Well this is kinda neat. If you really enjoyed the Justice League Unlimited animated series, which has a pretty dedicated fan following (with good reason), then you should be pretty happy to hear that the entire season is coming to blu-ray for the first time in one collection. Better yet, it’s landing tomorrow, November 10th.
Warner Archive Collection continues its commitment to fulfilling the wishes of animation fans everywhere with the first-ever Blu-ray™ release of Justice League Unlimited: The Complete Series. The enthralling anthology will be distributed in full 16×9 widescreen presentation starting Tuesday, November 10, 2015 via WBshop.com and popular online retailers.
As the follow-up to the popular Justice League animated series, Justice League Unlimited ran from 2004-2006 and featured a huge canon of characters from the DC Comics library. After fighting off an alien invasion in the previous two-season Justice League series, our heroes find their ranks diminished and – with new dangers arising at an ever-increasing pace – the remaining crime fighters realize that protecting the entire world is going to take more technology and more manpower. A lot more. The original seven Justice Leaguers – Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, J’onn J’onzz, Green Lantern and Hawkgirl – are now joined by an unlimited selection of allies including Green Arrow, Supergirl and Black Canary. But some think all this power is too much power and a conspiracy against them grows. After years of foiled plots and repeated beatings, the galaxy’s worse villains finally have a plan: strength in numbers! Led by Lex Luthor, the Legion of Doom prepares to dominate the universe. First order of business: destroy the Justice League!
The core cast spotlighted Kevin Conroy (Batman: The Animated Series) as Batman, George Newbern (Scandal) as Superman, Susan Eisenberg (Justice League) as Wonder Woman, Michael Rosenbaum (Impastor, Smallville) as Flash, Carl Lumbly (Alias) as J’onn J’onzz, Phil LaMarr (Futurama, Pulp Fiction) as Green Lantern and Maria Canals-Barrera (Wizards of Waverly Place, Cristela) as Hawkgirl.
