Warner Bros. has been developing DC’s Justice League Dark for several years now, with IT director Andy Muschietti’s name recently coming up in the conversation. Previously, Doug Liman was attached. Before him, Guillermo del Toro was at the helm.
During a Reddit AMA this week, Del Toro touched upon what almost was.
“It’s a WB property, I am not sure I can comment [on the project],” he noted. “Suffice to say that [Etrigan the] Demon or Swamp Thing mean to me what Batman and Superman mean to most mortals – perhaps even more. [Swamp Thing]/Abigal [Arcane] love [story] was a great source of inspiration for me.”
Justice League Dark, like Suicide Squad, is set to embark DC villains on a hero’s journey.
At this time, Del Toro is no longer attached in any capacity.
