Also, it was the most violent movie in the DCAU. However, the plot was pretty mainstream considering it was the finale. It was the sequel of every Justice League Animated movie ever released. Suicide Squad to Teen Titans everyone got their fair share of screen time in the movie. Lately, DCAU is focusing a lot on Constantine, same happened in this movie, he got to be the main role just like in the Justice League Dark.
When it comes to Darkseid, he is always one step ahead of everyone. So, pretty much that sums up the plot. We got to see some intense battles and many emotional scenes on our screen.
The plot of Justice League Dark Apokolips War
The movie was pretty fast-paced. It is a part of a shared universe that flash created in the flashpoint. Darkseid was conquering world by world and was coming for Earth next. Superman realizes that they won’t stand a chance if he comes to Earth, so he planned to bring the fight to his place. So, Justice League comes up with a counter-attack on Apokolips. However, Darkseid was aware of their plans because he was spying on them through Cyborg, as he was using Apokolips-tech. When League arrives to take down Darkseid, he massacres a lot of them and made slaves the rest of them. Batman being one of them, Darkseid makes him second-in-line command because of his intelligent mind. Constantine flees leaving Zatanna to be killed, It turns out he is the key to save everyone.
Darkseid takes over Earth while Constantine and his demon friend Etrigan keep on drinking in a PUB, trying to figure out why he fled leaving her to die. Darkseid depowers Superman. Clark then explains everything to Constantine and asks him for help, then they visit the League’s place to reunite with Damian. Hoping Damian will help them in breaking batman free from Darkseid’s mind compulsion.
Lois Lane recruits Suicide Squad so that Clark and others can use the boom tube which is present in Lex Corp. Suicide Squad helps them in reaching Apokolips so that they can protect the Earth from destroying. Lois and the Suicide Squad then face Parademons on Earth on their own. We got to see a fighter Lois-lane in this movie.
Finally, they reach Apokolips, where they realize that former Justice League members are now under Darkseid’s control. Constantine however manages to free Wonder Woman from the control. In the meantime, Darkseid’s destroys Oa, the homeland of Green Lanterns. The team meets cyborg in a rather inconvenient condition. Darkseid arrives alongside with Batman. Damian breaks batman compulsion which enrages Darkseid, so he kills him. Raven on seeing this quickly loses control and asks Constantine to kill her so that her father won’t escape. However, he had other plans in his mind, he releases Trigon, father of Raven, and tries to make a deal. Trigon takes over the depowered Superman, which makes him more powerful, and kills Constantine.
Most Waited Battle of Justice League Dark Apokolips War: Trigon vs Darkseid
Trigon vs Darkseid was by far the most intense and most awaited fight in the Justice League Dark Apokolips War. Trigon in the body of Superman quickly empowers and Darkseid, and the fight goes on. Lois calls Superman to say a final goodbye, Superman quickly breaks free from Trigon’s control. Darkseid seals Trigon and then Super vs Darkseid begins.
Superman vs Darkseid
Superman, not his right mind, beats Darkseid a lot. However, Darkseid empowers him anyway. Zatanna revives Constantine telling him that Batman had a plan in case things went south. Raven revives Damian. Constantine then frees Trigon, and Trigon and Darkseid start fighting which allows Cyborg to teleport his friends to Earth while sacrificing himself and destroying the whole planet along with both of them.
Knowing everything happened because Barry caused the flashpoint, Constantine realizes there is no other way and convince barry to change everything back. Barry left with no other choice, creates another Flashpoint to save everyone.
Raven and Damian
We also got to see some glimpses of Damian’s and Raven’s love story, which fans were asking for since a long time. The ending was good, considering it was the last movie of this universe.
