Batman and Cyborg prep for war in 1st clip from DC's Flashpoint

Justice League The Flashpoint Paradox CYBORG Official Clip

The folks at DC are just now starting to get their act together on the big screen with Man of Steel, but the animation division has been cranking out great flicks for a while — and here’s a first look at the latest.

Dubbed Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, based on Geoff Johns' acclaimed graphic novel Flashpoint, the animated feature follows an alternate reality where the world is being torn apart by a war between Wonder Woman and Aquaman. 

The first footage serves as a nice setup for the premise, with Batman and Cyborg talking about the effect the war has had on the planet.

Check out the full synopsis below:

When time travel allows a past wrong to be righted for Flash and his family, the event’s temporal ripples prove disastrous, creating a fractured, alternate reality where the Justice League never formed, and even Superman is nowhere to be found. Amidst a new world being ravaged by a fierce war between Wonder Woman’s Amazons and Aquaman’s Atlanteans, Flash must team with a grittier, more violent Batman and government agent Cyborg to restore the continuity of Flash’s original timeline.

The flick will premiere at San Diego Comic-Con, then hit shelves on July 30. Do you plan on checking it out?
