The original Justice League Dark team, consists of John Constantine, Madame Xanadu, Deadman, Shade, the Changing Man and Zatanna.
Del Toro whose best known for films such as Blade II, Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy, Hellboy II: The Golden Army and The Hobbit series, has been working on the screenplay for Dark Universe for over a year now and has been campaigning for it ever since.
