If you are familiar with Mark Waid’s amazing run on the Justice League in the early 2000’s you are undoubtedly familiar with the story Tower of Babble. It is a story that shows the depths of Batman’s paranoia and just how far Ra’s al Ghul will go to “save the planet” from mankind. It is considered one of the very best Justice League stories ever told. That being said ‘Justice League: Doom’ is a much anticipated addition to the DC Entertainment catalog.
Justice League: Doom finds Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, Cyborg and Batman on their heels when a team of super villains discover and implement the Dark Knight’s “contingency plans” for stopping any rogue Justice League member. The story is inspired by Mark Waid’s much-heralded “JLA: Tower of Babel.”
The filmmaking team includes executive producer by Bruce Timm, director Lauren Montgomery, producer Alan Burnett and dialogue/casting director Andrea Romano. Justice League: Doom is the final DC Universe film script from the late Dwayne McDuffie.Voice cast members and filmmakers will be announced as confirmed for the event.
