New ‘Justice League Dark’ Footage Premiered At NYCC

Though Justice League Dark is set to premiere sometime next year, attendees of NYCC had the privilege of seeing new footage firsthand. A series of four clips were shown, and Melissa Damore from CBR shared a detailed version of each. Her information on the first clip is the following:

“…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.”

Considering the fact that the opening credits were included in the clip, it’s safe to guess that it is an early glimpse of the film. In the second clip, NYCC attendees got to see the Justice League Dark in action:

“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.”

A third clip followed:

“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.”

Deadman apparently has an interest specifically in Batman, as Jason O’Mata (who voiced Batman) revealed, also stating that the character will try to possess him. And last, but not least, the final and fourth clip, featuring Swamp Thing, premiered:

“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.”

Sadly, the panel revealed that there was no set date for Dark. We can, however, expect it sometime early next year.
