Stream Your Heart Out: “Justice League Dark: Apokolips War”
by Kyle Harper
One of the industries that has been hit hard by COVID-19 is the movie industry. With movie theaters being closed, companies have had to improvise on how they release their films by using streaming platforms and direct-to-video releases.
Despite this, superhero movies are still in demand by audiences. While Marvel has delayed the release of their upcoming project, “Black Widow,” DC decided to release their newest animated film.
DC’s film, “Justice League Dark: Apokolips War,” is the final movie in the DC Animated Movie Universe, which began in 2013 and spans twenty-two total movies. It was released on May 5 and has been well received by audiences. According to IMDb, the movie currently has a score of 7.8 out of 10.
The plot revolves around the Justice League mobilizing to its full extent against a galactic threat. Darkseid, a tyrannical god of the world Apokolips, has appeared and threatens to massacre life as we know it.
The Justice League plans on taking the fight to Darkseid, but not everything goes their way. Darkseid is a cruel and calculating opponent. He has no problem pushing the Justice League to their absolute limit.
The movie is called “Justice League Dark” for a reason. This isn’t your average cartoon that you used to turn on as a kid. This movie has no problem killing off beloved heroes as the world they know is plunged into dystopia and the shock factor is riveting.
It really makes you question if DC’s favorite heroes are capable of beating such a powerful opponent.
If you are a superhero fan and you’re looking for a more adult version of some nostalgic cartoons, this might be a film you should check out.
