Justice League: Season 2 coming out on Blu-ray!
In case you missed this show way back in the early 2000’s and skipped over the DVD releases of the first two seasons of Justice League, now is your chance to watch it in all Blu-ray glory. It’ll be releasing on July 26, for $39.99
Justice League Season 2 was produced by Bruce Timm and James Tucker. The core voice cast featured George Newbern (Superman), Kevin Conroy (Batman), Susan Eisenberg (Wonder Woman), Michael Rosenbaum (Flash), Phil LaMarr (Green Lantern) Carl Lumbly (Martian Manhunter) and Maria Canals Barrera (Hawkgirl). Yes, they left Aquaman out of the series, though he was brought onto the team in the third season when the show changed to Justice League Unlimited.
If that wasn’t enough to get you interested, the guests that were cast through the season have a ton of awesome actors, most notably: Mark Hamill (Star Wars) as Joker, Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. (The F.B.I.) as Alfred, Robert Englund (A Nightmare on Elm Street) as Felix Faust, Powers Boothe (Deadwood, 24) as Gorilla Grodd, Ron Perlman (Hellboy, Sons of Anarchy) as both Clayface and Orion, Brad Garrett (Everybody Loves Raymond) as Lobo, Dennis Haysbert (24, The Unit) as Kilowog, Tom Sizemore (Saving Private Ryan) as Metamorpho, Eric Roberts (Runaway Train) as Mongul and Robert Picardo (Stargate) as Amazo.
If you’re like me though, you pay just as much attention to what the bonus features are, and this is what you’ll get:
- “The Justice Lords and Beyond” – An in-depth exploration of the alternate reality concept, the use of this physical theory in the DC Comics Universe and the alternate Earth created in the fan-favorite Justice League episode “A Better World.”
- Featurette: “Justice League: Declassified” – Actor Phil LaMarr (the voice of John Stewart/Green Lantern) takes you behind the scenes with the show’s creative team.
- Easter Egg: “Not Too Savage” – A never-before-seen deleted scene with an introduction by producer Bruce Timm.
- Commentary on Three Key Episodes: “Twilight, Part II,” “A Better World, Part II” and “Starcrossed, Part III” — Producers Bruce Timm and James Tucker, director Butch Lukic and the late writer/story editor Dwayne McDuffie provide fans with keen behind-the-scenes insight on the three important episodes.
This is a day one purchase for me, and really, helped solidify DC Animation as one of the top animated production houses out there. This is what DC does best (besides the comics of course) and you should be adding this to your collection to watch in all its awesome glory.
