Promising Young Woman writer/director Emerald Fennell has been tapped by Warner Bros. to write a live-action Zatanna movie for the DCEU.
A live-action Zatanna movie is being written by Promising Young Woman writer/director Emerald Fennell for the DCEU. Following the success of the Wonder Woman films and a positive critical response to 2020’s Birds of Prey, the Zatanna project would put another female superhero in the franchise’s spotlight. Interest in the core DCEU has spiked since the release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, though it’s unclear how exactly the new movie will connect to past entries.
In the comics, Zatanna is a magician – an incredibly powerful sorceress who had worked at different times with the Justice League and Justice League Dark. She’s long been a popular hero among fans, frequently appearing in DC’s various animated series in films. Zatanna’s comics storylines have often involved Batman and John Constantine, among other characters throughout the franchise. She has previously been played in live-action by Serinda Swan on Smallville.
Now, it looks like Zatanna will be getting her very own feature film in the DCEU from DC Films and J.J. Abrams’s Bad Robot Productions. Per Variety, Emerald Fennell will write the script for Zatanna, following her rapid Hollywood ascendance after the massive critical and popular success of Promising Young Woman. No casting news or release date plans have been announced for Zatanna at this time.
