When it comes to the main line of DC DVD movies, many of them tend to adapt some pretty dark stories into DVD movies. Many of them are pretty good. However, I'm wondering if the more all-ages stories (such as the DC Superhero Girls graphic novels, some of the Teen Titans Go comics, as well as something like the recently released Primer, just to give some examples) could be adapted into their own standalone DVD movies . I think there's potential to bring fourth the spirit of these stories into the animated world. What would you adapt and why?

1. Shazam! The Monster Society of Evil by Jeff Smith. It's a terrific story, well told.
2. Captain Carrot; I want to see the Zoo Crew in animated action.
3. Sugar and Spike. It's a classic.

Primer - A relatively new title I think could do well with it's own animated film in do time if allowed.

Superman vs the Clan - The art style is easily animatable, although I'll admit it can be challenging to tackle white supremacist groups in a middle-grade specific medium in film I think it could be a topic worth tackling.

Diana: Princess of the Amazons - It looks cute. Could be a fun take on Wonder Woman's origin

Zatanna and the House of Secrets - Mainly because Zatanna really should have her own animated film

Gotham Accademy - The art style mainly, but also because of the mystery aspect while also having fun with it. Almost Nancy Drew inspired

Green Lantern Legacy - We could go for more Green Lantern, if DC is quick to jump on the hype train for Jessica Cruz, I can't see why they wouldn't want to the same for Minh Lê.

Black Canary Ignite - Black Canary also deserves her own animated flick simply because of how awesome she is.

Super Sons - Come one, it's the sons of Superman and Batman going out on adventures around the world while playing off each other's banter. How could this not make for a fun film?

Batman: Midnight Ride - Because of course we gotta have at least one Batman flick ;p

Superman Smashes The Klan - Just a really fun, heartwearming and timely Superman story that I think could look amazing animated.

The only one of these I'm seen mentioned is the Shazam Monster Society one. That was a good one.

What I'd really like is to see the stories of Batman: The Adventures Continue animated in either movies or a TV show. Make those comics DCAU animated canon.

The Return of Superfriends or The Last Days of the Superfriends
Retake the continuity of Hanna-Barbera and show all the members who were once Superfriends, from Superman to Apache Chief Black Vulcan or the Wonder Twins!

Green Lantern & Flash: The Brave and the Bold
A great adventure of Hal and Barry vs Sinestro, Evil Star, Star Sapphire, Reverse Flash, Captain Cold, Mirror Master and Gorila Grodd!

Shazam and the DC Super Friends
4 shorts of Shazam teaming up with different DC heroes (Shazam & Hawkman and Hawkwoman, Shazam & Atom, Shazam & Dr.Fate and Shazam & Firestorm) leading to a fifth final adventure, with all these heroes together against Black Adam!
(It would also be a nice way to relate characters like Black Adam the Hawks and Dr.Fate who appear together on the big screen in 2021)

Justice League vs Masters of the Universe
Faced at the beginning but united at the end against Darkseid Lex Luthor Skeletor and Hordak!

Another: The 1998 Young Justice series by Tom Dezago, Peter David, and Todd Nauck. i love the dynamic of this team of young heroes with it's mixture of comedy, action and the occasional drama.

what happened to Nostalgialodeon twitter user? Now it shows as twitter account doesn't exist

Bella/Big from Polly Pocket reminds me of Big Barda from DC Superhero Girls 2015, being a physically strong character who's initially antagonistic before becoming a friend to the main characters, and showing a softer side. Rhona Rees even seems to channel a voice similar to Misty Lee. I know Shea Fontana developed both shows, but still.

I’m hoping the first Madagascar movie finally airs on Nickelodeon this year. They’ve only played the sequels so far.
