A much shadier team assembles in WB Animation's Justice League Dark trailer

Last we heard, Colin Farrell was rumored to be up for a role in Doug Liman's JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK film and now, BAM!, here's a trailer for . . . a JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK animated movie? For those unaware, the story follows that of some of DC's shadier characters, like John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Deadman, Shade the Changing Man, and Zatanna, among others, as they do . . . hero things. There's been no word about the live-action adaptation, if that's still happening, but you can check out what WB Animation has in-store with the trailer below.

So is that doing anything for you? I'm admittedly a novice in the realm of comic lore, but even with these characters together, the film almost feels like SUICIDE SQUAD lite. I didn't check out their animated KILLING JOKE feature because it looked hella cheap, and I'm going to have say the same for this. Call me when Doug Liman has something to show us.

JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK will hit Blu-ray/DVD in 2017.

I"m keeping an open mind. But I'm skeptical about how much this movie is actually about the Justice League Dark characters. WB Animation has used their movies to promote these lesser known characters in a peripheral sense before (i.e. Assault on Arkham - Suicide Squad by way of Batman). This looks like it's much of the same based on the fact that Batman figures into the story in a big way, as do the rest of the Justice League characters. But I'm not afraid to be proven wrong...

I was hoping to get more excited over this to be honest. Don't get me wrong though, I'll check it out for sure but I'm not to keen having the JLA in the film and batman teaming up with Constantine and Co. Also, I'm not a big fan of the "Manga style" DC is doing these days, I mean superman looks bad here, doesn't he?

The R-rating might serve Justice League Dark very well. DC needs to differentiate itself from Disney's offerings. A more adult approach accomplishes that goal--as long as the movies are still good. Justice League Dark looks like good stuff.

Looks fun and the animation looks better here than it did in 'The Killing Joke'.
