Guillermo del Toro has said that his Justice League Dark film could easily be tied into Warner Bros’s broader DC cinematic universe.
The Hellboy writer-director said that he is keen to help create a joined up world similar to Marvel Studios’.
“I think that the great thing about the Dark Universe is that you have this possibility of basically creating this supernatural group, and you can play with different worlds, but I would love to see the DC Universe become as cohesive as the Marvel Universe,” he told MTV.
“So if there is any correlation I will honor it.”
Del Toro also offered an update of his work on the film.
“I’m writing it right now,” he said. “I’m rewriting the outline. We have a writer that we’re waiting for, so I said to Warners I will rewrite the outline in the meantime.”
The film – which will star many of the DC Universe mystic characters currently appearing in Jeff Lemire’s Justice League Dark – has been referred to by several names, including Dark Universe and Heaven Sent.
Warner Bros is expected to begin working on an interlinked cinematic universe following the success of Zack Snyder’s controversial Man of Steel.
Del Toro’s newest project Pacific Rim will open in 3D, IMAX 3D and 2D cinemas on July 12.
