line re-launch.
