DC Comics’ Justice League Dark issue 9

Guillermo del Toro is preparing to present his pitch for his Justice League Dark-style supernatural superhero movie Heaven Sent to Warner Bros.

In an interview with Total Film, del Toro said that he can’t reveal more details until the deal is done, but he spoke about which characters he’s hoping to use.

“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.”
