A shattered hero must overcome battle-inflicted blindness and seemingly insurmountable odds to save his village and, ultimately all of Earthrealm in Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind, an all-new, feature-length film produced by Warner Bros. Animation in coordination with NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. Games. The film arrives from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Digital on October 9, 2022 and on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack and Blu-ray on October 11, 2022.

Inspired by the worldwide video game sensation now celebrating its 30th anniversary, Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind finds vicious, power-mad Kano determined to take over Earthrealm, one soul at a time. Assisted by a trio of cold Black Dragon mercenaries, he embarks on a brutal assault from town to defenseless town. The choice is simple: Kneel or be annihilated. But when the cocky and talented but undisciplined Kenshi doesn’t take a knee, Kano and his clan destroy the young warrior, taking his eyesight and his confidence. Under the tutelage of reluctant, retired Kuai Liang, the only one powerful enough to challenge the malevolent Kano, Kenshi finds renewed hope and a clear path to redemption. But will it be enough to stop Kano from decimating all of Earthrealm?
Manny Jacinto (Top Gun: Maverick, The Good Place) and David Wenham (Elvis, 300, The Lord of the Rings franchise) lead a terrific voice cast as Kenshi Takahashi and Kano, respectively. Returning from previous installments of the film series are Patrick Seitz (Mortal Kombat X, Aggretsuko, Naruto: Shippuden) as Scorpion, Artt Butler (Her, Star Wars: The Clone Wars) as Shang Tsung, and Debra Wilson (World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, MADtv) as Graji. And new to the Mortal Kombat Legends films is Ron Yuan (Mortal Kombat 11, Mulan) as Kuai Liang, Imari Williams (Transformers: Rescue Bots) as Tremor, Yuri Lowenthal (He-Man and the Masters of the Universe) as Kobra, Courtenay Taylor (Regular Show, OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes) as Kira, Keith Silverstein (Overwatch, Genshin Impact) as Kabal, Sumalee Montano (The Lost Symbol, Transformers Prime) as Kindra, and Lei Yin (Saint’s Row) as Peter & Sento.
Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind is produced and directed by Rick Morales (Mortal Kombat Legends franchise, Injustice) from a script by Jeremy Adams (Supernatural, Justice Society: World War II), who also penned the screenplays for the series’ first two films. All three films are based on the video game created by Ed Boon and John Tobias. Jim Krieg (Batman: Gotham by Gaslight) is Producer. Sam Register and NetherRealm Studios’ Ed Boon are Executive Producers.

Warner Bros. Animation released images and details from the Green Lantern: Beware My Power movie premiere and discussion panel at the San Diego Comic-Con 2022 pop culture convention on July 22, 2022. The studio also confirmed the four initial animated movies coming from DC Comics and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment in 2023, previously reported here. More details and images can be found below.
It was Christmas in July as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment gave a gift, then tossed in a few surprises at 2022 Comic-Con International this past weekend.
The initial gift — the World Premiere of Green Lantern: Beware My Power — came on Friday night as the enthusiastic Ballroom 20 audience was treated to the first public screening of the latest entry in the 15-year history of the DC Universe Movies. The screening was followed by an exciting, informative and oftentimes funny panel discussion amongst actors Aldis Hodge (John Stewart/Green Lantern), Jimmi Simpson (Green Arrow), Jamie Gray Hyder (Hawkgirl) and Brian Bloom (Adam Strange) alongside the filmmaking quartet of executive producer Butch Lukic, director Jeff Wamester and co-screenwriters John Semper Jr. & Ernie Altbacker. Publicist Gary Miereanu served as moderator.
Among the many panel highlights was Aldis Hodge, the voice of John Stewart/Green Lantern in his first animated feature film starring role, surprising the crowd with an impromptu reciting of the Green Lantern Oath, delivered with an impressive intensity and joy. See the attached photo.
During the later part of the panel discussion, WBHE reminded the crowd of the final DC Animated Movie coming this Fall — Batman and Superman: Battle of the Super Sons (10/18/22) — and then rekindled its Comic-Con tradition of announcing its initial slate of DC Universe Movies and DC Animated Movies for the following year. See the attached image. With only names announced thus far, these film titles are coming in 2023:
• Legion of Super-Heroes • Batman: The Doom That Came To Gotham • Justice League x RWBY: Super Heroes and Huntsmen, Part One • Justice League: Warworld
The panelists in attendance include: Front Row (left to right) – Gary Miereanu (moderator), Brian Bloom, Jamie Gray Hyder, John Semper Jr. & Aldis Hodge Back Row (left to right) – Ernie Altbacker, Jimmi Simpson, Jeff Wamester, Butch Lukic (the three stills were photographed by Gary Miereanu)
Further details are expected in the coming months for these four upcoming DC Universe Movie and DC Animated Movie titles, including cast details, release dates, trailers and more. Additionally, DC Comics announced a new printing of the Batman: The Doom That Came To Gotham trade paperback softcover collection, released to tie into the upcoming DC Animated Movie adaptation of the acclaimed comic mini-series of the same name, will hit shelves April 4, 2023.

The World’s Finest has published its review of the DC Universe Movie title Green Lantern: Beware My Power, which is available July 26, 2022 to own on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray and Digital. In short, Green Lantern: Beware My Power ultimately stumbles as its increasingly complicated plot pulls focus away from John Stewart, but it remains a fairly entertaining journey nevertheless. To read the complete review, click on the image below.
In addition to a detailed review, the above image link also leads to additional content, including the film’s trailer, imagery and more. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment describes Green Lantern: Beware My Power as follows:
In Green Lantern: Beware My Power, recently discharged Marine sniper John Stewart is at a crossroads in his life, one which is only complicated by receiving an extraterrestrial ring which grants him the powers of the Green Lantern of Earth. Unfortunately, the ring doesn’t come with instructions – but it does come with baggage, like a horde of interplanetary killers bent on eliminating every Green Lantern in the universe. Now, with the aid of the light-hearted Green Arrow, Adam Strange and Hawkgirl, this reluctant soldier must journey into the heart of a galactic Rann/Thanagar war and somehow succeed where all other Green Lanterns have failed.
Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC, and released by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, Green Lantern: Beware My Power is available July 26, 2022 on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray and Digital HD. Stay tuned for further updates and coverage right here at The World’s Finest!
Announced during the Green Lantern: Beware My Power movie premiere and discussion panel at the San Diego Comic-Con 2022 pop culture convention on July 22, 2022, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment revealed four upcoming animated releases slated for 2023. The titles, featuring two DC Universe Movie releases and two DC Animated Movie releases, are a mix of original content and adapted material, and spotlight the Justice League and the Legion of Super Heroes, among others. More details are below.
The studio announced Batman: The Doom That Came To Gotham, a loose adaptation of the fan-favorite comic series by Mike Mignola, for the DC Animated Movie line. The acclaimed 2001 comic series offered a Lovecraftian twist on the classic Batman mythos, and was written by Mignola and Richard Pace, with art by Troy Nixey.
The other title set for the DC Animated Movie line is the previously announced RWBY/Justice League crossover animated feature, the full title revealed here to be Justice League x RWBY: Super Heroes and Huntsmen, Part One. More details on that feature are available here.
Lastly, the two DC Universe Movie titles scheduled for 2023 include Justice League: Warworld and Legion of Super Heroes. Both titles are a continuation of the “in-continuity” DC Universe Movie titles that started with Superman: Man of Tomorrow in 2020. While there are no details on Justice League: Warworld, Legion of Super Heroes will be the first time there will be an animated project focused fully on the Legion of Super-Heroes since the animated series ended in 2008. In the film, Supergirl finds she needs a few lessons as she acclimates to Earth…and Superman looks to the heroes of the Legion to get it done.
Further details are expected in the coming months for these four upcoming DC Universe Movie titles, including cast details, release dates, trailers and more.
