Another one of those smaller movies is Justice League Dark that was to be directed by Guillermo Del Toro; however, the film has hit a big snag. According to The Playlist, Del Toro has exited the movie. In the announcement there was no mention as to why Del Toro left the movie, but industry experts believed it could be the director’s busy schedule. He just recently finished filming a horror movie entitled Crimson Peak and will soon start work on Pacific Rim 2. There are also rumors of a Hellboy 3 in the works.
Justice League Dark would have been based on the comic that contains the more mystical superheroes from the DC universe. These included heroes like The Demon, Zatanna, Deadman and Swamp Thing.
It is unknown if DC and Warners will move forward with the movie or if it is dead in the water. In related news, Warners announced that a handful of Vertigo/DC Comics movies will be produced and released by its sister studio New Line Cinema.
