Animated Justice League Movies In Order.
Justice League New Frontier is the first DC Comics animated film to star all of the main members of the Justice League and is the second Dc Universe original movie with the first one being Superman: Doomsday and the third being Batman: Gotham Knight. Justice League New Frontier is released in 2008 and Grossed $5,240,621.
This is one of my favorite out of all the animated Justice League movies mainly because of the artwork and the spectacular storyline.
This Justice League film is an excellent example of successfully adapting a comic book story or graphic book novel to an animated film. The characters come to life on screen. The movie seems to have 2 main goals. One is to re-image the DC Universe as it is were in the 50s. If these characters would really exist in that era , how would scenarios play out differently as compared to today? And the second goal is to explore the concept of a free nation from a super hero angle. Its the age old theme of human beings being afraid of getting rid of something that they don’t understand under the pretense of self preservation. We have superheros that uphold the American ideal of freedom. Freedom to go your own way without the govern to control your actions and freedom from persecution. But you also got a government that is afraid of what they cant control. This movie touches the sensitive concept that it is not always black and white. what would the government do if there were authorities that they cannot control? In this movie, Superman is left unchallenged by the government but the other members of the Justice league are branded a threat – probably because the government cant do anything to superman even if they tried.
Justice League Crisis On Two Earths is such a treat. The only thing that bothered me and most of my friends were the voice acting. Dc did not use their original voice actors such as Tim Daly (Superman) or Kevin Conroy (Batman) so if you can get pass that then the storyline is mind blowing. I love the parallel universe concept and this movie divulged into that theme.
So the Justice League is approached by Lex Luthor from another universe and he asks for help on his own universe where all the heroes are villains and apparently all the villains are heroes. I was treated to see what the Justice League would look like if they were villains and this movie explores all of that. The Justice League’s counter part name are the Crime Syndicate and these doppelganger have one goal in mind: world domination.
Ultimately the voice acting was poor and very bland. Once I got past that, the action and fight scenes were spectacular. Owl Man versus Batman, Ultra Man versus Superman, Flash versus Johnny Quick, and Wonder Woman versus Super Woman – what more do you want? I do recommend this Justice League movie as a rental but be warned about the voice acting. Seems like any Batman movie without Kevin Conroy as the voice of Batman will not give me the Batman feel that I want.
Justice League Doom is amongst the newest animated Justice League movies with Kevin Conroy as the voice of Batman. Many original voice actors that we grew up with came back as well such as Tim Daly as superman and Susan Eisenberg as Wonder Woman. This Justice League movie is centered around the Legion of Doom and its founder, Vandal Savage. Vandal Savage has never truly had his moment besides a few episodes on the Justice League Unlimited so this Justice League movie gives him great honer because Vandal Savage is such a great villain and he needs more ‘on screen love’!
Batman Movies – Justice League Doom is the newest animated movie in a long and successful line of DC animated films. Justice League Doom is the thirteenth animated film from Dc Comics and a very successful adaptation from comics to animated film. Marvel is falling behind and Dc Comics is pumping out movie after movie to steer the fans to Dc Comics. It seems like Marvel is focusing on the big screen with their upcoming movie The Avengers and other upcoming projects. According to Wikipedia.Org, Marvel has launched a total of 8 animated films and the last one was in 2011 for Thor: Tales of Asgard – which was great but the super hero fan base is growing and we need more. Dc Comics has now launched 13 animated film with 2 upcoming films titled Superman Versus The Elite and The Dark Knight Returns – which I assume is a continuation from The Dark Knight Rises.
Justice League Doom Plot
As mentioned in another post, Justice League Doom is derived from the Justice League story Arc titled JLA tower of Babel which focuses on Batman’s plans for the JLA team for if they go rogue. Batman has detailed plans on neutralizing each and every main JLA member hidden in his Bat-cave hard drive. The enemy team, calling themselves Legion Of Doom, would steal the plans and use the plans to take down the Justice League.
In Justice League Doom, Vandal Savage is the founding leader for the team whom employs Cheetah, Metallo, Mirror Master, Ma’alefa’ak, and Bane to neutralize each member of the JLA team with the plans stolen from Batman. The Legion of Doom succeeds in stealing the plans and begins to take out the JLA team one by one until Batman escapes from his parent’s coffin (whom Bane traps Batman in with his dead parents) and alerts the whole JLA team of the situation. Cyborg makes a great appearance and assists the JLA team. Since Cyborg isn’t a member of the JLA, there is no data on him thus making Cyborg a great ally against the Legion Of Doom.
