The Hollywood Reporter has revealed the first bit of information regarding the upcoming DC animated film, Justice League vs. The Fatal Five.
Coming from executive producer and DC animation legend Bruce Timm, the film will be set in its own continuity and have no connection to many of the previous films in the DC animated film canon such as the upcoming Reign of the Supermen. Fans will be pleased to know that Justice League veterans Kevin Conroy, Susan Eisenberg and George Newborn will be reprising their roles of Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman for the film.
Appearing alongside DC’s trinity will be the Fatal Five, a group of villains from the future who are in search of Jessica Cruz, one of the latest recruits in the Green Lantern Corps.
Justice League vs. The Fatal Five finds the fate of the earth hanging in the balance when the Justice League faces a powerful new threat — the Fatal Five! Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman seek answers as the time-traveling trio of Mano, Persuader and Tharok terrorize Metropolis in search of budding Green Lantern, Jessica Cruz. With her unwilling help, they aim to free remaining Fatal Five members Emerald Empress and Validus to carry out their sinister plan. But the Justice League has also discovered an ally from another time in the peculiar Star Boy — brimming with volatile power, could he be the key to thwarting the Fatal Five? An epic battle against ultimate evil awaits!
