Guillermo del Toro maybe hard at work prepping for production on Pacific Rim 2 but many have wondered what ever happened to just Justice League: Dark adaption titled Dark Universe. Word has been very quiet on the Vertigo/DC Comics adaption ever since NBC put into production the Constantine TV series starring Matt Ryan. Last we heard was that del Toro had finished his treatment on the story and was searching for a screenwriter to write the script.
Well while speaking with Forbes the director reveals that the script has indeed been completed and has just been sent to Warner Brothers over the weekend. This just comes mere days after NBC announced that production on Constantine would be halted after 13-episodes and a second season hanging in the balance. Could this actually be the break star Matt Ryan needs to star in Dark Universe as the "Master of the Dark Arts" John Constantine on the big screen? NBC and Warner Brothers could have the series wrap up as prequel leading directly into Guillermo del Toro's Dark Universe.
Even though Dark Universe wasn't on DC Comics most recent film slate it's entirely possible that it will be announced with a slate of Vertigo titles set within the "Vertigo Universe" as suggested by Sandman creator Neil Gaiman. Sandman is another title in the works by actor and director Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
