Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths Preview

Posted by LiveFor on October 3, 2009

dccrisisI posted some pics and news on this new animated film a while back and now we have some footage.

Written by Justice League alumni Dwayne McDuffie and Bruce Timm serving as executive producer, the feature borrows themes from DC’s “Crisis On Infinite Earths” and Grant Morrison’s “JLA: Earth 2″ storylines with a heroic version of Lex Luthor traveling from a parallel Earth to enlist the aid of the Justice League in thwarting their evil counterparts, The Crime Syndicate. Owlman stands out as the most notable foe, apparently putting “the balance of all existence in peril” according to Warner Bros.

The Cast is as follows:
Mark Harmon – Clark Kent/Kal-El/Superman
James Woods – Owlman
Chris Noth – Lex Luthor
William Baldwin – Bruce Wayne/Batman
Gina Torres – Super Woman
Bruce Davison – The President

Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths – New DC Comics animated feature

Posted by LiveFor on September 16, 2009

I have still not got hold of the new Green Lantern: First Flight or seen any of the Superman / Batman: Public Enemies animated films that DC have recently released (if any PR people reading this have any screener copies they want to send me to review then send them my way – hey that’s one of the perks of running this site).

However, I do love cartoons, comics and superheroes so anything like this is immediately cool in my book.

MTV had this first look at the new film and it is based on some classic stories from the DC universe – some footage has now been released.

Written by Justice League alumni Dwayne McDuffie and Bruce Timm serving as executive producer, the feature borrows themes from DC’s “Crisis On Infinite Earths” and Grant Morrison’s “JLA: Earth 2” storylines with a heroic version of Lex Luthor traveling from a parallel Earth to enlist the aid of the Justice League in thwarting their evil counterparts, The Crime Syndicate. Owlman stands out as the most notable foe, apparently putting “the balance of all existence in peril” according to Warner Bros.

Earth 2 featured an alternate Earth where all the Justice League heroes had their evil counterparts (see the pic below) and was a very cool tale from the man who brought us The Invisibles, We3, Animal Man and so many more good things.

Crisis on Infinite Earths is a true classic and featured the DC multiverse being obliterated one Universe at a time. It also featured the death of Supergirl and Barry Allen who was the first Flash to don the full red suit. Since then Barry has returned and a new version of Supergirl has since appeared. That is the trouble with comics. No one stays Bucky dead anymore…not even Bucky although I don’t mind that so much as his time as the Winter Soldier and the new Captain America have been very cool.

Any way I digress and apparantly switched comic book universes in that last paragraph.

The feature’s voice cast will include stars Mark Harmon (“NCIS”) as Superman, James Woods (“Ghosts of Mississippi”) as Owlman, Chris Noth (“Sex and the City, Law & Order”) as Lex Luthor, William Baldwin (“Dirty Sexy Money”) as Batman, Gina Torres (“Serenity,” “Firefly”) as Super Woman and Bruce Davison (“X-Men”) as the President.

All in all this is shaping up to pretty darn tasty. Anyone else excited about it?

Animated Wonder Woman DVD news

Posted by LiveFor on November 19, 2008

MTV have been talking about the forthcoming Wonder Woman animated feature on DVD which is due out on March 3, 2009. Warner Premiere has released the specs on the forthcoming DVD along with some images from the feature.

“Wonder Woman” will tell the truly epic tale of the character’s origin, from her upbringing on the mystical island of Themyscira, to her inevitable journey into the world of man, where she establishes herself as a hero who plays by her own rules and laws. However, conflict soon arises as Ares escapes his imprisonment from the Amazons and swears revenge on the mortal and mythical worlds, and it’s up to Wonder Woman to stop him at all costs.

Produced by Emmy-award winning animator Bruce Timm and starring the vocal talents of Keri Russell, Alfred Molina, Virginia Madsen, Rosario Dawson and Oliver Platt just to name a few, “Wonder Woman” will be released as a single disc, a two disc special edition and will also be available on Blu-ray DVD. Special features include featurettes such as “Wonder Woman: A Subversive Dream,” which delves into the history of the character and her role in helping define a generation of empowered women, “Wonder Woman The Daughters of Myth,” which documents the relationship between Wonder Woman and her true-life Amazon counterparts, and “Wonder Woman: The Amazon Princess,” a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the animated movie. There’s also a digital version of the film for handheld devices, audio commentaries, and a special look at Bruce Timm’s personal favorite episodes of “Justice League” and “Justice League Unlimited” which featured Wonder Woman.

Will you be picking this up? What other DC character would you like to get the animated treatment?
