Gullermo Del Toro has been showing up in the news a lot these past few weeks. First, he’s still fresh off the attention that’s being received by the Jessica Chastain-starrer, Mama. Then he’s also being asked about his status with regard to Star Wars: Episode VII, At the Mountains of Madness, and the Hulk TV show. Now the director is once again under the spotlight as he confirms the status of his DC Comics supernatural team-up in an interview with IGN:
Yeah, yeah, we’re doing it. I’m working on the outline and we’re in talks with a writer. A very, very good writer. He accepted.”
Del Toro was not too keen on providing plot specifics, but he stated that the project, which is currently under the working title “Dark Universe,” will be featuring the Swamp Thing, The Demon, John Constantine, Deadman, The Spectre, Zatanna, and Zatara.
