Justice League FLashpoint at comicon (+video clip)

http://batman-news.com/2013/07/05/ju...eleased-video/

This comes out late July but will be shown at Comicon first.

This is the best animation I've seen yet from a Justice League movie.

Not too impressed by the voice work, especially Cyborg. I liked Michael B. Jordan in Chronicle, but his voice isn't interesting or strong enough by itself to be good for animation.

It's a weird mix of monotone and emotive. There's a hint of emotion, enough to save it from being too monotone, but it's not that expressive either. If it's a conscious choice, it might be a sign that this Cyborg is fighting the robotic parts. However, based on non evidence from the source material and a feeling that it's more of a poor job doing the voice than a creative choice, I just think it's a poor choice for Cyborg.

Batman sounds too...Batman-like. Not a horrible thing, but

The problem with these movies having so many different actors play the "real characters", its hard for these alternate ones to seem different.

This is gonna be better than the comic. Kevin McKidd is Thomas Wayne/Batman in this as mentioned above. Don't mind Cyborg.

I liked the animation, and I didn't think the voice work was that bad. I kind of wish they had tones down the Batman voice, but if I could put up with Bale's Bat-growl (that was my one and only issue with the Nolan movies), then shouldn't bother me too much.

Re: Justice League FLashpoint at comicon (+video clip)

Let's be clear.

This is a holocaust movie.

This is the mechanism with which DC murdered a lot of fictional characters I care about.

Good?

Now, on with the show.

Looks like the same art style from Young Justice. I like it.

^Good catch. Phil Bourassa, the lead character designer for YJ, also did the character designs for this movie. He also did the previous two Justice League DVD movies, Crisis on Two Earths and Doom.

Re: Justice League FLashpoint at comicon (+video clip)

Seems they're keen on the style. Not really anything distinctive about Andy Kubert's art for "Flashpoint" that they need to adapt other than of course the alternate reality character designs. I'm actually very hopeful for this, and as mentioned previously and in the other thread we had...this actually seems like it will be better than the actual event it's based on.

I like that design style, so I don't mind if they stick with it.

(I'm watching it right now.)

The serenity prayer?

The AA Anthem?

Yes, yes, a sickness, diagnosed mental disorder... She's a drunky.

But Barry's mum successfully passed the serenity prayer off as sage home spun wisdom.

Fricking hilarious.

oh.

Keep watching the end credits, there's a cookie after they finish rolling.

PS.

Counting Robot Chicken, this is the FOURTH time Nathan Fillion has played Hal Jordan.

Sam Daly sounds just like his father. I didn't realize that Superman wasn't voiced by Tim Daly until I looked up the movie on Wikipedia.

Re: Justice League FLashpoint at comicon (+video clip)

Comic Book Resources has a write-up of what some of the filmmakers and cast had to say about The Flashpoint Paradox at Comic-Con. Some of them spoke about how a lot of the movies going forward are going to be more connected in a new continuity than the previous DC animated movies. You can read the story here.

From NOW... The Barry Allen at the end of the story is a different human being living in a subtly different Earth from the Barry Allen at the... Well, before the beginning of the movie.

So all the new movies are going to be post new 52?

I'm don't trust that what they say is true is at all close to what will become the truth.
