It's been a while since there has been an update on the Justice League Dark movie, but at Comic-Con, Guillermo del Toro offers further details, which also includes mention of the Sandman film.

Super Hero Hype spoke with Guillermo del Toro who offered that the Justice League Dark movie will not connect to the rest of the DC movie universe, which includes Batman Vs. Superman and Justice League -- at least at first.

Guillermo del Toro says WB is giving him breathing room, and if the Dark Universe movies are a success, WB will eventually connect them to the Batman and Superman movies. He also mentions Sandman will initially be separate as well.

“I’m still working on it. Sandman doesn’t figure in the Dark Universe. We have Deadman, we have the Demon, we have Swamp Thing, we have Zatana, we have Constantine, but DC and Warners have been very clear that they are trying to keep those properties separate; so when the time comes they can unite them, once they know they’re quantifiable. Batman, Superman, Green Lantern… everyone eventually will come together. Right now, they’re allowing us independence.”  

Del Toro also stated his Justice League Dark will have no connection with the NBC Constantine TV series.

No, I had that conversation when the Constantine show was pitched. I said, ‘Do I have to have continuity with that?’ and they said, ‘No, feel free to continue the way you’re going.'
