Now We Need a Cartoon Cinematic Universe

Supposedly WB is going to start a new cinematic universe based on Hanna Barbera cartoons. Because that’s something that so many people are waiting for. And no, this does not appear to be a joke. We can look forward to dark and gritty reboots (and lack of warm colors to emphasize how serious everything is) of all your favorite childhood cartoons. The first cartoon to fall victim to this new plan is Scooby Doo. The only good that could come out of that is maybe Scrappy Doo will need to die in order to set up the inevitable darkness and grittiness of the new universe. Plus, Batman and Superman are already controlled by WB so maybe we can get Justice League tie ins.
