In 2014, DC started an animated story that started with Justice League War. Now, on May 5th, the story will conclude with the R-Rated animated feature, Justice League Dark: Apokolips War.

Where Marvel has largely led the day in big screen films, DC has generally created far better direct to DVD animation. From the looks of the trailer, this could be one of their best films yet. Helping make it happen is a stellar voice cast that includes Matt Ryan as John Constantine, Jerry O’Connell as Superman, Taissa Farmiga as Raven, Tony Todd as Darkseid, Jason O’Mara as Batman, Rosario Dawson as Wonder Woman, Shemar Moore as Cyborg, Christopher Gorham as The Flash, Rebecca Romijn as Lois Lane, and Rainn Wilson as Lex Luthor.

Culminating a six-year animated journey that began with the release of “Justice League War” in 2014, “Justice League Dark: Apokolips War” finds Earth decimated after intergalactic tyrant Darkseid has devastated the Justice League in a poorly executed war by the DC Super Heroes. Now the remaining bastions of good – the Justice League, Teen Titans, Suicide Squad and assorted others – must regroup, strategize and take the war to Darkseid in order to save the planet and its surviving inhabitants. This is truly the war to end all wars, and only the victor will live to enjoy the spoils.
