Justice League: Doom

Postby jinpei05 » Apr 2nd, 2011 @ 12:41pm

Awesome. My favorite JLA story, coming to animated form!

DC Universe Animated Original Movie Producer Bruce Timm revealed Justice League: Doom will be the first title from the the acclaimed direct-to-video home video line to be released in 2012. Timm made the announcement during the annual WonderCon convention.

Justice League: Doom will be loosely based on the acclaimed Justice League of America: Tower of Babel comic storyline, originally published in 2000. The late Dwayne McDuffie adapted and wrote the script for the forthcoming animated feature. Further details on the creative team are set to be announced soon.


And I thought I was thrilled about Batman: Year One in September...

So there's going to be a panel at NYCC promoting this on October 19th, and Kevin Conroy is confirmed to be on it. Will the rest of the JLU cast join him? Does this confirm that they'll be getting the band back together for one last ride? Fingers crossed.

YES!!! The band is officially back together!!!

Primetime television stars Nathan Fillion and Tim Daly, the reigning voices of Green Lantern and Superman, respectively, join an exciting group of actors reprising their famed cartoon roles in Justice League: Doom, an all-new entry in the popular series of DC Universe Animated Original Movies due in early 2012 from Warner Home Video.

Justice League: Doom finds Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, Cyborg and Batman on their heels when a team of super villains discover and implement the Dark Knight’s “contingency plans” for stopping any rogue Justice League member. The story is inspired by Mark Waid’s much-heralded JLA: Tower of Babel.

Fillion, the star of ABC’s hit TV drama Castle, made his debut as Green Lantern/Hal Jordan in the recent Green Lantern: Emerald Knights. Fillion made his initial DCU bow as the voice of Steve Trevor in the 2008 hit Wonder Woman.

Currently headlining the cast of ABC’s popular Private Practice, Daly originated the title character’s voice in the landmark cartoon, Superman: The Animated Series. He has reprised the role in two DCU films: the 2009 extravaganza Superman/Batman: Public Enemies and the 2010 thriller Superman/Batman: Apocalypse.

In addition to current primetime stars Fillion and Daly, the cast is a grand reunion of the original group of actors who provided the voices of the Justice League for the cartoon of the same name and its follow-up, Justice League Unlimited. Reprising their roles are Kevin Conroy (Batman: The Animated Series) as Batman, Michael Rosenbaum (Smallville, Breaking In) as Flash, Susan Eisenberg (Superman/Batman: Apocalypse) as Wonder Woman and Carl Lumbly (Alias) as J’onn J’onzz/Martian Manhunter. Bumper Robinson (A Different World, Transformers: Animated) joins the cast as Cyborg.

The Justice League faces two sets of villainous teams in the film – The Royal Flush Gang and a sextet of notable evildoers. The latter group includes three voice acting alumni of the Justice League animated series: Phil Morris (Smallville, Seinfeld) as Vandal Savage, Olivia d’Abo (The Wonder Years) as Star Sapphire, and Alexis Denisof (Angel) as Mirror Master. Also opposing our heroes are Carlos Alazraqui (Reno 911) as Bane, Paul Blackthorne (The Dresden Files) as Metallo, and Claudia Black (Farscape, Stargate SG-1) as Cheetah.

David Kaufman (Danny Phantom) also reprises his Justice League role of Jimmy Olsen.

I didn't think Fillion was all that good as GL in Emerald Knights. Figure they've gotta just be pursuing him for his mountains of geek cred.

Well, that, and he's been a fan-favorite voice in Justice League Unlimited as Vigilante. Plus, Hal Jordan wasn't in JLU, it was John Stewart.

The only other voice of Hal Jordan was Christopher Meloni from Law & Order: SVU. I would've been fine if they got him.

Confirmed street date of February 28th, 2012.

Justice League: Doom finds Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, Cyborg and Batman on their heels when a team of super villains discover and implement the Dark Knight’s “contingency plans” for stopping any rogue Justice League member. The story is inspired by Mark Waid’s much-heralded JLA: Tower of Babel.

Primetime television stars Nathan Fillion (Castle) and Tim Daly (Private Practice), the reigning voices of Green Lantern and Superman, respectively, join a group of eight actors reprising their famed Justice League cartoon roles.

David Kaufman (Danny Phantom) also reprises his Justice League role of Jimmy Olsen.

The film is executive produced by Bruce Timm (Batman: Year One), and directed by Lauren Montgomery (Batman: Year One), who is also credited as producer alongside Alan Burnett (Batman: The Animated Series). Justice League: Doom is the final DC Universe film script from the late Dwayne McDuffie (All-Star Superman, Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths), who passed away in February 2011. Casting and dialogue direction is once again in the capable hands of Andrea Romano (Batman: Year One, Justice League).

“Justice League: Doom has all the classic ingredients of a great super hero film – a cavalcade of dynamic villains, internal strife amongst our heroes, treacherous twists and turns, and a cast that brings together some of today’s popular primetime television actors with many of the fans’ favorite voices from the original series,” said Hersin Magante, Warner Home Video Marketing Director, Family & Animation. “I think fans will embrace Dwayne’s McDuffie’s final DCU script, particularly as it has been nuanced by Bruce Timm and the Warner Bros. Animation team. Warner Home Video is proud to distribute Justice League: Doom as the next DC Universe Animated Original Movie.”

Justice League: Doom Blu-Ray™ Combo Pack has 3 hours of exciting content, including:
• Standard and high definition versions of the feature film
• UltraViiolet™ Digital Copy,
• Sneak Peak at Superman vs. The Elite, the next DC Universe Animated Original Movie
• Featurette – “A Legion of One: The Dwayne McDuffie Story” – The skilled writer penned some of the best stories which consistently entertained fans. From his early writing career to adapting the popular work of All-Star Superman, this is the story of Dwayne McDuffie, as told by his family and friends.
• Featurette – “Guarding the Balance: Batman and the JLA” – Everyone has a weakness and so do superheroes, yet when they go rogue, their power can topple more than a few egos, they can shatter worlds. The Justice League is the most powerful organization of superheroes on the planet, but what if the Justice League went rogue, and decided to use their power for harm?
• Mini-featurette – “Their Time Has Come: Cyborg and the DC Universe’s New Diversity” – 2011 will go down in DC Comics storied history as a year when a rich diversity of characters were re-introduced into the spotlight alongside Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. One of the most celebrated of the re-imagined characters is Cyborg, who became the new Man of Steel in Geoff Johns’ altered universe storyline, Flashpoint.
• Creative team commentary
• Two bonus episodes from the Justice League animated series handpicked by Bruce Timm: Wild Cards, Part 1 and 2, written by Stan Berkowitz and Dwayne McDuffie
• Digital Comic

Better than Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths, and definitely in my top 5, right under Wonder Woman and Batman: Under the Red Hood

WW still stands as the best one. Crisis is worth a rental.

It's available since yesterday on iTunes.

This was an alright one of these. I don't feel like it did justice to Tower of Babel though. I couldn't get over the fact that all the "fool proof plans" to take out the JLA were just kinda dumb/common knowledge shit (I read the synopsis of ToB and the plans there were much more inventive IMO). And then the lynchpin of the entire plan, Batman... The solution to get rid of him is to just punch him in the face and bury him alive? How fucking stupid! They kind of address that at the end, that Batman's actual plan to defeat himself was the Justice League (oh how quaint) but it didn't excuse Vandal and more importantly Bane from enacting a retarded plan that ultimately sunk their mission. The solution for avoiding the solar flare at the end was total nonsense too, but chalking that up to Comic Books.

At least the animation and voice work was A+ (still don't like Filion as GL). It did peak at the beginning though with the Royal Flush Gang. I loved Ace punching Supes and Supes no selling it. :lol:

Image

ed: Oh yeah, Batman had the best line in the flick too, where Superman was like "We only have 7 minutes to save the planet" and then they were looking over some plans and Superman in true doofus fashion was like "Maybe I can move the Earth out of the way!" and Bats was like "Even if we had a week I couldn't list all the reasons that won't work..." and in my mind he added a derisive "...dumbass!" after. :lol:

For those of us who actually READ the Tower of Babel, burying Batman alive wasn't a contingency plan, but an edit by McDuffie. It's a natural extension of Ra's Al Ghul's plan to distract Batman by stealing his parents' bodies while the rest of the League was incapacitated.

I'm going by what was presented in the movie, not the comic. If Vandal wanted to succeed in his plan, which was set to murder half the fucking people on the planet anyways, what was the point of even leaving Bruce alive? Bane had him incapacitated and should have just murdered him on the spot instead of toying with him by dumping him in the grave thus allowing him to escape and foil their plot.
