First trailer for ‘Justice League Dark: Apokolips War’

Oh hell yeah! Coming on the heels of the well-received Warner Bros. Home Entertainment animated film Superman: Red Son, comes the highly anticipated Justice League Dark: Apokolips War, which is an adaptation of the DC Comic.

The film is basically the animated version of Marvel’s Civil War and Infinity War. Featuring a slew of DC heroes from both the Justice League and Justice League Dark, the focus is on their fight with Darkseid and his minions. as they face-off against Darkseid and his minions.

The trailer, exclusively on IGN, mostly spotlights the likes of Superman and Batman, with only brief glimpses of Green Lantern (John Stewart), Lex Luthor, Darkseid, Cyborg, John Constantine, Swamp Thing and some of the other Justice League Dark members. One would assume the magic-wielding heroes will be the main focus of the actual movie, but we’ll have to wait and see.

Matt Ryan (DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Constantine), Jerry O’Connell (The Death of Superman, Satanic Panic, Stand by Me) and Taissa Farmiga (The Nun, The Mule, American Horror Story) anchor the cast as Constantine, Superman and Raven, respectively – the triumvirate determined to assemble the forces necessary to lead humanity’s final attack.

Alongside that trio are the long-running core of Justice League voices — Jason O’Mara (The Man in the High Castle, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) as Batman, Rosario Dawson (Briarpatch, Josie and the Pussycats, Sin City) as Wonder Woman, Shemar Moore (S.W.A.T., Criminal Minds) as Cyborg and Christopher Gorham (The Stream, Covert Affairs, Insatiable, Ugly Betty) as The Flash – as well as JL-adjacents Rebecca Romijn (X-Men, The Librarians) and Rainn Wilson (The Office, The Stream, The Meg) as the voices of Lois Lane and Lex Luthor, respectively.

Tony Todd (Candyman, Final Destination) will voice Darkseid. If you can’t have Michael Ironside, not a bad choice. Not a bad choice at all.
