Warner Bros. Home Entertainment just released a sneak peek video for DC Entertainment‘s and director Jay Oliva‘s Justice League Dark (2016). I have been behind this project since Guillermo del Toro was attached, but I think Oliva can more than deliver the goods. DC Comics’ characters featured in this film include John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Deadman, Zatanna, Black Orchid, and more. The animated film Justice League Dark releases on Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD later this Fall 2016. Voice talents include Camilla Luddington, Nicholas Turturro, Jason O’Mara, Matt Ryan, and Ray Chase.
Creative Director Mike Carlin said:
Justice League Dark is what it sounds like. It’s the dark side of justice. A group of supernatural heroes who band together loosely to take on occult threats, supernatural threats, threats that the real Justice League may be powerless against.
The mainstream heroes are not the right guys for the job. These are not guys who go to meetings and sit around a table. They kind of appear and disappear when needed.
Producer James Tucker said:
It’s a Justice League movie, but it’s not….They don’t look like your typical superheroes. They’re outcasts. No one is happy when they show up. If anything, with Justice League Dark, everyones’ frightened when they show up. They misunderstand them, so having monstrous people do heroic things is always kind of cool.
