Guillermo del Toro talks Dark Universe and possible continuity with Man of Steel

Jul. 8, 2013by:

The one Guillermo del Toro project I need constant updates on is DARK UNIVERSE, better known as the Justice League Dark movie. While the actual JUSTICE LEAGUE movie seems to be in some sort of limbo, this one is finding a way to keep chugging along. During press for PACIFIC RIM, Del Toro was asked where the flick was at currently by MTV:

"I'm writing it right now. I'm re-writing the outline. We have a writer that we are waiting for so I said to Warner's that I will rewrite the outline in the meantime."

With the success of MAN OF STEEL and the rebuilding of the DC universe, MTV wondered if DARK UNIVERSE would be separate or if there would be continuity to which del Toro responded:

"I think the great thing about the Dark Universe is that you have this possibility of basically creating a supernatural group and you can play with different roles but I would love to see the DC universe become as coshesive as the Marvel film universe and if there is any correlation I will honor it."

Justice League Dark is a team-up of John Constantine, Swamp Thing, the Demon, Deadman, the Spectre and Zatanna. They will take the underground paths and do the jobs that JLA won't be doing. They find the things that go bump in the night and often deal with the supernatural. Definitely an area that del Toro is familiar with. I hope this really does work out, and that we get to see a diverse cast on board this thing.

I stopped collecting comic books many years ago, if I had known about this Justice League Dark I would've been back in the store in a hot second. Shame on me....shame.
Six of my favorite DC characters and Guillermo del Toro....hell yes. But dear God no one tell Keanu Reeves!

Well, with the New52 reboot, you only have a couple of years of TPB to buy, in order to get back in continuity

Remember one of The Lone Ranger's lessons

Dark Universe continues to excite me. The traditional Justice League of America movie might be taking its time. However, DC Comics has other groups, and Justice League Dark is one of them. Heck, we fans got a good Watchmen movie recently. So, WB can note that DC Comics has other groups. I want to see Del Toro's Dark Universe.
However, I hope that Del Toro and WB remember a lesson from this past weekend when The Lone Ranger premiered. Do not make the same movie that you always make. Gore

However, I hope that Del Toro and WB remember a lesson from this past weekend when The Lone Ranger premiered. Do not make the same movie that you always make. Gore Verbinski made a Lone Ranger movie that was basically another Pirates of the Caribbean. Del Toro is at risk of making a Dark Universe that is another Hellboy. Granted, the individual characters differ significantly between Justice League Dark and the BPRD, but the teams' overall concepts are very similar.

Finally a Del Toro movie that actually sounds interesting & it would be cool to tie them in with the other movies. Maybe WB needs Del Toro instead of Nolan for these movies. Not a knock on Nolan, so calm down fanboys lol!

I really hope this gets made. The potential for a darker team up superhero movie just sounds [link] with the characters and man involved.
