J. League Dark, “Ant-Man” Get Animated

A new listing from the BBFC indicates that the next direct-to-video feature title from WB Animation, after the release of “Batman: The Killing Joke” this Summer, will be a “Justice League Dark” adaptation.

The BBFC classification indicates ‘Killing Joke’ will boast a sneak peek at JLD. What impact that will have Guillermo del Toro’s long gestating live-action adaptation s unclear though likely negligble.

Over at rival camp Marvel, Variety reports that Marvel Animation is working on a pair of TV shorts series – “Ant-Man” and “Rocket and Groot” – wth both being done by French filmmakers. Ugo Bienvenu and Kevin Manach will do “Ant-Man” while Arnaud Delord is working on ‘Groot’.
