Guillermo del Toro has been talking about his ambitious superhero team-up movie, The Dark Justice League...

You may remember a while back Guillermo del Toro revealed that he was in discussions with Warner Bros about a super hero team up movie. But it wouldn’t be The Justice League, instead a kind of Dark Justice League that would bring together some of his favourite and underappreciated characters in DC’s stable.

In a recent interview with Total Film he provided an update on the project. “Yeah, I am going to be presenting my storyline to DC and Warners of where I want to take this universe", he said. "We do have a writer, but until that is firmed up, I have to keep it a secret. I hope it happens.”

He went on to talk of his vision for the film. “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".

Fingers crossed this film has better luck than some of del Toro’s previous passion projects. More on the Dark Justice League when it’s available.
