Yesterday, Warner Bros. teased the Justice League Dark: Apokolips War trailer on Twitter and sure enough, today courtesy of IGN the trailer has been released.
Apokolips War looks to be the culmination of the entire DC Animated Movie Universe that began with Justice League War in 2014, with all the disparate heroes (and some villains) of the DC Universe teaming up to face a menace that threatens the entire universe. If you’re getting echoes of Avengers: Infinity War, you’re probably not the only one. Unlike live-action superhero projects however, animated films can feature any number of major and obscure characters on-screen without the headache that the Russo Brothers had the deal with in filming that iconic Endgame funeral scene.
An interesting decision to have it under the Justice League Dark moniker which probably justifies the R-rating.
Watch the Apokolips War trailer below and stay tuned for release date info.
Justice League Dark: Apokolips War 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 (Legends of Tomorrow, Constantine), Jerry O’Connell (Carter, Bravo’s Play by Play, 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 (Briar Patch, Daredevil, 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. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will distribute the film on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital in Spring 2020.
