This movie was just horrible. Gorham, O'Mara, and Thomas were really the only good performaces in War. Monaghan was a poor fit, Kirk was too whiny, Moore sounded a bit old, Tudyk and Astin's problems were the writing, and Blum had his voice modified like crazy as Darkseid and poor director was Ocean Master.

I meant to say "poor director as Ocean Master."

This movie has me so torn. Part of me likes it and another part of me doesn't. :( It's like "Man of Steel" - on paper it seems good, but the way its ideas are executed left me wanting.

OK, you ****ed up War, but PLEASE don't **** up Throne of Atlantis. That's one of my favorite events in the new 52. Also, if they're bringing back Hal in the sequel, make sure the person who's writing it knows the difference between Hal Jordan and Guy Gardener, because Hal was an annoying douchebag in War
said at 2:27 PM on Tue Sep 23 2014
@Alpha Porunga To be fair, Guy was actually pretty likable in Brave and the Bold. Yeah, he was still a jerk, but he always came through in the end and got his just desserts for the trouble he caused.

@Ikrani You're right, Guy can be likable. I was just saying that Hal in this movie was like Guy Gardener without the likability that Guy had. Also the guy playing Hal sucked, he sounded like a whiney, emo teenager with a superiority complex.

It was a decent film. I wasn't terribly impressed with Andrea Romano's voice direction or its voice cast for that matter. Its one of Andrea's weaker efforts when it comes to voice direction.

Coukd've used more boss fights. The nameless parademons just look like Chitauri ripoffs.

Also, disappointed in the cast. Shemar Moore was the only good part. Very few of the others fit the character.

Primus, even the poster for this movie is incredibly overblown! Did Michael Bay make this movie? Because the tone and look of the film make it seem that way!

Though if Bay were involved, at least his characters would've been eye-rollingly zany, annoyingly in-your-face and ridiculously over-the-top caricatures that had personality. Irritating personality, but at least light-hearted and crazy to boot.

This is more Snyder's fare. The dark, moody, grimseriousbro "we all need to be super serial guise" and HEY STOP THAT! YOU CAN'T HAVE FUN!

Shazam is like the only Bay character in this, surrounded by Snyder's cast, ha ha.
said at 7:32 PM on Mon Sep 8 2014
@TylerMirage I really can't favor substance-less grit. However, I REALLY can't favor substanceless in-your-face annoyance: Too many movies I detest carry the factor of the latter (several bad comedies, for instance). Sorry, but it's a matter of preference.

And it's not to say Bay doesn't go down the former at times (I hate putting him down further, but I feel he commits both of the factors).

@DreamMaster08X Don't get me wrong - I'm not saying one method is better than another. Or that either method are inherently good or bad.

I'm just saying that if one is going to make a comparison, make sure that it's an *accurate* comparison. ;)
said at 2:30 PM on Tue Sep 23 2014
@TylerMirage I don't blame Man of Steel on Zack Snyder. The characters in that movie started out as having potential: Lois was a fun, snarky, sarcastic reporter, Perry White was Perry White, and even Papa Kent came off as a real father who was concerned for his son as a father, not a archetypal mentor figure. And then they all got hit with the Nolan Ray and turned into watered-down Dark Knight characters. Luckily General Zod is immune to its effects.

This movie was good. It definitely wasn't one of the best, and it had a good amount of problems too. DC lied to me too! This cast was also too big of a bet but they did a decent job at the end. Real sad about Darkseid though. With the sound edits to make him sound more demonic I can't really say whether Steve Blum was a good Darkseid..... Again, just decent. Plus it didn't help that he was so robotic too. -__- Waste of his amazing character. Gonna have to just wait for "Son of Batman" for now.

Good news everybody! Or... News everybody. As it turns out, Justice League: War is the first of many of its DC Animated films to share a continuity: http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/devlin712/news/?a=93923

So, yeah. If you like how charming and endearing these DC superheroes are, don't worry there will be many more movies with them appearing coming for years on end. :)

Looked into this and found some more info on it. First off it's not a sequel, just shares the same universe (like Ironman, Thor and Captain America). Also the next film isn't New 52 based, it's actually one back in 2006. Also it's rumored (so don't take this as fact) that some actors won't reprise their roles.
Sooooooooooooooo, there is some potential and hope...but it will still be by the same writers so take that as you will.

@Music Meister I interpret this movie getting a pre-release sequel greenlit as the execs at Warner Bros thinking their obvious interference will pay off, because nearly every horrible moment, especially the pop culture references, screams "Executive notes" as much as all the bad moments in Glen Murakami's Beware the Batman.

I thought this was the worst DC animated movie I've ever seen.
I don't know about the New 52 in the comics but this movie makes me understand the hatred for it.
Most of the Justice League members lacked any charm or likable quality (though Flash and Batman were alright but the first was pretty easy to forget he was evne in the film). SUpesman was a dick, Hal was just a whiny cry baby and Wonder Woman was just a rip off of Thor, even Cyborg would get a little too angsty and somber. Even Billy was a douche!
The pacing was awful, scenes would fly by without having anything settle even some scenes were unneeded and just seemed like filler.
The worse thing was Darkseid, one of the most evil and powerful villains in DC, didn't feel important. He got like 4 llines and they were typical "Me evil guy, me do evil cause I evil" dialog. Even when he's fighting the League, he doesn't come off as important. So once the Justice League does defeat him, it's just unsatisfying.
The cast was rather meh, the seemed less impressive than many other films but the supporting characters were pretty well done all things considered.
The action scenes were rather cool, they were fast pace and graphic but not too much. Green Lantern's projections were spectucular, really creative and just looked great.
In the end, an awful movie that I would not suggest in anyway. Go watch Justice League: Trapped in Time, you won't regret it. Trust me.

Having watched the movie Steve Blum sounds much better as Darkseid than he did in the trailer.

I wonder if the trailer's editor accidentally used a take that had Blum's regular voice or if TPTB decided to layer Blum's voice in post to sound much deeper as a last minute decision...
Foxwolf (Admin)
said at 9:02 AM on Thu Jan 23 2014
@Jackson_H you mean coz all the effects now mask Blum's voice almost completely?

Actually, I read somewhere that Andrea Romano said they decided to change the voice later on to sound "less human" because "Darkseid is anything but". Quote's probably a little off but you get the gist.

It's like they heard all the complaints online about "WAH BLUM IS TOO RECOGNIZABLE AS DARKSEID IT TAKES ME OUT OF THE MOVIE AND DOESN'T FIT" and decided to digitally alter it to the point of unrecognizability.

...that's my conspiracy theory, anyway.

They really need to go back to having consistent voices for these characters. They really do.
said at 7:22 PM on Mon Oct 14 2013
@PurpleWarrior13 On the contrary, I find DC's willingness to try different voices for their flagship characters quite refreshing, especially in this "golden age" of Adrian Pasdar and Drake Bell.
said at 7:37 PM on Mon Oct 14 2013
@CatsTuxedo It's one thing to try new voices. It's another to have totally different voices for EVERYTHING. There definitely needs to be SOME sense of consistency. Literally EVERY new DC animated project has new voices. They usually aren't that different-sounding either.
said at 7:55 PM on Mon Oct 14 2013
@PurpleWarrior13 I can see them re-using them a few times, but it doesn't need to be for EVERY project ever. That shows lack of creativity and open-mindedness, like what Marvel is doing and forcing their "favorite" voice actors on every damn project.
said at 8:11 PM on Mon Oct 14 2013
@PurpleWarrior13 I don't see much reason for every DC project to have the same VAs if they don't all take place within the same continuity like the Timmverse stuff did, where it actually made sense to re-use voice talent.

Though I will agree with you on the voices not sounding much different. While the sound DC goes for is generally indistinct, the fact that they're willing to work with different actors for different incarnations of their characters still puts them one step above what Marvel's doing right now.
said at 8:20 PM on Mon Oct 14 2013
@D.A.V.E. Yes, but the franchise needs consistency so that the characters are believable as the same characters. Otherwise, it's a cluttered mess. They don't need to have the same voices for EVERYTHING, but it makes no sense for these characters to have so many casting changes to the point where they have dozens and dozens of voices. It it was one or two odd projects where the voice was different, that's one thing, but find a voice and stick with it for most media. If Marvel's casting choices were good, then you might not mind the approach.
said at 8:26 PM on Mon Oct 14 2013
@CatsTuxedo Yet some of those voices (Kevin Conroy, Susan Eisenberg) have been used in other media recently, and with great results. Those actors are experienced as the characters, and it shows. When someone new is cast, they have a harder time sounding believable. These are the same characters regardless. If distinctive-sounding voice actors were cast, their approach would be more understandable. But since they all sound practically identical (in voice, not performance), there's very little point in not sticking with a specific set of voices for these characters.
said at 11:02 PM on Mon Oct 14 2013
@PurpleWarrior13 Were Justice League: Doom, Injustice: Gods Among Us, and all the Superman/Batman movies not good enough for you?
Besides, the people they got to voice them are really good, like Alan Tudyk, Sean Astin, and Steve Blu-- Blu--, sorry, my keyboard just jizzed itself from that last one.
said at 11:33 PM on Mon Oct 14 2013
@PurpleWarrior13 I'd still mind. Marvel's made a couple of decent choices. That doesn't mean I want those voices spammed in EVERY project they have.
said at 8:42 AM on Tue Oct 15 2013
@D.A.V.E. If it's the same character, there's no reason for their voice to change. ;) I can name lots of franchises that have different media and universes that keep the same voices (or at least try to).
said at 8:43 AM on Tue Oct 15 2013
@TheAtticus I am aware of those films, and am glad the original voice actors were saught, as well as using Nathan Filion on a semi-regular basis for Hal Jordan, however I don't think they should save consistency for special occasions. Regardless if it's the different universe, it's the same character, and there's no reason for them to sound any different.

They don't even have to use those voice actors. As long as they stick with a regular set of voices at least MOST of the time, I'd be happy.
said at 11:21 AM on Tue Oct 15 2013
@PurpleWarrior13 I'd just like to throw in my two cents here; the casting director for most of these projects you're talking about is Andrea Romano and she asks every time she does a Justice League thing if she can bring back the original actors. (Just like the fans, she considers Kevin Conroy THE voice of Batman and I'm sure she feels the same way about most of the cast.) Some times the higher ups say yes, but it seems it's mainly been a no.

Now, I like Kevin Conroy as much as the next Batman fan, but the switching around of cast members has opened me up to what an actor can bring to a character. For example, I see Bruce Greenwood as the human Batman that makes mistakes and tries to be a father figure to his protégés. I see Peter Weller as the bitter man tired of the same fight and how he seems to be the only one that can win any of the battles. I see Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne. I see Rino Romano as a young Batman just starting out in his crime fighting career. And Kevin Conroy, I see him as Batman, the superhero that can defeat armies and is tough enough to fight alongside practical gods. They've all brought out how Batman was meant for that story, and if one of them had switched places, I'm not sure how it would have turned out.
said at 12:55 PM on Tue Oct 15 2013
@Fairfieldfencer Like I said, it doesn't necessarily have to be Conroy. As long as there is a voice actor they go to when almost anything Batman animated appears, it's cool. Also, it doesn't have to be said VA ALL the time. There's nothing wrong with trying another voice actor for certain projects, but when it's EVERY project, it just starts to get cluttered, complicated, and messy. It's also more difficult for a character to establish an identity, especially the lesser-known ones with varying voices and voice actors.
said at 7:42 PM on Tue Oct 15 2013
@Fairfieldfencer From what I've heard, Andrea makes her casting decisions based on reality shows and sitcoms she's seen, as well as who's a big hit in the media. Of course, she does try her best to maintain consistency among the voice casts, but considering how different one comic-book adaptation can become from another, I can understand why she'd "experiment" with more new VAs.
said at 3:22 AM on Wed Oct 16 2013
@pokemastanumba1 Yeah, she does that. She's seen them in action and is reasonably confident they'll do the job, but for each project like this, she'll ask if she can bring the original JL cast back first. When the higher-ups say no, she looks to a long list of actors she's wanted to work with for a while and sees if any of them are right for the parts. John Noble as Brainiac was a few years in the making, she'd been waiting for the right character for him for so long. She isn't the only one that has input, though. For TDKR, the production group came up with the idea of casting an 80s action star as Batman since it was set in the 80s and thought seeing them older now would be fitting of how Batman has now gone from young action hero to what he is now. One person suggested Peter Weller and they really liked the idea.
said at 9:29 PM on Wed Oct 16 2013
@pokemastanumba1 Well that explains a bit. Frankly, casting cartoon voices based on reality shows and sitcoms doesn't seem all that smart on account of those kinds of stars not exactly being known for distinctive voices. Oh well. I'm just glad that some kind of experimenting is going on.
said at 10:14 AM on Thu Oct 17 2013
Since this movie is an adaptation of a comic book story where they're all younger, it at least makes sense that Andrea would want to cast differently than normal. I have to agree that there should be more consistency, and I don't always approve of each casting decision she makes. But regardless, she's very professional, does her best to work with the some of the same VAs she's used before, and tells them exactly what she's looking for in order to ensure a quality project.
