Even though Batman vs. Superman is the most talked about superhero film in development at Warner Bros., don’t forget that Guillermo del Toro is working on a “Justice League Dark” film set to feature Swamp Thing, The Demon, John Constantine, Deadman, The Spectre and the father/daughter pair of Zatara and Zatanna. In a recent interview with Cinefilos.it, Del Toro says that development is still going on the project, but he also mentioned something very interesting about the future of the DC universe.
“We’re still on (Justice League Dark), writing, and hopefully it will happen but there are no developments that are new. We’re still at Warner Bros., they are making plans for the entire DC universe. All the superheroes, all the mythologies, and part of that is Justice League Dark. They’re planning on TV, movies, and all the media, so we have to fit into that plan.”
We know that Zack Snyder’s upcoming Man of Steel follow-up will put Batman and Superman on the big screen together for the first time, but this is the first we’re hearing about “the entire DC universe” being in the planning stages.
