DC’s Justice League Dark: Apokolips War appears to be the most massive entry in the DC Animated Universe, and it seems this is for a very good reason. According to ComicBook.com, the film will be the endcap of the shared animated cinematic universe.
Warner Bros. animated DC films have been in production since 2007, beginning with Superman: Doomsday. Many of the movies exist as standalone stories; however, some have been established within a larger continuity. The most expansive is the Justice League animated shared universe, which began with James Tucker’s Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox in 2013. Apokolips War is reportedly the ending point of this continuity.
Animated DC films will continue to be released for the foreseeable future. Still, it remains to be seen if a new continuity will be established or if Warner Bros. will focus on stand-alone entries.
The Justice League animated shared universe has been heavily influenced by DC’s controversial New 52 initiative. Given this continuity is coming to an end, perhaps the films will draw inspiration from DC’s Rebirth initiative, which followed it.
