tons depends on who they choose for the role....but definitely exciting. I hope they stick to classic zatanna as we know her rather than reinventing her costume and story

Sorry to hear you’re traumatized. But the cure for a bad experience is a good experience.

There are plenty of lovely examples of fishnets done right.

Yes, please. This should be fun. Perhaps we can help @doog overcome his trauma? Think of it as a humanitarian effort.

Jennifer Connelly, back in the day. I'm not very familiar with today's youngsters.

@Siggy Good call. Around the time of ‘Dark City’, she would have been ideal.

Liv Tyler in the mid-90’s would have been great.

Rosario Dawson would be a less conventional choice, but I think she would be awesome.

Well essentially my two favorite charactrrs/storylines/avenues of investment in my collection are producing movies and or series. New gods movie is out there happening along with a Zatanna movie and a Dark Justice streaming series. Life is good

It's gonna be tricky, doing that backwards talk through the whole movie. Especially since, in comic books you can always figure out what she said. We won't have that luxury during a movie.

Maybe they can do it a little more urban, or whatever, like Zatanna in Batman Damned? Where she does magic, but doesn't speak the spells very often, maybe only for the big ones? And she does a lot of slight-of-hand type stuff, too, as part of her whole persona? That might be cool. I like the idea of a more street-wise Zatanna than how she is usually depicted.

That's actually just a simple plot device....she has to find the lost chest of Ungur, which contains a secret chant that will return her ability to speak backwards and cast spells doing so...
I did like the Batman Damned take on her, it seemed to work well too.
I was thinking what story or plot you might use for a full length Zatanna feature and I think the best story she has is her original odyssey to find her father Zatarra .
if that does become a reality watch out for those various books to become sought after....
Had DC thought of it years ago, it would have made a great way to introduce multiple characters like the members of the Justice league....

so besides the obvious hawkman 4 what books do you guys see taking the biggest piece of the action here?

I went shopping online looking around for the books I would think will grow from this news....I shopped for these comics

Supergirl 7 Zatanna cover with supergirl
Justice league of America 51 She tells her story of her search for her father
Green Lantern 42 -she searches for her father
Atom 19 -first cover appearance and supposedly 2nd appearance although its not
Flash 198 Early story starring Zatanna


For all of these books I found nothing above VG grade for sale except on ebay
For MCS, Supergirl 7 was only vg and below as was green lantern 42 and flash 198


JLA 51, and atom 19 are non-existent there.

visit MCS and do a search on the word Zatanna, then check how much of it shows...out. People are already all over this

I believe that JLA 51 is also the first SA appearance of Zatara, making my personal second choice for growth.

He appears in Hawkman 4 albeit a flashback as a cameo and not what I would consider an appearance

Also appears in Green Lantern 42, also as a flashback

Did some fast legwork here in my Zatanna corner and it looks like this to me


Detective 379 Zatara appears in the backup Elongated man story
September 1968

Justice league of America 51 Appears as central character in Zatannas search story.....
December 13, 1966



Definitely supports the idea Zatara's first silver age appearance is Justice League of America 51

@Darkseid_of_town Interesting and good to know! I think it also helps that it is the first real Zatanna cover and a good one at that.

Collector Darkseid_of_town private msg quote post Address this user
eh well Atom 19 from July 65 she is only a floating head on the cover....

justice League of America 51 December 13, 1966 is her first full, true cover and perhaps one of her best ever...I hoard copies of the book myself

@Darkseid_of_town Yeah, I knew of Atom 19, but never really cared for the cover. Completely agree with respect to JLA 51 though.

@Darkseid_of_town Consider getting Justice League Dark (volume 1) #29.

It's the issue where Zatanna becomes the owner of the House of Mystery (which is why John Constantine had quit the team). Between it being a modern key, and a low profile one, her becoming owner might be something they will use in the film. Which makes it a low-risk investment at this time.

and people also forget not only is Zatanna getting a film, but Dark justice is also getting a series done by Bad robot for HBO streaming ..which is another place that book might become key in the plot
