Guillermo del Toro is really pushing for a ‘Justice League Dark’ movie, and who knows, with all eyes waiting in anticipation for ‘Man of Steel’ to exceed even the expectations of the people at DCE and Warner Bros, this might be just the push to show that DC characters are still marketable on the big screen.
Here’s what Guillermo has planned:
“… 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.”
“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 Alex Holland Swamp Thing mythology. These are really rich things to well, and to dig.”
These characters are a little more left of center than your usual dose of superheroes, but maybe that’s what DC needs right now. What do you think? Would you rather see the titans of JLA or go JLD on the big screen?
