Report: Bad Robot Will Develop Justice League Dark For Film and TV

Nearly a decade ago, DC Comics brought most of its main supernatural characters together in a Justice League Dark series. And for almost as long, Warner Bros. has been attempting to bring Justice League Dark to the big screen. However, not even director Guillermo del Toro was able to make that happen. But now, Deadline is reporting that J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot is actively developing ideas for films and TV shows based on the Justice League Dark characters.

According to Deadline, this is a result of Abrams’ recent multi-year development deal with Warner Bros. Media. It also notes that none of the specific characters have been chosen yet. Instead, Bad Robot’s Hannah Minghella and Ben Stephenson “will soon be taking meetings with talent reps and their writing clients on which characters will get their own projects.”

In the DC Universe, the Justice League Dark includes John Constantine, Zatanna, Swamp Thing, Madame Xanadu, Deadman, and more. Both Swamp Thing and Constantine have had TV and film adaptations before. However, the most recent Constantine and Swamp Thing shows were cancelled after their respective first seasons.
