A while back Latino Review talked about a rumor that Guillermo del Toro had plans for a DC Comics ensemble film that would star quite a few of the company’s supernatural characters. Today IGN got the official confirmation that Dark Universe is indeed on his plate.
“I’m working on it,” Del Toro says of the film based on the Justice League Dark series. “I’m writing the outline and we’re already in talks with a writer. A very, very good writer. People are probably going to be happy with who we have chosen. He accepted. I’ve been courting this writer, who I think is the perfect guy for this job. We’re doing it. Hopefully it will happen.”
“The movement for this happened before [The Avengers],” adds del Toro regarding DC building its own cinematic universe. “They were already galvanized to launch ‘Justice League’ and they were galvanized to make their universe cohesive… They are really, really, with ‘Superman’, very, very confident with what they have. They are now feeling they have two pillars. Batman and Superman… There’s a foundation that now they can build on.”
