Justice League Dark started out as a DC comic book, taking the universe's magical and supernatural A-listers and putting them in their own group book. For a brief while Guillermo del Toro was championing his idea of a live-action movie, but that appears to be on hold in favour of Wonder Woman, Batman, Aquaman and Justice League flicks in the next few years.
With the release of DC's latest animated film, Batman: The Killing Joke, we now get a 8-minute preview of their next animated project: Justice League Dark. The team-up of DC's darksiders includes Zatanna, John Constantine, Etrigan the Demon, Swamp Thing, Black Orchid and Deadman, with cameos from Batman, Green Lantern and Superman as well.
The JLD producers have hired TV Constantine lead actor Matt Ryan to voice his animated counterpart, which is pretty much making him the go-to guy for any John Constantine work to be done. Also providing voice work are Jason O’Mara as Batman, Nicholas Turturro as Deadman, Ray Chase as Etrigan and Camilla Ludington as Zatanna. Swamp Thing and Black Orchid voice talent have yet to be revealed.
DC might be testing the video waters to see how well the magical version of a supergroup fares before tossing bigger bucks behind del Toro's movie idea. The fates will augur this when Justice League Dark drops on home video sometime this fall (and if I were to place a bet, I'd wager closer to Halloween.)
