A new report suggests Warner Bros. is looking to further expand on the darker side of DC. According to insider Daniel Richtman, a live-action Deadman project is in the works for HBO Max.
Created by Arnold Drake and Carmine Infantino in 1967, Deadman made his debut in Strange Adventures #205. A former circus trapeze artist, Boston Brand performed under the stage name Deadman. After he was murdered, his spirit was given the ability to possess the living in order to search for his killer and find justice. The character has appeared in several teams, including the Justice League and Justice League Dark.
Deadman is one of several projects in the works at HBO Max. Given the subject matter, it seems likely the project will be produced by J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions, which is already developing a Constantine series and Zatanna film.
Richtman did not reveal any additional information about the project beyond it being in the works. As of now, no creative team or talent is attached to the project.
