It’s hard to deny that Warner Bros. Animation is on a roll. The last few releases, which includes Death of Superman, Reign Of The Supermen, Constantine: City of Demons The Movie and Batman Ninja, have all been hits with fans.
“Justice League vs. The Fatal Five is an important addition to the DC Universe Movies, spotlighting two unlikely young heroes with real-world issues facing off against a daunting quintet of futuristic villains,” Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing, said in a statement. “We’re also are proud to have Kevin Conroy, Susan Eisenberg, and George Newbern reprising their seminal roles as DC’s Trinity in the Justice League [and] Justice League Unlimited animated series, and believe the fans will be equally pleased with their return to these characters.”
This DC animated movie finds the Earth’s future hanging in the balance when the Justice League faces a powerful new threat – the Fatal Five. But the Justice League discovers an ally from another time in the peculiar Star Boy – brimming with volatile power, could he be the key to thwarting the Fatal Five?
Justice League vs The Fatal Five is directed by Reign of the Supermen director Sam Liu and executive produced by Batman: The Animated Series’ Bruce Timm. There is no official release date as yet.
