Warner Brothers has shared with us a clip for next week’s new DC Animated adventure, JLA Adventures: Trapped in Time. The clip sets up the plot, but check out the rest of the details in the press release below. 

Press Release: Prepare for a battle of the ages when the Justice League takes on its archenemies, the Legion of Doom, as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, Warner Bros Animation, and DC Entertainment unleash JLA Adventures: Trapped in Time. Packed with non-stop action, JLA Adventures: Trapped in Time comes to DVD on May 20, 2014. The all-new original movie is a thrilling film for the whole family and features some of the Justice League’s most notable members. Fans won’t want to miss this action-packed hit! 
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!
“Fans of the Justice League have been very passionate about wanting to see more stories involving their favorite characters,” said Sam Register, President, Warner Bros.

It's not usually a good idea to house your hardened criminals in the same facility as a time machine.

this has been out for some time. i watched it a few months ago and... dudville. It was definitely meant for the younger generation and appears as elementary as that recent marvel sendup between iron man and hulk. definitely not what I've come to expect from DC animation. Pass.

I think it was a Target exclusive for a few months but now everyone is getting it.

The animation looks awful.

 C'mon Mania, I have to have a stroke reading that Channing Tatum has been cast as Gambit in X-Men Apocalyopse on Yahoo for Christ's sake?  Everybody taking the night off?  What do you think Maniacs?  Channing Tatum IS Gambit, accodring to (hack)Lauren Schuler Donner.  As for JLA, heavy on the super-friends flavor, but I'm old, so I'm cool with it.

this looks great i'm gonna get it

 The animation looks more old school, which while watching this... I kinda got into it. Bummed for the reviews above that said it wasn't good. I will still watch it.

 They had me at the title and lost me on the content.   This movie was mildly entertaining but

not what I expected after the last few Justice league animated movies.  While the Leaguers 

are sporting the new 52 look this seems to be happening in a super friends continuity, heck you

even see the old Wendy, Marvin and wonder dog make a cameo but the feeling of nostalgia

For the super friends era were not enough to cover for the animation and character design being

subpar.  With comic book based movies and tv shows being such big business right now 

I'm surprised WB would released this  thing. This movie should have stayed as a target exclusive

or better yet never should havebeen released at all.  Skip it.

I kind of like the animation.  It is like kinetoscope said and it sort of semi-recent-old-school, to coin a phrase.

Definitely looks like a little kiddie flick, but there's nothing wrong with that.  I may Redbox it if the notion strikes at some point.

I like the animation (clean, crisp, colorful).

Don't mind if it looks like it's marketed for kids.

To me adult comic book super hero entertainment is an oxymoron.

IMO all Comic Book Super Hero stuff is for kids (except for pornographic spoofs of the genre).

I have no problem watching childrens shows (love those penguins from the Madagascar movies).

I have a stressful job and lots of real adult problems to deal with on a daily basis...getting away and watching some mindless Super Hero movie for a couple of hours is a nice escape (the sillier the better).

I wish good prevailed over evil all the time, and there were real Super heroes to save us and fix things, but unfortunately that's a fairy tale (if only life were that simple).
