Guillermo del Toro has been offering an update on his planned Justice League Dark project...

Guillermo del Toro was at the Los Angeles Times Hero Complex Festival on Saturday, and while he was there he provided an update on his Justice League Dark movie.

He revealed that the script has the team consisting of Constantine, Swamp Thing, Madame Xanadu, Deadman and Zantanna. He also said that there would be other characters in there, basically “everybody that doesn't feel like a repeat”, but didn't go into specifics as he wanted to avoid spoilers for the film.

He also mentioned that he has yet to receive the go ahead from Warner Brothers, “if they (Warner Brothers) like the script, I'll do it; if not...”. In theory, this could be another project of del Toro's that falls by the wayside, although we dearly hope not. If this summer's Pacific Rim is the hit that they're hoping it will be they may be willing to allow him to make the film as he wants.

At the panel a re-worked trailer for Pacific Rim was shown, which reportedly didn't feature a great deal of footage different from the one shown at Wonder Con, aside from Charlie Day being more prominent in this one. del Toro also spoke of his adaptation of Naoki Urasawa's Manga Monster, revealing that he submitted the script for the pilot last week to the studio, and that it will follow the 18 volume source very closely.

More on all of the above when it's available.

Sounds interesting, but please just get on & do what everybody wants you to de del Toro, HELLBOY 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You read my mind - love the Hellboy movies!

Would really, really love to see Justice League Dark. Everyone go see Pacific Rim so that the studios are impressed by his box office clout!

This would be phenomenal, and not just for having more Zatanna on screen. Though, seriously, that would be awesome. Lauren Graham, if she was a better actor?

Also, Guillermo looks a little bit like the guy from Human Centipede 2, and I'm sorry for putting that in everyone's heads.

This is the best idea going for the DC Cinematic Universe at the moment (IMO) but I refuse to get my hopes up in case this goes the way of Mountains of Maddness.

Dark Universe is more exciting to me than Star Wars. However, there is so much that could go wrong that makes me really worried. For example, if Pacific Rim is a failure, it won't get made, if Superman is a failure, it will probably not get made and if Justice League goes out before and fails, then it won't get made and if WB hate the script or anything that Del Toro wants to do, then it won't get made. I do hope it does get made.

This would be great to see (I am also excited for an adaption of Monster) I do hope I will get to see my favourites from DC show up. Being promised Zantanna is already a plus!

Wait... What? Start over.

is "Zantanna" supposed to be "Zatanna" or is that someone else? ...

As soon as possible, please
