With Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker director J.J. Abrams developing a Justice League Dark show for HBO Max, fans have been speculating how much he'll be involved in the DCEU in the future. Last seen in Smallville, one of the characters rumored to be brought back into live-action is Zatanna, and it looks like there's a frontrunner for the part.

According to The Cultured Nerd, their sources confirmed that Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke is the frontrunner for the role of Zatanna Zatara on HBO Max. The outlet pointed out that it's not yet a done deal, but Clarke is the main actress in talks for the role.

The talks are far enough that the outlet claims a concept art with Clarke as the character has already been worked on.

Zatanna Zatara is descended from a race of mystical beings, Homo Magi. She is an associate and ex-lover of John Constantine, she also frequently finds herself in the Justice League Dark line-up and sometimes works with the main Justice League. Aside from Constantine, the outlet says Zatanna may eventually cross paths with Deadman and Etrigan on the HBO Max series.

For now, it is currently unknown if Zatanna will have her own solo standalone film or series on the streaming service but it would be exciting to see the character return to live-action since actress Serinda Swan played the part on Smallville.

Best known for playing Daenerys Targaryen on Game of Thrones, Clarke also took on the role of a young Sarah Connor in Terminator Genisys. She was also featured in Solo: A Star Wars Story as Qi'ra, so it's likely that the DC part will be in good hands.

As always, there's no official word just yet so it's best to take this rumor with a grain of salt.
