Doug Liman has been attached to a couple comic book properties over the years, neither of which made their way beyond the planning stages. First there was 20th Century Fox’s embattled X-Men spin-off Gambit, which Liman left before shortly boarding and departing Warner Bros.’ Justice League Dark. But it’s not because the Edge of Tomorrow director is trying to live by his acclaimed 2014 film’s mantra of “live, die, repeat” in his career. Liman revealed why he left both projects, and why the Gambit movie is officially dead in the dust.

While the union of the Justice League only just happened on the big screen for the first time last month, their darker, fantasy counterparts from Justice League Dark have been in development for years. The project has gone through several directors, including Guillermo del Toro a little while back and most recently Edge of Tomorrow helmer Doug Liman, but it’s currently without a director as a new script from Housebound scribe Gerard Johnstone is being written right now. However, as we wait to see what happens with the DC Comics property, we can imagine what it might have been like if another filmmaker ended up getting hired for the job.
