If you’re looking to link any of D.C.’s original animated movies together, you’re probably barking up the wrong tree. Their movies are basically stand-alone stories and have no ties from movie to movie as far as I an tell. It’s honestly a bit confusing how D.C. and Warner can’t get their act together and make a coherent animated movie universe. I mean, they’re animated, you can basically do anything you want with them. But anyways, don’t look to link their films together, like the upcoming “Justice League: War”, the first trailer for which you can find below.
I believe this is the story from the “Justice League” 52 relaunch, featuring the heroes as they band together for the first time to fight an invasion by bad guy Darkseid. Thus the wacky looking Superman and Green Lantern costumes. The Flash and Bats still look the same, though. Or close enough, I guess.
Featuring the voices of Alan Tudyk as Superman, Michelle Monaghan as Wonder Woman, Shemar Moore as Cyborg, Sean Astin as Shazam, Christopher Gorham as The Flash, Justin Kirk as Green Lantern, and Jason O’Mara as Batman.
“Justice League: War” was directed by Jay Oliva, who also directed the two-part “Batman: The Dark Knight Returns” and “Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox”.
On DVD/Blu-ray next year February 4, 2013.
