In a few weeks, the next film hit DVD and Blu-ray–Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox–and it’s an adaptation of the Flashpoint mini-series that, in the comic book world, lead to The New 52. In discussing this upcoming film on our last podcast we noted that there was very little information about the animated film to hit after Flashpoint, and we joked that it would be a funny meta twist to have the Flashpoint movie lead to all of the subsequent animated films being set in The New 52.
It looks like this might actually be what’s happening, at least for one film.
The next DC Universe Animated Original Movie is called Justice League: War and it’s an adaptation of the first arc of Geoff Johns and Jim Lee’s New 52 Justice League. This was announced today via a Tweet from a WB PR maven Gary Miereanu and in a follow-up Tweet he gave us the only other information we have so far, that Batman will be voiced by Irish actor Jason O’Mara.
More information as it comes in.
Here’s the main cast list:
