Justice League’s Dry Run: What ‘Batman vs. Superman’ Can Learn From the Animated ‘Justice League: War’

Justice League War
DC Entertainment

Warner Bros. has been trying to bring the Justice League to the silver screen for some time, if only to compete against Marvel's 'The Avengers' franchise. Following Christopher Nolan's now-famous trilogy of Batman films, Zack Snyder stepped up to the plate and served up a rebooted take on the 'Man of Steel'. After that film's success, Snyder agreed to direct the follow-up, a still untitled 'Batman vs. Superman' movie, which will feature three of the most famous DC heroes of all time -- Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) -- and will mark a major step into making 'Justice League' a reality.

But before that happens, Warner Bros. Animation recently released the latest the animated direct-to-DVD 'Justice League: War,' which unites the DC superhero team for an epic battle to save Earth from destruction, and may also serve as a dry run, for a live-action 'Justice League' movie.
