Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has released a new clip from Justice League: War. It features The Flash meeting Batman for the first time, and Flash is a little bit starstruck. It's a pretty fun clip. Yesterday it was reported that this will start a cinematic continuity between the DC animated films. Comic Book Resources spoke to James Tucker, producer of Justice League: War, who had this to say,
This will definitely be the first salvo in doing new movies that are in continuity with each other. Our next movie’s going to be ‘Son of Batman,’ and that Batman will be the same Batman that you see in ‘Justice League: War.’ Basically, we’ll have two concurrent series of Justice League movies and Batman movies, and they’ll be in continuity with each other. So it’s kind of world-building.
That should definitely make these movies a lot more fun to watch. Here's the synopsis for War:
When the powerful Darkseid and his massive, relentless forces invade Earth, a group of previously unaligned super heroes – misunderstood and, in some cases, hunted by the authorities – discover the only way to fend off the attack will be to work together as a cohesive unit. Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, Shazam and, in his origin story, Cyborg combine their respective talents in an all-out battle to save the planet. Based on the 2012 graphic novel, “Justice League: Origin,” by Geoff Johns & Jim Lee, 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.”
Justice League: War is now available on DVD, Blu-ray and digital download. So it's available to watch if you want to.
