Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has confirmed that the new all-ages animated feature JLA Adventures: Trapped In Time will hit DVD on Tuesday, January 21st, 2014. The DVD-only release will be available exclusively at American Target locations starting next week. JLA Adventures: Trapped In Time features the greatest heroes of DC Comics squaring off against their most challenging foes.
Dubbed a “stealth release,” wherein a home entertainment product is given no promotion and limited availability due to its perceived audience reach, JLA Adventures: Trapped In Time is an all-new original movie featuring the Justice League facing off against the classic Legion of Doom. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has currently not provided any official details about the animated movie, but JLA Adventures: Trapped In Time producer Giancarlo Volpe (Green Lantern: The Animated Series) has recently taken to social media to drop a few tidbits.
Denzel Washington Rumored for Green Lantern in Superman/Batman Movie
OK, first of all, let’s just start calling it Justice League and get it over with, OK? We’ve got Wonder Woman confirmed, and the Flash rumored, and now there are reports that Denzel Washington is being considered to play John Stewart, otherwise known as the minority Green Lantern that doesn’t tick off intolerant folks as much.
Take this rumor with a grain of salt. That being said, what do you think?
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.
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.
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.
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.
