Crisis Special Features and Box Art - Plus the Title of the Next DC Animated Movie!

More information for the upcoming DVD movie, Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths, has been revealed! The 2-disc DVD and Blu-ray, which will hit the stores on February 23, will include the following special features:

  • DC Showcase: The Spectre
  • A First Look at Batman: Under the Red Hood
  • Green Lantern First Look
  • Superman/Batman: Public Enemies First Look
  • Wonder Woman: The Amazon Princess
  • The New World Featurette (Blu-ray contains a special Extended Cut)
  • Bruce Timm's Top Picks: JLU episodes A Better World, Parts 1 and 2, Twilight, Parts 1 and 2
  • DC TV pilot episodes (live-action) Wonder Woman, Aquaman
  • Trailers
  • Digital Copy Online

  • There are a few things worthy of greater attention:

    DC Showcase: The Spectre

    The Spectre gets his moment in the spotlight in the first of what will hopefully be a long line of animated shorts!

    A First Look at Batman: Under the Red Hood

    The next DC animated movie will star the Dark Knight and feature the Red Hood who, if you don't know already, was the Joker before his chemical bath. This could be a Joker origin story, an adaptation of the popular Killing Joke story with a more PG title, or it could be an adaptation of Under the Hood, a recent Batman story in which Jason Todd, a former Robin who got beaten to death by the Joker, comes back from the grave under the guise of the Red Hood. I'm guessing the former.

    DC TV pilot episodes (live-action) Wonder Woman, Aquaman

    Just to clarify, the Wonder Woman pilot is from the classic 1976 series starring Linda Carter, and the Aquaman pilot is the canceled Smallville spin-off, Mercy Reef. Why they are on this DVD/Blu-ray is beyond me.
