Last month, Guillermo del Toro confirmed he is working on a DC Comics ensemble project entitled Dark Universe, that brings characters such as Swamp Thing, Jason Blood, John Constantine, Deadman, Demon Etrigan, and many more together. The filmmaker revealed that he is about to pitch his take to Warner Bros. and DC, along with a mystery writer he would not reveal the identity of.

"I am going to be presenting my storyline to DC and Warners of where I want to take this universe. We do have a writer, but until that is firmed up, I have to keep it a secret. I hope it happens. It's going really really well. It's like meeting old friends. I grew up with Demon Etrigan, with Swamp Thing, with Deadman, so these are characters that are near and dear to my heart. I'd love to use the origins that are proper to each character. »
