Any news from this front catches my eye, though I feel that this movie is probably going to happen before we see an actual Justice League movie, though I wont hold out hopes that this gets made. Yet even just Guillermo Del Toro talking, speculating, ranting, whatever about Dark Universe is enough to get me pumped up that it could happen. On the bright-side, most comic properties that can set themselves in the semi-horror category, seemingly do well. Here’s what Del Toro had to say in an interview with Total Film:
“I am going to be presenting my storyline to DC and Warners of where I want to take this universe. We do have a writer, but until that is firmed up, I have to keep it a secret. I hope it happens,” he said.
“It’s going really really well. It’s like meeting old friends. I grew up with Demon Etrigan, with Swamp Thing, with Deadman, so these are characters that are near and dear to my heart.”
“I’d love to use the origins that are proper to each character. I love the idea of Jason Blood as a paladin and a knight…. I love the entire Constantine mythology, the Dead Man mythology, the Alex Holland Swamp Thing mythology. These are really rich things to well, and to dig.”
