In the wake of the film's release on Digital HD, Warner Bros. Animation has debuted the opening six minutes and credits sequence from its R-rated "Justice League Dark" animated film.
When innocent civilians begin committing unthinkable crimes across Metropolis, Gotham City and beyond, Batman must call upon mystical counterparts to eradicate this demonic threat to the planet. Enter Justice League Dark, reluctantly led by the Hellblazer himself, John Constantine. Like Batman, Constantine is a cunning, often cynical loner who is the best at his chosen profession – but quickly realizes the sinister forces plaguing the planet will require help from other supernatural alliances. Forming a new “league” with sorceress Zatanna, otherworldly Deadman, and Jason Blood and his powerful alter ego Etrigan the Demon, this team of Dark Arts specialists must unravel the mystery of Earth’s supernatural plague and contend with the rising, powerful villainous forces behind the siege – before it’s too late for all of mankind.
Directed by Warner Bros. Animation vet Jay Oliva, “Justice League Dark” stars Jason O’Mara as Batman, Camilla Luddington as Zatanna, Nicholas Turturro as Deadman, Roger R. Cross as Swamp Thing, Ray Chase as Jason Blood/Etrigan and Matt Ryan — reprising his role from the NBC series — as Constantine.
“Justice League Dark” releases today on Digital HD (for $19.99 in HD and $14.99 in SD), and February 7 on Blu-ray/DVD. A Deluxe Giftset Blu-ray — selling for $39.99 — will include a Constantine figurine, in addition to exclusive behind-the-scenes content, including an early look at the upcoming “Teen Titans: The Judas Contract” animated film.
