Doug Liman Leaves Justice League Dark with New Director in the Running


Just days after Doug Liman spoke on his idea for Justice League Dark, it’s being reported that he has now left the project to concentrate more on his current directing job Chaos Walking

According to Variety, Doug Liman was already signed up to direct Chaos Walking before he signed on to Justice League Dark, making it a schedule conflict, similar to the Tom Hardy situation with The Revenant and Suicide Squad.

After hearing how passionate he sounded with working on the film it’s certainly discouraging, especially if it’s all just a scheduling conflict.

Warner Bros. has made no comment on the situation, but according to The Hollywood Reporter’s Borys Kit, Stephen King’s It director Andy Muschietti is in the running to be the new director.

With the recent trailers for the new adaptation of Stephen King’s novel IT being highly praised it wouldn’t be a bad way to go, just as long as he feels as passionate as Doug Liman felt.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me
