Warner Bros.' Dark Universe Gets A New Director

3 hours ago | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

While never officially announced, Guillermo del Toro has in the last few years been hyping up Dark Universe, his vision of DC Comics’ Justice League Dark, a collection of supernatural heroes who tackle the problems the Justice League can’t, made up of the likes of John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Zatanna, and Etrigan the Demon. Think of the Bprd from Hellboy, and you would be on the right track. The project has been seemingly stalled recently, with Del Toro sidetracked by other projects, and now Variety are reporting that has left the project, with Go and The Bourne Identity's Doug Liman signing on as his replacement. This puts into question the fate of the Channing Tatum starring X-Men spin-off, Gambit, which Liman was originally set to direct, but has been beset by problems lately. According to the publication, him joining Dark Universe is the result of a mutual split »

Doug Liman to direct Justice League Dark movie, exits Gambit

8 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like Doug Liman has grown tired of waiting for 20th Century Fox to get its oft-delayed Gambit movie off the ground, as it has been revealed that the Edge of Tomorrow director is swapping the X-Men franchise for the DC Extended Universe – and more specifically, the supernatural side of the Dceu.

Variety is reporting that Liman has signed on to direct Justice League Dark for Warner Bros., with the studio reviving the project which spent several years in development under Guillermo del Toro (who remains attached as a producer). The report also states that the line-up will feature John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Deadman, Zatanna and Etrigan the Demon, and suggests that the film “will play a major role” in the Dceu.

DC's Justice League Dark Movie Gets Edge of Tomorrow Director

19 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warner Bros. still has a lot of confidence in their DC Comics movies, despite dreadful reviews for both Suicide Squad and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Even with a full slate already announced for the next few years, the studio is working on even more projects for their DC Extended Universe. That being the case, it looks like Warner Bros. is finally moving ahead with a Justice League Dark movie, also known as http://movieweb.com/justice-league-dark-movie-story-production-start-date/Dark Universe, with director Doug Liman at the helm.

Variety broke the news on Wednesday, confirming that the Edge of Tomorrow director would be taking on the movie. According to the report, Scott Rudin, who has long been attached to the project, will be producing Justice League Dark, with Michael Gilio writing the script. Warner Bros. has yet to officially make the announcement, but Variety is confidently stating that this is indeed happening. »

Justice League Dark: Doug Liman to direct

Edge Of Tomorrow director Doug Liman has signed up for Justice League Dark for Warner Bros, reports suggest...

Holy moley. We might finally get that Justice League Dark movie that's been in development within the DC Universe for years...

According to Variety, Edge Of Tomorrow's Doug Liman has signed on to direct the film, which will potentially feature the characters of John Constantine, Swamp Thing (please let Swamp Thing be in it), Deadman, Zatanna, and Etrigan the Demon. The project would be part of the DC Cinematic Universe from Warner Bros and DC Entertainment.

Though Warner Bros currently has no comment, the story confirms that Scott Rudin is producing and Michael Gilio is writing the script. Sources also suggest that this means Liman will not be directing the X-Men universe's Gambit starring Channing Tatum as part of a "mutual split" on the part of the studio and the director. »

Justice League Dark Gets A New Director

20 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

WB has found a new director for Justice League Dark, find out who it is after the jump.

WB has announced that Doug Liman will be the new director of Justice League Dark. He is known for movies like Mr. & Mrs. Smith and Jumper. He previously worked with WB on Edge of Tomorrow.

The previous director that was lined up for the film was Guillermo del Toro, but he put the project aside as his line up filled up. This caused WB to seek a new director to take over the project. 

Justice League Dark is a darker squad of heroes that fight crime. The original line up of characters includes Det. John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Deadman, Zatanna and Etrigan the Demon. Though we are unsure if the studio might choose to change the team, similar to what happened with Suicide Squad. Michael Gilio is writing the script and it »

Doug Liman Takes Point On Justice League Dark, Reportedly No Longer Attached To Gambit

20 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman has agreed terms to helm Justice League Dark for Warner Bros. – at the expense of Gambit, it seems.

Injecting new life into the languishing superhero project, word of Liman’s appointment comes by way of Variety, revealing that this new interpretation of DC and Warner’s Dark Universe will be penned by Michael Gilio. It’s welcome news for fans of the cult supernatural property, though such a coup only portends trouble for the Channing Tatum-fronted Gambit spinoff, with sources close to Variety claiming that Liman has now departed the troubled X-Men spinoff.

Though 20th Century Fox offered no comment at the time of writing, that’s an amicable split that had been long in the cards, given that Liman has been quietly lining up additional projects beyond the mutant universe over the past few months, during which time Gambit was ordered to »

Newswire: Doug Liman drops Channing Tatum’s Gambit on his way to DC’s Dark Universe

20 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

In a move that seems especially appropriate for an adaptation about characters who frequently interact with the spookier side of DC comics, the long-in-the-works Justice League Dark movie has risen from its grave and taken on a new, more powerful form. As reported by Variety, the project is back on with Edge Of Tomorrow’s Doug Liman set to direct, and though Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment haven’t said anything official, the movie will reportedly revolve around classic DC heroes (or “heroes”) John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Deadman, Zatanna, and Etrigan. Variety is also referring to the film as Dark Universe instead of Justice League Dark, but it’s unclear how official that is.

For years, Guillermo Del Toro was working on a Justice League Dark movie, but like most of his projects, it eventually fizzled out. Then, just last month, DC officially announced an animated Justice League Dark movie »

Breaking News: Director Doug Liman Ditches Gambit Flick For Justice League Dark

20 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

If there's one Fox property that seems to constantly be getting the shaft, it's Gambit. It's gone through a couple directors, a delayed release, and rumors of losing its lead Channing Tatum (which proved to be false). But if you thought that would be the end of its problems, you'd be wrong.

In a report from THR, the outlet states that Gambit has officially lost director Doug Liman, who took on the project October 2015 after Rupert Wyatt dropped out. Without a doubt, the delay in release likely played a big role in this. It's never a good sign when a film's release date disappears, and it's even worse when it doesn't show up in a different spot down the line.

But it's not all, Variety near-simultaneously published that Liman has signed on to direct Dark Universe, a.k.a. Justice League Dark (the outlet also backs up claims from THR »

Justice League Dark Moves Forward with Director Doug Liman

21 hours ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

While the next few films in the DC movieverse are locked in, we were curious to find out what movies would be included in the next wave, and it looks like we’ll be getting a big screen adaptation of the darker side of the DC universe.

According to Variety, Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Edge of Tomorrow) has left Gambit for Fox and will instead be directing Justice League Dark, also referred to as Dark Universe, for Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment.

At one point, Guillermo del Toro was interested in directing, but THR is reporting that he is no longer involved with the project, while Scott Rudin is now onboard as a producer. Michael Gilio will write the screenplay.

With the Justice League Dark cast featuring John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Deadman, Zatanna, and Etrigan the Demon, who would you like to see fill these roles?

Doug Liman to Direct 'Justice League Dark' for Warner Bros.

Warner Bros. is continuing to explore other corners of the DC Universe beyond the core heroes such as Superman and Batman, this time putting the spotlight on its supernatural heroes. The studio is tapping Doug Liman to direct Justice League Dark, breathing new life into its supernatural adventure project. Dark was a fairly recent DC title that grouped together heroes such as John Constantine (who was the title character of a solo 2005 movie that starred Keanu Reeves), Deadman, Shade the Changing Man, Zatanna and Swamp Thing (who had his own Wes Craven-directed pic in 1982), among others.

Doug Liman to Direct ‘Dark Universe’ for DC, Warner Bros. (Exclusive)

Doug Liman is set to direct the Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment adaptation of “Dark Universe” — a.k.a., “Justice League Dark.”

Scott Rudin is producing. Michael Gileio is writing the script.

Warner Bros. had no comment.

While plot details are being kept under wraps, the story revolves around a dark Justice League team that consists of Det. John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Deadman, Zatanna and Etrigan the Demon.

The film is an ensemble focused which speaks to one of his early hits “Go”, which dealt with a similar ensemble. The film will play a major role in the new D.C. Cinematic Universe.

Constantine was played by Keanu Reeves in a 2005 movie, as well as by Matt Ryan in NBC series “Constantine,” which was canceled in 2015 after one season. Swamp Thing has also had his own movie, with Dick Durock playing the creature in Wes Craven’s 1982 film.

Swamp Thing Animation Test Emerges from Canceled Justice League Dark Movie

28 July 2016 8:15 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just three years ago, filmmaker Guillermo del Toro was prepping a live action adaptation of Justice League Dark, which at the time was entitled Dark Universe. After two years in development, the director eventually left the project, and we didn't hear much else about it until rumors swirled earlier this year that the studio is making an animated adaptation instead. That news was confirmed at Comic-Con, with the movie debuting this year, but today we have a new look at what may have been, if another director would have been involved.

Joseph Kahn, who has directed the feature films Torque and Detention, along with the controversial Power/Rangers short film last year, revealed on Twitter that he pitched his take on the project before it became an animated movie. He also shared his video of an eight-second animation test, which featured his version of Swamp Thing. Of course, we will »

Warner Bros. Pictures' animated feature "Batman: The Killing Joke" generated an impressive $3.8 million over its two-day theatrical run on Monday and Tuesday nights. The film garnered a $2,396 per site average, far above the $1,592 average that night of current box-office champ "Star Trek Beyond".

Warner Bros. distribution chief Jeff Goldstein calls it an "exceptional result for an 'alternate content' special event". The film was released digitally on Tuesday and will be launched via DVD and Blu-ray on August 2nd.

Following the film's success, the next WB Animation feature is that of "Justice League Dark," a new film focusing on the supernatural superheroes of the DC Universe including Zatanna, Etrigan the Demon, Swamp Thing, Constantine, Black Orchid and Boston Brand.

A sneak peek featurette on the film is out and can be seen below and confirms that Matt Ryan, who played John Constantine in NBC's live action "Constantine" series, reprises the role »
