I'm looking forward to seeing which roster they'll use for the Justice League Dark. Constantine and Swamp Thing are probably the most likely candidates.

Yeah, but I also think Zatanna needs more love too, especially in live action. Maybe even Etrigan.

I agree, and I would actually prefer seeing these two over Constantine and Swamp Thing. There's probably room for all of them in the movie though.

Definitely curious to see what direction they go for in this movie, especially as they explore the more mystical side of the DCU and who all we'll see in it. It definitely has the potential to really showcase some impressive visuals and characters :D.

I'm also curious as to how much of a presence the main Justice League will have in this...I definitely expect the Trinity to show up, but it would be nice to see Aquaman and Shazam again after they skipped JLvsTT, especially given their own affinity with magic thanks to Arthur's trident and the nature of BIlly's powers :).

I think Zatanna is probably a shoe-in to be on the roster, and Constantine and Swamp Thing being in it is also no surprise but welcome nonetheless. I wonder if this movie will beat JLA in debuting them in animation ;)?

And here's hoping they're able to get back Matt Ryan to reprise Constantine :cool:.

I wonder if they might explore Batman and Zatanna's relationship that Paul Dini's established on multiple occasions, or if they'll go for Zatanna and Constantine :sweat:?

After watching the Killing Joke, I just hope Justice League 'Dark' is a more fun, pg-13 movie.

I'm looking forward to this one. It might be more interesting if the mainstream Justice League doesn't appear in this one, instead opting for a classic (and weird) adventure with the JLD.

I'll be honestly surprised if the Trinity doesn't show up to at least pay lip service to the main League in the movie, while most of the sreentime is dedicated to the JLD ;).

Zatanna is an obvious inclusion, she's the staple female member. I'd like to also see Deadman, Enchantress, Black Orchid, and Frankenstein.

I'm guessing this will be similar to Justice League vs Teen Titans in that some of the JL members will play supporting roles while the Dark team gets to be in the spotlight.

I was thinking they could maybe use Raven here, since they already introduced her in the last movie.

Ugh, I really don't like Zatanna's New52 based design here. Her clothes, her hair, even her face. I'm not against alternatives but really, they should have just taken artistic liberties and went with her original stage magician look, it was both classy and classic

Hopefully, they'll be moving away from all those New 52 looks now that the initiative has been canned.

Well, forgot about
Deadman, but yeah Zatanna could use a little flair. So that's three down, maybe at least three more.

Why am I not surprised Batman will play a role in this movie :p?

I'm actually surprised Bourassa went with the initial New 52 Zatanna look for this movie. While he's harkened to the New 52 designs to some degree, he's always added a little more flair or just gone with a more traditional design in most cases. I was honestly expecting something closer to her Young Justice look o_O.

Though I won't be surprised if we at least get one scene showing Zatanna on stage in her traditional costume :).

Constanine looks good and nice to have Deadman confirmed ;).

I don't think spoiler tags are really necessary.

The characters look pretty good to me though I'm sure it will look better in higher-resolution and eventually in animation. I had a feeling at least Batman will be in the movie.

Not sure about the source, but I noticed these images on Twitter. I'm guessing they're from SDCC.

Thanks! Batman's design would confirm that this is in the shared continuity.

This is the first time I've been really excited for one of the new52 inspired continuity. I really can't wait, these heroes deserve the spotlight. I hope the League proper only have cameos and the short run time gives each member of Dark something meaningful.

Here's a video from both The Watch Tower Database and Kuro The Artist about Dwayne McDuffie.

We are in the Endgame now...

And the winner of the competition is Pizza Pilot, which got 3 votes. Harpy Gee got 2 votes, and Missing The Mark got nothing. And that's the end of the competition. Thanks for participating. The article is next week.
Before streaming services like Netflix dominating the family entertainment industry, we had family networks on cable television. Quite honestly, I'm very fascinated by their history and their programming on how much they evolved over the years.

But here's what I'm wondering: why do they failed?
Clearly, People seemed to forget that the late Chrtistine Cavanaugh who originally voiced Chuckie Finster on Rugrats, retired from Voice Acting in like 2001, and Nancy Cartwright took over the role since then.
