After months of lying dormant, the Dark Universe film aka Justice League Dark is back! In my extensive report last week on the future of the DCEU post-Suicide Squad, I noted that, among the unscheduled DCEU films, Dark Universe was the most uncertain. Guillermo del Toro developed the script for two years before departing, leaving the project without a creative voice. Megaproducer Scott Rudin came in to save the film in November last year and started to get the ball rolling on the film.
Now almost a year later, Dark Universe has a new director: Doug Liman, freshly departed from Fox’s ill-fated Gambit movie. With a director on board, the film can finally come together apace and that means casting. The team will consist of John Constantine, Zatanna, Etrigan the Demon, Deadman and Swamp Thing. As for possible villains and plot description, keep reading until the end. Caveat: I’m not an expert on the comics, so my suggestions are based on what I know about the film and may come out of left-field.
Without further ado, here’s are my casting picks for the Dark Universe roles. Click Next to start!
