From our Tuesday Terrors piece on the film by Tim Janson: “Guillermo del Toro is working on a film for DC Comic that will star a number of the company's supernatural characters. Similar in lineup to the current "Justice League Dark" series, the film version is being developed with the title Dark Universe. The Pacific Rim director goes on to hint that the lineup for the project includes Swamp Thing, The Demon, John Constantine, Deadman, The Spectre and the father/daughter pair of Zatara and Zatanna”.
