Another day, another DC movie that Warner Bros. apparently has in development.
Deadline has published an article detailing the recent increase in female-led superhero movies and TV shows, including those by DC. In the article, it is mentioned that there is “talk” of a movie starring Zatanna, in addition to Batgirl, Supergirl, and more. No other details, including a screenwriter or director, are known at this time.
Zatanna is one of the most prominent magical characters in the DC Universe. She has been a frequent face in animated projects, but besides Smallville, she has never been portrayed in live action. She was said to be part of the Justice League Dark movie, which is being rewritten again. We haven’t had an update on that film in a while, and it’s unclear when or if it will move forward. So, in the meantime, DC might be giving Zatanna her own movie.
Hopefully, we’ll learn more about this project soon. Stay tuned.
