Next year we’ll see Batman and Wonder Woman travel all over the world to recruit The Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg in Justice League. But if Zack Snyder and the DC Extended Universe on the big screen aren’t really working for you these days, there is an alternative. It’s called Justice League Dark and will see Batman teaming up with Constantine, Swamp Thing, Deadman, Zatanna and Ertigan the Demon.
No, the long brewing live-action Justice League Dark didn’t suddenly materialize overnight. This Justice League Dark is part of the DC Animated Universe and it comes from Batman: The Dark Knight Returns director Jay Olivia. And while the cartoon nature of it may have you thinking this is an all-ages affair, the MPAA has actually handed this an R-rated for “disturbing violence.”
You won’t really see that “disturbing violence” in this trailer, though. You’ll just see the Justice League Dark coming together to save the world from a whole mess of demons. Check it out.
Justice League Dark will be out in early 2017. If fan anticipation stays high, it may even get one night on the big screen, as The Killing Joke did earlier this year. We’ll update you if that ends up being the case.
