Justice League Dark May Target Bullseye When Casting Constantine!

By: Adam Basciano When I last reported on Justice League Dark, or Dark Universe, or whatever they end up calling it, we learned that  producer Scott Rudin had come onboard the project, and was tweaking the script by Guillermo Del Toro, to get ready for filming in 2016.  Meanwhile, a search for a director and […]
