After years in development, it Warner Bros. has brought on a new producer and is looking to move forward with their planned Justice League Dark film titled Dark Universe. The Tracking Board reports that Oscar-winning producer Scott Rudin (Steve Jobs, No Country For Old Men) will produce the film and is currently making updates to the script as well as approaching directors. Word is that Rudin is hoping to start the cameras rolling on the project sometime in 2016. The film was originally developed by Guillermo Del Toro, who will stay on as producer, but has since moved on to other directing projects.
While details surround this project are scarce at the time, the site did add that they have heard the film “a series of ancient tomes stolen by a madman hellbent on the destruction of humanity. When he learns of this, occult detective John Constantine seeks out a group of heroes that specialize in the mystic and arcane in order to save the world.” Del Toro at one point mentioned that the line-up would consist of Swamp Thing, Deadman, Zatanna, and Etrigan The Demon. This team will co-exist as part of the DCEU, similar to what Marvel did with Guardians Of The Galaxy, and could likely cross paths with the Justice League at some point down the line. Keep checking back for further updates regarding the project.
