A 2023 two-part American direct-to-video anime-influenced computer-animated superhero crossover fantasy film called Justice League x RWBY: Super Heroes & Huntsmen is partially inspired by the brief crossover comic book series RWBY x Justice League and DC/RWBY created by Marguerite Bennett. The film, a collaboration between Rooster Teeth, DC Entertainment, and Warner Bros. Animation, follows a number of Justice League members who find themselves inexplicably transformed into teens and sent to Remnant where they join forces with Team RWBY to confront a powerful Grimm.
The movie’s release date was set for about 2023 when it was revealed at Comic Con 2022. The trailer, which introduced the title, actors, and release date as well as the fact that it will be a two-part film similar to Batman: The Long Halloween, was published around February 2023. Release Day for Part One was April 25, 2023.

Justice League X Rwby Part 2 Plot
On Remnant, near Beacon Academy, where Ruby Rose and Yang Xiao Long are engaged in combat with a group of Grimm, Clark Kent awakens. Superman has developed a semblance on Remnant that can only be used in sunlight, which has made him realise that he is considerably weaker than he usually is and that some of his powers aren’t available to him. The two sisters note that the Grimm has strange abilities including the ability to absorb dust and fire lasers. While Weiss Schnee meets Bruce Wayne in Atlas, who has also developed a resemblance and is a bat faunus, Blake Belladonna meets Diana Prince in Menagerie.
Ruby, Yang, and Clark meet Blake and Diana inside Beacon Academy and subsequently come across Jaune Arc, Nora Valkyrie, and Lie Ren from Team JNPR, Mari McCabe, Victor Stone, Barry Allen, and Jessica Cruz from the Justice League.
The Justice League, now all teens, pieces together what they recall and concludes that they were up against a machine. They also realise that, while in Remnant, the semblance powers they all now possess render them all far weaker than they would usually be. Barry’s slower speed and lower stamina, Diana’s powers coming from her weapons rather than from within, Victor’s technology being much less advanced than usual because it is from Remnant’s era, Mari and Jessica not even possessing their respective totem necklaces and Green Lantern rings, which give them their powers, are all examples. Teams RWBY and JNPR infer that incidents like the collapse of Beacon appear to have not occurred, which leads them to wonder if this is the actual Remnant.
Jaune stays with Jessica to assist her in retrieving her ring while the others search for the source of their present position. Blake, Yang, and Diana go out to find Bruce and Weiss, who finally come to the conclusion that this is a Simulation of Remnant. A Wyvern from the third team engages the Grimm in combat, and when one of them is killed, a leviathan merely materialises next to it. After being unexpectedly imprisoned in a white space with a Seer Grimm who, in contrast to many other things, was actually genuine, Jessica and Jaune are then deceived into falling victim to another trap by a fake Pyrrha Nikos.
Ruby, Clark, Nora, Ren, Mari, Victor, and Barry are joined by Blake, Yang, and Diana, as well as Bruce and Weiss. Bruce reveals that Barry is possessed by Kilg%re, who reveals that he transformed the Justice League into teenagers before trapping them and Teams RWBY and JNPR in this Simulation with the help of someone from Remnant. Bruce also learns from a conscious Barry that Kilg%re’s accomplices have trapped him as well. Jaune’s encouragement helped,
Mari’s necklace and Jessica’s ring are returned to them by Barry after Jessica frees the two of them from the trap and they work together to exorcise Kilgore from Barry. Kilg%re then takes control of the Wyvern before being eventually vanquished. Teams RWBY and JNPR awaken in Atlas from what was intended to be a training Simulation, saying goodbye to the Justice League and Remnant heroes as they depart and head back to their own planets.
