While the DC Cinematic Universe may draw plans for a Justice League Dark movie, DC Entertainment seem to have jumped in first with an animated movie.

The British Board of Film Classification have a new listing Batman: The Killing Joke and in the additional material section they have included A Sneak Peak at Justice League Dark.

Justice League Dark was part of DC’s New 52 initiative and starred John Constantine, Zatanna, Madame Xanadu, Deadman, Enchantress and Shade the Changing Man. The team were a sort of Justice League meets Suicide Squad, wherein a bunch a anti-heroes teamed up and became heroes. 

The live action version of the movie was going forward under visionary director Guillermo Del Toro, who was forced to stand down. Not it’s up for finding a new director and was looking Colin Farrell to star as John Constantine. It looks like it’s still stuck in development hell for now, so we’re more than happy to go with the animated movie while we wait for the DC Cinematic version.

DC’s animation arm is doing great work, so this is one to look forward to…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
