Doug Liman to direct Justice League Dark

Quote:
Warner Bros is continuing to explore other corners of the DC Universe beyond the core heroes such as Superman and Batman, this time putting the spotlight on its supernatural heroes.

The studio is tapping Doug Liman to direct Justice League Dark, breathing new life in its supernatural adventure project.

Dark was a fairly recent DC title that grouped together heroes such as John Constantine (who was the title character of a solo 2005 movie that starred Keanu Reeves), Deadman, Shade the Changing Man, Zatanna and Swamp Thing (who has his own Wes Craven-directed pic in 1982), among others.

The project was in development for several years as a directing vehicle for del Toro, a master of the macabre who tastes seemingly lined up with the material.

Del Toro will still be a producer on the project but Lim]anís boarding signals a tonal shift for the project.

Liman is known for his kinetic and propulsive action movie sensibilities thanks to his hits such as The Bourne Identity and Mr. and Mrs. Smith. He worked with Warners on 2014ís Edge of Tomorrow, the well-reviewed and well-regarded sci-fi time travel movie that starred Tom Cruise.

Liman is shaking it up with his next several movies, which include American Made, a 1980s drug cartel crime drama that reteams him with Cruise, and The Wall, a low-budget contained sniper drama for Amazon Studios.

Not surprised.

This is in the same vein as Cyborg and Shazam (DC's Captain Marvel)... suuuuuuure this is a thing that will happen.

C'mon, it was a del Toro flick to begin with. That's the kiss of death.

Looks like Justice League Dark movie is going back to the drawing board, Warner Bros was underwhelmed by a Director's Pitch.

If DC/WB can't get audiences to enjoy Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and The Flash, they sure as hell have an uphill battle ahead of them for the weirder characters like these.

Duh, WB.
