Someone should tell Bruce Timm that he’s supposed to be the one who receives gifts on his birthday, not us! Finally, DC and Warner Bros. Animation released the official trailer for the highly anticipated Justice League vs. The Fatal Five on the executive producer’s 58th birthday. Coincidence? We think not!
Fans of the Justice League series starring Kevin Conroy (Batman), Susan Eisenberg (Wonder Woman), and George Newbern (Superman) will be thoroughly excited to hear their old friends are back in action, with some new members to boot. The League has to face a new time-traveling Fatal Five that is hunting the up-and-coming Green Lantern, Jessica Cruz, voiced by Diane Guerrero.
Cruz was first introduced during DC Comics' New 52 relaunch in 2014. It’s a shame Phil LaMarr didn’t reprise his role as the original series Green Lantern, John Stewart, but the new blood is a welcome change.
The rest of the voice cast is made up of Elyes Gabel (Thomas Kallor/Star Boy), Peter Jessop (Thorak), Tom Kenny (Bloodsport), Matthew Yang King (The Persuader), Sumalee Montano (Emerald Empress), Philip Anthony-Rodriguez (Mano), Daniela Bobadilla (Miss Martian), Kevin Michael Richardson (Mr. Terrific), Noel Fisher (Brainiac 5 ), and Tara Strong (Saturn Girl).
The trailer, which comes via IGN, didn’t spell out exactly when we can expect to see this bombastic crossover, but Justice League vs. The Fatal Five is likely to drop later in 2019 on Digital, Blu-ray, and 4K Ultra HD.
