Like a lot of folks, I thought the Batman/Superman billboard in I Am Legend was a neat little tease. And for a while, there was some promise of a teamup between the two DC titans (which of course got waylaid by the failure of Superman Returns). Well, leave it to the fine folks at Warner Premier (the folks behind the recent Wonder Woman animated movie ) to pick up the slack.

Superman/Batman: Public Enemies will be a direct-to-DVD full-length animated fature based on the comic book storyline of the same name. In it, a massive chunk of Kryptonite (said to be an actual piece of the planet Kryton) is heading towards Earth. President(!) Luthor uses this as an opportunity to rid himself of his greatest foe. Superman is then framed for a crime he didn't commit, and Luthor turns the world against him by claiming the meteor is driving the Man of Steel crazy. When even his fellow heroes are forced to try and capture him, Superman has to turn to the only person he can trust: a certain Caped Crusader WHO'S used to being on the wrong end of the law.

If the thought of Superman and Batman on the run isn't enough to entice you, the cast list might. On top of the return of Kevin Conroy as Batman and Tim Daly as Big Blue, Clancy Brown also returns to play the magnificent bastard Lex Luthor.

Check out an exclusive interview with the producers, original story writer Jeph Loeb, and the three stars.

Update: Found the teaser trailer. Hurry before it gets yanked.
