Doctor Strange seems is already set to have an antithesis hailing from the DCU via Justice League Dark . From the sound of things, director Doug Liman who is set to bring the supernatural comic team to life boasts that his take on the DCU heroes will turn the convention of the comic-themed movie on its head.
Yeah, I mean first of all, I love those characters, and I love Warner Bros., and I love [producer] Scott Rudin, and it’s — and you know, I get asked to come in and do things that are “unconventional.” If people want conventional, they don’t come to me. It’s why doing Invisible was like right up my alley — because how can you be conventional when there aren’t even conventions that exist? And so you know when Warner Bros. wants to sort of turn the comic book genre on its head, they call me
Which frankly is what I personally feel DC needs to set themselves apart about now.
I haven’t done a comic book film, and that’s — am I going to do it in a new way that’s unlike what anyone else has ever done, and come up with a couple of rules for myself of what we’re not going to do that other people do.
