Today Warner Bros released the trailer for their next animated feature, Justice League Dark. The trailer depicts the world being attacked, not by the usual big bad super villain, but by demons. We find our usual DC supergroup overwhelmed with this level of the occult. The Justice League turns to an unlikely ally, John Constantine (i.e. Hellblazer) to take on the spawn of the underworld.

Riding high on the success of recent dark, violent, caped features, Justice League Dark will receive an R rating. This will mark the second adult animated movie from the WB, preceded by the underperforming Batman: the Killing Joke. It seems that the popularity of superhero feature films have paved the way for their animated brethren to mature along with their audience. We at BadCoyoteFunky look forward to our DC faves kicking some series demon ass! Personally, I love 2005s Constantine starring Keanu Reaves and I’m stoked to see him portrayed in his natural cell-shaded habitat.
