    Wherever you go, there you are.
    Some details have been revealed about Justice League: War, the DCU animated movie that will be released in late 2013 or early 2014 (an exact release date hasn't been announced yet). The director is Jay Oliva and the screenwriter is Heath Corson. The movie is an adaptation of Geoff Johns' "Justice League: Origin" story arc that kicked off the New 52 Justice League. The main voice cast is as follows:

    Batman - Jason O'Mara
    Superman - Alan Tudyk
    Wonder Woman - Michelle Monaghan
    Green Lantern - Justin Kirk
    The Flash - Christopher Gorham
    Cyborg - Shemar Moore

    Alan Tudyk?? Wonder if he'll get to say "I am a leaf on the wind, watch me soar"?

    That was two issues of story spread out over six issues.

    I'd rather be seeing pre-52 adaptations, but obviously that's not corporate synergy :p

    In the past, they've adapted a mix of recent things like the Superman/Batman comics and more classic things like Superman: Doomsday and Batman: Year One. Hopefully there will still be some older projects getting adaptations from here on in.

    You know, what I'd really like to see from the DC Universe DVD line is a movie or two (or more) wrapping up Young Justice -- distilling the high points of what would've been season 3 and giving the series some closure. And maybe a Batman: The Brave and the Bold movie. B:TAS and The Batman both got movies, so why not TB&TB?

    But they seem to be committed to new continuities rather than revisiting old ones -- since they rewrote Crisis on Two Earths to be a new continuity rather than the DCAU movie it was written to be.

    Anyone else think it's starting to become so BIZARRE how many DC animated movies keep getting released, while Warners sits on their asses and does nothing but live action Superman and Batman movies?! :p

    Be interesting to finally see the New 52 costumes in a movie, assuming they use them.

    Doesn't anyone realize this is just a lame advertisement for the New 52 Comics?;)

    I'm guessing they are waiting to reveal the voice actors for both Bruce and Arthur.

    Are you saying Bruce won't be voiced by Jason O'Mara?

    Not really. Most of the animated movies are superman, batman, or justice league staring superman and batman. So just as heavy on the big two as live action.

    That is possible. I don't think Darkseid has been revealed yet either.

    I read the first issue of the arc, and I thought it was good, so I'll go ahead and check this one out.
    I'm always impressed with how good the casts they get for these things are.

    They can still adapt classic stories, but I think they'll all be adjusted to fit the New 52 (especially costumes).

    What do you mean? I'm right here.
    God, I hate that arc. All the heroes acting out-of-character, a plot basically non-existent ...

    I mean, the first issue alone, where Hal Jordan and Batman encounter a Parademon and say to themselves "That's an alien. You know, this Superman guy is rumored to be an alien to, maybe he's connected to this". Great, the DC world's greatest detective and the guy serving in an intergalactic police both think, all aliens are alike.

    Well, the good thing about an adaptation is that they have a chance to change and improve aspects of the original work. For all my problems with the Superman/Batman: Public Enemies movie, the original comic was worse in a lot of ways, though better in a few ways (as I discussed here).
