INJUSTICE Animated Movie Officially On The Way; Check Out A First Look Image And The A-List Cast
Warner Bros. Animation had nothing to say when an Injustice sneak peek was listed as one of the special features bundled with Batman: The Long Halloween, but we now have a first look and full cast list!
The studio never commented, but thanks to The Hollywood Reporter, we now know that a movie based on the Netherrealm Studios video game, Injustice: Gods Among Us, is indeed on the way. That's spawned a sequel, comic book tie-ins, and even a mobile game, and is extremely popular among fans.
We don't have an official plot synopsis just yet, but the trade notes that, "The story takes place in on an alternate Earth in which the Joker has tricked Superman into killing Lois Lane, sending the hero on a rampage. This unnhinged Superman decides to take control of Earth for its own good, leading Batman and his allies to attempt to stop him."
It's clearly following the same premise as the video game franchise, but it will be interesting to see what sort of spin director Matt Peters (Justice League Dark) and writer Ernie Altbacke (Batman: Hush) put on the story.
If you're still not convinced, then the news Rick Morales, known for Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge, is producing the project should assure you that we'll be getting some cool, bloody action scenes.
The voice cast features an insanely talented line-up of actors, including Justin Hartley as Superman, Anson Mount as Batman, Laura Bailey as Lois Lane and Rama Kushna, Zach Callison as Damian and Jimmy Olsen, Brian T. Delaney as Green Lantern, Brandon Michael Hall as Cyborg, Edwin Hodge as Mr. Terrific and Killer Croc, Oliver Hudson as Plastic Man, Gillian Jacobs as Harley Quinn, Yuri Lowenthal as Mirror Master, Flash and Shazam, Derek Phillips as Nightwing and Aquaman, Kevin Pollak as Joker and Jonathan Kent, Anika Noni Rose as Catwoman, Reid Scott as Green Arrow and Victor Zsasz, Faran Tahir as Ra’s al Ghul, Fred Tatasciore as Captain Atom, Janet Varney as Wonder Woman, and Andrew Morgado as Mirror Master Soldier.
As we said, that's quite a lineup! Check out a first look image from the movie below:
