With the DC cinematic universe finally starting to really get going, it looked like some older project ideas might be swept aside on the road to a [Justice League](movie:401267) movie. However, Guillermo Del Toro has revealed that at least one is still in the making: Justice League Dark.
The director, known for his signature dark style, told IGN that he is currently working on the screenplay with Warner Brothers.
We're deep in the screenplay writing phase. We see eye to eye, Warners and DC and myself, on what the movie is. Literally I'm having fun with the characters I most loved in comics, because they're all monsters or supernatural. Demon, Deadman, Swamp Thing, Zatanna, Constantine, the Fluoronic Man, many many others.
Fantastic news for fans of this supernatural version of the famous league, which has much more of a horror feel to it. It's a perfect movie for Del Toro, and I just know that he could make this absolutely incredible.
A major character in the movie will of course be [Constantine](movie:874314), who will also be gracing the small screen this fall in a new TV series.
The only thing I made clear to them is that the TV series would not affect the movie. Now, if we see the TV series and we can mesh with it and cast the same actor, depending on where the series is going, I would be happy to do that. As a fan I will watch it and keep an eye on it.
This is particularly interesting, because while he states that the show will not affect his movie, he also entertains the idea of having the TV and movie-verse connected, and even casting the same actor.
This will no doubt continue to fuel rumors that DC will be connecting their big and small-screen heroes, including the possibility of seeing Stephen Amell (Arrow) or Grant Gustin (the Flash) bringing their characters into the Justice League movie.
It would be an interesting move if they did decide to directly link the shows with the films, and it would be a much stronger link than what Marvel has done with [Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.](series:722469). Of course, that could backfire, but so far I'm impressed with the shows, and I would love to see Momoa get an [Aquaman](movie:264237) show!
