Can earth’s greatest heroes are in for an all-out winner take all brawl with Darkseid in Justice League Dark: Apokolips War
I’ve watched these films for the last six years and am always excited to see one of my favorite baddies take center stage and kick some superhero bootie! Darkseid has always been the ‘one to beat’ or (in my opinion) lose to because he’s brains and brawn! He has a great team of powerful evildoers to deligate and doesn’t sweat the small stuff. I’m incredibly excited to see and write a review of Justice League Dark: Apokolips War since I’m home trying to flatten the spread of Covid19! I’m looking forward to rewatching the other DC UniverseMovies while I stay at home!
The latest film in the popular DC UniverseMovies is Justice League Dark: Apokolips War where our heroes are against the ropes after intergalactic tyrant Darkseid. The Justice League lost the battle but is now working with Teen Titans, Suicide Squad and assorted others to defend earth and the surviving inhabitants. The film will be released by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Digital starting May 5, 2020, and on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack and Blu-ray Combo Pack on May 19, 2020, with an all-new DC Showcase animated short. Adam Strange offers insight into the space adventurer’s fascinating backstory features Charlie Weber (How To Get Away with Murder) as the voice of title character.
Justice League Dark: Apokolips War features the largest Super Hero cast in the history of DC Universe Movies with dozens of actors/characters spotlighted in a grand ensemble of talent reprising their roles from this six-year story continuum. Matt Ryan (Legends of Tomorrow, Constantine), Jerry O’Connell (Carter, Bravo’s Play by Play, Stand by Me) and Taissa Farmiga (The Nun, The Mule, American Horror Story) anchor the cast as Constantine, Superman, and Raven, respectively – the triumvirate determined to assemble the forces necessary to lead humanity’s final attack. Alongside that trio are the long-running core of Justice League voices — Jason O’Mara (The Man in the High Castle, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) as Batman, Rosario Dawson (Briar Patch, Daredevil, Sin City) as Wonder Woman, Shemar Moore (S.W.A.T., Criminal Minds) as Cyborg and Christopher Gorham (Covert Affairs, Insatiable, Ugly Betty) as The Flash – as well as JL-adjacents Rebecca Romijn (X-Men, The Librarians) and Rainn Wilson (The Office, The Meg) as the voices of Lois Lane and Lex Luthor, respectively. Tony Todd (Candyman) is the voice of the film’s key villain, Darkseid. The cast also boasts appearances by Camilla Luddington (Grey’s Anatomy) as Zatanna, Ray Chase (Justice League Dark, Final Fantasy XV videogame) as Jason Blood/Etrigan, Roger R. Cross (24, The Strain, Arrow) as John Stewart & Swamp Thing, Liam McIntyre (Spartacus: War of the Damned, The Flash) as Captain Boomerang, Hynden Walch (Teen Titans Go! Vs. Teen Titans) as Harley Quinn, Stuart Allan (Batman vs. Robin, Batman: Bad Blood) as Robin/Damian, Sachie Alessio (Batman: Hush) as Lady Shiva, and John DiMaggio (Futurama, Batman: Under the Red Hood) as King Shark. Directors Matt Peters (LEGO DC: Batman – Family Matters) and Christina Sotta (Young Justice) helm Justice League Dark: Apokolips War from a script by Ernie Altbacker (Batman: Hush, Justice League Dark) and Mairghread Scott (Wonder Woman: Bloodlines), who is also credited with creating the story.
