    Cool idea, but this is del Toro so I'm not getting my hopes up until they actually start filming.

    These are projects he's been attached to just in the last few years:

    Frankenstein

    The Hobbit

    a new adaptation of Slaughterhouse-Five

    Drood, a film based on a Dan Simmons novel published in February 2009.

    Saturn

    the End of Days.

    a brand new take on the story of Van Helsing.

    a 3D remake of The Haunted Mansion for Disney.

    The Incredible Hulk (TV series)

    At the Mountains of Madness

    the movie adaption of David Moody's novel Hater.

    his first video game titled Insane

    a segment for an upcoming Heavy Metal sequel.

    new adaptations of the Stephen King novels It

    Pet Sematary

    a new film version of Beauty and the Beast

    Whever Del Toro gets to make a movie, It's awesome.

    But like I said... I've been burned by Mountains of Madness to many times.
    ...And does Mr. Goddanm Batman says so much as ''Thanks''? OF COURSE not. That'd hardly be GRIM AND GRITTY, would it?

    Just don't actually call it "Justice League Dark" because to me that sounds like an evil version of the JLA or something.

    I just thought that name was lazy as hell.

    Agreed. That title can be so misleading.

    I wouldn't put Justice League in it either or people will be expecting The Justice League in some form, that is if they're not going to be in the movie.

    Just call it Sentinels of Magic or something. Sure every character mentioned in the OP might not of been a member, but some have.

    I'd think they should just make a Zatanna film and have other characters like Deadman and Constantine cameo.
    Currently reading She-Hulk, Deadpool, Swamp Thing, Ms. Marvel

    Probation: Ghost Rider, Loki: LoA, Secret Avengers

    Looking forward to All-New Ultimates, Flash Gordon and Doctor Mirage.

    Justice League Dark sounds like a fine title to me. It's an actual comic book, too, apparently.

    Woo! I was disappointed when he first said he wasn't in talks.

    But to the non comic fans they'd just assume it's a Justice League movie with the actual Justice League

    Non-fans don't give a shit, trust me. Moreover, the inclusion of "Dark" clearly suggests this isn't your father's Justice League.

    I like this because these characters are exactly in the style that Del Toro would shine in. I would be curious to see these weird character interact and argue and so forth.

    Also I would really it if Del Toro would do a live action Hulk, but no a CGI Hulk, a mix of a suit and animatronix.
