It’s going to be a while before we ever get to see Guillermo Del Toro’s dream of a Justice League Dark Movie. In the interim, DC has created an animated feature that brings all of their supernatural heroes together. Even better, with the release of the first trailer, we are getting a chance to hear Matt Ryan back in the saddle as Constantine. Hopefully, he’ll also be popping up in at least one episode of Arrow or Legends of Tomorrow this season.

The animated film is due out this fall and will serve as an origin story for the team, with some assistance from Batman, who will be the audience’s conduit to the story.

The Justice League Dark, or JLD, is a fictional superhero team that appears in comic books published by DC Comics. First appearing in Justice League Dark #1 (November 2011), the Justice League Dark originally featured John Constantine, Madame Xanadu, Deadman, Shade, the Changing Man and Zatanna. The team consists of the more supernatural members of the DC Universe, handling situations deemed unfit for the traditional Justice League.
