Guillermo del Toro Plans 'Heaven Sent' with DC Comics Magical Beings
Right now Guillermo del Toro is playing with giant robots and monsters for Pacific Rim, but sometime down the road, he's going to be playing with some comic book properties again. While Hellboy 3 may still be a possibility, del Toro is also looking to play with some DC Comics characters. Latino Review has word that the director has passed on several big projects including a feature film version of V and a gestating sequel to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, but he's keen to direct a film called Heaven Sent. The film would combine a slew of magical beings from the DC Comics universe in an Avengers style assembly for adventure.
Deadman, The Spectre, Swamp Thing, Constantine Hellblazer, Phantom Stranger, Zatanna, Zatara, Sargon and Etrigan the Demon are the names listed (we'll let you do your own research to find out more about each of those characters), but it sounds like this one is still far down the road. Warner Bros. is working on getting all the legal rights together in order to make this work. However, this is exactly the kind of movie that would have geeks, nerds and fanboys going crazy at Comic-Con. Add Guillermo del Toro into the mix and you've got a match made in heaven. Here's hoping it actually happens! Sound cool?
