I assume this will be the pay-off movie to the little end credit tease from Batman: The Long Halloween - Part Two. Superman (or anyone really) is trapped on War World and the League must be formed to save him from Mongul?

I know this reminds us all of the less than successful episode from Timm's Justice League, but at least Mongul is something a little different for these animated films.

It is always nice to speculate who will be in the League, more in this universe that we have already seen that the team already had its history and members.
I bet we will see Green Arrow Vixen Shayera Green Lantern Martian Manhunter again and we will surely have some more surprises. I would love to see to Atom Firestorm and Red Tornado!
I also thought if this movie will not be like Justice League vs Fatal Five and revisit in DCAU!

I definitely think this is going to be the first real movie to show off the Tomorrow-verse Justice League all together (maybe so we get to see them as a team and as a group before Crisis) :).

The League is already fully-formed by the time of Beware My Power so this is probably continuing off of that, now with Batman and probably Earth-1 Wonder Woman (and possibly Aquaman) in tow...

I hope we get some good Superman content since Mongul is one of his foes :cool:.

Yeah, this seems like it will be the first big Justice League movie in the new "Tomorrow-Verse" continuity. Interesting they're using Mongul, it might seem an odd choice but it's kind of a refreshing change of pace from Darkseid (who will probably still show up eventually).

And this like the first real Justice League animated film we've gotten since JLvsFF back in 2019 o_O.

Jeff Wamester is the director, the screenwriters are Jeremy Adams, Ernie Altbacker, and Josie Campbell, and the producers are Jim Krieg and Kimberly S. Moreau.

Comic-Con Q&A with Jeremy Adams.

Comic-Con Q&A with Butch Lukic, Ernie Altbacker, Jim Krieg, Jeff Wamester, and Jeremy Adams. Lukic liked the Skartaris area the most. Design was the biggest challenge because they had to create four worlds instead of one like usual. Altbacker saw an animatic a year and a half ago. Krieg wanted to do something different involving a hologram world and amnesia. The worlds are meant to keep them from remembering themselves because are so far from who they are. Wamester was most excited with the Wonder Woman section because he grew up watching Westerns. The Superman section was the hardest, playing around with the angles to build up the story and frenzy. The three writers conceptually came up with the movie then took a section each.

Comic-Con round table with Jim Krieg. Krieg and Butch Lukic wanted to use the DC Showcase shorts to tour the DC Universe but then no more were greenlit. Around Halloween 2021, Krieg wanted to watch Hammer horror movies but they weren't free on streaming so he watched Amicus movies and was inspired by their portmanteau movies like "Asylum" to make a framing movie with short stories within it. The three worlds are a combination of illusions, robotics, and cloning meant to cause fear and hate to fuel Warworld.

7/25: Comic-Con interview with Butch Lukic, Ernie Altbacker, Jim Krieg, Jeff Wamester, and Jeremy Adams.

7:49 Jim wanted the Silver (Shining) Knight.

7:53-54 I didn't get the Viking Prince.

8:54-9:11 There were a lot of Western characters we talked about. Tomahawk. Pow-Wow Smith. El Diablo. They were go-to's in DC in the 70s but we couldn't pack them all in.

Comic-Con Q&A with Butch Lukic. The working title was World's Finest, it was pitched five years ago, and it featured Superman and Batman.

1:10-1:33 Well, originally we pitched it that we were going to have them, Superman and Batman, and it was going to be called World's Finest and it was going to be based more on their adventures in those comics they did together. But as we went along with our earlier storyline, we realized 'Ok we need this, this, and this. And we do need Warworld in our story.'

2:19-2:32 Uh, no, that was just our working title. Because we pitched this five years earlier so once we got to here, we realized it's going to be Warworld so Warner changed the title to Warworld.

Question: What is it about animation that always keeps you coming back for more even sometimes bad movies/shows?
What was your first instance of being hyped for something.


For me it was the Phineas and Ferb episode "Act your Age"
If I could actually love, I would love everyone of you. Thank you.
This has been a wild weekend.
nickatnite.com and nick.com schedules for The Neighborhood somehow have episode synopsis but not all: Example: early Sun Jul 21 5:34am - Welcome to the Stakeout, Synopsis: "When there’s a break-in at Calvin’s business, he teams up with Dave for a stakeout to catch the culprit in the act."
