According to ComicBook.com, Warner Bros. Animation has revealed the voice cast for “Justice League Dark: Apokolips War,” the next animated film to be released after “Superman: Red Son”.

“Justice League Dark: Apokolips War,” will pit the assembled might of Justice League Dark and the Justice League against Darkseid, the tyrant god of Apokolips. The animated movie is a sequel to “Justice League: War,” the first movie set in the current continuity of DC Universe animated films. While that story was based on Geoff Johns and Jim Lee’s comic book story from the “Justice League” comic book, “Justice League Dark: Apokolips War” is not a comic book adaptation.

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, DC and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, “Justice League Dark: Apokolips War” arrives later this spring, and features the largest super hero cast in the history of DC Universe movies with dozens of actors/characters spotlighted in a grand ensemble of talent reprising their roles from this six-year story continuum.

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 (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 Meg) as the voices of Lois Lane and Lex Luthor, respectively.

Tony Todd (Candyman, The Flash) is voice of the film’s the key villain, Darkseid. The cast also boasts appearances by Camilla Luddington (Grey’s Anatomy) as Zatanna, Ray Chase (Justice League Dark, Final Fantasy XV video game) as Jason Blood/Etrigan, Roger R. Cross (24, The Strain, Arrow) as John Stewart & Swamp Thing, Liam McIntyre (Spartacus: War of the Damned, The Flash) as Captain Boomerang, Hynden Walch (Teen Titans Go! vs. Teen Titans) as Harley Quinn, Stuart Allan (Batman vs. Robin, Batman: Bad Blood) as Robin/Damian, Sachie Alessio (Batman: Hush) as Lady Shiva, and John DiMaggio (Futurama, Batman: Under the Red Hood) as King Shark.

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment, Justice League Dark: Apokolips War will be distributed mid-2020 by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Digital, and on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD.

This may be good. To me it will depend on what the definition of “dark” is going to produce. Is this going to be more off the wall interpretations of our DC characters? Or will dark describe the general story?
