One of “Pacific Rim” filmmaker Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming projects is what’s being dubbed “Dark Universe”. As previously reported, the film is essentially a team-up of the the various supernatural characters in the DC Comics Universe such as John Constantine, Swamp Thing, the Demon Etrigan, Deadman, The Spectre and Zatanna.
Asked about its status, del Toro tells MTV that he’s writing it right now. Actually, he’s re-writing the outline at present while they wait on a writer they already have set.
Asked if the building of the DC movie universe, starting with “Man of Steel,” has affected how the “Dark Universe” project is coming together, del Toro says:
The great thing about the Dark Universe is you have this possibility of basically creating a supernatural group and you can play by different rules, but I would love to see the DC Universe become as cohesive as the Marvel filmic universe. So if there’s any correlation, I will honor it.
