Guillermo del Toro Interested in Supernatural DC Ensemble Movie
There’s a rumor going around that Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy and Pacific Rim) is looking to bring some of DC‘s supernatural characters together in a project entitled ‘Heaven Sent’. Apparently this will bring together characters such as Swamp Thing, Deadman, Constantine (who I hope they finally do right), the Spectre, Phantom Stranger, Zatanna, Zatara, Sargon, and Etrigan the Demon. At the moment details are pretty much slim to none except that del Toro has an interest in this project but a supernatural DC ensemble cast does sound pretty cool. Especially with titles like ‘Justice League Dark’ out now and del Toro’s track record of weird supernatural films, it does sound right up his alley.
Latino Review recently broke the news about the ‘Heaven Sent’ project;
Speaking of Guillermo del Toro let’s just say he is working on a movie that has the potential to be the greatest movie ever committed to film. Or bytes. I hear that his next epic, PACIFIC RIM ( a Japanese Porno) is testing so well that Warner Brothers wants to offer him everything they have. Fortunately he passed on the feature version of V and the sequel to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory but he does want to do his own version of the Avengers, just supernaturally. Called HEAVEN SENT he is combining all the magical beings from DC Comics in one epic adventure. Deadman, The Spectre, Swamp Thing, Constantine Hellblazer, Phantom Stranger, Zatanna, Zatara, and Sargon as well as Etrigan the Demon will team up to no doubt save us from the Stay Puft Marshmallow man. Now this one is a ways away, but Warner’s lawyers have been working every night trying to clear the rights to all these characters.
