HBO Max continues to expand its future catalog of series based on characters from DC Comics, this time, with Madame Xanadu, the immortal sorceress expert in magic and the mystical arts and who is directly related to the Justice League Dark. So has shared the medium Variety, announcing the first details of a series that for now has neither a confirmed cast nor an approximate release date.
HBO Max bets heavily on DC
Thus, after the agreement between Warner Bros. Y Bad Robot to create series exclusively for HBO Max, it has already been confirmed that Angela Robinson (Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, True Blood) will be the series’ lead writer and showrunner; in turn, she will act as executive producer alongside J.J. Abrams Y Ben Stephenson. The series will be a drama with one-hour episodes, although at the moment no more information about the adaptation has emerged.
Madame Xanadu, although he is not one of the most popular or famous characters in DC, he does have a prominent role in the side of DC more dedicated to magic and mystical powers and has been part of the Justice League Dark. Madame Xanadu, whose real name is Nimue Inwudu, has its origin in the fall of Atlantis, and she and her sisters Morgaine and Vivienne are direct descendants of the survivors of that kingdom, who evolved into a race of humans with magical abilities.
Recall that the character of Madame Xanadu has already had a recent live action adaptation in the television series Swamp Thing 2019. However, and if the project comes to fruition, Madame Xanadu will join the extensive catalog of productions that DC prepares for HBO Max together with Justice League Dark, Green Lantern Corps, John Constantine, Peacemaker O Gotham Central, among other.
