Gregg Miller posed the question "Would you  ever do "Justice League Dark" on TV or Netflix?".

"Right now the plans are to make it a feature. We are deep in the screenplay writing phase. I think we see eye to eye (Warners and DC and myself) on what the movie is and I think it will serve really well as a movie."

He went on to praise the characters and express how much joy he is having with the characters such as Constantine and Swamp-Thing. When asked about the TV universe and Constantine, he went on to say...

"The ideal form is to develop the movie. The only thing I made clear to them (the Constantine TV show) is that the TV series will not affect the movie and they said that's okay. Now if we see the TV series and we can mesh with it or cast the same actor depending on where the movie is going then I would be happy to consider (meshing with the show)."

He then went on to say...

"We came in and I tried 2 or 3 different structures for the screenplay. I wrote a 75 page template for the universe... that takes a year... We needed to create a new story. Then we need to go to a screenplay writer. One draft takes between 6 and 8 months. It really takes a while."

@SuperCat, probably until after Justice League comes out.

Sipprelle - 7/28/2014, 6:30 PM
Well though it seems fairly far away, it does look like they're getting a decent amount of traction on it. Hopefully he'll be able to get on it in the near future.
Sipprelle - 7/28/2014, 6:31 PM
@ALegendaryPanda I think it'll probably be 18 ish, but would you rather never get it at all?
SuperCat - 7/28/2014, 6:32 PM
@ TheMexicanSuperman

waiting for this movie to come out...

I wish DC would confirm some of these movies. All the other studios are grabbing release dates and green lighting movies at a fever pitch, and WB stays mum. I understand Green Lantern flopping is making them cautious, but CBMs are huge right now, jump in. Would love to see a JL Dark film by del Toro. Will be interesting to see how deep into the mythos the Constantine series goes. Already saw Dr Fate's helmet. Now mentioning Swampy at Con with promotional phone number. Del Toro better hurry up before his movie is old news.

Cool! Bring it Del Toro!!

Now I wonder if the Flash from the upcoming Justice Leauge movie will be the same from the TV show...
