Batman, Cyborg, and Bad Guys in 3 New Images from 'Justice League: Doom'

The heaviest superheroic hitters of DC Comics won't be getting a The Avengers-style live action team up movie this year, but as a consolation prize, the popular DC Universe series of features is serving up an animated ensemble with Justice League: Doom.  Warner Home Video has released three new images from the film, which is inspired by Mark Waid's four issue comic arc JLA: Tower of Babel

The idea is that Batman's top secret contingency plans to cripple his fellow Justice League members exploited by bad guys, leaving Bats to clean up the mess that started with paranoia and general coolness.  In the comics, it was Ra's Al Ghul up against the League, but in the new movie, it's the the Legion of Doom.

The first still below features Legion villains Star Sapphire, Bane, Metallo, Ma'alefa'ak, and Cheetah, voiced respectively by Olivia d'Abo, Carlos Alazraqui, Paul Blackthorne, Carl Lumbly, and Claudia Black.  The second is all Cyborg, the Justice Leaguer voiced by Bumper Robinson.  The last is Batman, whose voice is provided by Kevin Conroy, the man who has been associated with the character ever since Batman: The Animated Series began in 1992.

Conroy isn't the only familiar voice actor reprising a role as a DC hero, as he's joined by Nathan Fillion as Green Lantern, Michael Rosenbaum as the Flash, Tim Daly as Superman, Susan Eisenberg as Wonder Woman, and Carl Lumbly (also voicing Ma'alefa'ak) as Martin Manhunter.  Produced by DC animation impresario Bruce Timm, the film is directed by Lauren Montgomery, who most recently directed Batman: Year One, based on the influential work of Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli.

Justice League: Doom will have its West Coast premiere on February 16th at the Paley Center for Media, after which it will debut on Blu-ray and DVD on February 28th.
