Official Synopsis and Release Date for Flashpoint Animated Film Revealed

Warner Bros Home Entertainment has the year stacked with animated DC movies. Earlier this year we got Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part 2 and this May will see the release of Superman: Unbound, but it’s the next film that we’re most excited about. Newsarama has confirmed that Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, based on the miniseries by Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert, will be released on July 30, 2013. Here’s the synopsis of the film:

“When time travel allows a past wrong to be righted for The Flash and his family, the ripples of the event prove disastrous as a fractured, alternate reality now exists where a Justice League never formed, and even Superman is nowhere to be found. Teaming with a grittier, more violent Dark Knight and Cyborg, Flash races to restore the continuity of his original timeline while this new world is ravaged by a fierce war between Wonder Woman’s Amazons and Aquaman’s Atlanteans. With breath taking action and an all-star voice cast, it’s a bold, emotional vision that will forever change the landscape of the DC Universe.”

The full cast for the movie has yet to be revealed, but we do know that a lot of voice over actors will be reprising roles they’ve played previous. Kevin Conroy will play Bruce Wayne/Batman, Ron Perlman will reprise his Teen Titans role of Deathstroke, Dana Delany returns as Lois Lane, Vanessa Marshall will provide the role of Wonder Woman. The rest of the cast, Flash, Cyborg, Reverse Flash, Aquaman, and Thomas Wayne/Batman, will be revealed soon.
