Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox Releases On Blu-Ray, DVD July 30 [TRAILER]
DC Comics fans have it pretty good these days. Last month's Injustice: Gods Among Us launched to near-universal praise, and Superman is getting ready to soar into theatres for Man of Steel next month.
DC's mainstream momentum is showing no signs of slowing down, as fans can look forward to Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital Download on July 30.
The Flashpoint Paradox is an animated feature film based on the DC Comics crossover event titled simply "Flashpoint." In an attempt to fix a mistake, Barry Allen (The Flash) creates a tumultous ripple in time that changes the DC universe as we know it. Wonder Woman and Aquaman are in an all-out war, Cyborg is an agent of the government, and Batman is a far more brutal version of his usual moral self. Stripped of his speedy powers, Flash must struggle against a reverse version of himself that has the ability to travel through time.
The film's star-studded voice cast is led by Justin Chambers and Kevin McKidd of Grey's Anatomy fame, who play the Flash and Thomas Wayne's Batman, respectively. Among the other notable names are Nathon Fillion as Hal Jordan/Green Lantern, Michael B. Jordan as Cyborg, Ron Pearlman as Deathstroke, Vanessa Marshall as Wonder Woman, Sam Daly as Superman, and Kevin Conroy as the true Batman, just as he's played him in the Arkham video games and various animated DC productions.
Those who own the "Flashpoint Skin Pack" in Injustice will already be familiar with the alternate appearances of Aquaman, Wonder Woman, and Deathstroke, and the film should serve as a nice gateway into one of DC's more experimental storylines. The film's plot isn't all that different from Injustice itself, which finds the Justice League fighting to stop an evil, alternate-reality version of Superman.
