Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths – New images from the animated feature

Posted by LiveFor on December 30, 2009


We finally get a proper look at the Justice League’s evil, alternate-Earth counterpart, The Crime Syndicate, in these pictures from Warner Bros forthcoming animated film. The picture below shows Johnny Quick, Ultraman, Superwoman and Owlman. As you’ve probably guessed they are the evil Earth 2 version of The Flash, Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman.

That means The Jester (above) is an heroic version of the Joker and the pumped up Jimmy Olsen (bottom) is a bad guy.

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?
