At least he's British. But that would be funny. I can hear the complaints now. "Elba should be MAP!"

There's a thought.

Hopefully, we might get Idris Elba as Chas. Or Phantom Stranger. Or John Constantine.

So, that Necro/Constanteen thing? There IS something to that. So, I expect the return of Keanusteen if this gets green lighted. Pacific Rim should be so badass that this project could suck balls out the ass and it won't matter. Pacific Rim looks to be the greatest thing ever and I can't get hold of the goddamned trailer they showed at comiccon. It's NOWHERE! Just the damned teaser that doesn't show anything. Giannt Monsters fighting giant robots, me wants me wants me wants!

Looks like Del Toro has debunked his involvement with this one, according to Crave Online and the Daily Blam!.....

Even though all of his time is now dedicated to finalizing and launching Pacific Rim ..... del Toro's name is constantly paired up with genre dream projects. From a Hulk sequel to a Constantine reboot and every other supernatural or superheroic title in between have come up, including Warner Bros' planned 2015 team-up Justice League which del Toro denies involvement in:
"No, no I'm not doing [that one]. Sometimes people come to me and say 'what do you think of this idea?' or 'would you be interested in this?' and others hear it, it gets exaggerated and that's how rumors start [laughs]. But there's no truth to them. I know of... a few interesting projects in the works but I am not attached to any right now."

Also:

Pietro Filipponi of The Daily Blam tweeted this morning: "Asked Guillermo Del Toro about the rumor he'll be directing a supernatural superhero movie for DC/WB, he said there is no truth to it at all." So there you go.
What's that film that you love?
What film?
The one about the fucking hairdresser, the space hairdresser and the cowboy. The guy, he's got a tin foil pal and a pedal bin. His father's a robot and he's fucking fucked his sister. Lego! They're all made of fucking lego.

that's the first time del toro has suggested he might not direct it.

but what's the point? i used to be excited about it but since it looks like the TV show is pointed in sort of the right direction, i'm afraid del toro's version will be with DC john. see, i still can't decide which is worse, DC john or Keanu john, which proves it's more than just "he's not british or blond". DC john is both and sucks more ass than a tapeworm.

I'm amazed the 3-headed craken never thought about puting Ragman in JLDark instead of our boy. It's not to late to make the trade

i do not think, that justice league dark per se was a bad idea. it was propably not the easiest cast to play with (since you know especially john, whom is the alleged star of the series, is not the kind of teamplayer you would need for a monthly title like this). but i think, that with a decent script, the thing could actually work and if it is better than keanusteen, i will watch it in the cinema, i will buy it on dvd, hell even it is just as good as keanusteen, i will. tbh i enjoyed the film more than the nu52 comics.

You know, if they could get John right, fuck all those other characters, but if they use Keanu again, then fuck Del Torro. John Constantine is the deal make or breaker there for me.

i heard del toro was looking at using matt ryan to portray john

I don't really like Matt's potrayal of John. I feel like he looks like someone else other than John. The cosplay is fine, it's just his face. I prefer the Sting look of John better. Or maybe it's his accent.

I want this guy to do John.

Also,

I hope I get to see mystical characters like Klarion, Dream, Cain and Abel..

what i wanna see?
a really hot zatanna and nightmare nurse,the house of mystery,the phantom-fucking-stranger ...somebody at least implying conjob goes both ways (not asking for him to do anything,hellblazer fans are still in denial...however defeating nick necro with a kiss and knife in the side would be awesome and so in character)

what they're gonna screw up
-deaman's possesion thing,shade the changing man,period,mindwarp (who i'm just unfamiliar with) and constantine ,zatanna and nick necro's awesome threeway love afair,crossover hell

what i expect?
-failure is the only option

if they could just pick a plot and do a horror story ,it could work out,also,we would need to break the movie down to at least two like the avengers to get this right with characters
