"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
TV Guide has revealed the all-star voice cast for Warner Bros. Animation’s Justice League: Doom, a lineup that will no doubt please longtime fans of the DC Animated Universe.
The direct-to-DVD feature, set for release in early 2012, will be a Justice League Unlimited reunion of sorts, with Kevin Conroy, Michael Rosenbaum, Susan Eisenberg and Carl Lumbly reprising their roles as Batman, The Flash, Wonder Woman and Martian Manhunter, respectively. They’ll be joined by Tim Daly (Superman: The Animated Series) and Nathan Fillion (Green Lantern: Emerald Nights), as well as Bumper Robinson as Cyborg.
Announced in April at WonderCon, Justice League: Doom is based on the 2000 JLA story arc “Tower of Babel” by Mark Waid, Howard Porter, Drew Geraci and others. The plot centers on the perceived betrayal of the Justice League by Batman, whose secret files detailing the weaknesses of his colleagues fall into the hands of their enemies.
Executive produced by Bruce Timm and directed by Lauren Montgomery, Justice League: Doom is the last work of writer and producer Dwayne McDuffie, who passed away on Feb. 22.
A trailer will premiere Oct. 14 at New York Comic Con.
