If this were true, it would be awesome:
[Guillermo del Toro] does want to do his own version of the Avengers, just supernaturally. Called HEAVEN SENT he is combining all the magical beings from DC Comics in one epic adventure. Deadman, The Spectre, Swamp Thing, Constantine Hellblazer, Phantom Stranger, Zatanna, Zatara, and Sargon as well as Etrigan the Demon will team up to no doubt save us from the Stay Puft Marshmallow man. Now this one is a ways away, but Warner’s lawyers have been working every night trying to clear the rights to all these characters.
I’m unsure about the veracity of this, purely because del Toro is a busy, busy man – and also one with more connection with Marvel (for whom he’s executive producing the new Hulk TV project) than DC, surely. And yet… the idea of a movie version of Justice League Dark (or, let’s be honest, Swamp Thing‘s “American Gothic” storyline, judging by that line-up of characters) would really be great.
The same rumor-monger from Latino Review also says that FX’s second Powers pilot had the same level of success (ie, not enough) with the powers that be at the channel, but you might want to take both rumors with a pinch of salt considering they’re accompanied by this:
Bendis is one of the single best writers in the Comic Book Business and he has been with these managers for over 15 years, which is why they manage to sign so many other creators. During that time Bendis has gotten dozens of hit TV shows on the air as well as 4 of the top 20 films of all time.
Either that’s sarcasm, or this writer is plainly crazy. Bendis has “gotten dozens of hit TV shows on the air”? Or four of the top 20 films of all time?
UPDATE: Bendis has tweeted that “reports in Latino review about the powers pilot at 100% false. every name and fact are incorrect.” So, now we know, then.
