Yesterday, I gave you the full breakdown on the “Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths” featurette that appeared on the DVD for DC’s “Superman/Batman: Public Enemies” animated movie. Not only did we get our first look at Ultraman, Power Ring and the rest of the JLA’s alternate-universe counterparts, The Crime Syndicate, but we also found out about the origins of the next animated feature from the DC Universe.
However, since my recap and the shoddy-at-best images I posted only go so far, here’s an exclusive video preview of “Crisis On Two Earths,” courtesy of the good folks at DC and Warner Bros. Premiere. I’m pretty sure you’ll agree that it’s even better than I described it—and that James Woods makes a pretty terrifying Owlman.
So, tell me, folks—was that Justice League Detroit we caught a glimpse of there? Read on for the full specs on “Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths,” scheduled to arrive on shelves Spring 2010.
Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths
Warner Home Video will distribute in Spring 2010
An original story from award-winning animation/comics writer Dwayne McDuffie (Justice League) rooted in DC Comics’ popular canon of “Crisis” stories.
Bruce Timm (Superman Doomsday, Green Lantern) is executive producer.
Lauren Montgomery (Wonder Woman, Green Lantern) and Sam Liu (Superman/Batman: Public Enemies) are co-directors.
In Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths, a “good” Lex Luthor arrives from an alternate universe to recruit the Justice League to help save his Earth from the Crime Syndicate, a gang of villainous characters with virtually identical super powers to the Justice League. What ensues is the ultimate battle of good versus evil in a war that threatens both planets and, through a diabolical plan launched by Owlman, puts the balance of all existence in peril.
All-star voice cast led by 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.
