This 2017, an upcoming American animated superhero film Justice League Dark will be released. The film is directed by Jay Olivia, Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and distributed by Warner Home Video. The film will be centering the team Justice League Dark, an occult group of heroes that will join together to deal with supernatural threats in particular that the Justice League couldn't always handle.

After batman, Wonder Woman and Superman, DC recently announced that they will be releasing a mystical side of DC Animated Universe and that would be the Justice League Dark. The film was inspired by The New 52 comic that was re-launched by DC comics back in 2011. The following superheroes that will be featured in the film are: John Constantine, Zatanna, Boston Brand / Dead Man, Jason Blood / Etrigan the Demon, Swamp Thing and Black Orchid; Batman will also be in the film, of course.

One of the things that people are excited about is the fact that John Constantine will be voiced over by Matt Ryan who also played the role of the exorcist in the cancelled TV show "Constantine" and reprised his role in a crossover episode in the TV series 'Arrow'.

"The DNA of the character has remained the same through all the incarnations," Ryan said.

"Obviously the Hellblazer stuff was a lot darker than the New 52 stuff, but I think I brought my Constantine to the table to try and tell the story with the situations we were in. I'd used whatever knowledge I'd obtained from reading the comics to implement that into his interactions with the Justice League Dark characters, who I hadn't interacted with in the live action show - Zatanna and Swamp Thing, who are both great. It's a shame we never got to do a scene with me naked on the actual show because I would have liked to have shown the tattoo on my ass." He added.

Justice League Dark will be available in both on-demand and Blu-ray in 2017.
