'JLA Adventures: Trapped in Time' Coming to DVD

Lex Luthor and the Legion of Doom have a plan to put an end to the Justice League before they can really form.

Did you know there's a new Justice League movie coming to DVD next week? JLA Adventures: Trapped in Time will be on sale on May 20th. It looks like this might be a movie more suitable for the entire family compared to the recent PG-13 movies that tend to throw in the occasional one or two bits of profanity in order to be a little edgier. Sounds like we have an interesting mix of characters that will be in it.

NOTE: This was previously available only at Target stores. On May 20, it will be available everywhere.

After crafting a monumentally over-the-top plan to take over the world by expanding the polar ice caps, mastermind Lex Luthor is missing and widely presumed dead. One thousand years later, Luthor is discovered and memorialized in the Legion of Super Heroes’ museum, where the teenage super hero, Karate Kid, accidentally releases him. The museum contains both the knowledge of Superman’s secret identity and a way to time travel, in the form of the mysterious Time Trapper. Once Lex Luthor is free, he quickly sets out on a mission to permanently erase Superman from the time stream.

For the Justice League – Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Cyborg and Aquaman – along with Robin and teen super heroes Karate Kid and Dawnstar, the stakes have never been higher. Facing the deadliest rescue mission to date, the future lies in the hands of the Justice League as it struggles to confront its most critical challenge: the threat of having never existed!

Check out this clip:

JLA Adventures: Trapped in Time is directed by Giancarlo Volpe (Green Lantern: the Animated Series) from a script by Michael Ryan (Scooby-Doo! Wrestlemania Mystery). The film features the voices of Diedrich Bader (Batman), Peter Jessop (Superman), Jason Spisak (Flash), Grey DeLisle Griffin (Wonder Woman), Dante Basco (Karate Kid), Laura Bailey (Dawnstar), Corey Burton (Time Trapper), Kevin Michael Richardson (Black Manta, Solomon Grundy), Fred Tatasciore (Lex Luthor), Travis Willingham (Gorilla Grodd), Avery Kidd Waddell (Cyborg), Liam O’Brien (Aquaman), Thomas Gibis (Toyman), Erica Luttrell (Cheetah), Michael Donovan (Bizarro) and Jack DeSena (Robin).

JLA Adventures: Trapped in Time Enhanced Content includes 2 bonus cartoons from the DC Comics Vault:

The All - New Super Friends Hour: The Mysterious Time Creatures

Super Friends: Elevator to Nowhere

"...a script by Michael Ryan (Scooby-Doo! Wrestlemania Mystery)..."

Also, this looks like it was animated with Adobe Flash.... Get it?

But seriously, the animation looks pretty bad.

Wb Animation took a quality nose-dive with this one.

Also, hasn't this been out for a while? Could've sworn I saw it at, like, Target or something.

It is.

Way more worth your money than Justice League War too.

@thesexyloser: Why did you like JLW? It was pretty bad.

I forgot to watch this, I found it online a long while ago. They must barely advertise it.

This scene alone was a buy for me. Took the bad taste that the Bruce Timm Crossover left.

Is that Jason Spisak as the flash?

@thesexyloser: This scene is better, more popular and more iconic:

This is from an episode of Challenge Of The Superfriends. The episode title is Secret Origins Of The Superfriends.

Karate Kid. Again.
Is he supehero or walking great disaster?)))

I might have missed something, but which of the previous DCAU films had profanity?

Posted by fables87

With that animation, I really hope it's not PG13. Looks too kid friendly for me.

Hmm.

I don't think 'damn' has been considered profanity since the 50's, and 'ass' can't be considered profane, it's in the names of movies that have posters and commercials everywhere for example.

I guess 'shit' is still considered profane though. Funny that.

Is Marvel animation in charge of DC movies now ? This is whack.

It's iconic cus everyone wants to see the village idiot beat the king. And it could only be done in the most idiotic way :P

@thesexyloser: Well...now that Batfleck is basically DKR Batman (as I predicted and see the batsuit reveal), you never know what might happen....

Edited by AmazingWebHead

QUIT WHINING! THIS IS 10 TIMES BETTER THAN THAT "JUSTICE LEAGUE: WAR" CRAP!

(Since when does Lex know Superman's secret identity?)

More like a Bad@$$ Knight beating a govt. controlled King :P

@thesexyloser: Bruce Timm's The Batman/Superman movie is a millions times better than JLW to this day.

+1 I second that

Posted by Farkam

I didn't like this.

Posted by danhimself

this was actually one of the better recent DC movies...if you're judging it from the clips then you're really missing out on a really fun movie

Say what will, but I would rather watch this movie than Justice League:WAR. It felt like Justice League with a hint of SuperFriends.

Posted by NukeA6

I saw this. It may have been childish and have the most ugly Cheetah I have ever seen but it's better than the disasters named Justice League War and Son of Batman. Not to mention, it's really nice to see some Legionaires.

Posted by StMichalofWilson

I like this movie. Wouldn't mind if they make a series out of this. Totally agree it's much better than JL: War

Edited by fil123

this was actually decent, until some shit that didnt make sense happened...

they erased superman from history, but since theres no superman all of a sudden bruce, diana, victor, aquaman, and every other hero didnt exist? isnt bruce older than superman lol? i would assume kal landing on earth had nothing to do with aquaman, bruces parents being killed, diana coming from paradise island etc

also feel that booster gold wouldve been perfect instead of these two random kids
