Justice League: Doom, the highly-anticipated newest entry in the popular series of DC Universe Animated Original Movies, will be getting a red carpet premiere at NYC’s The Paley Center for Media — and MTV Geek will be there!
Produced by Warner Premiere, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation, the all-new Justice League: Doom hits stores and screens February 28, 2012 from Warner Home Video as a Blu-Ray™ Combo Pack and DVD, On Demand and for Download.
Inspired by Mark Waid’s popular “Tower of Babel” storyline in the comic book JLA, Justice League: Doom finds the classic superhero team — Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, Cyborg and Batman — having their hands full when a team of super villains discover and implement the Dark Knight’s “contingency plans” for stopping any rogue Justice League member.
The animated movie boasts a comic book and sci-fi fan’s dream voice-cast: Nathan Fillion as Green Lantern, Tim Daly as Superman, Michael Rosenbaum as Flash, Kevin Conroy as Batman, Carl Lumbly as J’onn J’onzz/Martian Manhunter …basically, a reunion and team-up of the actors who made the cartoon adventures of these classic characters so great, in a story written by the acclaimed Dwayne McDuffie. If you are in the New York area, this is one screening you are not going to want to miss!
