Looks like the movie will be rated PG-13 for "sequences of sci-fi violence, some bloody images, language and partial nudity".

I'm not too surprised with the rating; it would have been more surprising if they went with another R rating.
So pretty par for the course for an Animated Feature movie by this point :p.

I wonder if the "partial nudity" is referring to a sex scene, a skimpy costume, or some surprise fanservice :rolleyes2:?
Hmm, I wonder if this movie is sticking with the classic line up or are they going to throw in a curve ball and sub in Flare and/or Caress.
Personally I think the surprise will be in which Legion members show up then any surprise in the Five roster, since the originals are pretty iconic :cool:.

I'm not sure how reliable the site is, but DVD Release Dates reports the movie comes out on August 6th, 2019.

They also list some of the cast and a brief log-line.
Actor(s): Jerry O'Connell, Jason O'Mara, Rosario Dawson
Overview: The Justice League battles the Fatal Five, (Tharok, Emerald Empress, Validus, Mano and the Persuader).

Yes, have some.

Amazon has the same date. I guess Hush and Fatal Five swapped release dates. Longer wait for this one. Bummer.

What? Superman lived? Spoilers! :p

Strange Tucker still has Hush instead if it listed in his twitter bio. Unless he's messing with us.

To be fair, they never mentioned which character Jerry O'Connell would be playing in the movie. :p

It would be funny if O'Connell, O'Mara, and Dawson are actually voicing members of the Fatal Five and this turns out to be a stand alone story, too.

I'd rather HUSH was the standalone project, but this is definitely a Timm/Suzuki project. I'm really curious about this, but it seems like a really weird one for Timm to develop.

In continuity with Tucker? Yeah, it's a no brainer and an obvious progression... but Timm? Strange.

It's not much to go by, but the first look image is cool. The Fatal Five look good enough to me and it's nice to have the roster confirmed already. I wonder which member of the Justice League will show up, and if any of the Legionnaires will be included as well.

If the movie really is getting delayed, it will feel kind of weird getting a sneak peek for it like 7 months before its release. But hopefully the featurette will reveal more stuff, not only in regards to the story and characters, but also behind the scenes stuff like the crew involved with the project.

It would be funny if O'Connell, O'Mara, and Dawson are actually voicing members of the Fatal Five and this turns out to be a stand alone story, too.
And they should bring the cast for the Fatal Five from Legion of Super Heroes to voice the Justice League while they're at it. Jennifer Hale, David Sobolov, etc.

But I presume we'll get more stunt casting and "big" names if they'll be main characters in the movie.

I'm especially surprised if Tucker isn't involved with this at all considering how much of a Legion fan he is.

Suzuki as a character designer I could maybe understand if Bourassa is really busy with Young Justice, but I'm not sure I see Timm headlining an in-continuity movie, which I would assume this is more readily then I would Hush.

Although I saw someone suggest that this movie might end up being a DCAU/JLU reunion movie...which I could actually buy.

If it is a proper JLU reunion movie, then I'm all for it.

Didn't Timm and Co. say a potential season 5 for JLU would have involved time travel? Perhaps they've condensed their ideas and made it into a DTV.

If it were a JLU reunion movie, THAT is the cast they would be advertising, not Jerry O'Connell et al. We will not be that lucky.

Well, it might be just a place-holder until the actual, full cast gets announced officially. I kind of doubt it personally, but you never know.

I actually like Yojimbo's idea of the animated movie VA's voicing the Fatal Five. So we could have the original animated League go up against the new animated League as the Fatal Five :p.

Honestly? I don't want any potential JLU reunion movie within five feet of these hard PG-13 / R movies. That ways lies Batman and Harley Quinn. I want whatever JL reunion we someday get to be consistent in tone with the show I loved in the first place. Part of why I loved JLU was because it was kid-friendly and fun. If they use the DC Universe movie label for a reunion, it probably won't be.

Put it under the DC Classics banner like Return Of The Caped Crusaders was. That had the potential to be an amazing banner, and they dropped it after two movies, and didn't even label the second one with it.

I don't want JLU back with blood and swearing. That's not the reason I loved the show. I loved the show because it DIDN'T have that.

I kinda like Phil Collins and am not afraid to say so!! (don't tell anyone)
Seriously, why can't Boomerang switch back to their original brand and air classic cartoons again?
Steven Universe. Where you are not allowed to reference marriage, childbirth and any sort of relation.
Why can't Cartoon Network air shows like Adventure Time, Regular Show, Uncle Grandpa and Clarence instead of Toddler Tightwads No!?

I like her response as to why she chooses Grover.
