‘Justice League: War’ is the next DC direct-to-video animated movie in the long-running franchise. The film will adapt the first storyline from the New 52’s relaunch of ‘Justice League’ depicting the formation of the famous team. I’m not sure how closely the story will follow the comics. I already know that unlike the books, Shazam is in the movie and Aquaman isn’t. But we’ll see.
Another, more cosmetic change is shown above. Even though the comics are just over two years old, Wonder Woman has already received another costume change. It’s similar to her “New 52” look, which swaps out her gold armor for silver and her “WW” logo has the more jagged look to it. Her normally loose locks are tied, somewhat logically in a ponytail. That probably makes better sense for charging into battle against would-be alien conquerors. Of course the biggest change are the addition of what appears to be a navy undershirt and gloves. These additions are the hardest to process. I suppose the higher neckline makes her suit more practical. The gloves/sleeves, though don’t really add anything. If she needed to be covered for protection, why not add pants while they were at it? (She was supposed to have pants at the beginning of the New 52, but that was changed before the books came out.) Also, just as an aside, the gloves/sleeves bring to mind the costume Cathy Lee Crosby wore when she portrayed Wonder Woman in a made-for-TV movie. It also brings to mind some of the funkier paint applications Mattel used in the ‘Justice League Unlimited’ toy line.
I wonder if we can expect other costume changes? Will they tweak Batman or Superman’s costume? (I’d be glad to see the return of their trunks, but maybe that’s just me.)
‘Justice League: War’ will be directed by ‘The Dark Knight Returns’ Jay Olivia and stars Alan Tudyk as Superman, Jason O’Mara as Batman, Michelle Monaghan as Wonder Woman, Christopher Gorham as The Flash, Justin Kirk as Green Lantern, Shemar Moore as Cyborg, Travis Willingham as Shazam and Steve Blum as Darkseid. It will be released sometime next year, but an exact release date hasn’t been set.
