With Guillermo del Toro‘s new film Pacific Rim out this week, there’s sure to be tons of news on his upcoming projects. He’ll next direct the star-studded haunted house thriller Crimson Peak, but he also continues to work on Dark Universe (aka Justice League Dark), the DC Comics inspired team up featuring some of the more supernatural characters in the DC Universe such as John Constantine, Swamp Thing, the Demon, Deadman, the Spectre and Zatanna.
Del Toro confirmed not much has changed since our last update on the film. He’s still writing a big outline and waiting for their ideal screenwriter to become available. One thing that has changed, however, is that the DC Cinematic Universe has kicked off in a new way with the release of Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel. Del Toro says, though nothing is set in stone yet, he’d definitely like his film to have continuity with Man of Steel and whatever else DC has in store. Read More »

When you’re a successful, in-demand screenwriter, you can just get on YouTube and rant. Max Landis, writer of one of the better superhero movies in the past few years (Chronicle) and director of a Superman fan film, did just that after seeing Man of Steel.
Landis has a true passion for the Superman character, and has some very choice words for the filmmakers behind not only this film, but other superhero movies in general. He talks about how the destruction in the film is totally against the character and serves as a reminder that the “hero” has been removed from “superhero” movies. It’s an interesting and thought-provoking monologue. Check it out below. Read More »
