Bad Robot Developing JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK Movie & TV Show!
J.J. Abrams and Bad Robot are developing movie and TV ideas based on DC’s Justice League Dark! That said, Deadline reports that there aren’t any specific characters being developed.
The Justice League Dark is a fictional superhero team that consists of the more supernatural members of the DC Universe, handling situations deemed outside the scope of the traditional Justice League. The team originally featured John Constantine, Madame Xanadu, Deadman, Shade, the Changing Man, and Zatanna.
At one point in time, Crimson Peak and Blade 2 director Guillermo del Toro was working on a live-action Justice League Dark film titled Heaven Sent featuring Constantine, Deadman, the Spectre, Swamp Thing, Phantom Stranger, Zatanna, Zatara, Sargon the Sorcerer, and Etrigan the Demon. Then it was announced that Doug Liman would direct with del Toro and Scott Rudin producing and Michael Gilio writing. Obviously, neither version made it to the screen. Yet.
There was a Justice League Dark animated movie released back in 2017. It was directed by Jay Oliva from a screenplay written by Ernie Altbacker from a story by Altbacker and J. M. DeMatteis based on Justice League Dark by Peter Milligan and Mikel Janin.
It featured the voice work of Matt Ryan as John Constantine, Camilla Luddington as Zatanna, Nicholas Turturro as Boston Brand / Deadman, Ray Chase as Jason Blood / Etrigan the Demon, Roger Cross as Dr. Alec Holland / Swamp Thing, and Colleen Villard as Black Orchid.
James Tucker produced and Warner Home Video released it back on February 7, 2017.
