HBO’s recent run with DC Comics’ Watchmen TV series may have left quite the favorable taste on their palette for more adult-centric mature comic series, as HBO Max has tasked J.J. Abrams and his lens flares of glory to produce numerous on- hour episodic drama series for the streaming platform.
Abrams production company Bad Robot will aim to bring three new series to the streaming platform. Among the IP mentioned is DC’s Justice League Dark. This of course based on the supergroup that takes on the more occult and supernatural evils that plague the DC Universe. The other two films include an original series called Duster and a film entitled Overlook. Overlook is a spin-off of Stephen King’s The Shining.
Now if this series on HBO Max is set to take the place of the long-planned and seemingly abandoned cinematic outing that would have taken place via New Line Cinema, or if this is teaser tester for maybe expanding audiences and priming us for something bigger is anyone’s guess.
In any case, it would seem John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Madame Xanadu, Deadman and possibly more will be making there way to a live-action debut to deal with all sorts of supernatural nasties.
