Guillermo del Toro spent several years shaping a film project called ‘Dark Universe’ based on DC Comics’ mystical characters, most of whom existed under its Vertigo imprint. Del Toro’s project later became ‘Justice League Dark’ when DC rebooted its line of comics and lumped a number of their mystical characters into a rag tag team under that banner. But after all that time, the busy del Toro realized he would not be available to film this movie under the time constraints demanded of parent company Warner Brothers, who were moving forward with a cinematic universe populated by the heroes and villains of DC Comics. Sadly, the director left the project, which was believed to have been shelved, but like one of the movie’s reported stars, Deadman, the project has arisen under the guidance of producer Scott Rudin, who hopes to begin filming next year!
Producer Scott Rudin Revives ‘Justice League Dark’ To Shoot Next Year
Jason's earliest memory is of watching 'Batman,' followed shortly by a memory of playing Batman & Robin with a friend, which entailed running outside in just their underwear and towels as capes. When adults told them they couldn't run around outside in their underwear, both boys promptly whipped theirs off and ran around in just capes. Jason's father gamely agreed to read him comic books as bedtime stories instead of 'Snow White.' (Super Friends being his favorite.) Jason saw all of the original Star Wars movies (and Indiana Jones and Superman and Star Trek...) in the theaters. Yes, he is old. And grew up in the most GEEKTASTIC decade ever, the 80s, devouring a steady diet of GI Joe, Transformers, Masters of the Universe, Princess of Power and (best of all) Jem! (It totally counts as sci fi! They had a sentient computer that projected holograms!) Jason has studied literature, journalism, film history and has a degree in creative writing (and a minor in psychology) from the University of South Alabama. He has worked as a technical writer and proofreader. These days, most of his creative energy goes into his blog and writing for this site! He lives with the cutest puppies ever.
