“Justice League” fans, prepare to meet your “Doom.”
Warner Bros. Home Video have announced that “Justice League: Doom,” the next movie in the DC Universe Animated Original Movies line that already includes hits like “Batman: Year One” and “Superman/Batman: Apocalypse,” is arriving in a variety of formats (including Blu-Ray, On Demand and for Download) on February 28, 2012.
Based on the “Tower of Babel” storyline from Mark Waid’s “JLA” run, “Doom” finds your favorite DC Comics heroes — Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter and Cyborg — reeling from an assault when a team of their worst enemies discovers the Dark Knight’s “contingency plan” for stopping rogue Justice League members and puts the plan into action. Needless to say, bad things ensue. “Doom” is the final DC Universe film script from the late Dwayne McDuffie, who passed away suddenly earlier this year.
“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, in a press release. “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.”
The film stars Kevin Conroy as Batman, Tim Daly as Superman, Nathan Fillion as Green Lantern, and Michael Rosenbaum as The Flash.
