DARK UNIVERSE Director Doug Liman Says He Will "Turn The Comic Book Genre On Its Head"

Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow) will be helming WB and DC Films' Justice League Dark Dark Universe, and according to the director, he plans to turn the comic book movie genre on its head..

A few months ago, it was announced that Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman would be helming Justice League Dark, which is now officially titled Dark Universe. Liman will be working off a script written by Guillermo del Toro, the film's original director, and it's been confirmed that the project will be a part of the current DC Films Universe. While talking to IGN, Liman spoke about his approach to the film and how he plans to bring something new to the comic book movie genre.

"Yeah, I mean first of all, I love those characters, and I love Warner Bros., and I love [producer] Scott Rudin, and it’s -- and you know, I get asked to come in and do things that are “unconventional.” If people want conventional, they don’t come to me. It’s why doing Invisible was like right up my alley -- because how can you be conventional when there aren’t even conventions that exist? And so you know when Warner Bros. wants to sort of turn the comic book genre on its head, they call me."

It sounds like Liman is excited for the film and plans to give fans something new. The Justice League Dark property is certainly unique on its own, but with Liman directing and Guillermo del Toro and Scott Rudin attached to the movieg as producers, there's no telling what we can expect when Dark Universe hits theaters.
