Guillermo Del Toro Claims ‘Justice League Dark’ Movie Is Still Happening

jldark9

In the month or so that follows San Diego Comic-Con, things can get a little hazy. Stories can fall away, and there's some serious catching up that comes after the fervor and madness.

Case in point: When Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment released its extremely vague movie schedule last week, I speculated that one of the dozen or so movies set for release could be a Justice League Dark movie directed (or at least produced) by Guillermo Del Toro. It's a project del Toro has been talking about for a couple years. Now it seems like all but a done deal, if Del Toro's Comic-Con interview with IGN is much of an indication.

Gordon Ramsay In Limbo: Comics Alliance Reviews The ‘Constantine’ Television Pilot

Screen-Shot-2014-08-05-at-8.53.44-PM

Constantine is not modelled on the disappointing 2005 Keanu Reeves movie, also called Constantine. Nor is it an adaptation of DC Comics' current superhero comic book, Constantine, set in the rebooted New 52 DC Universe. The TV show very clearly goes back to the source material, the 1980s DC/later-Vertigo comic series Hellblazer, written initially by Jamie Delano and based on the character John Constantine created by Alan Moore, Steve Bissette, and John Ridgway in the pages of Swamp Thing. The leading man looks just as he does in the comics, with his familiar trenchoat and tie, and he acts broadly the same way too. Just as crucially, his backstory draws heavily from Delano's Hellblazer run. This Constantine is riddled with guilt and fearful for his soul because he failed to save a girl named Astra in Newcastle from the demon Nergal.

This means that the the TV adaptation of the comic is actually more faithful to the source material than the current version of the comic -- but only in broad strokes. In actual execution, this TV show is not the mature affair that the Vertigo comic offered. This is not a cable television supernatural show. This is more like... a Supernatural show.

140509_2781062_Constantine_Official_Trailer

The producers of NBC's new series Constantine were very chatty at the Television Critics Association meeting this weekend about the series, on topics ranging from lead actress Lucy Griffith's departure from the series to whether the show will explore the magical corners of the DC Universe.

Blastr reported that Executive Producer David S. Goyer says that there's the distinct possibility that lots of DC's occult characters will show up on the show, while Variety quoted him as saying the show won't explore Constantine's bisexuality any time soon. Below are some highlights from the different reports.

Familiar Helmet In ‘Constantine’ Trailer Teases Appearance Of Another DC Comics Magic Man [Video]

Untitled-1

Well, I've got good news and bad news.

I'll start with the bad: The new trailer for NBC's new Constantine TV series confirms that the pronunciation of the lead character's name will be the movie version (Kon-stan-teen) instead of the comics version (Kon-stan-tyne). Now the good news: It looks like Dr. Fate is going to be in it somehow, which means this is going to be a full-on DC Comics TV show.
