After Marvel started rolling out their successful direct to DVD animated features starting with Ultimate Avengers: The Movie, DC decided to respond with a new slate of animated films themselves. The first of these, Superman: Doomsday, hits stores on September 18th. But perhaps the most intriguing project they have in the works is the upcoming Justice League: New Frontier, based on Darwyn Cooke’s award-winning mini-series DC: The New Frontier. The story is set during the 50’s, bridging the gap between the Golden Age and Silver Age of DC comics. I’ve always thought we need more comic book movies set during this era, so I’m definitely on board. The voice cast includes a lot of big names such as Kyle MacLachlan as Superman, Jeremy Sisto as Batman, Lucy Lawless as Wonder Woman, and Neil Patrick Harris as The Flash. On YouTube, you can now watch a preview that was shown at this year’s Comic Con. Although it’s mostly interviews and there isn’t a ton of footage, it should be enough to get you excited! Justice League: The New Frontier will be released on January 28, 2008.
