'Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox' Announced and Detailed for Blu-ray

Posted Thu Apr 18, 2013 at 08:00 AM PDT by

The next DC Comics animated movie will be based on the popular 'Flashpoint' storyline and will be released on Blu-ray this July.

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers is readying 'Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox' for Blu-ray on July 30.

When time travel allows a past wrong to be righted for Flash and his family, the event's temporal ripples prove disastrous, creating a fractured, alternate reality where the Justice League never formed, and even Superman is nowhere to be found. Amidst a new world being ravaged by a fierce war between Wonder Woman's Amazons and Aquaman's Atlanteans, Flash must team with a grittier, more violent Batman and government agent Cyborg to restore the continuity of Flash's original timeline.

"The Flashpoint Paradox has all the elements of another great film – dynamic forceful villains, treacherous twists and turns and internal tensions amongst heroes," said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Home Video Vice President, Family, Animation and Partner Brands Marketing. "Showcasing a cast that brings together some of today's popular primetime television actors with many fans' favorite voices from the original series, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is proud to release this title as the next DC Universe Animated Original Movie."

The Blu-ray/DVD/Ultraviolet Digital Copy combo pack will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: A Flash in Time: Are there other dimensions? Can time travel get us there? And if The Flash existed, could he really travel through time? Interviews with experts in mythology, theoretical physics and top DC writers will examine the science and legacy of the storytelling behind the fiction; My Favorite Villians! The Flash Bad Guys: Acclaimed DC Comics writer Geoff Johns and others share their favorite Flash villains, giving viewers a glimpse into the Flash's world through the eyes of some of the nefarious characters he has encountered over the past 70 years; Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox Audio Commentary; Sneak Peek at the next Dc Universe animated movie, spotlighting the cast and crew; and From the DC Comics Vault: Bonus cartoon episodes.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray combo is still undetermined at this time.
