Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson revealed he would make a Constantine film over Justice League Dark.
In 2016, Scott Derrickson joined the Marvel family as the director of Doctor Strange, which proved to be a box office hit and paved the way for the titular hero to make further appearances in the MCU. While Scott Derrickson was initially on board to helm the Doctor Strange sequel, he later dropped out as director over creative differences with the studio.
However, Scott Derrickson appears to at least be interested in helming a DC film, as indicated by his response to a fan who asked if he would be open to directing a Justice League Dark movie. In his reply, Scott Derrickson noted that he would prefer to make a Constantine film.
For those who are unaware, Justice League Dark is a fictional superhero team consisting of DC Comics’ more supernatural characters, with occult detective Constantine being a prominent member. Now, J. J. Abrams and Bad Robot are developing Justice League Dark movie and television projects under his new deal with Warner Media.
