When the first trailer for Justice League vs. The Fatal Five dropped earlier this week, we’d suspected that much more info regarding the next DC Universe animated movie would be right around the corner. Luckily, we and other fans of superheroes in general have now been imparted with much knowledge pertaining to the highly anticipated release.
First off, let it be known that our forecasting for a spring debut was spot-on. In fact, you’ll be able to get your hands on a copy on April 16th when the flick hits shelves via 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack and Blu-ray Combo Pack formats. Or, if you prefer digital, you’ll have your chance to experience the adventure slightly earlier on March 30th.
Before we go any further, let’s check out the official synopsis:
Justice League vs. The Fatal Five finds the Earth’s future hanging in the balance when the Justice League faces a powerful new threat – the Fatal Five. Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman seek answers as the time-traveling trio of Mano, Persuader and Tharok terrorize Metropolis in search of budding Green Lantern, Jessica Cruz – whom they need to free remaining Fatal Five members Emerald Empress and Validus in order to carry out their sinister plan. But the Justice League discover an ally from another time in the peculiar Star Boy – brimming with volatile power, could he be the key to thwarting the Fatal Five? An epic battle against ultimate evil awaits!
In case you hadn’t heard, the voices of the Justice League will consist of Kevin Conroy (Batman), George Newbern (Superman), Susan Eisenberg (Wonder Woman), Kevin Michael Richardson (Mr. Terrific), Diane Guerrero (Green Lantern Jessica Cruz), Elyes Gabel (Star Boy) and Daniela Bobadilla (Miss Martian). That’s an eclectic group, to say the least.
