From the NYCC JL: Dark panel:

http://heroichollywood.com/new-foota...gue-dark-nycc/

Quote:
The upcoming DC animated film, Justice League Dark, won’t premiere until early next year, but Warner Bros. Animation just teased some new footage for fans at New York Comic Con.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
“…the Justice League sat around a table to discuss a new global crisis: law-abiding citizens were creating chaos in the streets with no probably cause. Wonder Woman suggests magic as the source of the outbreak, which Batman dismisses despite past encounters with Circe and Trigon. When Bruce Wayne goes home, however, he has a supernatural encounter himself; he begins to see the name ‘Constantine’ etched into the mirror as well as the walls of his bedroom. The scrawling on the well then transitioned over into the film’s opening credits.”


For the second clip, though, NYCC attendees finally saw some of the Justice League Dark in action:

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
“Constantine uses a spell to force Jason Blood to transform into Etrigan in order to battle a handful of demons. Shortly after Etrigan changes back to Blood, Blood punches Constantine in the face and tells him he’s been fighting Etrigan for 500 years. He asked Constantine if he knew the risk, and Constantine said that he weighed the risk and decided saving his own skin was worth risk.”


There was a lot more revealed by the panel, including thoughts on how production was influenced by Harry Potter. Of course, a third clip was shown, adding Zatanna and Deadman to the mix:

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
“Constantine, Zatanna, Batman and Deadman visiting an old friend. Constantine encounters a few shrouds, who threaten to drag him down to hell. They express an interest in Batman, who they say ‘has cheated death many times.’”


Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Turns out Deadman has an interest in Batman, especially, as Jason O’Mara (who voices Batman) revealed that the character will try to possess him.


Last, but not least, the fourth clip finally includes Swamp Thing:

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
“Constantine, Batman, Zatanna, Deadman and Jason Blood go to meet Swamp Thing. Batman doesn’t buy that Swamp Thing exists. However, when Constantine casts a spell and threatened some ‘posies’ in his swamp, Swamp Thing rises from the swamp — but the clip cut away before Swamp Thing was truly revealed.”

Quote:
At the New York Comic Con Justice League Dark panel, director Jay Oliva talked about how the new animated supernatural superhero movie was inspired by Harry Potter, the Final Fantasy video games, and the Full Metal Alchemist anime.

“I’m a huge Final Fantasy fan. I was inspired by a lot of the magic I watched in a lot of my old video games,” Oliva said. “[I was also inspired by] things like Full Metal Alchemist. I take all of the things that I love and throw them into the DCU and come up with something new.”

Oliva explained that when magic is used in the movie, it takes on a different look depending on who is casting the spell. The demons have fiery runes, Constantine’s magic is green, and Zatanna’s is white or blue. He borrowed the transformation symbols from Full Metal Alchemist. He said this movie is essentially what his version of Harry Potter would look like.

So was the Killing Joke film and that film was just a hard PG-13. Nothing R rated about it.

While we may not see him in live-action for awhile, it was refreshing to hear Matt Ryan as John Constantine again. And based on this trailer, it does look like the animation here doesn't appear as stiff as The Killing Joke.

They better live up to that R rating, although I'm sure it's just a marketing ploy.

eh, we'll see. I don't have high hopes for it, but I want it to be somewhat better than the other Nu52 stuff.

Look, I'm a huge Batman fan but eventually DC needs to figure out how to market stuff without him. I mean we finally get a Justice League dark film and who is front and center? C,mon DC.

Swamp thing sounds cool but did they really need Batman? I'm so over that attention seeking diva

james tucker tweeted that recent changes in animation ratings means that past films that were rated pg-13 would have been rated R under current classifications.

Ever since they started doing the New 52 stuff it's been going downhill.

Apart from Gods & Monsters. JL vs TT was pretty fun as well.

Yeah, they should stop with the New 52 stuff, and possibly get a new creative supervisor.

So Batman who has no business being in JLD is front and centre. This is the crap that I'm too tired with to care these days to even argue with people on here with.

Batman and the other JL member have no business dealing with the supernatural/horror aspect of the wider DC universe. Leave it to Constantine and crew.

Apparently DC thinks Batman is the only thing that sells.

Honestly, if they really wanted to justify the R rating, they could do that with John Constantine alone, swearing like a sailor and all. But, of course, language doesn't appear to be one of the reasons for the rating, and they're clearly going for ****** New52 Constanteen instead of Vertigo Constantyne (rhymes with line) . I get the feeling he won't even smoke....

I guess I'll never get my Hellblazer John on screen
