CC17: New Gods


This winter, a major motion picture event is being unleashed on the world from DC and Warner Brothers Pictures.  An adventure spanning an entire galaxy, Jack Kirby’s unparalleled pantheon of characters know collectively as the New Gods will finally make their Silver Screen debut in a film of the same name.  Two worlds at war find themselves tied by bloodlines that make the conflict fiercer.  On one side of the conflict is New Genesis, a planet of peace and harmony led by the wise and benevolent Highfather.  On the other side is the planet Apokolips, led by the grim and ruthless dictator Darkseid, who seeks not only the annihilation of New Genesis, but the means to control life throughout the universe.  The battleground for this conflict: Earth.  A visual spectacle the likes of which has never been seen…a human drama that will resonate for all time.

To tie in with the release of the film, DC Direct has developed a line of action figures that sport movie-realistic detail and paint application.  Designed by Joshua Izzo and Bruce Ross, this line will be in the 7” scale, and will feature major characters from the forthcoming blockbuster film.  Never before have Jack Kirby’s characters been treated to such a detailed and loving action figure line.  The first wave will include six figures, and is slated for release in October.
