Next month sees the arrival of Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles, an online webseries based upon Bruce Timm’s upcoming DC Universe Animated Original Movie Justice League: Gods and Monsters, and it seems that Warner Bros. and Machinima are confident that they’ve got a hit on their hands, as a second season has just been given the green light.
Here’s the official announcement (via Bleeding Cool):
“From visionary producer and animator Bruce Timm (Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series), Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles turns the DC Universe upside-down. In this dark, alternate world, telling the good guys from the bad guys is never easy: Superman is not the son of Jor-El, he’s the son of General Zod; Wonder Woman is not from peaceful Themyscira, but rather the warring nation of Ares; and Batman is more vampire-bat than man…and he’s not Bruce Wayne. »

The animated film comes from producer/animator Bruce Timm and blends the DC Universe with Greek myth, offering up an alternate reality in which the Justice League enjoys totalitarian rule, Batman is the vampiric Man-Bat, Zod is Superman’s father, and Wonder Woman is the spawn of Ares, God of War.
