It’s all change in the world of superheroes. In 2013 Guillermo Del Toro revealed he was working on a comic book movie set in the world of DC’s Justice League Dark. However, he left the director’s chair and decided only to produce.
Doug Liman meanwhile has been attached to helm Fox’s X-Men spin-off Gambit, starring Channing Tatum. He’s now left that movie behind and will be replacing Del Toro on the Justice League Dark film, which is now called Dark Universe.
The movie will revolve around a grittier, darker version of Justice League, with Variety suggesting the film will include John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Deadman, Zatanna and Etrigan the Demon. However, exact plot details are being kept under wraps. Warner hopes that the movie will be a big part of their expanding DC Universe.
