For awhile now it seemed that Justice League Dark would literally never see the light. Guillermo del Toro, who wrote a treatment of the film, was originally sought to direct the film as well with the tentative title being Dark Universe. But he dropped out of directing due to other commitments.
Variety has reported now that Doug Liman has stepped up to direct the live-action film. Liman, probably best known for Edge of Tomorrow, was originally going to direct Channing Tatum’s Gambit but has dropped out of it (the second director to do so). Not much else is known of the JLD film, such as if they plan to keep the Dark Universe title, but it is expected that the characters featured are John Constantine, Zatanna, Swamp Thing, Deadman, and Etrigan the Demon.
What do you think? Who would you want to see cast in the roles?
