JUSTICE LEAGUE: THE FLASHPOINT PARADOX Trailer Debuts
"World War III...Maybe I could've stopped it, if I just ran a little faster..."
The trailer for Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox debuted on IGN earlier this week, giving us our first solid look at the upcoming animated film based on the DC Comics limited series Flashpoint. When time travel changes an event for Barry Allen, The Flash, and his family, the event’s temporal ripples prove disastrous, creating a fractured, alternate reality where the Justice League never formed, and Superman is nowhere to be found. Trapped in an alternate Earth being ravaged by a fierce war between Wonder Woman’s Amazons and Aquaman’s Atlanteans, Flash must team with a grittier, more violent Batman and government agent Cyborg to restore the continuity of Flash’s original timeline.
"The Speed Force allows the Reverse-Flash to travel through time," The Flash (Justin Chambers) tells Batman as we see the Reverse-Flash (C. Thomas Howell) detonating an explosive device.
An alternate Batman, voiced by Kevin McKidd, says to Barry Allen, "He changed something in the past." Barry replies, "We have to find out what he changed and change it back before they kill everyone on the planet." We then see Alternate Batman attempting to restore Barry's lost super-speed powers using an electric chair.
"In my world, I'm a hero," Barry says to his mother Nora Allen, who was never killed in this alternate timeline. "You mean like Batman?" replies Nora.
"No matter how fast you run, you can't save everyone," remarks the Reverse-Flash, as we see quick images of Wonder Woman, Lois Lane, Captain Atom, Green Lantern Hal Jordan and Cyborg.
"War's over, everybody lost," remarks the alternate Batman as we see the Rogue known as The Top and the exterior of the Flash Museum. "You'd be amazed the monsters this world can create..."
Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox is scheduled to arrive on DVD, Blu-Ray, On Demand and digital download on July 30, 2013. If you'd like to see the trailer, you can view it below thanks to DC Comics on YouTube...
