Guillermo del Toro says that he and another writer, whom he won't reveal just yet, are about to pitch to Warner Brothers their take on the DC Comics "Dark Universe" ensemble project.

As previously suggested, the project will see the various magical beings from the DC Comics universe coming together "The Avengers" style. Del Toro says:

"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. I love the idea of Jason Blood »
