Look out, Marvel Studios! It appears that Warner Bros. is also aiming to create a cohesive movieverse for their comic book properties. While chatting with IGN, Hellboy director Guillermo del Toro confirmed an old rumor -- he's working on a DC movie currently being called Dark Universe.
I'm writing the outline and we already are in talks with a writer. A very, very good writer. I think people are going to be happy with who we have chosen and he accepted.
When asked if the success of The Avengers motivated Warner Bros to move forward with their comic properties, del Toro says the studio had plans before Marvel's team-up dominated the box office.
He seemed quite excited about the writer... who do you think it'll be and how do you feel about this team heading to the silver screen? Be sure to check out our Comic Vine page for the team to do your homework on the characters!
