DC Announces Justice League: War As Their First Animated Movie Of 2014
Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox is set to premiere this week at San Diego Comic Con. There has been some speculation with DC/WB doing the Flashpoint story as their next animated movie that we might be close to a getting an animated feature based off the New 52. That speculation has become a reality now, as DC has announced that they will be indeed doing a story based off the newer sets of stories.
What better way to kick off the New 52 animated movies than with the story that started it all in Geoff Johns and Jim Lee’s Justice League: Origins. All though the title for the movie will actually be Justice League: War. Check out the tweet from Super PR man Gary Miereanu announcing the film below.

Justice League: Origins was the first book released by DC when it kicked off the New 52. The book brings all of the DC’s flagship characters together for the first time in the New 52 world. There seems like a changing of the gaurd in terms of voice casting as well. Gone are the familiar voices of Tim Daly and Kevin Conroy. Instead we get a fresh bunch of voice actors including, Jason O’Mara as Batman, Alan Tudyk as Superman, Michelle Monaghan as Wonder Woman, Justin Kirk as Green Lantern, Christopher Gorham as The Flash, and Shemar Moore as Cyborg. Notable DC animated director Jay Oliva has also been confirmed for the project as well.
Some things are up in the air still. Such as who will voice Darkseid and will the story stick to the comic or take liberties. While those things are unknown, it’s still pretty exciting to see what they are going to do with the New 52 on the animated platform.
