Guillermo del Toro no longer attached to direct Justice League Dark movie

Justice League Dark Guillermo del Toro

Insiders tell THR that Guillermo del Toro has exited the planned JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK movie. The site doesn't have any details on why he left, just that he's is no longer attached to direct. JLD is one of the DC Vertigo properties staying at Warner Bros., so the film isn't dead, however del Toro leaving is obviously a huge blow to the project.

For those not in the know, Justice League Dark is a superhero team featuring supernatural DC characters like John Constantine, Swamp Thing and Deadman. With how excited Guillermo del Toro seemed to be each time he talked about doing the movie, I do wonder if he is completely off of it, or will still help develop it as a producer. Since it's not like the film is ready to start shooting tomorrow, I suppose it is possible del Toro could return to direct. However, I have a feeling that if the movie is going to happen, he won't be the one behind the camera. Which director would you like to see replace del Toro on JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK?

Guillermo del Toro's CRIMSON PEAK opens on October 16, 2015, and PACIFIC RIM 2 is scheduled to be released on August 4, 2017.
