In this new 2012 movie, Superman and Batman are back along with the whole Justice League gang. They must work together to bring down the evil plans of Vandal Savage and his team of villians, which includes the man who broke the bat's back BANE! As well as Metallo, Ma'alefa'ak, Cheetah, Star Sapphire and Mirror Master.
The story was great, but it wouldn't of worked without the animation team who worked on it. They did an fantastic job putting the movments with the sounds, only issue noticed was the fact that Superman's Symbol on his chest kept changing every now and then.
The work by the voice-actors in this movie was EPIC, each voice fit perfectly. Tim Daly was the voice of Superman, this wasn't his first time. In 1996 Daly became the voice of Clark Kent/Superman in "Superman: The Animated Series", Tim has spent a lot of time flying even in a plane as he played Joe Hackett in the 1990 TV series "Wings". Now Daly wasn't the only one who came over from the "Superman: The Animated Series", David Kaufman reprised his role of Jimmy Olsen in this movie.
Now The Dark Knight is also a returning voice, Kevin Conroy. If you have ever watched an animated movie with Batman in it, you have heard Kevin's voice. From the movie "Batman: Mask of the Phantasm" to the TV series "Batman Beyond", Conroy has always been the voice of Bruce Wayne.
Any Smallville fans reading? There are two people, you might have seen once or twice on that TV series. Lex Luthor was in this movie, only this time he looked like The Flash. Michael Rosenbaum also reprised his role of The Flash on this movie, most of the comic book world fans know Michael as the young Lex Luthor from Smallville. Now a good guy from Smallville as reprised their role on this movie, Phil Morris played Vandal Savage in this Justice League movie. Now he is also known for his live action role of John Jones aka Martian Manhunter in Smallville.
There once was a man named Castle, who wrote novels about mystery (but we can't talk much about him since he is from Marvel and the movie is DC). Now this man is named Hal Jordan, who is also known as the Green Lantern. The man is truly named Nathan Fillion, who is both Hal Jordan and Castle.
Now on to the Special Features.
First off is "A League of One: The Dwayne McDuffie Story", he is best known for creating the animated TV series Ben 10 as well as Static Shock. McDuffie also wrote and produced the animated series Justice League Unlimited, he co-founded Milestone Media. The video was great and I found it really easy to get into his story, since it was being told by people who knew him growing up. The only issue with this video was for new fans of the Justice League watching this, there should have been more about who he was in comic history at the start.
One of the other features that caught my eye was "Guarding The Balance", this is about the story of the plan Batman has in the case of one of the League members going rouge. One of my favorite parts of this is how they worked the comic book page images and drawing into the video, it fit in so well. It really lets you learn about how the story has some real world base.
