WB drops 4-pack of images for upcoming “Legion of Superheroes” animated flick

Centering on Supergirl, DC and Warner Bros have a brand new animated movie on the way, this one bringing in the iconic Legion of Superheroes.

She doesn’t really need a ring though

It’s been a while since we’ve featured a DC Comics animated movie on BG. It’s nice to see that the line is still rolling too, with all the tumult and rebooting happening with Warner Bros’ live action comic book universe.

Rolling it is too, into a next presentation that brings in the Legion of Superheroes. A team based in the far future of the DCU, the Legion has been a mainstay in every iteration of the publisher’s comic line.

For the film, the action looks like it’ll be centered on Supergirl, who’ll be meeting up with the Legion for a little training/grief-management.

Welcome to the 31st century and the Legion Academy, where a new generation hones their powers with hopes of joining the Legion of Super-Heroes. Devastated by tragedy, Supergirl struggles to adjust to her new life on Earth. Taking her cousin Superman’s advice, Supergirl leaves their space-time to attend the Academy. There, she quickly makes new friends, as well as a new enemy with old ties: Brainiac 5. But a nefarious plot lurks in the shadows – the mysterious group known as the Dark Circle seeks a powerful weapon held in the Academy’s vault. Find out if the budding heroes can rise to the challenge in this all-new DC Universe Movie!
