Following Gotham Knight, Drake scored the fourth in the line of DC Universe Animated Original Movies, Wonder Woman (2009), starring Keri Russell, Nathan Fillion, Alfred Molina, Virginia Madsen, and Rosario Dawson. After that film, Drake wrote the scores for the animated films Superman/Batman: Public Enemies (2009), Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths (2010), Batman: Under the Red Hood (2010), All-Star Superman (2011), Green Lantern: Emerald Knights (2011), Batman: Year One (2011), Justice League: Doom (2012), and Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (2012).
