Updated: with sneak peek video above.

Update #2: A trailer has hit the net.


We get a first look at the latest WB animated movie from Bruce Timm, Justice League: Gods and Monsters.

Nerds On The Rocks posted the following screenshots and info as I'm guessing a preview is a part of the Batman Vs. Robin animated movie.

Justice League: Gods and Monsters is not based on the comic of a similar name, but features an original story by Bruce Timm. Per the descriptions below, we see just how original as it's more of an Elseworlds tale than anything resembling the regular DCU.

The plot for the movie is described as:

The movie centers around the murder of prominent DC Universe scientists like Ray Palmer, Victor Fries, Silas Stone and others that the Justice League is being framed for. They attempt to investigate these murders while dealing with mounting pressures from outside sources.

A Justice League: Gods and Monsters animated series is also being developed and is officially described as:

Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles — Animated short form series from Bruce Timm and Alan Burnett (producers of the legendary Batman: The Animated Series) will debut on Machinima in 2015. Based on Justice League: Gods & Monsters, an original animated film that will be released by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment later in 2015. 

The New DC Trinity - Wonder Woman, Superman and Batman.
Batman is not Bruce Wayne but Kirk Langstrom (Man-Bat in DCU). While trying to find a cure for his cancer, Langstrom injects himself with bat venom becoming a "pseudo-vampire," and he then feeds on criminals to cure his bloodlust. 
Lois Lane and Superman (which is the son of Zod)
Wonder Woman - said to be of the "New Gods,"; marries Orion, but something goes wrong causing her to come to Earth
Darkseid - said not to have a big role
Lex Luthor - said to be more like a "Stephen Hawking" who is a seeker of knowledge, but there is more than meets the eye to this Lex
