Release Date And Partial Cast List For DC Animation’s Flashpoint Paradox Revealed
DC revealed a new line-up of animated features for 2013 last year. With Superman: Unbound about to be released, that means the next direct-to-video flick will be one based on Flashpoint. Today Newsarama revealed the first official pic as well as some info about the release.
The new film called Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox will hit Blu-ray combo pack, DVD, and digital download on July 30. The story is based on Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert‘s 2011 arc that set the wheels in motion for the 52 relaunch. The story will be similar to the comics, as you can tell from the official description:
When time travel allows a past wrong to be righted for The Flash and his family, the ripples of the event prove disastrous as a fractured, alternate reality now exists where a Justice League never formed, and even Superman is nowhere to be found. Teaming with a grittier, more violent Dark Knight and Cyborg, Flash races to restore the continuity of his original timeline while this new world is ravaged by a fierce war between Wonder Woman’s Amazons and Aquaman’s Atlanteans. With breath taking action and an all-star voice cast, it’s a bold, emotional vision that will forever change the landscape of the DC Universe.
Besides that info and the first pic, which you can see as the article’s banner, a few of the cast members were also unveiled. Kevin Conroy will play Bruce Wayne/Batman in the pre-Flashpoint sections of the film, Ron Perlman will be Slade Wilson/Deathstroke, and Dana Delany returns as Lois Lane. Vanessa Marshall will also be coming back as Wonder Woman. The site promises other characters like Flash, Reverse Flash, Thomas Wayne and Aquaman will be announced soon. What do you think about the logline for the film? Will you be picking this one up?
