Enjoy a Preview of ‘The New Frontier’ DVD
If you enjoyed Darwyn Cooke’s classic retelling of the Silver Age days of the Justice League of America — the Eisner Award-winning The New Frontier, chances are you probably already know about the straight-to-DVD release slated for next year.
Thanks once again to the heads-up from the amazing and spoiler-free Batman-on-Film about the viral video of Justice League: The New Frontier that’s snaking its way around the Internet.
One regret: Although producer/director Bruce Timm from the wonderful Batman: The Animated Series is working on New Frontier, I’ve noticed many of the voice actors featured in previous WB animated series — most prominently Kevin Conroy, the signature voice of Batman — were bumped this time.
On the subject of animation, Warner Bros. is taking another page from their Matrix Trilogy “cookbook” to prime the pump for next year’s Batman sequel: An Animatrix-style straight-to-DVD movie that bridges the gap between Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, according to IESB.net.
