DC/Warner Bros. Home Entertainment are out with their second clip from the upcoming animated film Justice League: War, the first animated film set in the comic book new 52 depicting the formation of the Justice League, which happens to be in the news today for other reasons .
According to DC, in the clip, "Wonder Woman reveals her true responsibility (which just happens to involve kicking butt)." According to her it's actually "combat," but we're nitpicking.
Justice League: War hits Blu-ray, DVD, and digital on February 4, 2014. The official description follows below.
Original story: The New 52 is coming to animation in 2014, and the PR blitz has officially begun, with the release of two new images and the first clip, showing Green Lantern and Batman's first meeting, in a scene familiar to comic book fans from the earliest days of the Justice League.
Of course, there are some changes to the story - Shazam is a founding member in lieu of Aquaman, for example, but this is still notable for bringing what's really a nascent universe - only 2.5 years old - into another medium, showing the synergy of the Geoff Johns-led DC Entertainment.
Justice League: War hits Blu-ray, DVD, and digital on February 4, 2014. The official description follows.
When the powerful Darkseid and his massive, relentless forces invade Earth, a group of previously unaligned super heroes – misunderstood and, in some cases, hunted by the authorities – discover the only way to fend off the attack will be to work together as a cohesive unit. Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, Shazam and, in his origin story, Cyborg combine their respective talents in an all-out battle to save the planet. Based on the 2012 graphic novel, “Justice League: Origin,” by Geoff Johns & Jim Lee, Justice League: War provides a glance into the world before the Justice League was created, and offers the initial animated incarnation of DC Entertainment’s “The New 52.”
