If you aren’t familiar with the intergalactic villain group known as The Fatal Five, then you need to stop what you are doing right now and give a listen to our Legion Clubhouse podcast. Then, you will understand why the upcoming Justice League vs. The Fatal Five animated movie has captured our attention.
Justice League vs. The Fatal Five finds the Earth’s future hanging in the balance when the Justice League faces a powerful new threat – the Fatal Five. Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman seek answers as the time-traveling trio of Mano, Persuader and Tharok terrorize Metropolis in search of budding Green Lantern, Jessica Cruz – whom they need to free remaining Fatal Five members Emerald Empress and Validus in order to carry out their sinister plan. But the Justice League discover an ally from another time in the peculiar Star Boy – brimming with volatile power, could he be the key to thwarting the Fatal Five? An epic battle against ultimate evil awaits!
It is rather interesting that the story takes place with the current lineup of the Justice League, instead of introducing audiences the might that is the Legion of Super-Heroes. Sure, this animated movie has Star Boy, and that is a start, right?
“Justice League vs. The Fatal Five is an important addition to the DC Universe Movies, spotlighting two unlikely young heroes with real-world issues facing off against a daunting quintet of futuristic villains,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing. “We’re also are proud to have Kevin Conroy, Susan Eisenberg and George Newbern reprising their seminal roles as DC’s Trinity in the Justice League & Justice League Unlimited animated series, and believe the fans will be equally pleased with their return to these characters.”
The fate of the planet rests on the shoulders of a reluctant Green Lantern and an unstable hero from the future in “Justice League vs. The Fatal Five,” the next entry in the popular series of DC Universe Movies. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC, the feature-length animated film arrives from Warner Bros.
Justice League vs. The Fatal Five is scheduled to arrive on digital on March 30, 2019, and 4k and Blu-ray on April 16, 2019.
