It has been awhile since we have heard anything about director Guillermo del Toro's Dark Universe--a movie that will bring together second string characters from DC Comics--ala` The Avengers or Justice League but with a darker supernatural tone.
Now, El Mayimbe from Latino Review claims that the characters of John Constantine, Zatanna, Brand/Deadman and Jason Blood will be in this first film.
None of these characters have not been confirmed by the Warner Bros yet. We also don't know if the project is part of either the already in progress DC Cinematic Universe or a rumored separate shared universe featuring only characters from Vertigo Comics titles.
The story will reportedly deal with Jason Blood's history with Merlin
and King Arthur's knights, but bring the threat to present day.
The news comes as the fate of NBC's "Constantine," TV series starring Matt Ryan as John Constantine, is very much in doubt and its renewal is unlikely.
