That left me wondering who those villains at the end that looked all alike were. And was that a Boom Tube snatching up the JL?

EDIT: Oh! If that was a Boom Tube, what if those villains were the Animates used by Doctor Bedlam?!

Three things about the press release:

1.) They spoiled a character reveal. I'm not even sure that character was apart of the original graphic novel.

2.) The ''special features'' for these past two films have been absolutely dire. One featurette? I guess they're getting ready for the deluxe edition.

3.) I think this is the first press release that doesn't list Justice League Action under the WB Animation section. Kind of like the final nail in a way... :(


Still really looking forward to this one, though.

Oh hey, they finally confirm Eradiactor's VA! And it's Bibbo's voice too :p.

Tony Todd as Darkseid pretty much clinches things to some degree :ack:.

Nice to see Todd reprising Darkseid though :evil:.
And Perry's, I believe.

The writing was on the wall in The Death of Superman and the tie-in comic. Plus, it's essentially expected at this point for them to not fully adapt the source material and Hal Jordan hasn't really been explored heavily in this continuity, so seemingly substituting Mongul from the original story for this makes sense, imo.

I have not read the original graphic novel, nor am I following the tie-in comic, so I can't say i saw any major signs pointing to this particular character.

In saying that, it makes perfect sense and I am both excited for the character to rear his head again in this continuity and for Todd to get another crack at the whip.

Also, poor Steve Blum. He just can't seem to hold down a job in these movies.

If you only saw the movie, Apokolips' involvement can be sussed out from Doomsday's asteroid emerging from a Boom Tube and Intergang using Apokoliptian tech for example.

This seems odd to me: the folks at IMDb seem strangely reluctant to add the producer credit to Sam Liu on this movie. This is despite confirmation provided by press releases from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. Maybe they need secondary confirmation? Might anyone here with an IMDb Pro account be able to help out?

It's been about two years since I joined Toonzone/Animesuperhero. I've come a long way since my days on Fairly Odd Parents wiki.
FXX is now starting The Simpsons back at episode 1 for the first time since January, now we'll see if "Stark Raving Dad" will actually be skipped

*UPDATE: Yep, it's being skipped next Monday.
So... Universal Kids is really airing Totally Spies. This makes it the third network in the US to broadcast it. First was Fox/ABC Family, followed by Cartoon Network after ABC Family made it clear that they didn't want to air cartoons that weren't Jetix(or its prototype), and eventually family programming in general(outside of the holidays). I don't know how to feel.
One of the games on Camp Nick is kinda similar to Crystal Maze, which it will later then air on Nickelodeon in future
