An end song for the current DC animated universe.

After the events of Reign Of The Supermen, the Justice League decides to take the fight to Darkseid and stop him once and for all. What the League doesn’t know is that Darkseid knows their plan and is ready for them. The attack goes horribly and many heroes die. We cut to two years later, and while Darkseid does have a strangle grip on Earth there is a resistance lead be the now de-powered Superman. Superman seeks out John Constantine for one last-ditch effort for an assault on Apokolips. With the odds stacked against them, with the resistance be able to defeat Darkseid and save the Earth?

This current wave of a collective universe first started in 2014 with Justice League: War and it was loosely based on the New 52 that was going on in DC Comics. This new initiative was produced by James Tucker, who really made it his own. I have to be honest, I haven’t been that big of a fan of these animated movies. I personally liked the ones like Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths and Justice League: Doom a lot better. 

This film wasn’t bad. It was definitely a good ending to what was started in 2014. I am curious what will be the next evolution will be.  The plot had good pacing to it but I found a bit muddled and there was so much going on. One of the main focus of the story is Damian Wayne. He’s a character I’ve never warmed up to in the comics at either, so I guess that makes it difficult for me. 

Once again though Phil Bourassa designs hit it out of the park. I really enjoy his interpretations of the DC Comics characters. I really hope we see more from him. 

Bottom line I’m only one person and with my own opinion. This film was a great way to go out on and I am curious what is next

Many thanks to Warner Brothers for letting us check this out!
