Warners/DC may be developing a Zatanna movie

July 9th, 2020 by Marc Comments

We’re hearing that while the Birds of Prey are dead for now, DC has big plans for one of their other big female characters.

Word is that DC/Warners are developing a Zatanna standalone movie.

In the comics Zatanna is a powerful magic user, the daughter of another powerful magic user, Zatara.

She is also closely connected to John Constantine – who is played by Matt Ryan on The CW’s DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and we have speculated before that Constantine is the glue holding DC’s multiverse together (here) – and the Justice League Dark – who are getting their own TV series over on HBO Max (here).

There has been numerous rumours before that Zatanna was set for the big screen with the most recent being that she was set to appear in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad next year (here).

Interestingly, DC Comics writer Gail Simone seemed to confirm the movie was in development when she was asked if it was true on Twitter and replied: “Yep.”

Alright Gail, calm down… don’t give us too much information, now!

So that’s the news, folks… would you be excited for a Katanna movie? Do you think it would tie into the Justice League Dark series on HBO Max or will it be filed under the multiverse idea (here) that has become so big in the DC Universe recently? I want to hear your thoughts.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
