DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation will release the movie on July 30, 2013 on Blu-ray combo pack (including UltraViolet), DVD and Digital Download. Similar to previous releases, the movie will have a PG-13 rating.

The official description is as follows:

When time travel allows a past wrong to be righted for Flash and his family, the event’s temporal ripples prove disastrous, creating a fractured, alternate reality where the Justice League never formed, and even Superman is nowhere to be found. Amidst a new world being ravaged by a fierce war between Wonder Woman’s Amazons and Aquaman’s Atlanteans, Flash must team with a grittier, more violent Batman and government agent Cyborg to restore the continuity of Flash’s original timeline.
