Guillermo Del Toro Says He Would Love To Make HEAVEN SENT; Denies Debunking Rumor
Recently it was reported that Guillermo del Toro was negotiating with Warner Bros. to make a team-up film featuring Swamp Thing, Deadman, and a bunch of lesser known characters from DC Comics. Today, Guillermo replied to a tweet that seemed to imply that he had no interest in the project.
Two days ago Latino-Review posted a story claiming that Guillermo del Toro and Warner Bros. were closing in on a deal that would see the Hellboy director put together his own supernatural Avengers-like team. It would feature a lot of DC Comics' second tier characters: Swamp Thing, Deadman, The Spectre, Constantine Hellblazer, Phantom Stranger, Zatanna, Zatara, Sargon, and Etrigan the Demon.
Sounds almost too good to be true, so it comes as no surprise that several sites immediately thought a tweet from Pietro Filipponi was accurate and re-posted it.
Guillermo was then made aware of these comments on his official fansite, and had a reply.
"Wow- please contact whoever said I denied it. I cannot recall ever answering a question like that. Sadly I dont do tweeter. I denied being involved in JLA but this I would love to do!!!" - Guillermo del Toro
Another bit of news in all of this, is that Pietro followed that tweet by saying that he would be posting a full interview on Monday that he conducted with Guillermo. So, if del Toro can't remember answering a question about Heaven Sent, which could have only come within the past day or two, one has to wonder... I'll guess we'll find out on Monday.
Update: Pietro has clarified that the tweet is referring to an interview he had with Guillermo at New York Comic-Con. The tweet does not refer to Latino-Review's recent scoop.
