Back when I reviewed DC Universe’s most excellent Superman/Batman: Public Enemies animated feature, my exploration of the special features uncovered a sneak preview of the next offering from DCE’s animated division, Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths. Taken from DC’s famous “Crisis” canon of stories, the new direct-to-DVD/Blu-ray will focus on our favorite superhero team’s perilous adventure to an alternate Earth.
Well, now an official trailer for Crisis on Two Earths has hit the web, and courtesy of IGN we have to share.
In Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths, Superman (Mark Harmon), Batman (William Baldwin), Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash and Martian Manhunter are contacted by Lex Luthor (Chris North) – only this isn’t the Lex we all know and hate, but rather a Luthor from an alternate universe where the evil genius is actually a superhero and the world has been conquered by a team of super beings much like the Leaguers themselves. With no heroes left to defend his world, alterno-Lex recruits the Justice League to come to his aid.
Take a look at the trailer for Crisis on Two Earths:
Looks like another fine entry in the DC Universe Canon. Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths will be overseen by animation guru Bruce Timm, while fellow DC Animation vets Lauren Montgomery ((Wonder Woman, Green Lantern: First Flight) and Sam Liu (Superman/Batman) will co-helm. The movie will be available on DVD/Blu-ray in Spring of 2010.
Oh, and yes, that’s James Woods you heard in the trailer – he plays the alterno-version of Batman, Owlman.
What did you think of the trailer?
