Storyline

In an alternate universe, Superman is the son of Zod and was raised by a caring couple of Mexican immigrants living in harsh conditions, Batman is a young vampiric doctor, Kirk Langstrom, obsessed with an everlasting search for a cure for his disease and Wonder Woman is Bekka, the widowed queen of the world of Darkside. The three antiheroes unite and create the Justice League, despite wheelchair-bound Lex Luthor and others' protests. They operate often outside of the law and often kill the villains, but the US government tolerates them and works with them to an extent, since the three are willing to cooperate with the authorities and they never kill civilians. However, the all out paranoia and protests against their methods and untouchable position are growing. Things take a turn for the worse, when they are framed for a series of murders of famous scientists, who work for the government, and President Amanda Waller orders their arrest. They decide to violently resist arrest at all ...

Trivia

During the first flashback (Kirk Langstrom/Batman) Dr. Magnus refers to "Crazy Ivy" who is going to bring her "home grown." This is a nod to Poison Ivy of the main DC continuity, a super villain with plant and flora abilities. See more »

Goofs

During the opening credits, the incubator pod is shown rushing along at tremendous speed just above the ground, but when the wide angle is shown after the credits, there's simply a round crater as if it landed vertically. There should be a long gouge in the Earth behind it and a wall of debris built up in front of it. See more »

Quotes

Wonder Woman: Why do you even listen? They hate us.
Superman: Don't let the crowds down there fool you, Bekka. They are not la gente común, the real people. There are many who would like nothing better than for us to take over. Tell her, Kirk.
Batman: Twenty-two percent domestically, twenty-nine percent worldwide.
Superman: Revolutions have been built on less. Imagine ending all ideological squabbling. No more war, no more insurrections. All those little dots down there connected to a single, productive purpose: a world brought ...

Give It A Chance :)
22 July 2015 | by crimson_knight_7See all my reviews

In an alternate universe, the Justice League is a brutal force that maintains order on Earth. As a result of the Justice League's savage tactics, their unaccountability is ultimately challenged by the world's governments following the suspicious deaths of renowned scientists.

Admittedly, I was initially influenced by some of the negative reviews that lashed out at the concept of Justice League: Gods and Monsters; however, this DC Animated Film was surprisingly entertaining. Directed by, Sam Liu, the dark and violent atmosphere suited the overall theme of the movie. Although this is an alternate Justice League from the one I grew to love over the years, this is definitely an exciting addition to the Justice League Animated Movie Series.

7 Stars.
