Guillermo Del Toro Confirms DC Shared Movie Universe with Superman and Batman!!! Writing Outline for Justice League Dark!!!

“Hellboy” director Guillermo Del Toro confirms the news that Warner Bros. is planning a shared DC Comics movie universe, and that it begins with Superman and Batman, with the “Man of Steel” movie spearheading it all, followed by a Justice League 2015 movie and a new Batman reboot set for 2016.

Guillermo Del Toro also gives an update about his “Justice League Dark” movie that is set to star the supernatural characters of the DC Comics Universe, with a working title of “Dark Universe.”

Previously, “Justice League Dark” or “Heaven Sent,” was rumored to be green lit by Warner Bros. as it was stated WB was so happy with Del Toro’s upcoming epic science-fiction robot monster movie, “Pacific Rim,” that they gave it the go ahead.

Now we get word from Del Toro that he is working on it, is writing the outline for “Justice League Dark,” and has a writer:

“I’m working on it. I’m writing the outline and we’re already in talks with a writer. A very, very good writer. People are probably going to be happy with who we have chosen. He accepted. I’ve been courting this writer, who I think is the perfect guy for this job. We’re doing it. Hopefully it will happen. We don’t know until they green light the movie.”

Del Toro also clues us in on the members of the movie as he calls Swamp Thing a “rock star,” and the Demon Etrigan another favorite who is “amazing.” John Constantine is mentioned, as well as Deadman, the Spectre, Zatanna and Zatara, but Del Toro doesn’t want to reveal more as it would give away plot details.

Guillermo Del Toro then lets it be known that Warner Bros. has been planning a shared movie universe for sometime, even previous to “The Avengers” movie:

“The movement for this happened before. They were already galvanized to launch Justice League and they were galvanized to make their universe cohesive.”

Del Toro than states that he feels Warner Bros. is very happy with the new Superman movie, “Man of Steel,” and that Batman and Superman will be launching the new shared movie universe:

“What I feel now is that they are really, really, with Superman, they feel very, very confident with what they have. They are now feeling they have two pillars: Batman and Superman for the DC Universe. And tonally, they have a darker tone, more urban and sophisticated tone. There’s a foundation that now they can build on it, a building, you know.”
