During a chat with director Doug Liman today about his new VR series Invisible (look for more on that soon), we asked the Bourne Identity and Edge of Tomorrow filmmaker about his involvement with Dark Universe, the long-planned feature film adaptation of DC Comics’ Justice League Dark.
Here’s what Liman had to say to us about that supernatural superhero flick and the proposed Edge of Tomorrow 2:
IGN: Justice League Dark/Dark Universe — are you excited about working on that?
Doug Liman: Yeah, I mean first of all, I love those characters, and I love Warner Bros., and I love
Scott Rudin, and it’s — and you know, I get asked to come in and do things that are “unconventional.” If people want conventional, they don’t come to me. It’s why doing Invisible was like right up my alley — because how can you be conventional when there aren’t even conventions that exist? And so you know when Warner Bros. wants to sort of turn the comic book genre on its head, they call me.
