On July 28, 2015, DC Comics will be releasing the direct-to-video animated film “Justice League: Gods and Monsters” on DVD, Blu-Ray, and digital download. Set in an alternate universe, the Justice League is a brutal force that maintains order on Earth. Superman is the son of General Zod, who was rocketed to Earth as a child and raised by a family of Mexican immigrants. Batman is Kirk Langstrom, a scientist who has inadvertently transformed himself into a vampire in an attempt to cure his cancer, feeding on criminals to satisfy his hunger. Wonder Woman is Bekka, who was the bride of the New God Orion. The Justice League’s unaccountability is ultimately challenged by the world’s governments following the suspicious deaths of renowned scientists.
Take a look at the teaser trailer for the upcoming release of Justice League: Gods and Monsters with an interview with legendary artist, producer and animator Bruce Timm:
