    Harley? I wonder if that means Vampire Batman has his own Joker? Though considering this Batman, and the rest of the League, don't have no-kill-rules, I doubt he'd last very long as the Clown Prince of Crime :sweat:.

    An alien Green Lantern sounds really cool, and I wonder if Mary Marvel is as innocent as her comic counterpart in this crazy, messed up, realistic world of Gods and Monsters? Steel being in it is also cool, even if I suspect he and Superman probably aren't the friends in this universe that they are in most regular continuities :ack:.

    Though more characters makes me wonder if the Gods and Monster Elseworlds League actually has a larger roster than just the Trinity, we just probably won't get to see any of of the others in the movie proper?

    What we're seeing with the movie and series could just be the beginnings of the League and no expansion has taken place yet. Based on the trailer with the meeting of scientists and the email, a whole of lot of them have never suited up as their classic counterparts have whether it be superheroes or supervillains. Maybe season 2 is about a JLU: Gods and Monsters. ;)

    Knowing this universe, Flash will probably be a time-traveler with few moral scruples but a similar desire for control over the world named Eobard Thawne. Aquaman would probably be Ocean Master too :p.

    More interviews with Bruce Timm and new details. Like Mary Marvel is Pam Grier inspired and has a 70s outfit, the GL is fish-like, Jim Krieg is co-writer with him, their original idea for Wonder Woman, season two is a follow up to season one and the movie, currently working on season two scripts and in the season one promo there was "a woman being immolated alive by heat vision".

    Did I mention Jim Krieg?! :D

    Maybe they're seeing how well a digital show works for their profit margins. With this and the Vixen series, as well as CN messing around with the shows, it does seem like they're exploring the digital market.

    Machinima has announced a June 8th, 2015 premiere date for the first episode of the short-form Justice League: Gods and Monsters - Chronicles animated series. The announcement was coupled with a teaser image, included below, and the text "Can you guess which DC Comics character will be the first to show up?"

    [​IMG]
    A talkback for the entire series will go up on June 8th, 2015, with this thread staying open for news updates, etc.

    More details on Justice League: Gods and Monsters - Chronicles are expected to follow soon.

    Wow, that's next week - pretty last second. I wonder if we'll get a trailer for this.

    5/31: I think they could always post the trailer shown only during the Machinima Upfront.

    June 8? Got it. I'll take it.

    Machinima updated that teaser image with Batman.

    6/2: Some odds and ends, but noticed CBR's article confirmed Chronicles season one will be a prequel to the movie like the comics will be. And each episode is 7 minutes in length.

    Considering Bruce Timm's recent comments regarding Harley Quinn... that's certainly an interesting design choice he opted for.

    Otherwise, this looks fantastic. Shame it's only three short installments, but they'll be a nice appetizer for the movie next month.

    It looks like they basically went with Harley's first New 52 design, more or less,and I'm pretty sure that's Tara Strong back as Harley. From those glimpses, she definitely seems a lot more psychotic than normal Harley is, though I wonder if she's like this even without the influence of a Joker :ack:?

    I wonder if Superman avoided helping those innocent lives entirely because he knew stopping Braniac would save them as a result or if he just genuinely didn't care? Definitely very un-Supermanlike though, and considering what we've seen before of this guy I could see it beibng either explanation :sweat:.

    This Wonder Woman is definitely...aggressive. Though I bet Trevor appreciates it :p.

    Was that Sivana as the scientist in the white house?

    So:

    Benjamin Bratt - Superman

    Michael C. Hall - Batman

    Tamara Taylor - Wonder Woman

    I think the 3 episode lenght is great, because it will take its time to introduce each character into this new world, one episode at a time, so we don't waste time with it in the movie. With season 2 , the universe will expand into other things. Bring it on!

    Nice treat having Mr. Timm introduce the trailer.

    So the opposition appears to be Brainiac. Neat. The gunmen Wonder Woman and Steve fight look to have the color scheme of Kobra.

    So it seems like one episode is Superman vs. Brainiac, another is Wonder Woman and Steve vs. Kobra and their giant lady robot, and the third is Batman and Harley Quinn.

    Correct. He's one of the targeted scientists appearing in the movie, too.

    EDIT: James Tucker did storyboarding and Frederik Wiedmann is doing the music for them.

    Plus they have that subtle "K" design on their belt buckles.

    This trailer was pretty awesome. Looking forward to the shorts premiering next week. Should be fun. Wonder if they'll end with a cliffhanger, which will only be solved in the movie.

    What's with the stitchmarks on Harley's neck? Is she a Frankenstein monster in this reality?

    It looks like she did the same thing to that family...I'm not sure if those are self-inflicted or done to her, or if Harley's even human :ack:.

    I guess she could be a suicide survivor, but it looks more like someone sewed an albino head on a caucasian body. Harley's designs have been getting more and more weirder in recent years, but this one takes the cake so far.
