The cut scenes in the LEGO computer games have frankly been the spice in the soup. LEGO characters are caricatures by intention, and they start by being inherently funny looking. So what happens what classic, iconic characters in the cut scenes become so popular that they can stand on their own? You get The LEGO Movie, and short films on Disney XD, and direct to BluRay movies with the exhaustingly long title LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes – Justice League: Cosmic Clash.
It’s all played for larfs, though.
A blast from Brainiac’s ship sends members of the Justice League into distant times in Earth’s history. Batman, Flash and Cyborg must build and use the Cosmic Treadmill to race across time to retrieve their comrades – while members of the Legion of Super Heroes attempt to hold off Brainiac’s assault. Only time will tell in this battle for the fate of the Earth and the Justice League!
The cast of LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes – Justice League: Cosmic Clash features some of the top voiceover artists in the industry voicing the core Justice League heroes: Troy Baker (Batman), Nolan North (Superman), Grey Griffin (Wonder Woman), Josh Keaton (Green Lantern), Khary Payton (Cyborg) and James Arnold Taylor (The Flash). Phil LaMarr (Futurama, Static Shock, Pulp Fiction) joins the LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes realm as the voice of Brainiac. The Legion of Super-Heroes also assists the Justice League efforts, spotlighting the voices of Jessica DiCicco (Supergirl), Kari Walhgren (Saturn Girl), Yuri Lowenthal (Cosmic Boy) and Andy Milder (Lightning Lad). Also along for the fun is Phil Morris, reprising his Justice League role as Vandal Savage (he played the Martian Manhunter in Smallville, and Jason Spisak as Captain Fear (he played Wally West/Kid Flash in Young Justice).
LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes – Justice League: Cosmic Clash is directed by Rick Morales from a script by Jim Krieg. Sam Register, Jill Wilfert and Jason Cosler are executive producers. Benjamin Melniker & Michael Uslan are co-executive producers, and Brandon Vietti is supervising producer. There’s even a blooper reel. We understand there may be some farting involved.
