WonderCon: Guillermo Del Toro Talks JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK

During Saturday’s panel for Pacific Rim at WonderCon, director Guillermo del Toro said that John Constantine – and he emphasized he l’ be blonde here – will be the main character in his planned Justice League Dark movie tentatively titled Dark Universe. (Ok, it would be REALLY nice to get a grip and decide what’s it gonna be with that title. Is it Justice League Dark, or Dark Universe or the third one, I forgot what was it??) Constantine will be the central figure around whom the League will round up. The director also revealed that the film won’t be an origin movie, but with...

Director Updates TRON: LEGACY Sequel Status at WonderCon 2013

Arrived at WonderCon to promote Oblivion, ended up talking about Tron: Legacy sequel… Almost like a perfect oneliner for ‘Bad luck Brian’ meme – if this could be called ‘bad luck’, heheh. I am talking, of course, about director Joseph Kosinski, whose sci-fi epic almost ended up at Disney’s, but they passed it – deeming the subject matter to be too adult. No such barriers with Tron: Legacy, which earned $400M worldwide on a $170M production budget, back in 2010. Disney expected a bigger box-office earnings (evil empire!) from the Tron sequel, which is why three years have passed since Legacy and we’re hearing only...
