Is that Justice League Dark news that we smell?
Yes it is. While Doug Liman has been promoting his new film, the Wall starring John Cena and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, he let out some of his thought process while he is working on Justice League Dark.
Here are his words from an interview with Collider…
“I have a really amazing take on it, that is in keeping with my approach to superheroes. Jason Bourne is a superhero, of sorts. Aaron Taylor-Johnson and John Cena, in The Wall, are superheroes. They’re very grounded, but the amount of training and stuff that soldiers bring to the field, they’re like Iron Man. If they open up another pouch, they’ve got another thing. It’s amazing, how resourceful they are and how much stuff they bring into the field. They’re like superheroes. So, I’m really excited, with Justice League Dark, to actually look at what it’s like, if I actually tackle a real superhero, but it’s not gonna look that different from my other superheroes.”
Interesting, but afterwards when they asked him about a timetable he didn’t answer…
“I have to have a passionate connection to my films, which I do with Justice League Dark,” Liman said. “I have a way into the story that’s personal, the way I have a connection to The Wall. Not that I’ve ever been a soldier or been in the field, but the level of perseverance and the fact that Aaron Taylor-Johnson and John Cena just keep picking themselves up when all seems lost, I feel a connection to that. I feel like I have a little understanding of that because, in my own way, I’ve had moments of despair and that all is lost, and I’ve picked myself back up. I feel a real connection to Justice League Dark.”
Well, we are glad that you are feeling connected to this film, and we are excited to see where you take the style and horror elements.
