The first trailer for the upcoming animated feature Justice League Dark is out and it's packed full of supernatural shenanigans. The film shows the world beset by a shadowy, demonic threat, forcing the Justice League to call in for some backup. You can see the trailer below:


The trailer is stuffed full of magic-based characters, including Zatanna, Deadman, Swamp Thing and John Constantine. Batman is also heavily featured, despite his decidely non-magical background. He will be acting as a viewpoint character for the film, apparently.

Matt Ryan, who who played Constantine in the NBC series of the same name as well as CW's Arrow, reprises his role and provides the voice of the British occult detective. He's a fitting addtion, as this movie is going to be second R-rated DC animated movie after The Killing Joke. Hopefully it turns out a little better than that one did

Justice League Dark is set to come to DVD and Blu-ray in early 2017.

The trailer makes this movie look like a lot of fun, so I'm optimistic. (I like Batman acknowledging that Alfred is the person responsible for keeping his angst in check). What do you think? Are you excited for this movie?
