'Justice League: Gods and Monsters' Trailer: Latin Superman & Vampire Batman

Justice League Gods and Mosnters Trailer (2015)

DC Animation's Shared Universe has two halves, one focused on the New 52 Justice League and one focused on mashups of late-2000s - present day Batman stories. In stores now is Batman vs. Robin (Read our Review), which means next on deck is a Justice League animated feature.

As seen in the trailer above, Justice League: Gods & Monsters is the sort of alternate universe tale that was presented in previous animated features like Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths, Flashpoint Paradox or Justice League: New Frontier - and like the latter, Gods & Monsters will be entirely set within an alternate version of the DCU (unlike Crisis on Two Earths or Flashpoint, which used regularly continuity as a home base).

Long time DC animated universe fans will likely be ecstatic to see animation guru Bruce Timm (Batman: TAS, Superman: TAS) involved as the story writer and producer. Even though the director is Sam Liu (Superman/Batman: Public Enemies, Batman: Year One) it's clear from this trailer that the tone (and even the look) of Bruce Timm/Paul Dini-era DC animation is alive and well in this film.

That alone will bring fans to the table open to giving this a chance. The clout Bruce Timm brings will also probably help them overlook big changes like a Latin-themed Superman or vampiric Batman...
