Batman: The Animated Series co-creators Bruce Timm and Alan Burnett are set to return to the DC animated universe this year with the feature-length Justice League: Gods and Monsters (which will also lead in to an animated webseries Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles).
Thanks to Nerds on the Rocks we’ve got a selection of screenshots from project courtesy of a featurette on the Batman vs. Robin Blu-ray release, which offer up our first look at what is certainly a very different take on the traditional DC universe…Wonder Woman, Batman and Superman
Update: And here’s the sneak peek…
In the film, Superman is reimagined as the son of General Zod, with Wonder Woman one of the New Gods and Kirk Langstrom portraying Batman after injecting himself with Bat-venom in an effort to cure his cancer.
The site reports that “the movie centers around the murder of prominent DC Universe scientists like Ray Palmer, Victor Fries, Silas Stone and others that the Justice League is being framed for. They attempt to investigate these murders while dealing with mounting pressures from outside sources.”
Are you looking forward to this new take on the Justice League? Let us know your thoughts…
Justice League: Gods and Monsters is due later this year.
