DC Universe’s next animated feature will be adapted from one of DC Comic’s more recent crossover storylines, entitled “Flashpoint.” It’s a story in which The Flash’s archnemesis, The Reverse-Flash (stick with me) travels back in time and changes an event of the past, resulting in an altered version of the DC universe. Barry Allen, because of his connection to the speed force (and therefore, temporal energy) is the one man with memory of how things should be. But convincing other (very different) versions of his Justice League teammates to set things right could be more than Barry can handle alone.
Recent Justice League: Flashpoint Paradox trailers have shown that DCU is indeed making a faithful (enough) adaptation of writer Geoff Johns and artist Andy Kubert’s miniseries, which served as the springboard for DC’s rebooted “New 52” universe – which of course helped shape their successful tentpole film, Man of Steel. With the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con right around corner, you know that DC Universe is going to make their usual big splash, once again premiering their animated feature to a room full of adoring fans.
COMIC-CON 2013 PREMIERE
Below you’ll find detailed information about DCU’s Comic-Con premiere of Flashpoint Paradox, followed by a clip from the film and a gallery of new images, featuring characters like Flash and the altered versions of Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg and run-and-gun reporter, Lois Lane:
Friday, July 19 7:30-9:30 World Premiere of Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox – Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation invite you to be the first to experience Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, the highly-anticipated next entry in the ongoing series of DC Universe Animated Original Movies. When time travel allows a past wrong to be righted for Flash and his family, the event’s temporal ripples prove disastrous, creating a fractured, alternate reality where the Justice League never formed, and even Superman is nowhere to be found. Amidst a new world being ravaged by a fierce war between Wonder Woman’s Amazons and Aquaman’s Atlanteans, Flash must team with a grittier, more violent Batman and government agent Cyborg to restore the continuity of Flash’s original timeline. Come for the film, but stay for the star-studded panel that features Grey’s Anatomy stars Justin Chambers and Kevin McKidd as Flash and Batman, respectively, along with C. Thomas Howell (Southland), Cary Elwes (The Princess Bride), Sam Daly (The Daly Show) and a few surprise voice cast members, plus the filmmaking team of producer James Tucker (Superman: Unbound), director Jay Oliva (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns), dialogue director Andrea Romano (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns), screenwriter Jim Krieg (Green Lantern: The Animated Series) and character designer Phil Bourassa (Young Justice). Moderator Gary Miereanu will add to the fun with a special announcement of the 2014 DCU movie slate, as well as exclusive, cast-autographed prizes for a few lucky fans. Based on the landmark mini-series by Geoff Johns & Andy Kubert, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox will be available as a digital download on July 19, 2013 and a Blu-ray™ Combo Pack on July 30, 2013.
