Justice League: Gods and Monsters – SDCC Panel, Interviews, Premiere!


We have exclusive interviews from SDCC! We have a review of the World Premiere screening and panel at SDCC! But first, here’s a new preview of today’s Blu-ray combo pack release!

Animation legend Bruce Timm returns to the popular DC Universe Original Movies with his unique new vision of a Justice League you’ve never seen before. Justice League: Gods & Monsters features a Superman born of General Zod’s blood, a Batman with a healthy dose of bat in the man, and a Wonder Woman rising from the ranks of the New Gods. This ain’t your daddy’s Justice League. They are as likely the world’s saviors as Earth’s despotic rulers. When a group of famed scientists experience untimely “accidents,” a government task force follows the trail of clues to the Justice League into a high stakes game of intrigue, mystery and action that asks the question: How do you serve justice to those above the law?

We witnessed the World Premiere screening of this all-new film, and stayed for an entertaining panel, led by executive producer Bruce Timm (Batman:The Animated Series); Tamara Taylor (Bones), voice of Wonder Woman; C. Thomas Howell (E.T., Southland), voice of Dr. Will Magnus; Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds), voice of Lois Lane; director Sam Liu, co-producer/screenwriter Alan Burnett, and dialogue director Andrea Romano.

Moderator Victor Lucas (Electric Playground) presented exclusive prizes for a few lucky fans, and asked questions from the cast and crew, before opening it up to audience questions. At the end, Bruce Timm announced that he will be coming back to SDCC in 2016 to present the World Premiere of The Killing Joke, which brought loud applause from the audience, and started people speculating over who would play The Joker.

Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman all have different origin stories in this movie, although Superman’s is the closest to the original, except for one major twist of fate. Batman and Wonder Woman are completely different origins. Batman isn’t Bruce Wayne, and Wonder Woman isn’t an Amazon Princess from Paradise Island. The fates of many DC comics characters are intertwined in this story as well, which certainly makes it very interesting. Of course, there were many themes surrounding ultimate power, morality, control, and serving and protecting freedom rather than dictating what people should do. The Justice League struggles with all of these themes during this film, showing a human element to these characters that is rarely ever seen. We certainly recommend that you add it to your Warner Bros/DC collection. You won’t be disappointed.

The all-star voice cast also includes Michael C. Hall (Dexter) as Batman, Benjamin Bratt (Law & Order, 24) as Superman, Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter films, Dig) as Lex Luthor, Richard Chamberlain (Dr. Kildare, The Thorn Birds) as Highfather, and Tahmoh Penikett (Battlestar Galactica) as Steve Trevor. Justice League: Gods & Monsters is now available from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Digital HD and as a Blu-ray™ Combo Pack.

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.
