Earlier today, the first trailer for Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earth - Part One found its way online (via ComicBookMovie.com), and it finally pulled the curtain back on what we can expect from the highly anticipated Multiversal adventure.
Unsurprisingly, The Flash is going to be front and centre in a story which will see the Fastest Man Alive race against time to save every reality in existence. Along the way, he'll encounter the Justice League's evil alternate reality counterparts, The Crime Syndicate of America, and Harbinger, a character we're sure many of you will surely remember from both the comics and the Arrowverse's take on this iconic story.
There are also at least two versions of Superman. Rather disappointingly, it doesn't look like Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earth - Part One will feature any characters from past DC animated projects. Instead, it seems to be confined to the Tomorrowverse, likely to avoid a massive, financially unviable, ensemble.
We'll update this piece when Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and DC share a full cast list (many of the voices are familiar; that's definitely Jensen Ackles as Batman), though we do have what appears to be a new synopsis for the movie.
"Death is coming. Worse than death: oblivion. Not just for our Earth, but for everyone, everywhere, in every universe!" it reads. "Against this ultimate destruction, the mysterious Monitor has gathered the greatest team of Super Heroes ever assembled."
"But what can the combined might of Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, The Flash, Green Lantern and hundreds of Super Heroes from multiple Earths even do to save all of reality from an unstoppable antimatter armageddon?!"
Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earth - Part One was first announced during July's San Diego Comic-Con along with an animated take on Watchmen. Only that vague 2024 debut was mentioned at the time, but as we first reported on Toonado.com, a listing on Amazon France has confirmed the movie will be available on DVD, Blu-ray, and 4K starting January 24, 2024.
The story is one that's been adapted on only a handful of occasions, including by The CW's Arrowverse. Before the formation of DC Studios, Warner Bros. had been planning a live-action Crisis movie with The Flash meant to set the stage for that. Unfortunately, that all changed and the movie's ending was reshot (for the third time by our count).
Since the trailer below leaked online, Warner Bros. has released an official teaser which confirms Justice League: Crisis will be released in three parts across the course of 2024. You can watch both previews below.
