Guillermo del Toro to possibly Direct DC Comics' Heaven Sent

First up, the master of whimsical horror, Guillermo del Toro, is going to follow up his monster epic ‘Pacific Rim‘ with ‘Heaven Sent,’ which is said to be his version of ‘The Avengers.’ The film will collect all the magical beings of the DC comics world — Swamp Thing, Deadman, The Spectre, Constantine (!), Zatanna, Zatara and more — into one bonkers movie. The report says that Warner Bros. is still working to clear up the rights to each character.

In an interview with The Huffington Post, Pacific Rim director Guillermo del Toro seems to have upgraded his “Justice League Dark-style” movie Heaven Sent from something he’s “discussing” with Warner Brothers to “a probability.”

The project, first rumored by Latino Review and said to team up a number of DC Comics’s supernatural characters, including John Constantine, Swamp Thing, The Spectre and The Phantom Stranger, has been the subject of some debate; after elements of the initial report proved false (it was reported in the same article which claimed a second Powers pilot had been cast, filmed and rejected by FX), word was that del Toro had denied any involvement in the supernatural superhero team-up. Later, though, del Toro said that he would love to work on the film and that any denial on his part was regarding involvement with the Will Beall-written Justice League Warners is developing for 2015. He clarified that there had been discussions regarding Heaven Sent.

“It is a probability. But, see, the problem is that a lot of people get a hold of things before they are a reality. Like, for a while, people were talking about the Dr. Strange movie. I said, ‘I’m not involved. At all.’ And then they were talking about another movie and two or three times I had to say, ‘I’m not involved.’ In this case, I hope it happens.”

Certainly, DC Entertainment seems to be lining up John Constantine for something big–his long-running Vertigo Hellblazer series was recently cancelled to make way for a more continuity-friendly New 52 title named after Constantine, the feature film version of the character.
