Though initially teased in a bonus feature on the Reign of the Supermen home video release, the best look at Justice League vs. The Fatal Five is now here thanks to the first official trailer. Fans of the classic Batman/Superman/Justice League animated series from the 90s and early 00s will appreciate the animation style here as it looks like it was pulled directly from those pixel-perfect series, and the core cast of those shows are back in action as well.
In the upcoming feature, the fate of the planet rests on the shoulders of a reluctant Green Lantern and an unstable hero from the future. Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman seek answers as the time-traveling trio of Mano, Persuader and Tharok terrorize Metropolis in search of budding Green Lantern, Jessica Cruz. They’re searching for Cruz as she is the key to freeing the remaining Fatal Five members, Emerald Empress and Validus, in order to carry out their sinister plan. But the Justice League discover an ally from another time in the peculiar Star Boy, whose volatile power could just be the key to thwarting the Fatal Five.
