Owlman Returns in the Next DC Animated Movie (WHO WHO!?)

Lex Luthor is good? Batman is evil? and an owl!? It can only mean one thing, a crisis is coming. DC's next animated film (after this months Superman Batman: Public Enemies) titles Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths is being described as:

...a “good” Lex Luthor arrives from an alternate universe to recruit the Justice League to help save his Earth from the Crime Syndicate, a gang of villainous characters with virtually identical super powers to the Justice League. What ensues is the ultimate battle of good versus evil in a war that threatens both planets and, through a diabolical plan launched by Owlman, puts the balance of all existence in peril.

At first blush, this sounds a lot like the first season finale of Batman: The Brave and the Bold which involved Batman teaming up with a good Joker, and then taking on Owlman. But Owlman is just one member of the syndicate which also includes Ultraman, Superwoman, Johnny Quick, and Power Ring. From the cast list, it looks like at least Superwoman will have a decent role (voiced by Gina Torres of Firefly fame).

More news to come...
