Guillermo del Toro: Justice League Dark Movie


In an interview with The Huffington Post, Pacific Rim director Guillermo del Toro seems to have upgraded his "Justice League Dark-style" movie Heaven Sent from something he's "discussing" with Warner Brothers to "a probability." The project, first rumored by Latino Review and said to team up a number of DC Comics's supernatural characters, including John Constantine, Swamp Thing, The Spectre and The Phantom Stranger, has been the subject of some debate; after elements of the initial report proved false (it was reported in the same article which claimed a second Powers pilot had been cast, filmed and rejected by FX), word was that del Toro had denied any involvement in the supernatural superhero team-up. Later, though, del Toro said that he would love to work on the film and that any denial on his part was regarding involvement with the Will Beall-written Justice League Warners is developing for 2015. He clarified that there had been discussions regarding Heaven Sent. "It is a probability. But, see, the problem is that a lot of people get a hold of things before they are a reality. Like, for a while, people were talking about the Dr. Strange movie. I said, 'I'm not involved. At all.' And then they were talking about another movie and two or three times I had to say, 'I'm not involved.' In this case, I hope it happens." Certainly, DC Entertainment seems to be lining up John Constantine for something big--his long-running Vertigo Hellblazer series was recently cancelled to make way for a more continuity-friendly New 52 title named after Constantine, the feature film version of the character.
