“Justice League: Doom” will make its West Coast premiere on Feb. 16 with a Hero Complex screening at the Paley Center in Beverly Hills with a limited number of free tickets available for fans.
Hero Complex lead writer Geoff Boucher will moderate a Q&A with the filmmakers and members of the cast after the screening.
“Justice League: Doom,” the latest DC Universe animated original movie from Warner Home Video, takes its core plot from Mark Waid’s memorable “Tower of Babel” story arc (which was published back in 2000 in the pages of DC Comics) although there are considerable differences. In both the comics and film, the world’s greatest heroes are all placed in danger when villains get their hands on Batman’s secret files — which indexes the weaknesses of all his teammates and precise tactical plans for taking them down.
The film features Nathan Fillion (“Castle”) as Green Lantern, Tim Daly (“Private Practice”) as Superman, Kevin Conroy (“Batman: The Animated Series”) as Batman, Michael Rosenbaum (“Smallville”) as Flash, Susan Eisenberg (“Superman/Batman: Apocalypse”) as Wonder Woman, Carl Lumbly (“Alias”) as Martian Manhunter and Bumper Robinson (“A Different World”) as Cyborg. As for the bad guys, there are three alumni of the “Justice League” animated series: Phil Morris as Vandal Savage, Olivia d’Abo as Star Sapphire, and Alexis Denisof as Mirror Master. There’s also Carlos Alazraqui (“Reno 911”) as Bane, Paul Blackthorne (“The Dresden Files”) as Metallo and Claudia Black (“Farscape”) as Cheetah. David Kaufman (“Danny Phantom”) also reprises his “Justice League” role of Jimmy Olsen.
The filmmaking team includes executive producer Bruce Timm, director Lauren Montgomery, producer Alan Burnett and dialogue/casting director Andrea Romano. “Justice League: Doom” also represents the final DC Universe film script from the late Dwayne McDuffie.
“Justice League: Doom” arrives Feb. 28 as a Blu-Ray Combo Pack or as a DVD; it will also be available On Demand and via download.
