‘Justice League: Gods and Monsters’ Review

1 August 2015 12:39 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Benjamin Bratt, Michael C. Hall, Tamara Taylor, Paget Brewster, C. Thomas Howell, Jason Isaacs, Dee Bradley Baker, Eric Bauza, Larry Cedar, Richard Chamberlain, Trevor Devall, Dan Gilvezan, Grey Griffin, Daniel Hagen, Penny Johnson Jerald | Written by Alan Burnett, Bruce Timm | Directed by Sam Liu

Plot:

In an alternate reality, the Justice League is a brutal force that the World fears and distrusts. So when the Jl are framed for a series of murders, no-one is exactly jumping to their defence and it is up to Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman to figure this out for themselves and ultimately save the day.

Verdict:

Now this is more like it.

After efforts like Justice League:War, Son of Batman and Batman vs Robin. Justice League: Gods and Monsters is a real breath of fresh air and a sign that DC Animation can be as good as they used to be, which was a long while ago. »

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Justice League: Gods and Monsters’

24 July 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Bruce Timm has achieved legendary status in certain circles for his contributions to Warner Bros. Animation — including the “Justice League” TV series — and returns to that niche in a dazzling way with “Justice League: Gods and Monsters,” an original alternate-universe rewrite of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman’s origins. Conceived by Timm and writer Alan Burnett, this direct-to-Blu-Ray release plays like a mind-bending fever dream, owing a spiritual debt to Frank Miller’s “The Dark Knight Returns” but standing very much on its own. Clearly calibrated to wow comics aficionados, anyone who can distinguish Batman from Man-Bat will want this baby on their shelves.

In this bizarre (no, not Bizarro) world, Superman (Benjamin Bratt), Batman (Michael C. Hall) and Wonder Woman (Tamara Taylor) operate out of the Tower of Justice, working on behalf of a government that capitalizes on their talents but fears it cannot control them. When the President »

As part of our 2015 San Diego Comic-Con International coverage, david j. moore chats with Justice League: Gods and Monsters director Sam Liu, writer Alan Burnett and voice actors Paget Brewster and Tamara Taylor

The DC Universe original movie Justice League: Gods and Monsters (out on DVD and Blu Ray July 28th From Warner Bros.) flip-flops DC’s stable characters by throwing them all in an alternate universe where they are not their famous, Justice-seeking selves. Instead, the characters are given vastly different identities (Batman, for example, is a vampire), and they become involved in a conspiracy that casts them in a dark, sinister light. At 2015’s San Diego Comic Con, several key members of the cast and crew were on hand to discuss their involvement with the film. Amongst those interviewed for this article are director Sam Liu (Superman/Batman: Public Enemies), writer/producer Alan Burnett (Batman: Mask of the Phantasm »

Justice League: Gods & Monsters Trailer Features a Vampire Batman

16 April 2015 5:38 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

While maybe not quite exciting as the Star Wars trailer, Warner Bros. Home Video has unveiled the trailer for its next direct-to-video DC Comics title Justice League: Gods & Monsters. 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. Directed by Sam Liu (Batman: Year One), the movie is based on an original story by Timm and co-producer Alan Burnett (The Batman) and features the voices of Michael C. Hall as Batman, Benjamin Bratt as Superman, Tamara Taylor (Bones) as Wonder Woman, Jason Isaacs as Lex Luthor, Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds) as Lois Lane, and C. Thomas Howell as Dr. Will Magnus.
