The Demon Etrigan is among the rumored lineup for the J.J. Abrams HBO Max Justice League Dark series that is coming to the streaming service.
Earlier saw Warner Bros. announce three new shows for HBO Max from J.J. Abrams and his production company, Bad Robot, with Justice League Dark; a series inspired by Stephen King's The Shining with Overlook, and an original series, Duster.
While nothing has been confirmed as of yet for Justice League Dark, according to YouTuber Grace Randolph, the series features a current lineup of (subject to change): Constantine, Zatanna, Deadman, Jason Blood aka The Demon Etrigan, and Swamp Thing.
It's said the series will be of a really high budget, around $100 million, which will make it look like a movie, but better, as it's a longer series.
It's claimed J.J. Abrams also wants all-new actors in the roles, which means nothing from the DCEU Swamp Thing series will carry over, and unfortunately, it also means fan-favorite Matt Ryan will not be playing Constantine.
Grace says Abrams does want named-talent for at least a few roles and suggests Constantine and Zatanna may be played by well-known actors.
It's also pointed out that HBO Max has a benefit over Disney Plus in that HBO Max can do more serious, darker and adult shows, while Disney Plus is relegated to family-friendly entertainment.
Justice League Dark will be a big-budget series on HBO Max
Regarding the possibility of Keanu Reeves playing Constantine, Grace notes that Reeves is pretty busy with The Matrix 4 and John Wick 4, but she says Keanu Reeves could always be a possibility for Constantine if the show is good enough and if WB forks over enough cash.
While at Comic-Con last Summer, DC insiders also filled me in that Abrams is going to be involved with a reboot of Superman and Green Lantern as well as the DCEU. Insiders filled me in that Abrams and The Batman director Matt Reeves are best buds, with me also told that Abrams' producer wife Katie McGrath had a hand in getting new WB CEO Ann Sarnoff the job.
Grace Randolph also adds in her video that McGrath wouldn't work at Warner Bros. with Kevin Tsujihara working there, which saw Tsujihara eventually step down over alleged inappropriate relations with an actoress.
