Last month, we reported that Warner Bros.' long-gestating Justice League Dark, a.k.a. Dark Universe, is finally moving forward, with Scott Rudin coming aboard to produce alongside Guillermo del Toro. While the studio still doesn't have a director in place, after Guillermo del Toro backed out this past summer, they hope to shoot Justice League Dark at some point in 2016. Guillermo del Toro revealed last year that his script will feature DC Comics characters such as John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Deadman, Shade, Madame Xanadu, Etrigan The Demon and Zatanna. According to a new report from Latino Review, the studio is eyeing Colin Farrell to play John Constantine.
Colin Farrell, who is currently filming Warner Bros' Harry Potter prequel Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, is considered the front runner to play John Constantine, but Ewan McGregor is also in the mix for this role. The report claims that whichever actor doesn't land that role, could be cast as Jason Blood, the human version of Etrigan the Demon. The site also claims that Monica Bellucci is the top choice to play Madame Xanadu, and that Ron Perlman is being eyed to play Swamp Thing.Read More
