Warner Bros is releasing Justice League: Gods and Monsters, another entry in their DC Universe Original Movies in July. While some things remain the same–Lex Luthor is still trying to rule the world, and still taking potshots at the League, others are notably different. Superman is willing to consider world rule, connecting people, “all those little dots” below together under the Leagues rule, and the other members seem more intrigued than otherwise by the idea. Everyone’s costumes are just that much darker; they even manage to be sleeker than the ones we know and love.
Justice League: Gods and Monsters will be released on Digital HD on July 14, and as a Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD on July 28. Those going to the San Diego Comicon will have a chance to see the world premieremon Friday, July 10 at 7:00pm in Ballroom 20 with Tamara Taylor (Wonder Woman) and Paget Brewster (Lois Lane) in attendance.

Synopsis of Justice League: Gods & Monsters
Animation legend Bruce Timm returns to the popular DC Universe Original Movies with his unique new vision of a Justice League you’ve never seen before. “Justice League: Gods & Monsters” features a Superman born of General Zod’s blood, a Batman with a healthy dose of bat in the man, and a Wonder Woman rising from the ranks of the New Gods. This ain’t your daddy’s Justice League. 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 — and into a high stakes game of intrigue, mystery and action that asks the question: How do you serve justice to those above the law? The star-laden voice cast 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; C. Thomas Howell (E.T., Southland), as Dr. Will Magnus; Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter films, Dig) as Lex Luthor, Richard Chamberlain (Dr. Kildare, The Thorn Birds) as Highfather, and Tahmoh Penikett (Battlestar Galactica) as Steve Trevor.
