Thanks to Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, here's the trailer for the upcoming JUSTICE LEAGUE: WAR animated film...
Truth be told, I wasn’t a big fan of the Johns/Lee Justice League comic book in the New 52. Granted, I’m not a fan of Justice League comic books in general, but I did give the title a shot when the DC comic book universe was rebooted. I read a few issues and then dropped it. I found it too forced (“We’ve got to get this super-team together!”) and fantastical – especially when it comes to my personal Batman sensibilities. However, I usually like these animated JL films, so I’m totally keeping an open mind to this new endeavor.
I will say that I do LOVE the New 52’s costume redesigns – especially when it comes to Batman. An armored, all-black Bat-suit is TOTALLY the way to go. BUT…
I HATE the Superman costume redesign! If it were up to me, I’d ditch the armor, turtleneck color, and red belt. I’m totally OK with Superman without the outer-underwear, but I’d make the best yellow. Hell, I thought that Superman’s threads in MAN OF STEEL were pretty damn cool – how about the fine folks at DC Comics proper using ‘em for inspiration?
When the powerful Darkseid and his massive, relentless forces invade Earth, a group of previously unaligned super heroes – misunderstood and, in some cases, hunted by the authorities – discover the only way to fend off the attack will be to work together as a cohesive unit. Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, Shazam and, in his origin story, Cyborg combine their respective talents in an all-out battle to save the planet. Based on the 2012 graphic novel, “Justice League: Origin,” by Geoff Johns & Jim Lee, provides a glance into the world before the Justice League was created, and offers the initial animated incarnation of DC Entertainment’s “The New 52.”
Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment, JUSTICE LEAGUE: WAR features the voices of Jason O’Mara , Christopher Gorham, Justin Kirk, Alan Tudyk, Michelle Monaghan, Shemar Moore, Sean Astin, Bruce Thomas and Steve Blum. Producer is James Tucker and director is Jay Oliva from a script by Heath Corso.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will distribute JUSTICE LEAGUE: WAR as a Bu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and for Digital Download on February 4, 2013.
