Gotta admit, as much as I love the dudes, I'm sick of Batman and Superman animated movies. Give me some variety, that's all I want. I know an Aquaman movie would never sell well, and nobody probably cares about Green Arrow, but just try something different.
I went to a Q&A for Batman/Superman: Doomsday, and Bruce Timm had some insight on that. Basically, Batman and Superman are the only characters that can sell a DVD. They made a Wonder Woman movie before Doomsday, and they lost money on it. They were going to stop production on Doomsday, since it was originally just called "Supergirl," but they were too far into production, so they added a few extra scenes and changed the name. It worked, and Doomsday sold enough to cover the losses from Wonder Woman.
That's why you don't really see non SuperBats animated movies unless they are a movie tie-in. We might see a Green Arrow movie if the TV show does well, but we'll have to wait and see.
Hooray for self-fulfilling prophecies.
