I never know what to expect these days when I sit down to watch the latest animated feature from Warner Home Video. They’ve had a few titles that blew me away (Wonder Woman) and a few that disappointed (Green Lantern: First Flight), so expectations were high as I settled in for the premiere of Justice League: Doom. A great writer, great cast, and one of my favorite comic stories being adapted made me hopeful this would be a good one.
It’s incredibly bittersweet to be writing this exactly one year after creator Dwayne McDuffie’s passing. It was just a year ago I had the chance to meet the writer for the first time in person and watch the premiere of his previous feature, All-Star Superman. It was a wonderful experience I’ll never forget. We knew he already had Justice League: Doom in the works and sitting in a theater to watch his last work was tough not only as a fan, but as a journalist. I was extremely concerned Justice League: Doom wouldn’t be good and that’s what I would have to write about. Thankfully, those fears never came to fruition. Justice League: Doom is one of the best Warner Home Video films I’ve ever seen.
