You may remember last week we posted a by way of Latino Review that director and master of the dark Guillermo del Toro could possibly be working on a Dark Justice League film tentatively titled Heaven Sent featuring Swamp Thing, Deadman, and Constantine to name only a few characters. There had been some conflicting reports on whether or not that’s true, but del Toro finally gave a pretty straight answer about it.
Talking with MTV Geek about his comic and TV adaptation of his book series The Strain for Dark Horse, he was asked if there was any truth to the movie rumor:
When somebody asked me about “Justice League”…I’m not involved in “Justice League.” I am discussing…I’ve been discussing with the fans and I’ve been very, very open about how much “Swamp Thing” was key when I was a kid. Comics in Mexico came on the first two days of the week. Around Tuesday and Wednesday I would go to the newsstand on my bicycle and I would get “Swamp Thing” every time it was available and I loved Jack Kirby’s “Demon”. I love Constantine and all that. You know, I’ve been pursuing doing something with them for many, many years. Hopefully it’ll come to pass. But we are still just discussing.
So del Toro is in talks. While that doesn’t mean anything it guaranteed, we can take the news with less salt than we needed beforehand. It would be amazing to see del Toro take on Swamp Thing and the other darker characters. That team would be right in his wheelhouse. What do you think about this? Are you hoping it gets moving faster than most del Toro projects?
