Well, the day has finally arrived! For those of you who weren’t able to go to San Diego Comic-Con, TODAY is the first time Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox has ever been available on DVD or Blu-Ray. I highly recommend Blu-Ray, if you weren’t already leaning in that direction. Some of you may have already downloaded the movie from iTunes, when it became available on the digital format on July 19th (or 20th, depending on your timezone).
Here at ToonBarn, we are celebrating today’s DVD/Blu-Ray release by presenting a series of articles and interviews from the people directly involved in making this DC Universe Animated Original Movie. ToonBarn’s Marc Morrell did get a chance to go to San Diego Comic-Con to see the World Premiere of Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox in a room full of several thousand Justice League fans. It was a really special way to see it, because the reactions of the crowd were truly authentic, as they gasped or cheered due to the actions on the screen. And there was plenty of action!
Here is the basic synopsis of Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, the highly-anticipated next entry in the ongoing series of DC Universe Animated Original Movies:
“When time travel allows a past wrong to be righted for Flash and his family, the event’s temporal ripples prove disastrous, creating a fractured, alternate reality where the Justice League never formed, and even Superman is nowhere to be found. Amidst a new world being ravaged by a fierce war between Wonder Woman’s Amazons and Aquaman’s Atlanteans, Flash must team with a grittier, more violent Batman and government agent Cyborg to restore the continuity of Flash’s original timeline.”
Even though most of what takes place in this movie is on a different timeline, most people’s reactions were very REAL, when it came to the violent nature of the characters who had been ravaged by war in a world gone wrong. The movie was very well done, in every aspect of great film-making. The sound, art, animation, voice acting, and direction were all fantastic, making this one of the BEST releases ever for Warner Bros Home Entertainment. Just in case you guys are listening, we want MORE of these movies, made for mature audiences that can truly appreciate the stories that we have seen in the comic books, but have NEVER seen on the big screen.
To kick off this Flashpoint Paradox Week on ToonBarn, we have one of the voice cast who wasn’t on the panel for The Flashpoint Paradox in San Diego Comic-Con, Nathan Fillion. Nathan did get to contribute to the panel by a special video presentation before the film was screened. He pumped up the crowd by telling them that every time they hear the name “Batman” spoken on screen, and it is used alot, they should respond by saying, “I’m Batman!” The audience did not disappoint. We all said it every time we heard “Batman”. That was fun to experience.
Nathan Fillion was asked some questions about his involvement as Green Lantern in the film, and how he feels about being a fanboy and a participant, as well as who he was a fan of, that are now his friends.
Check out these interview clips with Nathan Fillion, then watch out for more stories coming today, and every day this week, with San Diego Comic-Con interviews from the voice cast, director, voice director and writer of Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox.
