News has been circulating around the internet recently about the revival of DC ‘s Dark Universe (or whatever they are calling it) movie and has gotten fans excited. The property, based off of the Justice League Dark comics from DC, was initially brought to life by Guillermo Del Toro a few years back. It had looked to be a lost cause after Del Toro had to drop out of making it, though there was a script he penned floating around which led to plenty of will-they/wont-they speculation.

With director Doug Liman jumping ship from Fox’s Gambit production to come aboard and helm this project, it seems Warner Bros. has finally begun to lay a foundation for the film. Personally, I’m a huge fan of the books, so to hear that this is greenlit and set to star all the regulars like Constantine, Zatanna, Swamp Thing, Deadman and Etrigan has me extremely excited. And it’s being directed by the guy who made Edge Of Tomorrow! I’m all in.

Considering this, I decided to talk about a few things from the source material that I hope will find some way to be incorporated into the film or possible future installments.

    I actually agree with everything written here.

    All we need to see in the next dceu movie is a daring extreme effort to be less coma-inducing by way of being more entertaining.


    Everything sounds great here. I don’t think DC will use Tim Hunter, for fear of comparison to Harry Potter.

    Trinity War would be a great story to adapt into an overarching storyline for the DCEU, and really put magic on the map in these films. Throw in Shazam into the mix, the Amazons, the Atlanteans, and you’ve got a mega story.

    This is a story that could out in the back drop of the New Gods story, as well as the Blackest Night saga for the GL franshise, and you’ll have an Extended Universe like none other.

      Yes please! I would love to see Trinity War

    I cannot wait for magic and horror to get introduced into the DCEU. As a lifelong DC fan I can’t believe a frickin’ JL Dark movie is getting made.
