Justice League: War is the eighteenth direct-to-video animated film in the DC Universe Animated Original Movies line produced by DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation. It is an adaptation of Geoff Johns and Jim Lee's 2012 graphic novel Justice League: Origin storyline. Directed by Jay Oliva and scripted by Heath Corson, the film features the voices of Jason O’Mara, Christopher Gorham, Justin Kirk, Alan Tudyk, Michelle Monaghan, Shemar Moore, Sean Astin, Bruce Thomas and Steve Blum. Justice League: War provides a glance into the world before the Justice League was created, and offers the initial animated incarnation of DC Entertainment’s “The New 52.”
Before there was the Justice League…there was The War. When Earth is attacked by the powerful Apokoliptian, Darkseid, and his massive, relentless forces, a group of previously unaligned super heroes – misunderstood and, in some cases, hunted by the authorities – must set aside their differences to save the world. Working together as a cohesive unit, silent guardian Batman, Kryptonian alien Superman, Amazonian envoy Wonder Woman, arrogant intergalactic cop Green Lantern, Scarlet Speedster the Flash, teen super hero Shazam and, in his origin story, Cyborg assemble and combine their respect talents. As the world’s finest prepare to meet evil head-on in an all-out battle to defend mankind, will they successfully defend the planet or will they self-destruct first?
