Justice League Detroit in upcoming “Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths” DVD

I just finished watching the animated movie Superman/Batman: Pubic Enemies.  I liked the film, but I don’t think I have it in me to write a full-on review of the movie right now.  Bottom line, it was enjoyable.  Give it a try.

What did catch my eye was the sneak peek for an upcoming DC animated film entitled Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths due in Spring 2010.  This looks to be a great story featuring the Justice League’s evil counterparts from a parallel Earth, the Crime Syndicate.  I’ve always been a fan of the Crime Syndicate, so this is something I’m really looking forward to.  More importantly, looks like Justice League Detroit have cameos in the film!  Or to be more specific, Crime Syndicate versions of the Justice League Detroit.  Hooray!  That will make Frank and I happy.  Not sure if anyone else cares.

Here are some screen shots I took from the Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths featurette on the Superman/Batman: Public Enemies DVD.

Below is a shot of the Crime Syndicate Vixen with Crime Syndicate Elongated Man in the background.  In this shot she looks a little like Kraven the Hunter.

Below is another shot with Crime Syndicate Elongated Man, but this time he’s joined by two other women.  I believe the woman in the center is the Crime Syndicate Halo, but I can’t be sure.  If so, I’m not entirely sure how Halo fits into the Justice League Detroit scene.  The woman on the right is the Crime Syndicate Gypsy.

During the scene with the Justice League Detroit, the person below walked across the room.  We didn’t see anything other than their legs.  I’m hoping this is the Crime Syndicate Zatanna.

Below is the Crime Syndicate Vibe along with Superwoman (Wonder Woman of the Crime Syndicate).

Below are a couple shots of Crime Syndicate Vibe in action.  I love how they modernized his look.  The only thing missing is a hoodie, then he’d look just right for nowadays.

The footage we’ve seen shows the Martian Manhunter quite a bit.  Hopefully there will be a Crime Syndicate version of him.  Additionally, it’d be nice if we saw Crime Syndicate versions of Aquaman and Steel too.  If we’re really dreaming big, how about Dale Gunn?

Below is a sneak peek of Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths.  It’s not exactly the same as the featurette on the DVD, but quite similar. Be sure to watch for the Justice League Detroit appearances.

If you’re a fan of Justice League Detroit, be sure to check out Frank’s blog dedicated to that team.  Oh yeah, the casting of Mark Harmon as the voice of Superman was brilliant.

    This one wasn’t on my radar. It looks awfully cool. Man, DC has done well by their characters in animation. (On the other hand, I think the only thing Marvel has done that I’ve liked was Next Avengers.) Whatever happened to the announced Teen Titans: Judas Contract adaptation?
