Justice League Dark: Apokolips War, the next animated feature after Superman: Red Son which premieres next week, finally reveals the large cast involved in the next animated movie.
The animated movie was first announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2019, but no official details were revealed beyond the title at the time. Last week, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment gave ComicBook.com an exclusive first look at the cast list, and the first official still image from the forthcoming Justice League Dark: Apokolips War.
Justice League Dark: Apokolips War, will have the assembled might of the Justice League Dark and Justice League going up against Darkseid, the tyrant god of Apokolips. According to the Comicbook.com, the film will serve more or less a direct sequel to Justice League: War, the first animated movie set in the current continuity of the DCU.
Whereas Justice League: War was an almost straight adaption if Geoff Johns and Jim Lee’s first arc of The New52 Justice League series, Apokolips War is an original story not adapted from the comics universe.
In the film, the two Justice Leagues square off against Darkseid, in a winner-take-all battle as the fate of all humanity hangs in the balance.
The film also features one of the largest Super Hero cast in the history of DC Universe Movies, as many actors will reprise their roles from previous DCU animated features. Matt Ryan (DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Constantine), Jerry O’Connell (The Death of Superman, Satanic Panic, Stand by Me), and Taissa Farmiga (The Nun, The Mule, American Horror Story) Constantine, Superman and Raven, respectively, as the anchor heroes of the film. Also returning to their well-known roles are Jason O’Mara (The Man in the High Castle, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) as Batman, Rosario Dawson (Briarpatch, Josie and the Pussycats, 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 Rebecca Romijn (X-Men, The Librarians) and Rainn Wilson (The Office, The Meg) as the voices of Lois Lane and Lex Luthor.
