When a bunch of incredibly super-powered heroes get together to form a crime-fighting, worlds-defending organization like the Justice League, those Type A personalities are bound to butt heads from time to time. Batman, despite being a member of the DC Trinity and a founding member of the League historically, tends to be the rough edge in the group. He’s also one of the only members who walks in both worlds: the one in which fellow Justice Leaguers battle terrestrial and alien adversaries alike, and the one in which magical malcontents become a real problem for the otherwise competent heroes.
That’s where Justice League Dark comes in. When the well-known Justice League finds themselves faced with a supernatural problem with magical elements, they tend to call on John Constantine, Etrigan the Demon, and others who are aligned with the more mystical side of reality, along with Batman, of course. Though, in this new clip from the upcoming animated DC Comics movie, Bats is skeptical that magic has anything to do with the current predicament; he states his opinion on the matter with a pretty fantastic one-liner. We’ll find out who’s right when Justice League Dark arrives on Blu-ray/DVD on February 7th, and via Digital HD on January 24th. Keep an eye out for announcements of bi-coastal premieres coming soon!
In Justice League Dark, Matt Ryan reprises his role of John Constantine and is joined by a voice cast that includes Jason O’Mara as Batman, Camilla Luddington as Zatanna, Nicholas Turturro as Deadman, Ray Chase as the demon Etrigan, and Roger R. Cross as Swamp Thing.

This all-new clip features the Justice League assessing the situation — and at least one member of the group not quite believing in other-worldly influences. The clip also features the first appearance in a DC Universe Original Movie of John Stewart/Green Lantern as a member of the Justice League.
Here’s the necessary details on the upcoming Blu-ray release along with the official synopsis:
To battle unparalleled supernatural forces, Batman must combine efforts with a new team of heroes – led by occult specialist John Constantine – in the next DC Universe Original Movie, Justice League Dark. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment, the full-length animated film arrives from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Blu-ray/DVD on February 7, 2017, and via Digital HD on January 24, 2017.
When innocent civilians begin committing unthinkable crimes across Metropolis, Gotham City and beyond, Batman must call upon mystical counterparts to eradicate this demonic threat to the planet. Enter Justice League Dark, reluctantly led by the Hellblazer himself, John Constantine. Like Batman, Constantine is a cunning, often cynical loner who is the best at his chosen profession – but quickly realizes the sinister forces plaguing the planet will require help from other supernatural alliances. Forming a new “league” with sorceress Zatanna, otherworldly Deadman, and Jason Blood and his powerful alter ego Etrigan the Demon, this team of Dark Arts specialists must unravel the mystery of Earth’s supernatural plague and contend with the rising, powerful villainous forces behind the siege – before it’s too late for all of mankind.
