While it seems that the work on the Justice League movie has stalled somewhat, it does look like another DC movie project is making some progress. Guillermo del Toro recently revealed how he had an idea for a Justice League Dark movie, tentatively titled Dark Universe, and he has now given a brief update on the project.
Del Toro explained to 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. 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 added, "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."
Justice League Dark centres around a team of supernatural heroes, who are brought together by Madame Xanadu and headed by John Constantine. With the difficulties surrounding the Justice League movie, it could be possible that we see the Justice League Dark film first. Watch this space.
