Matt Ryan and Jason O'Mara Shed Light on Justice League Dark
Next year, Warner Bros. Animation and DC Comics are bringing a little darkness to the DC Animated Universe. After focusing so long on the likes of Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman and other household names, the mystical side of the DCU will finally get its due in Justice League Dark. Inspired by the New 52 comic of the same name, the upcoming direct-to-video feature stars Constantine, Zatanna, Deadman, Etrigan and Swamp Thing as they aid Batman (of course) in ridding Gotham of some demonic forces. We caught up with stars Matt Ryan, reprising his live action role of John Constantine, and Jason O'Mara, the DCAU's resident Batman, as well as supervising producer James Tucker and character designer Phil Bourassa, to talk about Justice League Dark at New York Comic Con.

here's another new Batman animated movie on the horizon from DC and Warner Bros. Animation. Shocking, I know. Due to arrive in 2016, Batman: Bad Blood centers around the disappearance of Batman himself, and features Nightwing, Damian Wayne and other members for the Bat-family searching for their mentor. Though it draws a little inspiration from events surrounding Batman, Inc., Bad Blood is another the DC Animated Universe's original tales. More importantly, it finally introduces some much-needed diversity into the animated Bat-family with additions of Batwoman and Batwing. At New York Comic Con, the creative team and some of the cast gathered to talk about the film. We were on hand for the round table session with director Jay Oliva, character designer Phil Bourassa and the DC animated feature supervising producer, James Tucker to talk about the film, and the importance of getting new blood beyond the traditional heroes into these direct-to-video features.
