We still don’t know what DC will do with their long-rumored live action Justice League film, but their animated projects keep on rolling out — and here’s the first trailer for a Flashpoint-inspired flick.

Dubbed Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, the new animated feature is based on Geoff Johns' 2011 crossover comic. The series served as a setup for the New 52 relaunch, and found the Flash and a few other heroes noticing major differences between the established and altered timelines.

The trailer looks like the film should be pretty close to the comic canon, and should be a worthy addition to their excellent slate of animated flicks. It makes you wonder why DC doesn’t just put their animated development team in charge of the live-action Justice League and let it roll.

The film will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray July 30.
