WB, Machinima Greenlight "Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles" Season Two

"Justice League: Gods And Monsters Chronicles," a series of animated shorts that feature much darker versions of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, will air a second season in 2016, according to Bleeding Cool.

A collaboration between Warner Bros., DC Comics and Machinima, the series is executive produced by Bruce Timm and co-produced by Alan Burnett, both producers on the revered "Batman: The Animated Series." The first season was announced last September, promising "a newly conceived reality in the DC Universe where Justice League members Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman are much darker versions of the Super Heroes that people think they know." More specifically, Superman is the son of General Zod, Wonder Woman is from the warring nation of Ares and Batman is Kirk Langstrom, who inadvertently turned himself into a sort of vampire while attempting to cure his own cancer.

The animated series, "Justice League: Gods And Monsters Chronicles," will precede the straight-to-home video, full-length feature "Justice League: Gods And Monsters." Both the series and the film have already inspired an action figure line and a prequel comic series.

"Justice League: Gods And Monsters" will be released on July 28.
