Heads up, DC Universe fans! On July 28, 2015, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and DC Entertainment will issue the all-new feature-length Justice League: Gods & Monsters (rated PG-13) on Blu-ray Combo Pack (with a Deluxe Edition available too), DVD, and Digital HD. The Deluxe Edition is a limited edition gift set that includes an exclusive Wonder Woman figurine.
From the official press materials, here’s the synopsis: ”This is not your parents’ Justice League! These heroes are not the renowned saviors of the world – they’re more likely Earth’s despotic rulers. Witness the divergent reality where the Justice League protects the planet – but answers to no one but themselves. Employing methods of intimidation and fear, this Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman deal brute force in the name of justice.
In this alternate universe, Superman was not raised by the Kents in Smallville, the Caped Crusader is not Bruce Wayne, and Wonder Woman is not an Amazon warrior of Themyscira. When a group of famed scientists experience untimely “accidents,” a government task force follows the trail of clues to the Justice League, but is there a more powerful player operating from the shadows? It’s a high stakes game of intrigue, mystery and action that asks the question: How do you serve justice to those above the law?
