Much in the same way that the “Flashpoint” event in DC Comics ended an era and ushered in The New 52, DC’s latest home video release Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox will serve as a lead-in to its next title, Justice League: War. This shouldn’t be a shock considering how Flashpoint ended, especially with the after credits stinger even more solidifying the teased adaptation of Darkseid’s first invasion, as seen in the early issues of The New 52’s Justice League comic written by Geoff Johns.
I’m not a huge fan of the translation of Superman and Wonder Woman’s New 52 outfits, but overall the film seems more or less in line with the animation and style of Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox. Additionally, the trailer gives us the first bit of audio of fan-favorite Alan Tudyk’s (Firefly) take on Superman. Also interesting is the inclusion of Billy Batson/Captain Marvel/Shazam, since he didn’t become involved until much later in the source material.
Justice League: War will be released on Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital in Spring of 2014.
