Guillermo del Toro’s Justice League Dark film featuring the more supernatural characters of the DC Universe is all set on his end as the director is finished with the script and has handed it in to WB.
Now it’s a waiting game.
Guillermo del Toro attended a press event for his FX series, The Strain, where he offered an update on Justice League Dark to IGN.
“We turned in our [script] revision, and it all depends on the calendar, you know?” del Toro offered earlier today. “If I can do it, I would love to do it. And I think the screenplay and the characters are very solid.”
The report goes on to mention that del Toro stated that if he is unable to direct Justice League Dark due to other commitments and timing, that “somebody will do it.” It’s reported del Toro said it’s not easy to commit to directing considering the amount of time it takes to direct a movie and especially with Justice League Dark being a part of a shared DC movie universe.
“You cannot say, ‘Yeah, I’ll do it after I do this,’ or ‘I have the first season of The Strain,” said del Toro. “[Justice League Dark] needs to fall into the plan of the DC Universe.”
