With all of the DC properties that are currently in production, one could be forgiven for forgetting about Guillermo Del Toro’s, Justice League Dark. It has been quite some time since we have heard any news on the project, leading some to believe that it may have been permanently shelved.

However, it would seem that Warner Bros are still set on bringing the project to the big screen. According to a report in the Hollywood reporter, Warners is shuffling around some of its comic book properties. New Line Cinema will produce films based on Vertigo properties, such as Sandman, while Warner Bros will produce DC projects, such as Justice League Dark, directly.

However, while this is good news, it would seem that there is some bad to accompany it. According to reports, Guillermo Del Toro may have to step away from the project to work on Pacific Rim 2.

While I am interested in Justice League Dark as a concept, the thing that got me truly excited for the project was Del Toro’s involvement. I personally hope that we will see Del Toro direct, as his sensibilities as a director would be perfect to bring the magical side of the DC Universe to life.

My name is James and I am a long time fan of Movies, TV and Comics. I am currently a student, wrapping up my education at Aberystwyth University. I have an undergraduate degree in film and television and I’m working on my Masters in scriptwriting. My personal favourite comic character is the Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), and I view the film adaptation as one of the most horrifying experiences I have had in a movie theatre. As far as film and television go, I am usually willing to give any genre a try, as long as the project is well executed.
