In a recent interview with Total Film about all things “Mama”, Guillermo del Toro released teasers of what will be coming in the future with “Justice League Dark”. According to the acclaimed director, pre-production has been moving smoothly. He also hints at which of the comic characters he would love to see come to life in the 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”, he said.
Del Toro’s visionary style seems to be a good match for the source material. “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.”
This man is passionate about his work, and he also wants to give DC fans what they have dreamed of. Look for “Justice League Dark” to release sometime in the summer of 2015.
