One of the numerous projects that Guillermo del Toro has in various stages of development is Dark Universe, a.k.a. Justice League Dark. The filmmaker revealed back in August that the project is still being written, and may include Matt Ryan playing John Constantine from the NBC series. Today, Guillermo del Toro told Forbes that the script he wrote for the project was turned in to executives at Warner Bros., with reactions from the studio expected to come soon.
If the studio likes what they see, it could mean that the project will take another step closer towards production. However, with the Thanksgiving holiday coming in just a few short days, it isn't known when we may get another status update on this highly-anticipated project. Regardless of the studio's reaction to the script, the filmmaker's desire to bring in Matt Ryan as John Constantine may be in jeopardy, since the show has stopped production after 13 episodes.
Justice League Dark will feature other popular DC Comics characters such as Swamp Thing, Deadman, Shade, Madame Xanadu, Zatanna, Etrigan the Demon, The Floronic Man and The Spectre. Since the project wasn't a part of Warner Bros. and DC's superhero slate announced back in August, it seems unlikely that this will be connected to the studio's primary superhero universe.
