“Justice League Dark: Apokolips War” Animated Movie Trailer

Justice League Dark: Apokolips War

IGN.com has been given first look at the official trailer for the “Justice League Dark: Apokolips War” Animated Movie.

“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.

An army of Parademon/Doomsday hybrids. Interesting. I hope that Superman will be the main hero for this film. Other heroes look interesting as well, but I’m buying this film to see Superman. He’s my favorite superhero. Haven’t seen Shazam in a long while. I hope that they can explain his absence from the fight with Doomsday in this film. Why was Superman’s eyes green? And what’s with the beard? Looks very interesting. Were the other films rated R? I don’t remember. I think the Death of Superman and the Return of Superman were. Although I’m not sure.

Saying this is a sequel to JL WAR is what got me. I haven’t seen that in a while so I guess a viewing will be in order. I will buy this! Been waiting a long while to see something familiar instead of death and all the other off the wall stories. I’m sure Superman will play an important role but in these JL stories they typically spread out the characters and give them screen time as well so I wouldn’t count on Superman being over whelming. As for the R rating. There have been a couple others with an… Read more »

Looking back at this trailer I noticed Shazam’s right leg was glowing yellow. What’s up with that?

I thought that they weren’t going to follow the comic. Was I mistaken?
