Meet the New Team Roster With This Trailer For Jeff Lemire’s ‘Justice League Dark #9’

You know, I really do hope trailers for new comic arcs become a big thing. The New 52 launch trailer last year was awesome, but we really haven’t seen any other trailers from DC since. Well, that’s all changed as a new trailer has dropped to mark Jeff Lemire’s (Animal Man, Sweet Tooth) takeover of the series. Hit the jump to see the trailer and get all the details.

There’s a lot of cool stuff in the trailer above for Justice League Dark #9, out tomorrow (Wednesday, May 23rd). First off, it obeys the modern rule of geeky trailers and sets it to dubstep. More importantly, we get a few spoilerish teases as to what’s about to come for the Dark team. First off, their new headquarters. We already knew that Jeff Lemire was basing them in the House of Mystery (no word yet on whether or not Cain or Fig and Co. will be making an appearance), and now we get a shot of that right off the bat.

Secondly, in the shot where Madame Xanadu is staring at a pile of corpses we can make out the bodies of Deadman, Zatanna, Constantine, Swamp Thing, and Frankenstein. So it looks like Swampy and Franky will be making an appearance in the run at least, and Lemire has already confirmed on Twitter that Buddy Baker AKA Animal Man will be showing up as well.

Near the end of the trailer, we get our official roster: Constantine, Zatanna, Black Orchid, Deadman, I Vampire (not sure why they didn’t use a character name. I haven’t been following the series so I’m not sure who it is, though I’d suspect it’s Andrew), and Dr. Mist.

I was already aJustice League Darkfan before, and hearing that Lemire was taking over just made me even happier. I’ll definitely be picking up his run starting with the debut tomorrow, May 23rd.

Finally, here’s the solicitation for the issue for anyone interested:
