Previous cack-handed adaptations of Swamp Thing and Constantine proved what tricky prospects these characters are movie-wise. But if anyone can get the Vertigo stable just right it's Del Toro. I'll believe it when I see it, mind. When it comes to announcing movies that don't happen, he's worse than Matthew Vaughn - they don't call him Benny The Bull for nothing!

(Paul Bettany for John Constantine, BTW. Could just be the breakthrough role he's been waiting for... )

i think del toro will use his 'blade'/''hellboy' villain as constantine.

I'd love to see a decent Hellblazer movie. Maybe that will be the first step in getting some of the more difficult projects (ie: The Sandman) off the ground, too.

Sandman's too vast for a film IMO. I'd prefer to see a proper fleshed out version of him on the small screen rather than a shitty condensed Hollywoodised version of him on the big screen. Unfortunately the budget required to bring the dreamworld to the small screen would be to prohibitive I fear.

I wonder if there's a chance Scott Snyder will be in any way involved with the writing of this. His work on Swamp Thing over the last year has been stunning. It's pretty unlikely though, he's got a pretty packed schedule these days I imagine.

Yeah, Snyder's got both Superman and Batman now (he's just given up Swamp Thing, I believe). He's doing extraordinary work with Batman.

My ideal vision of The Sandman as movies would be an approach that Warner Bros. would probably be crazy to undertake, but I cling to hope.
