Justice League: War Trailer Has Me Legitimately Excited for a DC Animated Movie Again

Justice League: War is the next animated movie from DC, and the first trailer has blown me away. It’s based on the opening story for the New 52 Justice League, which I thought was pretty terrible. But it looks like that story might make for a good animated movie.

I’ve been pretty lukewarm about the DC animated movies for awhile now. They’ve all been pretty shallow, by-the-numbers adaptations. I’ve really felt like the people working on them could be put to better use, because their skill in animation is second to none. But nope, they keep popping these out to medium amounts of fanfare. Well now the movies have entered the New 52, which I feel is long overdue. DC needs this kind of synergy, and I hope this movie pays off.

Better for DC to animate their New 52 comics than spend a good chunk of their efforts glorifying the old, pre-reboot stories.

  1. No Aquaman, no sell.

  2. I can’t believe they replaced Aquaman with Shazam/Captain Marvel. So disappointed…

    • I couldn’t agree more! New 52 Aquaman is amazing!

      • Not to mention we’ve got another “Superman” expy on the team. Seriously, Wonder Woman, Superman, and Shazam literally have the same powers. Flight, Super-strength, enhanced durability (in Superman’s case invulnerability). Aquaman at least could command fish. Useless, sure, but at least he was a bit different from Superman and Wonder Woman.

      • It’s very true. But DC is big into their remake of Shazam. Though I wonder if this animated Shazam will be as much of an asshole as the new comic book Shazam.
