It may seem like Guillermo Del Toro has 65 projects going at once, but you would be wrong. It is closer to 80. Now the producer and director has given an update on his Dark Universe movie which will team up Swamp Thing, John Constantine, Deadman and more in a supernatural team-up film. In an interview with Total Film Del Toro had this to say:

“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. 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.”

OK fans of any of these characters you should really be hoping that Del Toro’s big summer flick Pacific Rim is a monstrous hit because this is going to be a hard sell for any director, but a big summer blockbuster may help Del Toro get into the minds of the Warner execs to give this movie a shot.
