Guillermo del Toro to Pitch Dark Universe Project to Warner Bros.
Guillermo del Toro announced that he will be pitching a "Dark Universe" project to Warner Bros. del Toro, along with another writer, whom he won't reveal yet, will be doing the project together.  The film will be an "Avengers" style film, with various magical beings from the DC Comics universe all coming together.

   "I am going to be presenting my storyline to DC and Warners of where I want to take this universe. We do have a writer, but until that is firmed up, I have to keep it a secret", said del Toro.  "   I hope it happens. It's going really really well. It's like meeting old friends. I grew up with Demon Etrigan, with Swamp Thing, with Deadman, so these are characters that are near and dear to my heart. I'd love to use the origins that are proper to each character. I love the idea of Jason Blood as a paladin and a knight.... I love the entire Constantine mythology, the Dead Man mythology, the Alex Holland Swamp Thing mythology. These are really rich things to well, and to dig."

del Toro recently executive produced the thriller "Mama" and is currently working on "Kung Fu Panda 3".
