Over the weekend, the cast of the animated Justice League series reunited for a live-read at Denver Comic Con.
The cast including Kevin Conroy as Batman, George Newbern as Superman, Michael Rosenbaum as The Flash, Susan Eisenberg as Wonder Woman, Maria Canals-Barrera as Hawkgirl and Phil LaMarr as Green Lantern were in attendance to participate in a panel moderated by casting director Andrea Romano. Voice actors Brian Cummings and Khary Payton (Young Justice, Teen Titans Go!) stood in for Martian Manhunter and the villainous Hro Talak respectively as the cast re-created the three-part episode “Starcrossed” that ultimately set up the Justice League Unlimited follow-up series.
You can watch the full live read of “Starcrossed” below.
Fans of the Brave and the Bold will have their chance to see the league unite for the first time ever on the silver screen when Justice League opens later this year.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Amber Heard as Mera, J.K. Simmons as Jim Gordon, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Julian Lewis Jones, and Willem Dafoe are also set to appear. Here’s the official synopsis:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League hits theaters November 17, 2017.
