DC want Guillermo Del Toro to direct Heaven Sent team-up movie?

November 4th, 2012 by Marc Comments

It has to be said that, while we love the idea of this, we really think it’s – at best – a wild rumour.

Warners are reportedly so happy with Pacific Rim that they want Guillermo Del Toro to handle their tentpole DC character team-up movie. What’s that you say, Justice League?! Em, no. Heaven Sent. Em, what?

According to Latino Review, Heaven Sent is a DC team-up movie that will feature second-tier characters including: Deadman, The Spectre, Swamp Thing, John Constantine, Phantom Stranger, Zatanna, Zatara, Sargon and Etrigan the Demon.

Ok, this seems like it’s right up Del Toro’s street but with his schedule full for the next few years and a rumoured mess of legal rights to get through for the charaters, we, sadly, doubt this will ever see the light of day and even if it does, it’ll be quite some time… still, it does sound kinda cool.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
