While many caught DC Comics and Warner Bros. Animation's latest collaboration "Superman Unbound" at WonderCon 2013, fans are already set for the next big DC animated direct-to-DVD feature based on Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert's 2011 crossover event "Flashpoint." Newsarama has revealed the full title of the feature as "Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox" and a release date of July 30, 2013, posting the official synopsis of the upcoming animated feature.

When time travel allows a past wrong to be righted for The Flash and his family, the ripples of the event prove disastrous as a fractured, alternate reality now exists where a Justice League never formed, and even Superman is nowhere to be found. Teaming with a grittier, more violent Dark Knight and Cyborg, Flash races to restore the continuity of his original timeline while this new world is ravaged by a fierce war between Wonder Woman's Amazons and Aquaman?s Atlanteans. With breath taking action and an all-star voice cast, it's a bold, emotional vision that will forever change the landscape of the DC Universe.

Johns and Kubert's "Flashpoint" was DC's major summer event for 2011, and paved the way for the publisher's current continuity and largest publishing initiative ever, the New 52, which relaunched 52 titles as new #1 issues. While legendary Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy revealed his involvement in the project last year (and will be voicing Batman for the non-alternate universe version of the Dark Knight), Newsarama further noted cast additions of Dana Delany as Lois Lane, Ron Perlman as Deathstroke and Vanessa Marshall as Wonder Woman.

The announcement of the upcoming animated feature comes less than a week following Bruce Timm's departure as supervising producer for the DC Universe Animated direct-to-DVD films.

Well, cr*p. This is the last story I ever wanted to see adapted - the one which killed DC comics for me. One reboot too many for me . . .

Haha, I'm on the other side of the fence when it comes to DC rebooting their comics. I was out of the loop for too long with comic-books because of other things in life. I got to a point where I couldn't just randomly jump into my favourite books. But with the reboot I was able to get my DC comic-book fix again. Though I am reading up on the major arcs that still have impact on the current New 52 universe.

@Growled: Same here. I love the DC animation styles. Characters are looking awesome and the action scenes are always topnotch.

If you're talking about only an animated version of JL films then I'm going to disagree :p I do believe that DC is working towards a live action JL film.
