Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has released a little taste of what is in store for the world’s greatest superheroes in the latest DC Universe Original Movie Justice League Dark. The R-rated animated adventure will be available on Blu-ray Deluxe Giftset, Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on February 7, 2017, preceded by a Digital HD release on January 24.
In the clip “Assessing the Situation,” Wonder Woman (voiced by Rosario Dawson) and Superman (Jerry O’Connell) present grim footage of inexplicable acts of violence being committed by seemingly ordinary citizens, which they suspect could be the work of supernatural forces. One particular masked member is less than convinced (guess who).
The clip also features the first appearance of John Stewart/Green Lantern (played by Roger Cross, who also voices Swamp Thing in the movie) as a member of the Justice League in a DCU animated flick.
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.
