This week has been a good week for us nerds, with news stories like the Star Wars purchase by Disney and Jamie Foxx may play Electro. We have one more to add to that if your brains and hearts can take it without exploding. Guillermo del Toro is finally going to direct, essentially, a Justice League Dark movie for DC.
Latino Review has the scoop. Take it with a grain of salt for sure, but they have a pretty good track record as of late. They are saying that del Toro’s Pacific Rim is doing well with Warner Brothers, so they are trying to get him to do more. He allegedly passed on a big screen version of V and a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory sequel. What he did take them up on is something he has talked about many times, a dark superhero film. The picture, as of now titled HEAVEN SENT:
Called HEAVEN SENT he is combining all the magical beings from DC Comics in one epic adventure. Deadman, The Spectre, Swamp Thing, Constantine Hellblazer, Phantom Stranger, Zatanna, Zatara, and Sargon as well as Etrigan the Demon will team up.
So del Toro will be making his own Avengers with the dark heroes he loves so much. You got Deadman, The Spectre, Swamp Thing, Constantine Hellblazer, The Phantom Stranger, Zatanna, Zatara, Sargon, and Etrigan the Demon. Now this all is obviously in very early stages so things may change if it goes all the way up to actually being shot. I remember way back in 2008 Doug Jones said that one of the roles he’d love to do is Deadman. He is a frequent del Toro collaborator, so maybe he can get that chance. What do you think about a movie that is essentially Justice League Dark?
