Dark Universe (or Justice League Dark)
First Announced/Speculated: August 2016
Director: For the longest time, Guillermo del Toro was at the helm. However, scheduling conflicts hit and the man who seemed most excited about the project had to step down. Now, Mr. and Mrs. Smith and Edge of Tomorrow’s Doug Liman is in charge.
As of May 23, 2017, Doug Liman has departed the project. WB is reportedly on the hunt for a replacement; IT director, Andy Muschietti is allegedly on the list.
Screenwriter(s): It hasn’t been confirmed, but the film may utilize a script written by Guillermo del Toro.
Story: Information on this front is unfortunately scarce, but Liman is promising this film won’t be like any other comic book movie we’ve ever seen. Yes, who hasn’t heard that one? Although, the nature of Justice League Dark already sets it up for something completely unique that will hopefully be special.
Liman is also teasing a “character driven” story. Because of this fans should expect to see an exploration of John Constantine’s humanity.
How much of the above will remain a focus following Liman’s departure is yet to be determined.
