Awesome all around :) This makes me very happy. The only thing I'm dissapointed by is that they havent offciially announced a Silver Surfer film yet. But I'm especially glad to see the continuation of the direct to dvd animated films. I've been really enjoying that line. Also, I think that's the only stuff on this list I wasn't previously aware of. I'm sure in the weeks and months ahead we'll be talking more about everything on this list. Hooray!
