Last week we learned that Guilermo del Toro was looking to develop a supernatural Justice League Dark style movie called Heaven Sent. The movie would bring together the DC Comics characters Deadman, The Spectre, Swamp Thing, Constantine Hellblazer, Phantom Stranger, Zatanna, Zatara, and Sargon, as well as Etrigan the Demon! All in one movie. This would no doubt be one hell of a film! I'm actually more excited about this happening than I am with the Justice League movie currently in development.
Del Toro himself confirmed with MTV that the movie is cooking, and he's in discussions with Warner Bros.
When somebody asked me about Justice League…I'm not involved in Justice League. I am discussing…I've been discussing with the fans and I've been very, very open about how much Swamp Thing was key when I was a kid. Comics in Mexico came on the first two days of the week. Around Tuesday and Wednesday I would go to the newsstand on my bicycle and I would get Swamp Thing every time it was available and I loved Jack Kirby's Demon. I love Constantine and all that. You know, I've been pursuing doing something with them for many, many years. Hopefully it'll come to pass. But we are still just discussing.
It's still seems like a long way off, but it seems like there's a solid chance it could eventually get made. We previously heared that WB lawyers have been hard hard at work clearing the rights on all of these characters so that the movie can happen.
Are you excited to hear that there's some actual momentum on this epic project?
