Before we look at what Justice League Dark: Apokolips does and doesn't have to work with, let's take a moment to review the comic book series in question. The following piece will examine what viewers may expect from the movie as well as provide some analysis on why fans who enjoy this series and this Justice League Dark comic should be excited about this movie as well.
The DC comics series that is the basis for the movie is written by John Cassaday and illustrated by Mike Norton. These two writers are two of the most popular writers in the comic book world, and it is no surprise that they will be writing the screenplay for Justice League Dark: Apokolips.
The first thing that Justice League Dark: Apokolips does not have to work with is continuity. The series itself doesn't concern itself with the overall continuity of the world of DC comics, so it will be easy for fans to enjoy Justice League Dark: Apokolips without having to worry about continuity issues.
There is also some controversy over whether or not the movie's plot fits in with the overall continuity of the story that has been written. This is the same criticism that has been leveled against the Man of Steel, and it will be up to fans to determine if this criticism is fair. Fans are obviously hoping that the director of Justice League Dark: Apokolips will use the film as a launching point to investigate whether or not the plot of the comics can be adapted into the movies that feature DC's big screen heroes.
Although it may be easy to enjoy Justice League Dark: Apokolips with little connection to the actual Justice League comics, there is plenty to enjoy in terms of the actors that will be playing these characters. Amber Heard is no stranger to the DC Universe and, in fact, has already acted in two Justice League Dark movies. She is one of the most talented actresses in Hollywood, and fans should definitely give her chances with the series.
Headed up by the talented J.K. Simmons, the Justice League Dark television series has featured many different characters throughout its run, and it will be exciting to see Simmons return as one of the main players in Justice League Dark: Apokolips. Simmons' contributions to the television series have made him a respected voice in the superhero genre, and fans are sure to enjoy his casting in the comic book world as well.
The television series is also among the most popular in the Justice League Dark series, and fans who have never had the chance to see the show will be eager to see Justice League Dark: Apokolips. There will be a full season of ten episodes to enjoy in this film, so fans should check their schedules and catch up on what has been released to date. This is one of the best options for fans who don't have a lot of time to enjoy the series.
It won't be long before fans get an opportunity to see Justice League Dark: Apokolips in theaters. This will be the first full installment of the film franchise, and fans should be eager to see what they are in store for once the credits roll.
