Doug Liman has had his share of successes. Yet despite all that, he hasn’t quite managed to follow through with a comic book movie. He was attached to the still-in-development Gambit movie a few years back, and when he left, he did so to jump onto Justice League Dark, which is another long-in-development film that has yet to gain some traction.
What’s more, Warner Bros. and DC have been through the wringer as of late, and while we still don’t quite know what’s on the horizon, Justice League Dark still seems to be a possibility, based on a recently-revealed slate at last year’s Comic-Con Experience.
Given that, and the recent regime change to the more horror-experience Walter Hamada, Screen Rant asked Liman if he’d be more open to stepping back into the film.
“I would be open to it. I have a very kind of contrarian approach to how I make things and I don’t want to do them the way other people have done them. You know, Impulse is an original take on superpower as you can imagine and still be satisfying. Because obviously there’s some things – you can be original and artsy and not… Part of the reason cliches exist is because they’re satisfying to the audience so my challenge as a filmmaker has always been to do something that’s really original and still totally satisfying on a big commercial level, which I feel we’ve done with Impulse and I’d be really interested in doing that within the DC world if the right piece of material comes along.”
Well, if there was one film that would give the studio the opportunity to turn a genre on its head, it’s Justice League Dark. However, with films like Live Die Repeat and Repeat potentially on the horizon, is Justice League Dark something that’s really in the cards for him in the near future? And would fans even want him to take that on when he could work on something original?
