Newsarama has an exclusive clip from Justice League: War. This new clip features Shazam (voiced by Sean Astin). Jay Olivia (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns) spoke about the Shazam in the new animated feature.
"He is a good connection to Cyborg, who gets powers suddenly thrust on him [in the film]" said Oliva. "We used him pretty smartly as a way to relate to Cyborg, and being the one that can say, 'Hey, I'm a kid, but also a hero, and I've been doing this for a little while.' Shazam helps Cyborg through it."
Synopsis: When the powerful Darkseid and his massive, relentless forces invade Earth, a group of previously unaligned super heroes – misunderstood and, in some cases, hunted by the authorities – discover the only way to fend off the attack will be to work together as a cohesive unit. Batman,Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, Shazam and, in his origin story, Cyborg combine their respective talents in an all-out battle to save the planet. Based on the 2012 graphic novel, “Justice League: Origin,” by Geoff Johns & Jim Lee, Justice League: War provides a glance into the world before the Justice League was created, and offers the initial animated incarnation of DC Entertainment’s “The New 52.”
Justice League: War arrives via Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and Digital HD on February 4, 2014 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.
