A surprise came from Warner Bros. and DC, because at the current San Diego Comic Con event, they announced that they would be working on a new animated film. This film will be adapted from story arc Spectacular from DC Comics titled “Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths”.
This announcement also explained that the movie “Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths” will have an R rating, aka for adult audiences. Simultaneously, DC also announced another animated adaptation that is also R-rated, namely “Watchmen”. These two films, both “Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths” and “Watchmen”, are scheduled to be released in 2024.
Unfortunately, so far, details about this movie are still minimal. DC only announced the film’s title and displayed the official logo during its Comic Con unveiling. There have been no announcements regarding the creative staff involved in the production of this film or the voice actors.
In the comic book history itself, “Crisis on Infinite Earths” is an epic story that was first published in 1985-1986 by DC Comics. This crossover was written by Marv Wolfman with art by George Perez. The story focuses on the efforts of superheroes from multiple realities (multiverse) to unite to fight the threat of the Anti-Monitor who intends to destroy all realities and create a void in the universe.
Super heroes from Earth-1, Earth-2, Earth-S, and other realities, including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, and many others, join forces known as the Justice League to stop this threat.
“Crisis on Infinite Earths” became a defining moment in DC Comics history, bringing together many iconic characters and dramatically revitalizing DC Universe stories. The various sacrifices and changes that took place in this crossover still impact DC stories today.
With the announcement of the film adaptation of “Crisis on Infinite Earths,” fans can look forward to reliving the epic moments and exciting battles from this legendary story. Especially with the release date already set, fans don’t have to wait too long to enjoy this movie.
