If you’re wondering what are the remaining two animated films for DC Animation, look no further. In the spring of 2020, a sequel to 2017’s Justice League Dark animated film will be released, titled Justice League Dark: Apokolips War. Speculated with this news is the appearance of Jack Kirby’s New Gods and the title for the animated film suggests the film to some degree will take place on Apokolips, home of the New God Darkseid.
