After years of the movie doing rounds on the internet and never coming out, we can now confirm that a Justice League Dark series is coming to HBO Max and it’s from the mind of J.J. Abrams. Knowing that he’s involved is going to get a lot of mixed opinions, especially after the mess that was Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, but the director’s involvement does mean that this will be treated as a big deal.
Variety confirmed that Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions will be developing the show, though they didn’t reveal anything about the plot or characters. We obviously want to see characters like Zatanna, Swamp Thing, and Constantine in this series but nothing has been confirmed, as of this writing. Kevin Reilly, the chief content officer of HBO Max, had a lot to say about this intriguing development below.
“What an amazing start to our association with the wildly imaginative Bad Robot team under J.J. and Katie [McGrath]. What could be better than an original J.J. idea and then Warner Bros. letting them loose on iconic I.P. from Stephen King and the DC Universe and to provide more must-have programming on HBO Max.”
Fans have been savoring for anything Justice League Dark-related for the longest time, ever since the movie by Guillermo del Toro was reported. That didn’t come into fruition and fans have been depressed ever since, though the animated movie of the same name proved to be quite popular. In fact, it’s sequel, Justice League Dark: Apokolips War has been billed as the finale of that animated universe, showing how important that name is.
No release date for HBO Max’s Justice League Dark has been announced.
