There has been numerous rumours regarding casting the the “Justice League Dark” project at Warners Bros. Pictures this week. With Colin Farrell, Ron Perlman, Ewan McGregor and Monica Bellucci all inked to roles on the DC Comics adaptation.
The latest name linked to the property was Australian Actor Ben Mendelsohn, who is rumored for the role of chief antagonist Anton Arcane.
“Justice League Dark” deals with characters with a supernatural bent and features a group of heroes that include John Constantine, Deadman, Swamp Thing, Zatanna, Etrigan the Demon and Madame Xanadu.
JoBlo has now released shortlist of potential directors for the project according to their sources. Guillermo del Toro was previously attached for a long tim, having dropped out of directing the project earlier this year. Warners is now looking more left-field with some of their choices it would seem. Amongst the front runners are Fede Alvarez (“Evil Dead”), and the directing team of Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado (“Big Bad Wolves”).
Take all this as conjecture and rumor for now with no official announcements by the studio so far.
