Espinosa or Johnstone to helm Justice League Dark?
Reports say that the directors are in the race to helm the movie based on a dark and less popular alternate universe Justice League team
Filmmakers Daniel Espinosa and Gerard Johnstone are reportedly in the race to helm the upcoming film Justice League Dark.
Espinosa is a Swedish filmmaker whose credits include Easy Money, Safe House and Child 44. He recently directed a horror sci-fi film called Life that reunited him with his Safe House actor Ryan Reynolds. The movie also starred Jake Gyllenhaal and Rebecca Ferguson.
On the other hand, Johnstone is a director from New Zealand. He only has one movie under his belt--the 2014 horror comedy Housebound. It premiered at the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival and revolved around a woman sentenced to house arrest in a haunted house.
Justice League Dark centers on a dark and less popular alternate universe Justice League team. The band consists of John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Deadman, Zatanna and Etrigan the Demon. It's developed as part of the DC Extended Universe, which started with Man of Steel that introduced Henry Cavill as Superman.
