There have been a lot of different iterations and interpretations of the Justice League over the last 57 years, spanning across different mediums, but for a lot of fans nowadays the most iconic version belongs to the 2000s animated series. Of course, that could change when the live-action Justice League movie premieres in theaters this November, but for now the cartoons have Affleck, Gadot, and co. beat.
And while the cast and membership expanded when the show became Justice League Unlimited, the core members of Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, Green Lantern, Hawkgirl, the Flash, and Martian Manhunter still resonate to this day.
Members of the original cast reunited for a panel at Denver Comic Con this weekend where they did a reading from a script, reprising their iconic characters from the show. Take a look in the video above!
Kevin Conroy (Batman), George Newbern (Superman), Michael Rosenbaum (The Flash), Susan Eisenberg (Wonder Woman), Maria Canals-Barrera (Hawkgirl), and Phil LaMarr (Green Lantern) took the stage in a panel moderated by voice director Andrea Romano. Carl Lumbly (Martian Manhunter) wasn’t able to make it, though he was replaced for reading by voice actor Brian Cummings.
Walking Dead star and notable voice actor Khary Payton also joined the show to play Hro Talak, the Thanagarian antagonist of the series of episodes.
They read from the scripts for “Starcrossed,” the 3-part series finale from Season 2 that segued to the Justice League Unlimited series.
It’s pretty awesome to see the Justice League reunited once again, especially given that we’re unlikely to get a proper followup to the two series in the future. But we can still cherish the episodes we did get as well as special moments like this.
In Justice League, fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman's (Henry Cavill) selfless act, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes -- Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash – it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder, from a screenplay by Chris Terrio, based on a story by Snyder and Terrio, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, Ciarán Hinds, Amy Adams, Willem Dafoe, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, and J. K. Simmons.
Justice League opens in theaters no November 17, 2017.
