Justice League: War’s Andrea Romano, James Tucker, & Jay Oliva Preview Tomorrow’s Release


When you get Andrea Romano, James Tucker and Jay Oliva together for a DC/Warner Bros animated project, it’s bound to be brilliant. Having worked together on previous animated films like Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Parts 1 & 2, and the Flashpoint Paradox, they are now bringing their newest masterpiece, Justice League: War, to Digital Home Video, Blu-ray, and DVD. The Digital version is already available, while the other versions will be released tomorrow, Tuesday, February 4, 2014, in stores everywhere.

Justice League: War is adapted from the comic book series by Geoff Johns and Jim Lee, 2011’s Justice League: Origin. The New 52 Justice League comes together for the first time in animated form to save the world from being decimated by the evil Darkseid, voiced by the always amazing Steve Blum. The rest of the cast are equally as amazing, including Jason O’Mara as Batman, Alan Tudyk as Superman, Michelle Monaghan as Wonder Woman, Christopher Gorham as Flash, Sean Astin as Shazam, Justin Kirk as Green Lantern, and making an incredible animation debut, Shemar Moore as Cyborg. You will discover, in our exclusive interview, how well Shemar Moore took control of the role of Cyborg, as explained by Andrea Romano, the casting and voice director for Justice League: War.

Cyborg’s complete origin story is contained within the storyline of Justice League: War. And, in truth, the origin of the Justice League as a whole, has its roots in this movie. This is the first time many of the heroes are meeting each other, and it doesn’t necessarily feel like “Superfriends”, if you know what that 70’s and 80’s cartoon was like. As Producer James Tucker describes in our interview, they “don’t necessarily gel well”. There is conflict among the superheroes, and they have to come together as a team to battle Darkseid.

Director Jay Oliva talks about how he thinks the Wonder Woman character in Justice League: War could be the model that a live-action Justice League film would want to adapt. In our interview with Jay, he talks about how Wonder Woman had “some of the best animation sequences” in the movie. She certainly pulls no punches when facing the parademons. This may be one of the most powerful versions of Wonder Woman we have seen in animated form.

Check out these interviews from ToonBarn’s Marc Morrell, at New York Comic Con, where he talked to Andrea, James, and Jay, respectively, about Justice League: War.

When you see Justice League: War on digital home video, Blu-ray or DVD, make sure you watch through the end credits for a special preview of another movie coming in the near future from DC and Warner Bros Home Entertainment. We won’t spoil it for you, but it isn’t Son of Batman, because everyone knows that film is coming out later this year.

Justice League: War is available now digitally, and will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on Feb. 4.

I am a Big Fan of all types of animation. Like a lot of things, the cream always rises to the top. My favorites have included Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Rebels, anything Pixar, Phineas and Ferb, Voltron Legendary Defender, and the DC/WB Animated Films. I have a lot of Old School favorites as well, such as Star Blazers, Voltron, Looney Toons, Tom & Jerry, and Scooby Doo.
