Way back in September, we gave you the first, exclusive preview of "Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths," the upcoming animated feature that pits Superman, Wonder Woman and the rest of the Justice League against their alternate-Earth counterparts, The Crime Syndicate. Now, we have the first clip from the film:
I could be mistaken, but that looks to be alternate-Earth versions of Justice League Detroit and The Outsiders, including counterparts to Elongated Man, Vixen, Halo and Black Lightning.
We already know that the Detroit JLA will be making an appearance in the film, and now it looks like we'll get more evil superteams than just the Crime Syndicate.
Official film synopsis follows:
Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths is an original story from award-winning animation/comics writer Dwayne McDuffie (Justice League) rooted in DC Comics’ popular canon of “Crisis” stories depicting parallel worlds with uniquely similar super heroes and villains. 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.
The movie features an 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.
"Crisis On Two Earths" hits shelves on DVD and Blu-Ray February 23.
