    There were rumors last November that director Guillermo del Toro and Warner Bros were eying an Avengers style team-up film joining the forces of DC's supernatural heroes and now not only do we have a confirmation the movie is in the works, but also a working title and some info on which DC heroes will be included on the roster. IGN sat down with del Toro and asked him about the rumored team-up that was being called "Heaven Sent". Del Toro said quote, "Yeah, I'm doing it...I'm writing the outline and are in talks with...a very good writer. I think people are going to be happy with who we have chosen." He wouldn't reveal who the writer is, but did say he has been courting him for quite some time and is confident he is the perfect person to pen the script. As for what the movie will be called, del Toro said the working title is "Dark Universe" and will for sure include Swamp Thing, Constantine, Dead Man, Spectre and Zatanna Zatara. He wouldn't give away any more than that insisting if he did it would hint at the plot of the movie, suggesting they will be looking to the comics as source material for the storyline. So when can we expect to see Dark Universe on the big screen? Though Del Toro insists that they are in the process of developing the story and writing the script, they have not received an official greenlight from the studio, but he says Warner Bros is looking to build a cohesive universe with their DC characters and now have a strong foundation with Batman and Superman that they can build upon and continue to make movies with a darker tone then their rival Marvel. So are you excited to hear Dark Universe is officially moving forward and which character are you most excited to see on the big screen? Give us your thoughts below or over on Twitter @ClevverMovies.
