The first trailer for Justice League Dark has been officially released online thanks to IGN. Justice League Dark is the next instalment in the DCAU. The film sees the world under attack from supernatural forces, prompting Batman to look for help from John Constantine. As a result, Constantine forms another team of supernatural heroes to save the world. The roster includes Swamp Thing, Deadman, Zatanna and Etrigan the Demon. You can check out the trailer below.
The Justice League Dark trailer also reveals that the movie will be rated R for “some disturbing violence,” similar to the DCAU’s last instalment, Batman: The Killing Joke. Hopefully this film will not have the R-rating just for the sake of having it, which was one criticism with The Killing Joke.
IGN was also able announce some new cast members for the film. Jeremy Davies will play Ritchie; Enrico Colantoni will be Felix Faust; Alfred Molina voices Destiny; and Roger R. Cross will perform as both Swamp Thing and John Stewart/Green Lantern. They will join Jason O’Mara as Batman, Matt Ryan as Constantine, Camilla Luddington as Zatanna, Nicholas Turturro as Deadman, Ray Chase as Etrigan, Jerry O’Connell as Superman and Rosario Dawson as Wonder Woman.
Justice League Dark is directed by Jay Oliva. The script was written by Ernie Altbacker, who co-wrote the story with J.M. DeMatteis, while Sam Register will executive produce. The film will be available via digital download, DVD and Blu-Ray in early 2017.
