I don’t think there’s anyone here who isn’t keen on a Justice League movie. But I’m even more keen on a Justice League Dark movie from the Kaiju-obsessed mind of Guillermo Del Toro. All the supernatural heavyweights of the DC universe trading spells and hexes in one big film. Hell to the yes.
But Del Toro might find himself a tad more constrained with this kind of film, as anything DC related would have to follow certain rules and help create a larger universe to sit alongside other characters.
We’re still on [Justice League Dark] and writing and hopefully it will happen, but there’s no developments that are new. It’s still at Warners. They are making plans for the entire DC Universe, all the superheroes, all the mythologies, and part of that is Justice League Dark. They’re planning on TV, movies, all the media, so we have to fit within that plan.
With Man of Steel and The Dark Knight trilogy having already established a tone that WB wants to move forward in, it’s clear that they want to create a media empire similar to what Disney has going with Marvel right now. While Del Toro would have to make some concessions to his plans for the JLD film, I doubt he wouldn’t be able to get away with several signature elements, based on the more mature direction that WB has going.
But seeing the potential for Justice League movie teams to tangle? It may be a stretch in the long run, but it’s one hell of a great idea.
