Summary: The Justice league groups up and travel to the Apokolips to kill the Darkseid, but many of them die and rest are put up to slavery and the Darkseid takes control over the earth and destroys it. Justice League Dark: Apokolips War has its own distinctive Plot twists and an Amazing Climax, which Marvel feared to work on, in spite of having shown cues it could have.
What’s the story?
Justice League Dark: Apokolips War is based on one of the books by Geoff Johns Justice League: Darkseid War, Justice League Dark: Apokolips War is directed by well known directors Christina Sotta and Matt Peters and is written by E.J. Altbacker. It is the final film by the DC Animated Movie Universe. Justice League Dark: Apokolips War being the final and the last film by the DC Animated Movie Universe takes full advantage of it features a great story combined with a variety of character it offers and with a great ending in my opinion but for a final and the best movie of DC Animated Movie Universe ever produced is not quite up there as it should have been when compared to previously released movies by the DC Animated Movie Universe but it still easily can be said that it is one of the better film produced by the DC Animated Movie Universe. Justice League Dark: Apokolips War made its debut premiere at San Diego Comic Con which commonly known as Comic-Con in July of 2019.
The story starts when the Darkseid along with his armies conquers the earth to take control over it and destroy it and the justice league regroups once again to save the earth and kill the Darkseid and this time we get to see some new members also like John Constantine, lex Luthor and Zatanna, along with some other members they team up with the rest of the justice league team and they decide to travel to Apokolips to finish the Darkseid after his two failed attempts of taking control over the earth and the Teen Titans stay on the earth to defend it against the Darkseid’s army.
As they reach the Apokolips they are attacked by the Para dooms while they attack the justice league they kill many members of the justice league the remaining ones are put up into slavery by the Darkseid. The Darkseid also converts a few of them into the Cyborgs, but John Constantine escapes and travels back to earth while the Zatanna dies.
Later, the Darkseid completely takes over the earth along and his army and Para dooms roam around the earth and with the devices known as reapers which mine the earth’s core and kill anyone they encounter on their way. The surviving members of the justice league team blame Clark Kent, who has no power left as the Darkseid injects him with liquid Kryptonite for their failure.
Is it any good?
