If you like the DC books in general, the DC Superhero direct to DVD are entertaining. Yes, they are pitched to families so some of the humor is aimed at young kids and much of the story themes are simplistic, but the over-all attention to canon and to putting out a short enough film (roughly 70 minutes, similarly to the other animated DVDs from Warner Brothers Animated) that an adult can enjoy. I actually found this cinematic universe, which was pretty much distributed in parallel to the New 52 based DC animated film universe that started with Flashpoint Paradox to be the ‘better’ of the two. Certainly, the more enjoyable and satisfying.

Again, not at all surprising, hugely predictable, although I am averse to sounding like a cracked clock (or looking like a broken mirror)? Feeling misshaped like left-in-the-sun-too-long vinyl? But …

Although I understand your point it is not an absolute that spending more money always generates the better or more popular product. Two current examples, The Mets in Baseball and I’m guessing most folks would pick the Flash TV Series over the Movie.

They have definitely spent north of $200M and probably easily north of $350M on the DCW Flash. There are reports the annual budget for a full season was $50M, even if not true, it would not at all surprise me that it is more than $20-30M given the number of episodes, and number of costs associated simply with creating 20 some episodes of 40-45 minutes for an episodic broadcast television show.

OTOH, the DVD LEGO movies biggest costs were likely the CGI animation, the licensing fee WB Animation paid to DC Entertainment, the VA actor salaries as a whole, and the licensing fee to LEGO, but probably even with those costs, it was likely well below $1M per movie because the gross on each of these in, for example, retail sales, was only in the $2M range per movie.

The Lego Batgod movie had a reported production budget north of $100M.

Irrelevant as that is a budget spend over 9 years of products, not for one thing.

The Lego batman Movie cost 80 million, well less than you are saying.
