A pair of Grey's Anatomy doctors will spend their summer hiatus saving lives in a different way. Justin Chambers and Kevin McKidd don cape and cowl to star in the upcoming animated superhero adventure Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox.
The film — based on Flashpoint, a 2011 comic book miniseries by writer Geoff Johns and artist Andy Kubert — will be released on July 30 in Blu-ray, DVD, On Demand and digital download formats from Warner Bros. Animation, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.
Chambers plays the Flash, the super-speedster hero whose life is thrown into chaos when the reality around him suddenly changes into a world where the Justice League was never formed, Superman is unknown and Aquaman and Wonder Woman are waging a vicious war against each other that is tearing apart Europe. McKidd stars as Batman — but in this alternate reality it's not who you expect wearing the mask.
The all-star cast also includes Michael B. Jordan — star of this year's Sundance darling Fruitvale — as Cyborg, the half-man, half-robot government agent/hero; Southland's C. Thomas Howell as Professor Zoom, aka the Reverse Flash, the villain at the center of the turmoil; Cary Elwes as Aquaman, Vanessa Marshall as Wonder Woman; Sam Daly as Superman; Ron Perlman as Slade; and Danny Huston as General Lane. Warner Bros. Animation vets Kevin Conroy, Dana Delany and Nathan Fillion reprise their roles as Batman, Lois Lane and Green Lantern, respectively.
