The next film from WB Animation's "DC Universe Original Movie" line, Justice League Dark, is on the cusp of release. The film hits digital HD on January 24, 2017, and comes home on Blu-ray and DVD on February 7. In the film, Batman will team with a cast of supernatural heroes (erm, if you can really call them that) including John Constantine, Zatanna, Deadman, and Jason Blood who can let go, go, the form of man and bring forth the demon Etrigan.
In an exclusive clip provided to Comicbook.com by WB Home Entertainment, we see Batman going to Zatanna for help - until he's rudely interrupted by Deadman possessing his body. The three discuss one of the other members of the team who needs to be found to help Batman solve a mystery problem.
This is our first look at Zatanna in action in the movie, and she is glorious, in her classic tuxedo costume (fishnets included), and a great new haircut.
The official synopsis reads:
"When innocent civilians begin committing unthinkable crimes across Metropolis, Gotham City and beyond, Batman must call upon mystical counterparts to eradicate this demonic threat to the planet. Enter Justice League Dark, reluctantly led by the Hellblazer himself, John Constantine. Like Batman, Constantine is a cunning, often cynical loner who is the best at his chosen profession – but quickly realizes the sinister forces plaguing the planet will require help from other supernatural alliances. Forming a new "league" with sorceress Zatanna, otherworldly Deadman, and Jason Blood and his powerful alter ego Etrigan the Demon, this team of Dark Arts specialists must unravel the mystery of Earth's supernatural plague and contend with the rising, powerful villainous forces behind the siege – before it's too late for all of mankind.
"Actor Matt Ryan, who set the standard for the role of Constantine on the Warner Bros. live-action television series, returns to the role in animated form alongside Jason O'Mara (Terra Nova, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) as Batman, Camilla Luddington (Grey's Anatomy) as Zatanna, Nicholas Turturro (NYPD Blue) as Deadman, Ray Chase (Final Fantasy XV videogame) as Jason Blood/Etrigan, Roger R. Cross (24, Arrow) as John Stewart/Swamp Thing, Jeremy Davies (Justified) as Ritchie Simpson, Rosario Dawson (Daredevil, Sin City) as Wonder Woman, Jerry O'Connell (Stand By Me, Crossing Jordan) as Superman, Enrico Colantoni (Flashpoint, Veronica Mars) as Felix Faust, and Alfred Molina (The Da Vinci Code, Spider-Man 2) as Destiny.

DeMatteis and Ernie Altbacker (Green Lantern: The Animated Series) and teleplay by Ernie Altbacker. Sam Register is Executive Producer.
