After a long wait, Justice League Dark is finally releasing to the public. Moviegoers are eagerly awaiting to see the premiere of the movie on April 10th, and now you can watch the movie online as well.
The newest adaptation of the iconic DC comic series will be featured on the new streaming service Netflix. Justice League Dark: Apokolips will be released on April 10th. In this movie, the evil organization known as Apokolips is captured by Matt (Joseph Morgan) and Alana (Courteney Cox). The two want to use Apokolips for their own means, but someone has to protect it.
Of course, they decide to get rid of the supervillain that rules the dimension. Since they know what type of magic that Apokolips is famous for, they do some research to find out if any of the heroes have plans to kill them. They capture Barry Allen, Hal Jordan, and John Constantine and have them control the powers of all the characters in the movie. Constantine later escapes and steals one of the mystical objects to bring down his enemy.
As they head to the other world to kill all the heroes, Constantine has one more surprise up his sleeve for the otherworldly villain. He sends two of his other inmates to assist in the process and the other one is a guy that has magical powers. As the heroes arrive in their world, they see that it's not as it seems.
The Darker world is populated with several living beings, each with different powers. It's up to the Justice League to stop them. The action that takes place in this movie is quite interesting and there are several moments where the film and the comics will collide. For example, there is a scene where Constantine stands on a ledge that has flames coming out of it, which is somewhat similar to the flames seen in Batman or Superman: Dawn of Justice.
We can only guess that the dark nature of the movie will probably be considered similar to that of The Dark Knight, but one major difference is that in this film, you won't see Batman and Superman fighting side-by-side. This makes Justice League Dark: Apokolips the second parallel comic-to-movie entry in the series. In Justice League: Doom, we were treated to a movie with an almost entirely dark tone that set the tone for the movies after that.
In the end, Justice League Dark: Apokolips is a fun movie that only lack one little thing, but that's probably a good thing. The problems arise when the movie tries to show us something that doesn't exist in the comic.
What does Apokolips really look like? Does it really live in a castle? We just don't know yet and that is probably why the movie is fun to watch and will likely be worth the time invested in it.
