JLA Adventures: Trapped in Time synopsis, voice cast and character details revealed

This week, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment announced the “stealth” release of a new all-ages animated DC movie entitled JLA Adventures: Trapped in Time, which is set to arrive on shelves next week, with barely so much as a whisper of promotion. After debuting the cover art, The World’s Finest has now got its hands on the official synopsis, which you can read right here…

Get ready for a battle of the ages when the Justice League faces off against its archenemies, the Legion of Doom, in an all-new movie from DC Comics. A mysterious being known as the Time Trapper arises, and a sinister plan led by Lex Luthor sends the Legion of Doom back in time to eliminate Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman before they become super heroes. For Aquaman, Flash and Cyborg, along with teen super heroes Karate Kid and Dawnstar, the stakes have never been higher, the rescue mission never deadlier. So join the fight for the future as the Justice League confronts its ultimate challenge… the threat of having never existed!

As well as the synopsis, it’s also been revealed that the film’s Justice League line-up features Superman, Batman, Robin, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg, Flash, Karate Kid, and Dawnstar while The Legion of Doom roster is Lex Luthor, Cheetah, Solomon Grundy, Bizarro, Gorilla Grodd, Black Manta, Toy Man, Captain Cold and Time Trapper.

JLA Adevntures: Trapped in Time is set for release on January 21st, with a voice cast that includes  Dante Basco as Karate Kid, Grey DeLisle as Wonder Woman, Jason Spisak as The Flash, Laura Bailey as Dawnstar, Diedrich Bader as Batman, Jack DeSena as Robin and Liam O’Brien as Aquaman.

    Very similar plot to a Challenge of the Super Friends episode: Origin of the Super Friends. In that episode the Legion of Doom went back in time to prevent Superman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern from becoming heroes. Back then Hal Jordan had been the only GL on TV. I guess that between Batman’s popularity and the plethora of human GLs, someone decided to substitute Batman for GL. The original can be streamed on Amazon. It has a runtime of 22 minutes so my guess this movie will have fewer plot holes (like how did Luthor discover the heroes’ secret origins).
