What Superhero movies would you have these directors make?
 
Let's play a game. Someone puts a director up, and others post what superheroes or superhero groups they would best for. Any Superhero is elgbible. If it's a director who already made a superhero movie, post a movie that doesn't have the character the director made (Ex: No Nolan for Batman or Justice League).

Okay, so to start, I'll post a few directors:

Quentin Tarantino
Nicholas Winding Refn
David O'Russell

Quentin Tarantino's The Spectre.
NWR's Dr Strange
David O'Russell's Daredevil or Iron Fist


I'd like to see Ang Lee tackle another superhero movie than Hulk.
Any ideas?

Tarantino...hmm...tough one. His style doesn't really lend itself to the big colorful explosiveness generally expected from a superhero film. I'll have to give this one some more thought.

As for the other two, I could easily see either of them taking on the Punisher quite well. Perhaps Daredevil too, or similar 'street level' heroes.

EDIT: I'll just point out real quick that I hadn't seen gwynplaine's post when I posted mine, great minds think alike!

I think he's very big on philosophy, and his style of filmmaking (this is no bearing on race) consists of eastern storytelling tropes. I think he'd do really well with Batman.

I actually think Tarantino would do the best with a Daredevil movie. I'd pay to see that, even if he does change stuff around.

Refn I could see with the Punisher.

O'Russell I honestly can see him doing great with a big screen Green Arrow movie. He loves doing political stories with a twist (like with three Kings, his cancelled project Nailed, and his upcoming movie), along with what he's been doing lately is family drama, which even though it isn't in the comics as much it's in the tv show arrow. I think Green Arrow would be the best character for him.

After watching Life of Pi for the 2nd time today, I would really love to see Ang Lee, an exceptional director, return to the superhero genre. And I like the Batman idea:up:


Let's make this fun, how about Steven Spielberg?:woot:

Eddie Dean 01-06-2013 10:12 PM

Re: What Superhero movies would you have these directors make?
 
The obvious choice for Spielberg is Captain Amierca. Or Superman.

Can we do dead directors?

Sam Peckinpah
Akira Kurosawa
Robert Aldrich
Mario Bava
Fritz Lang

What Eddie Dean said. Captain America or Superman. They're the too most sentimental heroes.

Oh, what could have been if Spielberg accepted to do Superman back in the 70s.

Yes dead directors too.

Peckinpah would do an awesome Wolverine
Kurososawa would've also done a great Wolverine
Fritz Lang I can see making X-Men
Bava's pretty obvious: Blade
Aldrich I can see making a Nick Fury and the Commandos movie.

Eddie Dean 01-06-2013 11:56 PM

Re: What Superhero movies would you have these directors make?
 
Todd Browning's magnus opus would have been a silent Batman starring Douglas Fairbanks as Batman and Lon Chaney as The Joker.

How about David Lynch or Cronenberg?

Am I the only one who thinks Tarantino could make a pretty great Punisher movie? I actually thought that to myself in to the theater while watching Django unchained...

I can kinda see it... Just with Tarantinos style it be like 10 minutes of dialogue with the punisher telling the villan why he gonna kill him.

Also,
Akira Kurosawa probably would have made the perfect Wolverine movie.

Also, David Lynch? He'd be perfect for something like Doom Patrol.
