Guillermo del Toro has long been hopeful of getting a Justice League Dark movie greenlit, with Warner apparently keen on bringing the project to the big screen.
However, the studio seems to be taking its time over giving the film the go-ahead, with del Toro revealing he will likely have to fit his plans into the studio’s broader vision for an expanded DC universe.
“We’re still on [Justice League Dark] and writing and hopefully it will happen,” says del Toro, “but there’s no developments that are new. It’s still at Warners.
“They are making plans for the entire DC Universe, all the superheroes, all the mythologies, and part of that is Justice League Dark. They’re planning on TV, movies, all the media, so we have to fit within that plan.”
Whether or not that means the project will definitely appear as a movie, or might make its way on to TV remains to be seen, although with the weird and wonderful creatures in its roster, we’d be hoping for the higher budgets afforded by the big screen.
Quite frankly, we’ll wait for this one no matter how long it takes, as a cinematic Swamp Thing courtesy of del Toro is a prize worth waiting for…
