Justice League: Doom Gets All-Star Cast

The final script from Dwayne McDuffie is the adaptation of Mark Waid’s "JLA: Tower of Babel," being released as "Justice League: Doom" in 2012. Instead of stunt casting and making us put up with a Baldwin as Batman, Kevin Conroy, Tim Daly, Michael Rosenbaum, Carl Lumbly and Susan Eisenberg will all reprise their original roles from the Justice League cartoon. Bumper Robinson joins the cast as Cyborg, and Nathan Fillion is apparently going to be Green Lantern even though we all prefer him as Steve Trevor.

Tower of Babel actually involved Ra's al Ghul finding out how to incapacitate all of the Justice League in an attempt to mess with Batman's head. Since Doom is credited as being "based on" Babel, but the following press release talks about everyone BUT Ra's, I'm wondering if that's still the main villain:

The Justice League faces two sets of villainous teams in the film – The Royal Flush Gang and a sextet of notable evildoers. The latter group includes three voice acting alumni of the Justice League animated series: Phil Morris as Vandal Savage, Olivia d’Abo as Star Sapphire, and Alexis Denisof as Mirror Master. Also opposing our heroes are Carlos Alazraqui as Bane, Paul Blackthorne as Metallo, and Claudia Black as Cheetah.

None of that sounds like "Ra's al Ghul steals the bodies of Martha and Thomas Wayne because he's a weirdo." Or "Ra's goes to a lot of work to make everyone illiterate."

I do love, however, that Wonder Woman appears to be completely unimpressed with magic jewelry, even though she has special bracelets and tiara that help her fight crime:

The latest of the DC Universe's animated original movies is directed by Lauren Montgomery (who will be in the upcoming Womanthology book, hurray!) and produced by Bruce Timm. Warner Home Video will premiere the Justice League: Doom trailer during its presentation at New York Comic Con on Friday, October 14 from 3:00-4:00 p.m. in the IGN Theater.
