    My year in review ended up strangely lining up with the content of the episode. Fatale, Conan. Weird. Also, I have to say I forgot to say that my recommendation for Dredd requires me to give credit to CatHalo, since I would never have watched it if not for his review on the podcast.

      Incidentally, that could be the reason I pretty much aped his review of the movie.

    Per Justice Leave: Dark writer…I vote for Neil Gaiman. His Dr. Who work alone makes him a good choice.

    While I think it would be awesome if Allan Moore came out of hiding and wrote Justice League Dark, I can think of a million reasons why that’s highly unlikely. Gonna go with foolsmask and hope it’s Neil Gaiman.

    Regarding Del Toro Dark Universe (which in the interview he says is the working title), he does mention Constantine but he puts more emphasis in Swamp Thing.
    Regarding the writer, if he is indeed someone known by the readers I don’t think Ennis would be a good choice, while he’s a great writer and great in horror and he had a great Hellblazer run, he appears to have a very no nonsense attitude regarding comics canon, characters history and mysticism, he can use those things but mostly as background to the themes he really wants to explore, nothing wrong with that, but not what we would want, I think.
    Good choices, I think Joe Hill is indeed a great choice, Morrison would be an even greater pic, he was wanting new venues to try, this might be it, he is great with mysticism and DC canon and crazy stuff in general. But I would bet it’s Gaiman, he is doing more screenwriting lately (I think), and he pretty much already wrote this story, what they are doing is pretty much “The Books of Magic” but without Tim Hunter, so that would be a no brainer.
