Guillermo Del Toro Writing Outline For DARK UNIVERSE Confirms They've Found A Screenwriter
IGN talked to Guillermo del Toro on his in-development DC Comic film Heaven Sent. Previously, coy about the project Guillermo was a little forthcoming with details revealing it's working title is Dark Universe. Confirming that he's currently writing the outline and has hired a screenwriter to flush out the script. However, the film hasn't been greenlit by the studio which will likely come down to how the script turns out. He names Swamp Thing, John Constantine, Deadman, Spectre, Zatanna and Etrigan The Demon as being involved in the film. Warner Bros. could be looking to start-off their own cohesive DC Universe with Man of Steel leading to Justice League. It's possible that Dark Universe could somehow inhabit the same cinematic world as Justice League.
