Freelance illustrator and concept artist Houston Sharp took to Instagram to show of some amazing designs he created for Doug Liman’s Justice League Dark movie. Unfortunately, Liman has since departed the film but the designs of Swamp Thing, Constantine and Klarion give us a glimpse of what could have been.
The jaw-dropping art by Sharp comes as no surprise as he has worked with major brands throughout his career showcasing concept art for film, games and print. Some of his past projects include Wonder Woman, Rampage, Xmen: Dark Phoenix, and Wonder Woman 1984.
Getting back to Justice League Dark, when Liman first left the film he said it was due to a “scheduling nightmare” but just recently in speaking with Cinema Blend, Liman admitted that the big reason for his departure was over the script.
Getting Justice League Dark to the big screen has been quite a challenge. Rumors had Guillermo del Toro attached way back in 2012 and in 2013 the famed director confirmed his involvement. In April 2015 del Toro handed in his script revisions and it sat in development. Liman entered in 2016 to direct with del Toro and Scott Rudin producing the film.
Finally, in January 2020 we reported that Warner Media and Bad Robot are working to put together a Justice League Dark universe for both film and TV.
Here’s hoping that the final product looks half as good as Sharp’s concept art. Stay tuned to Horror News Network for the latest on Justice League Dark.
