WATCH: The Darkest Forces of the DC Universe Unite in 'Justice League Dark' Trailer
We may not have a Guillermo del Toro-helmed 'Dark Universe' film anytime soon (Doug Liman has signed on to direct), but the animated DC Universe is filling the void with the upcoming Justice League Dark R-rated home video. The first trailer has arrived with Batman joining forces with DC's supernatural superheroes.

Batman (Jason O'Mara), Superman (Jerry O'Connell), and Wonder Woman (Rosario Dawson) and the rest of the Justice League uncover a global supernatural threat and turn to John Constantine (Matt Ryan, who played the live-action character on NBC's short-lived drama) for assistance. Swamp Thing, Zatanna, Dead Man, and Etrigan the Demon make up the magical, mystical wing of DC and are joined by familiar characters like Felix Faust and Destiny.
Justice League Dark will be available on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital formats in the early half of 2017.
In comics, the assembling of a team of heroes is not a new concept. But what if those "heroes" had been rejected for having lame powers? Valiant addresses this question in the fantastic new mini, Secret Weapons #1, starring Amanda McKee - the technopath codenamed Livewire.
Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Eric Heisserer (Arrival) and Harvey Award-nominated artist Raúl Allén (Wrath of the Eternal Warrior) have given this band of misfits a new life under the leadership of Livewire. What could have been treated as a parody is handled with great care and love as these psiots that Toyo Harada had stashed away after drawing out their powers but considered useless have found a new purpose.It's another great entry point for new readers and a rewarding one for longtime fans of Livewire and the Unity series.
Harada stashed Nicole (can speak to birds), Martin (can make inanimate objects glow), Owen (spontaneously summons a random object at any given time) and thr…
DC Entertainment and Archie Comics announce the crossover of epic proportions with HARLEY & IVY MEET BETTY & VERONICA. Their hijinks are brought to you by the real-life team-up of Paul Dini (HARLEY QUINN) and Marc Andreyko (WONDER WOMAN ’77), with art by Laura Braga (DC BOMBSHELLS). It all starts this October as these teams of best gal pals cross paths between Gotham and Riverdale!
“It's the sort of offer you scream out ‘YES!’ to before your eyes reach the middle of the email,” said Dini. “I've always wanted the chance to play in Riverdale, and to help Harley and Ivy invade it is a dream come true. Marc's a great talent and a good friend. Writing this series with him has been like sitting on the lawn during summer vacation and reading a big pile of DC and Archie comics. Except we have to stay indoors and type a lot.”
“It's going to be a blast to bring these amazing ladies together in this once-in-a-lifetime crossover,” said Braga. “Each character is different…

Ever since Frederick, an A.I. android, brutally murdered his owners (they were kind of dicks, though) robot whisperer, not "Robot Fighter" as in past iterations, psychologist Kerri Magnus has turned bounty hunter to bring the killer to justice. She's had to go down this rabbit hole of intrigue and tension as A.I. units seek their independence from their human overlords. They even have their own artificial world in the cloud that gives them some respite from their stupid slave owners.
