We're getting ever closer to the premiere of the new Justice League: Gods and Monsters animated movie at this year's San Diego Comic-Con --- and its release on video shortly thereafter --- and I'm not sure that I've ever seen Warner Bros. go as hard at promoting one of their DTV releases as they are with this one. And it makes sense that they would, too; as the product of legendary animator Bruce Timm, who co-wrote the story with Alan Burnett and provided new designs for all the characters, Gods and Monsters is definitely something for fans to be interested in.

To that end, we've got a brand new clip from the movie, and while it's a little light on action, it does show us Superman getting mad and talking back to a television news broadcast, which means Gods and Monsters is a look at a terrifying world where Superman is a lot like my mom.

I kid, clip; but there is a pretty interesting element here that expands on something that we already knew: This Justice League isn't our Justice League. It's been established very early on that this world's Superman is the son of General Zod rather than Jor-El, and Wonder Woman certainly doesn't look like Diana of Themyscira, but here, we've found out exactly who the story's vampiric Batman is: Kirk Langstrom, better known to fans of the mainline DC Universe as Man-Bat. It seems that in this reality, his experiments didn't just turn him into a man-sized bat in torn-up jeans, but they actually caused him to go Full Dracula and start exsanguinating terrorists.

Justice League: Gods and Monsters will be released digitally on July 14 and on video on July 28. If, however, you're going to Comic-Con, you can catch it early at the premiere on July 10 at 7:00 PM in Ballroom 20.
