Doug Liman Second Director To Leave Justice League Dark

Warner Bros. has the worst luck with directors, don't they.

Doug Liman is the second director to exit Justice League Dark, after Guillermo del Toro left in 2015. His departure is due to a scheduling conflict to direct Lionsgate's Chaos Walking, which was recently greenlit. Warner Bros. is already meeting with other directors according to reports and just who will exit the movie next is yet to be seen.

Liman previously was on board to direct Gambit but left in August 2016. He's the second director to leave that project as well, as Rupert Wyatt left in September 2015. Marvel and DC both have their fair share of director issues as 2016 saw directors Seth Grahame-Smith and Rick Famuyiwa both leave The Flash. At this rate, studios might want to wait until the day a film is released to announce the director to be sure they're working on the film.

Dark Universe revolves around a dark Justice League team that consists of John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Deadman, Zatanna, and Etrigan the Demon. The film will play a major role in the new D.C. Cinematic Universe.
