You can check out the film’s official synopsis below.

Until now, the Justice League has been a loose association of superpowered individuals. But when they are swept away to Warworld, a place of unending brutal gladiatorial combat, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and the others must somehow unite to form an unbeatable resistance able to lead an entire planet to freedom.

Butch Lukic of Batman: The Long Halloween is returning as an executive producer alongside Sam Register and Michael Uslan, a long time alum of the Batman franchise production team. Jeff Wamester (Legion of Super-Heroes) will direct. Producers will include  Jim Krieg (The Death and Return of Superman) and Kimberly S. Moreau (Batman: The Doom That Came To Gotham) while writers will include Jeremy Adams (Supernatural), Ernie Albacker (Justice League Dark: Apocalypse War) and Josie Campbell (She-Ra and the Princesses of Power). 

There’s no word yet as to when Justice League: Warworld will debut. As always, stay tuned for more updates.
