Warner Bros. is reportedly moving ahead with the Justice League Dark movie, also known as Dark Universe. Guillermo del Toro will no longer direct the movie, but is still aboard to produce the DC Comics adaptation.
According to The Tracking Board, Producer Scott Rudin (best known for The Social Network and No Country for Old Men) will join del Toro…
“Sources confirm that Rudin is moving quickly on this one, making updates to the script and approaching directors. The project is now a priority for Warner Bros., with our sources also reporting that the studio is looking to shoot the superhero team-up film in 2016,”
The site also claims that the “group established in Dark Universe will separately co-exist with the main Justice League team, much like how Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy operate individually from the Avengers. Though, the plan is to eventually bridge the worlds and plant Dark Universe members in other DC titles.”
So expect to see Dark Universe find a director soon to begin its production next year.
