When we last heard from Guillermo del Toro on his magical Justice League project, we found out the working title was Dark Universe, that he was working on an outline, and they were trying to find the right writer. It seems he’s finally ready to take the next step – bring his idea to Warner Bros.
In an interview with Total Film, del Toro talked about his progress but kept pretty tight lipped about the details.
He said, “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.”
On the topic of the writer del Toro previously said, “I think people are going to be happy with who we have chosen.”
“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,” he told Total Film. “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 Alec Holland Swamp Thing mythology. These are really rich things to well, and to dig.”
Crossing my fingers so hard right now.
