Wonder Woman: Bloodlines is the next DC animated movie coming out and since it’s a straight-to-Blu-ray film, fans are curious about the extras we’ll see. While there are the usual featurettes and sneak peeks, DC also announced the highly-anticipated DC Showcase animated short, which will focus on Neil Gaiman’s fan-favorite character Death from Sandman. Called DC Showcase: Death, we’ll be seeing the character in a short adventure that will probably get us to tear up a bit.
The story will be directed by Sam Liu, who helmed other DC animated movies like Justice League vs The Fatal Five, while acclaimed comic book writer J.M. DeMatteis, who is known for stories like Spider-Man: Kraven’s Last Hunt, will pen the script. Having these two work on the DC Showcase short is great and is another reason to pick this Blu-ray up, at least until the inevitable DC Showcase collection is released.
Here’s the summary (via Collider):
“Inspired by Neil Gaiman’s “The Sandman,” Death is produced & directed by Sam Liu (Justice League vs. The Fatal Five) and written by J.M. DeMatteis (Batman: Bad Blood). In the story, Vincent, an artist with unresolved inner demons, meets a mysterious girl who helps him come to terms with his creative legacy … and eventual death. Leonard Nam (Westworld) provides the voice of Vincent, and Jamie Chung (The Gifted, Big Hero 6) is the voice of Death. The voice cast includes Darin De Paul, Keith Szarabajka and Kari Wahlgren.”
Fans will be able to Wonder Woman: Bloodlines will be coming out on October 5 for digital platforms and October 22 for Blu-ray and DVD.
