DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation have just revealed their new animated feature out on July 30: Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox. It’s based on the Flashpoint mini-series by Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert that launched the New 52 back in 2011. While I didn’t much care for Flashpoint as a comic, I can see it making for a decent animated movie. Plus we’ll get to see Wonder Woman in this cool outfit again:
I’m all about variant outfits and alternate realities. The Flashpoint: Wonder Woman and the Furies series was a disappointment, suffering from some obviously rushed artwork and a story that tied into a bunch of other books I didn’t want to buy, but the idea itself was sort of interesting. The Atlantean/Themysciran alliance and subsequent war, with the Amazons taking over the United Kingdom, is a crazy, cool idea that could be a lot of fun in animated form.
The press release announcing the movie revealed that Vanessa Marshall will be the voice of Wonder Woman. She’s played Wonder Woman before in Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths, and has also starred as Black Canary in Young Justice, Poison Ivy in Batman: The Brave and the Bold, and several other comic-related roles. Also, Dana Delany is back as Lois Lane, reprising her role from Superman: The Animated Series, and the legendary voice of Batman Kevin Conroy will play the Dark Knight once again.
Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox is out on Blu Ray/DVD/digital download/etc. this summer, and it looks like it could be a lot of fun. I don’t think it worked so well as a comic, but one movie combining the best of the innumerable mini-series with the main plot might be really cool. I’m definitely going to check it out.
