At a comic book conventions Guillermo Del Toro is a god, both for the goodies he brings and the goodies he announces for the future. At WonderCon 2013, Del Toro brought footage from Pacific Rim, which is out this year, but also discussed what’s next. As we know, he’ll first direct Crimson Peak. He has also been working on Dark Universe, aka Justice League Dark, a DC Comics team-up film featuring some of the company’s darker heroes: Swamp Thing, the Demon, Deadman, the Spectre and Zatanna.
Del Toro revealed he’s recently finished the film’s “Bible,” will soon be announcing the screenwriter who’ll work from that bible, and that the film will star John Constantine (the blonde version) who is tasked with recruiting the other members of the team. Read his quote below. Read More »
