Justice League Variations

Comic Book tells us:

... We will see a Justice League Dark animated feature from DC Universe in 2017, while director Doug Liman (Bourne Identity, Edge of Tomorrow) is set to direct the live-action movie version, Dark Universe, for DC Films. ...

Justice League Dark brings together fan-favorite mystical characters like John Constantine, Zatanna and Swamp-Thing for a team that defends the DC Universe from dark mystical threats. The animated feature will be a testing ground the same way the Assault on Arkham animated feature was for Suicide Squad.

From what we've seen of the Justice League Dark cartoon, the movie could be a smart combination of humor and horror; that is, if Doug Liman has that sort of "Sam Raimi" spirit in him. ...

The odd thing about the DC vs. Marvel competition? Ardent super-hero fans think that Marvel makes the coolest live-action movies, but DC/Warner Bros. has the edge with the animated versions. This has long been the outlook among the geeks that I know. But whether the playing field will tilt in the underdogs' direction in the coming year and decade is an open question.
