Guillermo del Toro has dropped some tantalising hints of where he sees his Justice League Dark story developing.
Fans of DC Comics’ darker take on its Avengers -style superteam are in for a treat.
“I am going to be presenting my storyline to DC and Warners of where I want to take this universe. We do have a writer, but until that is firmed up, I have to keep it a secret. I hope it happens,” he said.
“It’s going really really well. It’s like meeting old friends. I grew up with Demon Etrigan, with Swamp Thing, with Deadman, so these are characters that are near and dear to my heart.”
“I’d love to use the origins that are proper to each character. I love the idea of Jason Blood as a paladin and a knight…. I love the entire Constantine mythology, the Dead Man mythology, the Alex Holland Swamp Thing mythology. These are really rich things to well, and to dig.”
Comic fans will be cheered to hear that not only is del Toro as big a fan, but that he’s focusing on the classic team line-up.
