Justice League: Doom Pictures and Casting News
October 1, 2011

The original DC Animated film for 2012 will be Justice League: Doom, based on JLA: Tower of Babel, written by Mark Waid. That’s the storyline where the Justice League is taken down using Batman’s secret contingency plans to exploit each member’s weaknesses.

The voice casting news for this film is great, bringing back plenty of familiar names and old favorites to play the characters, including:

New to the group is Cyborg, voiced by Bumper Robinson. In the movie, the Justice League faces off with a number of villains, including the Royal Flush Gang, Vandal Savage (Phil Morris), Star Sapphire (Olivia d’Abo), Mirror Master (Alexis Denisof), Bane (Carlos Alazraqui), Metallo (Paul Blackthorne), and the Cheetah (Claudia Black).

Justice League: Doom is the final script from the much-missed Dwayne McDuffie, who also wrote the All-Star Superman movie. Directing and co-producing is Lauren Montgomery.

The movie trailer will be first aired at the Warner Home Video panel at the New York Comic Con. It will also be included on Batman: Year One, the original DVD coming out later this month.

If I recall correctly, back in the day, Doctor Doom would fill his castle up with traps that were specifically designed to exploit the weaknesses of each member of the Fantastic Four. We learned two things from this: That he did it because he was not a nice man and wanted to exploit your weaknesses for personal gain like all of the bad people in the real world. And because it provided the Fantastic Four a chance to show how clever, resourceful, and heroic they were. Like how we wish we were.

This type of story line puts Batman in the role of the villain, and makes having villains pointless. That in turn makes having superheroes pointless since they’re pretty much the source of the problems instead of the reaction to them. They’re no longer the fantasy characters they should be, they’re us with tighter abs.

I’ve been told by many people that it’s not the idea, it’s the execution. In modern superhero stories, it pretty much has to be.

It sound like you have not read the story this is based on. This story stems from and extension of Batman as a bit paranoid and having plans to take down each member of the JLA should they go rouge. The plans somehow end up in the villains hands and they are the ones executing them. If this video is done as well as the story it is based on it will be a fun film.
