It’s been a while since we heard anything on DC Films’ Justice League Dark. With the movie struggling to lock down a director, screenwriter Gerard Johnstone was hired to work on the script. Now, a new rumor suggests that the film will feature a fan-favorite group from DC Comics lore.
According to That Hashtag Show, a recent draft shows a visit to the Oblivion Bar, a pocket dimension place reserved for DC characters with magical abilities. The bar is run by Eddie Deacon.
But what’s more interesting is that the draft consists of a cameo from the Shadowpact, another supernatural team. The lineup in the script consists of Detective Chimp, Doctor Fate, Black Orchid, Pandora, and Phantom Stranger. These are all favorites among DC fans, and seeing them in live action would surely be exciting.
Unfortunately, however, it sounds like the Shadowpact’s role is simply a cameo. Don’t expect them to interact with John Constantine and his team (which includes Swamp Thing and Zatanna). It’s just a quick fan-service moment. And, again, this is just the current draft, and it can easily be changed or removed in the future. We’ll just have to wait and see.
Stay tuned for more as we have it.
