Last week, we gave you a taste of the first teaser for the new Bruce Timm-produced alt-universe animated feature, Justice League: Gods and Monsters, with some darker shades of the traditional Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman personas we're used to.  Now comes the official trailer and storyline to lure you into its otherworldy lair of framed superheroes facing a formidable evil.

Here's DC's newly released synopsis:   

Journey to 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. In this alternate universe, 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. 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?

Directed by Sam Liu (Batman: Year One, All-Star Superman), Justice League: Gods and Monsters hits Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD on July 28, 2015.
