JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK Live-Action Series From J.J. Abrams In The Works For HBO Max

We heard rumblings about this back in January, but it's now been officially announced that a live-action series based on characters from the Justice League Dark universe is in development for HBO Max...

Fans wondered if the recent partnership between J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot and WarnerMedia would result in any DC Comics projects, and it looks like we finally have our answer.

We heard about tentative plans for movie and TV projects based around the mystical heroes and villains of Justice League Dark back in January, and now the trades have confirmed that the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker director and his wife and Bad Robot partner, Katie McGrath, will head-up a JLD series for WarnerMedia's upcoming HBO Max streaming service.

We're not sure which characters will get the spotlight, but there was talk of a Zatanna solo movie a little over a year ago, so she's a decent possibility. We can probably also expect the likes of John Constantine, Dead Man, Etrigan and Swamp Thing to be strong contenders.

Bad Robot will also produce a 10-episode The Shining spinoff called Overlook, which will explore the untold, terrifying stories of the most famous haunted hotel in American fiction, and original drama Duster, which revolves around the life of a gutsy getaway driver for a growing crime syndicate who goes from awful to wildly, stupidly, dangerously awful.

What do you guys make of this news? Which characters do you hope to see the JLD series focus on? Let us know in the usual place.
