Guillermo Del Toro has confirmed that his Justice League Dark-like film is in early stages of development.
Speaking to IGN, the director said the project, under the working title of Dark Universe, has a tentative writer who fans would “accept”.
“Yeah, I’m doing it! I’m writing the outline, and we are already in talks with a writer, a very very good writer, I think people are going to be happy who we have chosen, and he accepted,” he said.
Adding a note of caution however, he continued: “We don’t know if it will happen, we don’t know until they green light the movie.”
Talking about his love for the source material, he concluded: “Swamp Thing to me is a rock star. Demon Etrigan is crazy. Constantine, who I thought was an amazing creation – I want to do the Constantine of the comics. Deadman. You know, it’s a lot of work but a lot of fun.”
