Batman is looking to put together a team of mystic superheroes that includes John Constantine in the new international trailer for Justice League Dark.

The upcoming R-rated DC Universe original animated film (the second one to get that rating after The Killing Joke) directed by Jay Oliva (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns) sees the return of Matt Ryan as the voice of everyone’s favorite occult detective John Constantine. Constantine is recruited by Batman (Jason O’Mara) and the Justice League to take on a supernatural threat, something the regular Justice League is not really equipped to handle.

So it’s up to Constantine with the help of the Dark Knight to recruit a new team of superheroes that can deal with the movie’s main villain and sorcerer Felix Faust (Enrico Colantoni), including Swamp Thing (Roger R. Cross), Deadman (Nicholas Turturro), Zatanna (Camilla Luddington), Etrigan the Demon (Ray Chase) and Black Orchid (Colleen Villard).

The script for Justice League Dark was penned by Ernie Altbacker from a story by Altbacker and J.M. DeMatteis (Green Lantern: The Animated Series) and is slated for digital release on Jan. 24 and on DVD and Blu-ray on Feb. 7. There’s a boatload of cool spellcasting scenes from John Constantine and Zatanna going on in the trailer below (with some of them looking a bit like the spells we saw in Doctor Strange, and guys, I’m not saying that as a bad thing at all, au contraire) so let’s have a look, shall we?
