Batman can handle nearly anything – but as the Justice League Dark trailer shows, he needs a little help when it comes to the supernatural. The new animated film will be R-rated and is legitimately scary as Batman gather up the team of magical Zatanna, Dead Man, John Constantine, Swamp Thing and Etrigan to resolve a scary new threat worldwide.
The Justice League Dark trailer begins with fearsome enemies, and as usual, the Justice League meets to evaluate how to fight back and at the first sign that there is a “paranormal” Batman asked the group if they are talking about magic.
A movie featuring the supernatural superhero team Justice League Dark has been in development at DC for several years, with a variety of filmmakers attached to it.
The group joins forces after innocent civilians start committing disgusting crimes across the country, presumably due to demonic forces. There will also be a special edition of the film released on this date, that comes with an exclusive collectable John Constantine Figurine.
The cast includes Batman’s Jason O’Mara, Constantine’s Matt Ryan, Zatanna’s Camilla Luddington, Deadman’s Nicholas Turturro, Jason Blood/Etrigan’s Ray Chase, Superman’s Jerry O’Connell and Wonder Woman’s Rosario Dawson. The feature-length film, which has been rated R, will be available digitally on January 24, 2017, with the Blu-ray and DVD release following on February 7. Altbacker also wrote the teleplay. James Tucker (Batman Bad Blood, Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders) is Supervising Producer. The will be a deluxe giftset that comes with a Constantine action figure.
