Machinima has debuted the trailer for Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles, the companion digital series to the upcoming feature. Check it out in the player below featuring an introduction from creator Bruce Timm and see the first episode on June 8th!
Witness a divergent reality where the Justice League protects the planet – but answers to no one but themselves. Employing methods of intimidation and fear, this Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman deal brute force in the name of justice. From the creative genius of executive producer Bruce Timm and co-producer Alan Burnett comes an original story where the world’s greatest triumvirate of super heroes has distinctly different origins. Superman was not raised by the Kents in Smallville, the Caped Crusader is not Bruce Wayne, and Wonder Woman is not an Amazon warrior of Themyscira. They are as likely the world’s saviors as Earth’s despotic rulers. When a group of famed scientists experience untimely “accidents,” a government task force follows the trail of clues to the Justice League – but is there a more powerful player operating from the shadows? It’s a high stakes game of intrigue, mystery and action that asks the question: How do you serve justice to those above the law?
With a twist on your favorite Justice League characters, this film is full of thrilling new adventures and jam-packed with a celebrity voice cast which includes Michael C. Hall (“Dexter”) as Batman, Benjamin Bratt (“Law & Order,” “24”) as Superman, Tamara Taylor (“Bones”) as Wonder Woman, Paget Brewster (“Criminal Minds”) as Lois Lane, Jason Isaacs (“Harry Potter” films) as Lex Luthor and C. Thomas Howell (E.T., “Southland”) as Dr. Will Magnus.
