Unfortunately, the classic Justice League and Justice League Unlimited animated series aren’t getting a full fledged revival anytime soon. But three of the key cast members are reuniting for the upcoming Justice League vs. The Fatal Five movie. Via The Hollywood Reporter, Kevin Conroy will headline the animated film as Batman. Susan Eisenberg will also return as Wonder Woman, with George Newbern as Superman.
THR’s report also revealed that the film’s plot will revolve around the Fatal Five, the Legion of Super-Heroes’ villains from the far future.
“Justice League vs. The Fatal Five finds the fate of the earth 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. With her unwilling help, they aim to free remaining Fatal Five members Emerald Empress and Validus to carry out their sinister plan. But the Justice League has also discovered 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!”
