The long gestating “Justice League Dark” film has gone through various delays, delays that forced famed filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro to leave the project. It now seems despite no director being attached Warner Brothers is moving forward with the DC Comics adaptation and is looking to cast their group of oddball heroes.
“Justice League Dark” deals with characters with a supernatural bent and the group is traditional lead by chain-smoking occultist John Constantine. According to Latino Review the studio has their favourite for the role of the character, Colin Farrell.
The rest of the group includes Deadman, Swamp Thing, Zatanna, Etrigan the Demon and Madame Xanadu. The site claims that Monica Bellucci is the main choice for Madame Xanadu and Hellboy actor Ron Perlman is the frontrunner for Swamp Thing.
We’ll have to wait on confirmation from the studio to see if any of this report comes to fruition.
