Few films have us more excited on a purely geek level than Guillermo del Toro’s take on DC Comics’ Dark Universe. As you would imagine, details are scant and the powers-that-be are tight-lipped, but Del Toro did pull back the curtain a little recently.
“I am going to be presenting my storyline to DC and Warners of where I want to take this universe,” Del Toro tells Total Film during a recent interview regarding Mama. “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.”
When asked if he’d be focused on the current storyline of the comic or go back to the beginning, Del Toro responded, “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.”
