ZATANNA Movie Also Scrapped At HBO Max; J.J. Abrams Trying To Find A Home For That And CONSTANTINE

We've already heard that Warner Bros. has pulled the plug on HBO Max's Constantine, but it sounds like Zatanna can now join the Hellblazer on the scrap pile. Find more details on that after the jump...

It's become apparent that some big changes are currently taking place at Warner Bros., and that's proving to be good and bad news for the DC Extended Universe. While all signs point to Henry Cavill returning as Superman, for example, there are a number of exciting projects that now look set to fall by the wayside.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Emerald Fennell's Zatanna movie is among them.

That had been in the works for HBO Max, though the second Batgirl was cancelled (due to the new Warner Bros. Discovery regime wanting to move away from movies produced for streaming), we did wonder if this might be the case. 

J.J. Abrams was producing that and the Constantine project starring Ṣọpẹ Dìrísù with an eye to build to a Justice League Dark crossover. Apparently, the prolific filmmaker is looking to shop those to other streamers, so HBO Max clearly has no place for them at this point in time. 

Whether another streaming platform will want them remains to be seen, but these are two high-profile DC Comics adaptations that can likely be added to the list of those to never happen. 

The trade notes that the hunt for the DCEU's own Kevin Feige has been an "utter failure," with current executive Michael De Luca now the likeliest candidate to take charge of what comes next. He and Pamela Adby are said to be keen to get a number of movies and TV shows in development, taking what sounds like a "throw it at the wall and see what sticks" approach. 

Alas, Zatanna won't be among them. 

The character has been portrayed on screen before, but not in her own movie. However, now that Constantine 2 is in the works with Keanu Reeves reprising the role, perhaps a new version of the hero could be introduced there instead.
