Pitched by Guillermo del Toro and once placed to be directed by him as well, Justice League Dark is an adaptation of the DC Comics group of the same name that has the likes of John Constantine, Zatanna, Deadman, and Swamp Thing among its ranks. del Toro is no longer attached to direct, but he will still serve as producer of the movie alongside Scott Rudin. When the film will be released and who's starring in it has yet to be decided, but Liman's presence means he is no longer directing the Gambit spin-off film for 20th Century Fox's X-Men Movies universe.
