Today along with the trailer was the release of some behind the scenes interviews with the creative team of the Justice League vs. The Fatal Five, you can check it out below!
Mary Ellen Thomas, the Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing said this about the film via IGN:
“Justice League vs. The Fatal Five is an important addition to the DC Universe Movies, spotlighting two unlikely young heroes with real-world issues facing off against a daunting quintet of futuristic villains. We’re also are proud to have Kevin Conroy, Susan Eisenberg and George Newbern reprising their seminal roles as DC’s Trinity in the Justice League & Justice League Unlimited animated series, and believe the fans will be equally pleased with their return to these characters.”
It has great list of voice actors that DC fans should be very familiar to. What may be foreign to most could be the team of The Fatal Five. Not to mention one of the most recent additions to the Green Lanterns Jessica Cruz. Overall it looks decent nothing to get too excited about.
