‘Justice League Dark’ Featurette Introduces Animated Gang of Underground Superheroes

5 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The eight-minute featurette for “Justice League Dark,” that is included in the special features for “Batman: The Killing Joke,” has just been released for fans to check out. The animated film is Warner Bros. Animation’s latest DC project and features the superhero team composed of John Constantine, Black Orchid, Etrigan, Zatanna, Deadman and Swamp Thing.

The Justice League Dark is a team that focuses on supernatural and magical threats, not related to the Justice League in anyway. However, in the video it does show that Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, and Green Lantern will all be making brief special appearances. Though, Batman will play a larger role than any of the other Justice League supporting characters.

Comic Book Reviews: DC Round Up Week 07-20-2016

After a two week absence I return to see what the current state of DC’s Rebirth is in! How are the Gotham Siblings doing? Are they evil yet? What’s going on with Aquaman and the anti-Atlantism? Are those two silly Lanterns still squabbling over inane stuff? Well read on to find out all about the wonderful world of DC Comics!


Story: Dan Abnett Art: Philippe Briones Colors: Gabe Eltaeb

Review: So for some reason, even though Arthur painfully has put together this Atlantean Embassy, even though he’s saved the world (including America) countless times and has proven himself a hero, even though he is a Us Citizen, And even though Black Manta is also an American and blatantly guilty over the explosion at the Atlantean Embassy, we are to believe that everyone is like “well F*! You Arthur, »

Justice League Dark Gets a 8-minute Preview

26 July 2016 4:11 PM, PDT | Corona's Coming Attractions | See recent Corona's Coming Attractions news »

Justice League Dark started out as a DC comic book, taking the universe's magical and supernatural A-listers and putting them in their own group book. For a brief while Guillermo del Toro was championing his idea of a live-action movie, but that appears to be on hold in favour of Wonder Woman, Batman, Aquaman and Justice League flicks in the next few years.

With the release of DC's latest animated film, Batman: The Killing Joke, we now get a 8-minute preview of their next animated project: Justice League Dark. The team-up of DC's darksiders includes Zatanna, John Constantine, Etrigan the Demon, Swamp Thing, Black Orchid and Deadman, with cameos from Batman, Green Lantern and Superman as well.

The Jld producers have hired TV Constantine lead actor Matt Ryan to voice his animated counterpart, which is pretty much making him the go-to guy for any John Constantine work to be done. »

Newswire: DC confirms Justice League Dark animated film with Matt Ryan as Constantine

26 July 2016 3:46 PM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

Last month, we reported that DC was working on an animated film about the Justice League Dark team, a group of magic-based heroes who handle the threats that are too spooky for the regular Justice League. Now, with that controversial Killing Joke adaptation wrapped up—you know, the one that even the people who made it seem to hate—DC has officially announced Justice League Dark as its next animated feature. As that original report said it would, the confirmation comes from a behind-the-scenes featurette included on the Killing Joke disc, and it gives a quick introduction to the basic setup of the Dark team and a preview of which DC characters will show up.

Batman will be there, of course, appearing alongside John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Zatanna, Deadman, Etrigan, and Black Orchid. Also, as a fun surprise, the animated Constantine will be played by none other than Matt Ryan »

As revealed in a sneak peek special feature on the home video release of Batman: The Killing Joke (check out my review for that film here), Matt Ryan is officially voicing John Constantine in Warner Bros.

As for the rest of Justice League Dark‘s roster, we can only speculate based on what we see in the sneak peek. It appears that joining Constantine will

23 July 2016 11:11 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday, Cartoon Network released a highlight reel to show off its new DC Comics animated series, Justice League Action. Now, thanks to an interview conducted by Slashfilm, we have a few more details about the series, including the revelation that it will feature a whopping 152 different characters from the pages of DC Comics.

That roster includes 60 different heroes, and 40 different villains, according to producer Butch Lukic. While he of course didn’t go into full details about who we could expect to see, he did reveal that while the Trinity of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman would be “featured in most of the stories,” iconic and niche characters would be peppered in throughout the 11-minute episodes.

That list includes favorites like Plastic Man, John Constantine, Lex Luthor, Mr. Freeze, Riddler, Mr. Mxyzptik, Zod, and Darkseid, as well as lesser-knowns like Demons Three, Space Cabby (voiced by Patton Oswalt), Atrocitus, and Steppenwolf. »

DC’s 2017 Animated Movie Slate Announced, Includes Batman And Harley Quinn

23 July 2016 9:33 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »


Without a doubt, one of the things that excites me most when it comes to news trickling out of San Diego Comic-Con happens to be when Warner Bros. Animation announces the following year’s slate of DC animated movies. Thankfully, 2017 looks to be a good year on that front, as it will see the release of Batman and Harley Quinn, among two other unexpected entries.

Since 2014, WB Animation has followed a certain model when it comes to releasing these films: Two set in New 52 continuity – one Justice League, one Batman – as well as one out of continuity, standalone flick. For example, this year saw the releases of Batman: Bad Blood, Justice League vs. Teen Titans and Batman: The Killing Joke. Expect 2017 to somewhat honor this pattern, yet break the cycle in a most refreshing way.

The first animated film to hit shelves next year will be that of the recently rumored Justice League Dark. »

Comic Book Review: Hellblazer Rebirth #1

22 July 2016 1:21 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

   Over and over again we have talked about how these DC Rebirth titles are a great jumping on point for new or returning readers. This is also the case for Hellblazer and for once this is my first Hellblazer book I have ever picked up. My only exposure to John Constantine is through some of his appearances in Justice League Dark and the television show. In this issue John goes back home to London to Literally face his demon. What makes John so interesting is his unorthodox approach to defeating his foe. It seems like he would be just as content if he beats the demon or not. There is not much else to this issue other than a brief appearance by Wonder Woman, Shazam and Swamp Thing. I am very curious to see John’s attitude in the upcoming issues as threats get tougher and more complicated. I was »

Comic Book Review – Hellblazer: Rebirth #1

21 July 2016 1:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black reviews Hellblazer: Rebirth #1…

John Constantine’s lost weekend in New York City was fun, but London’s where his heart is—only a pissed-off demon and a curse on his soul stand in his way. Even Constantine’s questionable ethics are pushed to the limit when he puts eight million souls on the line to get what he wants….

What to make of Hellblazer: Rebirth? It’s not your traditional beast but then from what I know of John Constantine, he’s not your traditional DC hero either. This opening issue from writer Simon Oliver definitely makes you work harder than many of the other Rebirth titles in terms of catching you up with the character and his world, and coming from the perspective of a newbie you may end up a touch lost when it comes to who Constantine is, what he does, and what the series is going to be. »

Batwoman, Constantine, And Oracle Rumored To Appear On DC TV Shows

18 July 2016 8:08 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With San Diego Comic-Con kicking off in just a matter of days, we should all brace ourselves for an onslaught of news that only this time of year can bring. According to Bleeding Cool, they’ve heard some rumblings concerning not only ill-fated fan favorite Constantine, but also characters such as Batwoman and Oracle, which should excite many a fan.

Let’s start off with what I find to be the most intriguing: Batwoman/Kate Kane may have a recurring role this season when Supergirl makes its way to The CW. With Maggie Sawyer joining the show, it makes sense that her ex-girlfriend pop in to National City from time to time. I fully admit that even I would have previously thought the inclusion of a Batman Family character of this magnitude to be impossible, but with Superman putting in a few appearances at the start of Season 2, the door »

Rumour: The CW wants Constantine, Batwoman, Oracle and even Batman for the Arrowverse

18 July 2016 4:21 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the San Diego Comic-Con fast approaching, it’s only natural for rumours to start popping up suggesting what big announcements could be in store from the studios and networks at the pop culture event. Well, here’s a rather huge one concerning The CW’s Arrowverse, which comes by way of Bleeding Cool, who have a decent(ish) track record when it comes to DC’s small screen projects.

According to the site, The CW’s new acquisition Supergirl is set to see the addition of Kate Kane / Batwoman and Barbara Gordon / Oracle, and their will be modeled after Chuck Dixon’s Birds of Prey, albeit with Batwoman instead of Black Canary. Supergirl has recently cast the character of Maggie Sawyer, who has been in a relationship with Batwoman in the comic books, so it would not be too surprising if Kate Kane soon followed.

Colin Farrell, Michiel Huisman and Charles Dance rumoured for Justice League

7 July 2016 3:03 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Now, be sure to take this with a healthy pinch of salt, but according to rumours, Colin Farrell (True Detective) is in talks to join the cast of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, alongside a couple of Game of Thrones stars in Michiel Huisman and Charles Dance.

The reports come by way of CutTheCrapTV and Wayne Enterprises, neither of which appear to have any track record with casting scoops, and as yet there’s been no corroboration from any other reliable, proven sources.

This isn’t the first time that Farrell – who played Bullseye in the 2003 Daredevil movie –  has been linked to a DC role, with a rumour back in November of last year suggesting he was in the frame to play John Constantine in the Justice League Dark movie.

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, »

Has 'Justice League' Found A Star To Play Villain Steppenwolf?

6 July 2016 7:53 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

"We're not completely closed. We're close!"

That's what Justice League producer Deborah Snyder said during a recent set visit in London. She was responding to questions about whether or not the production had cast anyone to play the film's central villain, Steppenwolf, yet. 

The production revealed Steppenwolf would be the main villain for Justice League, and a deleted scene from Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice even offered up a glimpse of what the character will look like.

Some were caught off guard by the notion that they hadn't yet cast someone to play such a pivotal role, considering that interview was conducted on the 31st day of production. You had to imagine she wasn't exaggerating when she said said how "close" they were to making a deal, because they kind of had to be. 

So who could they get? Warner Bros. has a long, storied history when it comes »
