DC's Injustice Animated Movie Sets October 19 Release Date

DC FanDome will also feature a sneak peek just a few days before.


DC has finally revealed that its animated movie inspired by the popular video game Injustice: Gods Among Us will be released on October 19. According to a release, on that date the feature-length film will release on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-Ray, and digitally.

A few days before that, fans will be able to learn a bit more about this recently announced film at this year's upcoming DC FanDome. There will be a virtual event specifically tied to the movie on October 16, which as of this writing will at least include "a sneak peek" at the movie.

The movie's impressive ensemble cast includes Justin Hartley (This is Us, Smallville) and Anson Mount (Star Trek Discovery, Hell on Wheels) in the leading roles as Superman and Batman, respectively. Joining them are Janet Varney (The Legend of Korra, You’re The Worst) as Wonder Woman, Kevin Pollak (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) as Joker and Jonathan Kent, Faran Tahir (Iron Man, Star Trek) as Ra's al Ghul, and many others.

The movie's plot centers on an alternate world gone mad: "The Joker has duped Superman into killing Lois Lane, sending the Man of Steel on a deadly rampage. Unhinged, Superman decides to take control of the Earth for humanity's own good. Determined to stop him, Batman creates a team of like-minded, freedom-fighting heroes."

Matt Peters (Justice League Dark: Apokolips War) directs Injustice from a screenplay by Ernie Altbacker (Batman: Hush).
