After DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation announced the release of Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, it seemed inevitable that animated adaptations of New 52 stories were coming as well. Any speculation was ended earlier today, as it was revealed that Justice League War, the first DC Universe animated film of 2014, will be based on the Justice League story from Geoff Johns, and Jim Lee that introduced readers to the New 52 universe.
What is Trinity War? A long-teased, long-foreshadowed and long-hyped DC Comics crossover event story devised by the company's most popular and most influential (and most handsome, to hear some tell it) writer, Geoff Johns. The story prominently features Pandora, the mysterious, sometimes glowing lady with the hood who created The New 52iverse in the concluding chapter of Johns and Andy Kubert's 2011 event series Flashpoint, and subsequently appeared in all 52 first issues of DC's relaunched superhero line. As such, Trinity War may finally explain what exactly The New 52 is really all about (aside from a whimsical preoccupation with the number of weeks in a year and a questionable predilection for Nehru collars).
What does the "Trinity" in the title refer to? DC usually uses that word to refer to their "Big Three" heroes: Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. Will they be going to war with one another? Over what? (Maybe romance? You know, Superman and Wonder Woman are dating now, but in the old universe she and Batman dated for, like, an issue of JLA sooooo...). Could the title refer to the "Trinity of Sin," a trio of cosmic wrongdoers including Pandora, The Phantom Stranger and The Question? Is the titular trinity a reference to the three Justice Leagues (Of America,Dark and Original Recipe)? Are they gonna fight?
After more than a year-and-a-half of waiting, we finally found out when Trinity War kicked off in earnest with this week's Justice League #22 and we're going to tell you all about in the first installment of ComicsAlliance's Trinity War Correspondence!
If you're the kind of person who keeps up with comic book news online -- and the evidence would seem to suggest that you are -- then you may have already heard a few things about what happens in Justice League #22. It's the kickoff of the big Trinity War crossover, and Geoff Johns and Ivan Reis have already got people talking about it, some of whom are even going so far as to call it this month's Worst Comic Ever™. And it is, but probably not for the reason they're mad about.
Oh, neat: Creators of the very beloved 1980s superhero comedy title Justice League International, Keith Giffen, JM DeMatteis and Kevin Maguire will be the creators behind Justice League 3000, a new DC Comics series launching in the fall. As CBR's Kiel Phegley reports, the book will presumably detail the adventures of Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern and Batman one thousand years in the future.
Earlier this month, DC Comics announced their upcoming Trinity War storyline. Written by Geoff Johns and Jeff Lemire, the story will show the three Justice League teams facing off against each other, with Phantom Stranger, The Questio

Pictures Group, told Entertainment Week
