Over the past year or so, Warner Brother’s Animation and DC Comics have released a series of direct to DVD movies starring some of their mainstay superheros. Starting with Superman: Doomsday then with Justice League – The New Frontier) onto Batman Gotham Knight and, most recently to an adventure featuring the Amazon Princess herself, Wonder Woman . In the coming months, we will have a Green Lantern movie. Then a Batman/Superman team up entitled Public Enemies which is taken from the first six issues of the team up comic series.
United States President Lex Luthor uses the oncoming trajectory of a kryptonite asteroid to frame Superman and declare a $1 billion bounty on the heads of the Man of Steel and his “partner in crime” Batman. Super heroes and super villains alike launch a relentless pursuit of Superman and Batman, who must unite – and recruit super help – to stave off the action-packed onslaught, stop the asteroid, and uncover Luthor’s devious plot to take command of far more than North America.
Hopefully, this will eventually lead to the development of a live-action Justice League feature that has been in creative limbo for several years. However, I forsee rival company Marvel unveiling their Avengers movie before this happens.
