Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths comes out next Tuesday

Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths

I can’t wait!  Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths comes out next Tuesday, February 23, on Blu-Ray and DVD!  This has the potential to be one of the best DC animated movies yet.  Here is the description from the official movie web site:

In a parallel universe, the lone survivor of Earth’s Justice League-Lex Luther-travels through other-world dimensions to join forces with Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, and J’onn J’onzz in a desperate attempt to save his world and its people.  But the villainous Crime Syndicate controlled by Ultraman, Owlman and Superwoman will stop at nothing to maintain their domination.  It will take wits, might and a sacrifice to defeat these unforgiving enemies in this spectacular DC Universe Animated Original Movie with a stellar voice cast headed by Mark Harmon, James Woods, Chris North, Gina Torres, William Baldwin, Bruce Davison and more.  Two Earths, two Leagues and one epic battle collide for a thrilling experience that will leave you breathless!

This story written by Dwayne McDuffie is loosely based upon Justice League of America #29-30 written by Gardner Fox in 1964, as well as the 1999 Grant Morrison JLA: Earth 2 graphic novel.  While Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths isn’t a direct adaptation of either source material, certain elements originated in those stories (i.e. The Crime Syndicate, the good Lex Luthor seeking help from the Justice League, etc).

Here is the trailer for the film:

There is also the Spectre animated short to look forward to:

DC Showcase – The Spectre: The first animated short in the all-new DC Showcase series focuses on a detective story with an ethereal twist, featuring the otherworldly character originally introduced by DC Comics in 1940. The short is written by Steve Niles (30 Days of Night), and the voice cast includes Gary Cole (Entourage) and Alyssa Milano (Charmed).

Finally, Firestorm and the Justice League Detroit folks make cameos in the film.  Next Tuesday can’t get here soon enough!

    I agree – this will be awesome. Will have to wait a little longer here but when the Martian Manhunter pulls moves like that, it’s worth it!

    It’s surprising that this particular release, which has no apparent media tie-ins (ie action figure releases or pack-ins) is also one that seems to sell itself based on it’s actual content.

    I am very excited to add this one to my collection.
