There have been rumblings of a Justice League Dark movie in the works since as far back as 2012. Director Guillermo del Toro was once supposed to be behind the camera for an assembly of DC Comics characters such as Constantine, Swamp Thing, Jason Blood/The Demon, Madame Xanadu and Anton Arcane, but he ended up falling away from the project nearly a year ago. More recently, some possible casting and director contenders have emerged, but we haven’t heard anything since last fall.
Now fans waiting for a Justice League Dark movie can pass their time with a forthcoming straight-to-DVD animated movie that’s in the works according to the supplemental features on the forthcoming home video release of the animated adaptation of Batman: The Killing Joke. Find out more about the Justice League Dark animated movie below. Read More »

Comc book fans who were looking forward to seeing Justice League Dark hit the big screen with director Guillermo del Toro behind the camera had their hearts broken when the filmmaker stepped away from the project over the summer. Since then, Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller was rumored to be offered the job, but he has chosen not to be involved as well. Now a new rumor gives us a couple more options for a potential Justice League Dark director.
As of now, Evil Dead remake director Fede Alvarez and Big Bad Wolves directing duo Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado are said to be the top contenders for the job, which gives us a good idea of what kind of tone Warner Bros. might be going for with this supernatural comic book adaptation.

The mere fact that a Suicide Squad movie is coming out next year is proof that Warner Bros. isn’t afraid to dip its toe into the weirder corners of the DC comic book world. And that’s great news because the weirder corners of the DC universe are where the best characters tend to hang out. Forget about Batman and Superman and their dawn of justice – let’s see the dark and magical likes of John Constantine and Deadman and Swamp Thing and Zantana team up on the big screen.
While we’re bummed that Justice League Dark will no longer be a Guillermo del Toro joint, we’re excited that it’s still in the works and is still utilizing many of the characters and concepts from del Toro’s screenplay. The film is far enough along in development that the names of certain actors and actresses are starting to come crawling out of the rumor mill. So who’s in contention for Constantine, Swamp Thing, and Madame Xanadu? And who apparently the frontrunner to play villain Anton Arcane? Let’s dive in.

There have been a lot of rumors swirling about the future of the Man of Steel lately. The sequel to his 2013 revival from Zack Snyder has been rumored to be one of the projects that Mad Max: Fury Road helmer George Miller could direct, but the film has also been said to be on “permanent hold” until Warner Bros. Pictures really figures out what they want to do with the Big Blue Boy Scout.
In addition, there have been rumblings that Warner Bros. wants more Batman in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and less of the Man of Steel (though Snyder may have had a reasonable explanation for that). Still things have been somewhat uncertain for the future of Superman in the DC Comics universe.
However, fans probably shouldn’t worry because Superman will always be an integral part of this comic book world, especially with Justice League on the way. And a new rumor actually debunks the “permanent hold” status of the sequel, revealing a potential Man of Steel 2 release date window as well as another potential DC Comics project for George Miller.

The news that Sandman would move from Warner Bros. to New Line, along with other potential movies developed from Vertigo Comics titles, also had a related piece of information. For a couple years Guillermo del Toro has been developing Justice League Dark, a team film that would incorporate characters like John Constantine and Swamp Thing. At first we assumed that project would also move to New Line.
But Justice League Dark is staying at Warner Bros., the better to keep characters who are primarily DC heroes in house. Thing is, Guillermo del Toro is no longer developing it. Read More »
