DC has a bit of a rocky history when it comes to their live action films (here's hoping Man of Steel changes that), but they absolutely have a thoroughly impressive track record when it comes to their animated films. The features tend to revolve around Batman or Superman, but now Flash is getting his moment in the spotlight. Based on Geoff Johns' big event, Flash creates a disastrous future as he uses time travel to fix his past. Feast your eyes on the first trailer below.

Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox is scheduled to come out July 30. What do you think of the trailer, Viners? Also, don't forget to refresh your memory on the story arc by reading our Flashpoint page!

why does every other hero besides batman get the crappy anime movie treatment?? it is not fair.

Wasn't flashpoint the excuse to reset to everything to new 52? I wonder if we might get some new 52 animated features after this :3

@thetimestreamer: Funny you say that. Actually Batman has been the ONLY hero to recieve the "anime treatment" His first DC Animated movie Batman Gotham Knights was ACTUAL anime. This is just animation that seems slightly inspired by anime but it certainly isnt really anime.

Finally a movie about Flash!!! The trailer was awesome and the animation looks cool!!

@noj: it is close enough. and about that movie i mustve blocked it out because of how bad it was.

Just like with Under the red hood, they took inspiration of a mediocre comic, and made a good movie out of it.

Cause batman got the crappiest anime treatment, the jumbled mess that was gotham knight.

Looks frickin' sweet! Definitely picking this up.

meh, there's still a part of me that wishes they did flashpoint later. I mean it only happened 2 years ago and it feels even more recent than that. I just feel that there's other DC events I'd like to see adapted before they did this one. Like I wish they'd go back and do the Judas Contract movie they cancelled.

Man this art style looks really good actually. I can dig it.

#18 Posted by Mezmero (895 posts) - - Show Bio

Excited to see this. Some of the Flashpoint comics and tie-ins felt convoluted so I'm definitely down to see an abridged version of those events set in the DCAU. I'm sure the purists will find some reason to hate on it but I've learned over the years that DC animated stuff is almost always good to great. That Reverse Flash looks kind of beefy.

At least it's not NU52.

That was a cool trailer. Looks like Reverse Flash has been hitting the gym.

I think that's the plan. The New 52 has had some pretty good arcs that can easily be made into an animated series. I personally would like to see Death of the Family, Throne of Atlantis, or Traps and Trapezes (I know this one is a long shot, but my Nightwing fanboyism couldn't help it) made into an animated movie.

#23 Edited by Captain13 (3240 posts) - - Show Bio

Looks good. My only complaint is that Flash doesn't look fast AT ALL--even when in costume. Anyways, the only DCUOM I buy are the Justice League ones, and I'm going to get this one too.

#24 Posted by Mbecks14 (2068 posts) - - Show Bio

That was...underwhelming. It does make me really really need a Flash animated series though.

Uhhh....

Wonder Woman and Green Lantern did not look anime...

But yes, this does.

The Flash and Substance episode of Justice League was just that, but I'm not sure how many interesting fights Flash could get into before it gets boring...

#28 Posted by Captain13 (3240 posts) - - Show Bio

Why is Captain Atom in this? And Flash talking to Iris about WW3? They are changing up a lot about this...

#29 Posted by ThatOneKidWhoLikesComics (58 posts) - - Show Bio

This is a great movie - I'm glad I read the comic first. I wish the animation was better, Wonder Woman looks cross-eyed. It's about time they made this movie. I'm glad Flash gets his own movie. With the Reverse-Flash in the same flick!

Exactly what's mediocre about the series? and what makes the movie that you haven't seen yet so good?

this is a long shot, but if they made nightwing 1-7 a movie, then also had a night of owls short. that would be awesome. H'el on Earth would actually be kinda cool if they changed some stuff. Also a Teen Titans origin movie with Tim Drake, Wonder Girl, Superboy, Static, and Blue Beetle. Superman and the Men of Steel would be cool as well. the 2 best idea:

Earth 2 origin, Jay Garrick, Alan Scott, Hawkgirl, Al Pratt, Wesley Dodds.

@sesquipedalophobe:

Well, if not mediocre, then...let me see...frustrating, perhaps? Cool stuff in it, but over all, not fantastic, and the ending led to a a creation of an unnecessary universe.

I dunno. Maybe it will be just okay. It would still mean that it`s pretty good.

im deff down for some Flash based movies!

one day i hope to be that crazy guy on the street holding a sign that says 'the END is NIGH'!

#38 Posted by AWeekInGeekdom (225 posts) - - Show Bio

The animation is a bit wonky but it works perfectly for the story, I'm not sure why Atom and Iris are there but I'm sure it'll make sense "movie-wise". I hope at the end we get to see Pandora or the New 52 Justice League. >.>b

With Flashpoint being the ending of New Earth and the creation of the Prime Earth, it makes me wonder if the DC animated movies to come will be about the New 52. I think it's too early for New 52 movies anyway, but it just makes me wonder.

The bold part reminds me of Justice League...

Superboy=Superman

Robin=Batman

Wonder Girl=Wonder Woman

Static=Flash

Blue Beetle=Green Lantern

I would love to see a Teen Titans Origin with that roster lol

You could say that about any character. A Flash cartoon is desperately needed.

As someone that does not read comic books because of how convoluted and tied together with other comic series they can be, I was hoping that DC would do a feature movie summarizing the creation of the new universe. I hope following this movie DC does an origin movie for the new Justice League (because I don't think I want a live-action version).
