Justice League Dark is finally happening. Doug Liman has been set to direct Warner Bros.’ DC adaptation. Scott Rudin will produce, and Michael Gilio will write the screenplay. If you’ve got a bit of déjà vu that may be because Liman was recently linked to another superhero project, 20th Century Fox’s Gambit. As you’ve probably guessed, he’s not making that one anymore.

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 »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
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.
