Trailer for Justice League War: The New 52 Arrives in the DCAU
The new 52 started with the Justice League just meeting each other for the first time and teaming up to save the world against Darkseid. The upcoming Justice League War animated movie is based on the first arc of Geoff Johns and Jim Lee’s rejittering of the JL. As was seen in stills Wonder Woman once again gets a new costume without a bustier. I quite like it. I could still do without her sword play.
LOL, casually blocks omega beam.
We’re not really feeling Wonder Woman’s new outfit.
Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox won’t release on Blu-ray and DVD until July 30th, but 4000 fortunate fans will be able to catch the premiere tonight at San Diego Comic Con.
Couldn’t make it to SDCC? Don’t worry. The Flashpoint Paradox will be available for digital download today.In the meantime, check out this newly released clip from DC’s latest animated film.
The fact that DC’s next animated film after Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox was going to be Justice League: War is no surprise. The title has been floating around the interwebs for quite some time now. But finally we have some details as to what War will be all about.
Justice League: War will be based on Origin, the first New 52 Justice League arc by Geoff Johns and Jim Lee. Origin tells the story of how the Justice League first banded together to fight Darkseid and his armies. In the comic book world, with Geoff John’s Flashpoint being the cause of DC’s New 52 and Origin being the first arc to debut, we have to wonder if Warner Bros/DC will begin to have their animated films connect in an overall animated universe. It would make sense since this is being released after The Flashpoint Paradox.
Two voice actors have already been revealed for Justice League: War and they are Jason O’Mara (Vegas) as Batman and Shemar Moore (Criminal Minds) as Cyborg.
That’s all the news on that front so far. With San Diego Comic Con right around the corner I’m sure there will e more news on Justice League: War coming up. We’ll keep you posted.
UPDATE: World’s Finest Online reports Michelle Monaghan (Source Code) will be voicing Wonder Woman, Christopher Gorham (Ugly Betty) will voice The Flash, Alan Tudyk (Firefly) will voice Superman, and Justin Kirk (Weeds) will voice Green Lantern. Jay Oliva (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Parts 1 & 2) will be directing.
If you don’t want spoilers, don’t read any further. Seriously.
Because it apparently needed to be repeated over and over, Christian Bale has - once again - confirmed that he won’t be playing Batman in the possible Justice League movie set for 2015. So… check back here in three months for a repeat of this story.
Watch it. Let us know what you think.
Some new information on DC’s upcoming Jay Oliva directed animated movie, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, has surfaced. First of all, just look at that amazing blu-ray cover. We see, as usual, a combo pack including the blu-ray, DVD, and digital copy will be available, Secondly, here is the movie’s official description:
When time travel allows a past wrong to be righted for Flash and his family, the event’s temporal ripples prove disastrous, creating a fractured, alternate reality where the Justice League never formed, and even Superman is nowhere to be found. Amidst a new world being ravaged by a fierce war between Wonder Woman’s Amazons and Aquaman’s Atlanteans, Flash must team with a grittier, more violent Batman and government agent Cyborg to restore the continuity of Flash’s original timeline.
Also, here’s a list of the featurettes and special features that will be included with the blu-ray.
- A Flash in Time: Are there other dimensions? Can time travel get us there? And if The Flash existed, could he really travel through time? Interviews with experts in mythology, theoretical physics and top DC writers will examine the science and legacy of the storytelling behind the fiction.
- My Favorite Villians! The Flash Bad Guys: Acclaimed DC Comics writer Geoff Johns and others share their favorite Flash villains in this short film that gives viewers a glimpse into the Flash’s world through the eyes of some of the nefarious characters he has encountered over the past 70 years!

Judging from previous details that have been revealed and now these blu-ray details, it sounds like Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox,will be another great animated film from DC and a must-by.
‘Trinity War’, the next big event in the DC Universe, will pit all three Justice League teams against each other. Beginning this July, ‘Trinity War’ will be a 6-issue story arc crossing over in Justice League, Justice League of America, and Justice League Dark, and will be co-written by Geoff Johns and Jeff Lemire. Also, Johns is promising us “It’s not going to end wrapped up in a bow,” and “Something really, really major happens that kicks off some pretty crazy stuff at the end of August.” (USAToday)
Head on over to USAToday for even more details and a few words from both Johns and Lemire about this upcoming project.
Yeah, we’re not holding our breaths on this one, but the site reporting this rumor has a good track record, so here goes:
Apparently, Christian Bale is in talks to reprise the role of Batman in the still-scheduled-for-2015-script-be-damned Justice League, with Christopher Nolan taking over ALL of DC Comics’ superhero properties.
So there’s that. Obviously it’ll take place in a different continuity (we think) than The Dark Knight Rises, unless they do a bit where ((SPOILERS)) Bruce Wayne gets tired of retirement or something.
It looks like DC’s planned Justice League movie for summer 2015 will feature a wide cast of characters. This is a rumor first and foremost, so take it with a pinch of salt, but these details apparently came from someone within DC Entertainment:
• Superman is essentially the same character from Man of Steel, and Zack Snyder is consulting regarding the writing of the character.
• Batman: The strategist of the group. Batman doesn’t really want to be involved with these super powered beings he considers too powerful. Easily the most complex written.
• Wonder Woman: She has only been in man’s world a few short months. The Wonder Woman script Michael Goldenberg is developing will be set before the Justice League movie.
• Green Lantern: Will be Ryan Reynold’s Hal Jordan character from the Green Lantern movie, but will be freshly written with a more serious tone… and probably not played by Ryan Reynolds.
• Flash: The most popular hero in civilian eyes who loves media attention, but when called upon is very serious.
• Martian Manhunter: Alien who has lived on Earth in secret for over a hundred years who has knowledge of Darkseid and his reign.
• Aquaman: Will be the King of Atlantis and has a “key role” in the film.
• There will also be a heavy military presence in the film which in future rewrites could include characters featured in Man of Steel or even Amanda Waller (Angela Bassett), of which neither are included in the first draft.
• Alfred Pennyworth is in the film in a minor appearance.
• Lois Lane is also in the film in a cameo.
• Darkseid’s Elite will be featured who go up against the Justice League early on in the film.
The script is reportedly inspired by Gerry Conway’s 3-issue “Crisis on New Genesis” Justice League of America arc (#183-185).
Yup. Darkseid will reportedly be the antagonist in DC’s Justice League movie, set to happen in 2015. We’ve heard rumors that Man of Steel's Henry Cavill will be Superman, while The Dark Knight Rises co-star Joseph Gordon-Levitt is rumored to play Batman (although he denies it); no word on what other heroes will be a part of the story.
OK, if you haven’t seen The Dark Knight Rises and don’t want to be spoiled, 1) you really shouldn’t even be online at this point and 2) LOOK AWAY NOW.
Seriously. Look away.
Not responsible for what comes after this sentence if it spoils part of the movie for you.
