Justice League: Gods and Monsters gets an official release date of July 28, 2015, plus boxset cover, Blu-ray/DVD details and is available for preorder.
Justice League: Gods & Monsters takes place in a divergent reality where the Justice League protects the planet – but answers to no one but themselves. Employing methods of intimidation and fear, this Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman deal brute force in the name of justice. From the creative genius of executive producer Bruce Timm and co-producer Alan Burnett comes an original story where the world’s greatest triumvirate of super heroes has distinctly different origins. Superman was not raised by the Kents in Smallville, the Caped Crusader is not Bruce Wayne, and Wonder Woman is not an Amazon warrior of Themyscira. They are as likely the world’s saviors as Earth’s despotic rulers. When a group of famed scientists experience untimely “accidents,” a government task force follows the trail of clues to the Justice League – but is there a more powerful player operating from the shadows? It’s a high stakes game of intrigue, mystery and action that asks the question: How do you serve justice to those above the law?
Justice League: Gods & Monsters’ voice cast includes Michael C. Hall (Dexter) as Batman, Benjamin Bratt (Law & Order, 24) as Superman, Tamara Taylor (Bones) as Wonder Woman, Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds) as Lois Lane, Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter films, Dig) as Lex Luthor and C. Thomas Howell (E.T., Southland) as Dr. Will Magnus.
Justice League: Gods & Monsters is directed by Sam Liu (Batman: Year One) from Timm’s original story.

It’s interesting to note through Warner Bros. YouTube channel Machima, there will be a collection of shorts connected to this film so it’s weird to see those won’t be on here, unless they just didn’t add it to the list, anyone who got Batman vs Robin I’m sure noticed the Super-Rabbit short not listed.
