While it doesn't look like we'll be getting a traditional "Justice League" movie from Warner Bros. anytime soon, there have been some developments with Guillermo del Toro's "Justice League Dark".
Also being referred to as "Dark Universe", del Toro discusses what he envisions for his upcoming project. He wants the lineup of super-heroes to consist of John Constantine, Swamp Thing, the Demon, Deadman, the Spectre and Zatanna:
"On Justice League Dark, or Dark Universe, what we’re doing is we finished the bible. Then we’re going to start the screenplay with a writer we hope we can announce very soon. What I’m doing is the lead character that guides us through that is Constantine. Blonde. He is basically trying to recruit these guys. On Etrigan, I’m using Jason Blood in the time of Merlin. We get to their origin through the story. We don’t make the origin story at the top. We find it out as they each have mysteries to solve. Swamp Thing is at peace with who he is, but Deadman still needs to figure out who shot him. It’s all woven in. When I was a kid, my two favorite characters in the whole DC Universe were Etrigan and Swamp Thing, so I’m in heaven."
The king of monsters recently produced "Mama" and next up, he has the haunted house story "Crimson Peak", starring Emma Stone and Charlie Hunnam. Then hopefully he will begin production on "Dark Universe". With his distinctive and badass style, we will undoubtedly be in for a treat of cosmic proportions.
