Re: A New Director After Nolan?
Guillermo del Toro would be cool, though I don't care for a lot of the villains that he'd excel at realizing: Clayface, Killer Croc, Man-Bat. They're a bit one note, and too much like Spider-Man villains (science experiments gone awry). They're more physical than psychological. I think the psychological villains are what sets Batman's rogue gallery far above the rest.
I'd want someone who could amp up the psychology and mystery element, and really bring out the detective in Batman.
Just a few ideas...
