- Rian Johnson - Batman. He's the perfect blend of Nolan's writing abilities and "grounded," noir sensibilities, but he also wouldn't shy away from the more fantastical side of Batman's universe.

-Alfonso Cuaron - Wonder Woman. I just really want to see Cuaron and his beautiful imagery take on Greek Mythology and blend it with our world. That guy has such an imagination and creates such rich, detailed worlds. WW's universe could be quite the creative playground for him.

-Duncan Jones - Superman or The Flash. I'm not a Zack Snyder fan, but I'm waiting to see how MoS turns out before I decide whether I want someone else taking over the franchise. At any rate, we know Duncan Jones was one of Nolan's favorites for the gig, and he took himself out of consideration for it at the time because he didn't think he was ready to handle something so big...yet. That tells me he'd never be interested in doing something so mammoth as JL, but might still consider a solo superhero one day. The Flash and Supes are both "sci-fi superheroes" and therefore seem to fit his sensibilities pretty well, imo. Flash is also a bit "smaller" in scale than Supes, so that could be the right one for him.

-Neill Blomkamp - Justice League. District 9 was the perfect combination of summer sci-fi action entertainment and real, human drama. He didn't shy away from comedic moments, but never undermined the heaviness of the story and its themes. It was an epic sci-fi story on a shoestring budget, blending elements which, by all rights, shouldn't have worked together. And Elysium sounds like it's gonna be even more epic. If it turns out as awesome as everyone's hoping, I really hope WB will look at him for this. JL, like Avengers, is a very tricky thing to make work, and I think Blomkamp is one of the few who could really pull it off.

Of course, my top pick for JL remains Brad Bird, but if he's really not an option anymore, these 4 genre directors are some of the most exciting in the industry at the moment, imo, and I'd love to see any or all of them contribute to this franchise at some point.




Brad Bird should be #1 on WB's list to direct JL.

If Bird can't be had, then I hope they go with Cuaron, Del Toro, or Jones.

That has a chance of happening actually, with Birds connections with Pixar and now Disney.

Guillermo Del Toro would be a good fit as a Star Wars director and it would be interesting to see what James Cameron would be able to with directing a Star Wars film.

According to recent rumors, director David Yates may not be free for a JL movie as he would be involved with Tarzan movie project, also there is a rumor that director Brett Ratner will be directing a movie based on Hercules starring Dwayne Johnson, if true both directors (and Ben Affleck. ) can be safely ruled out from the list of potential directors for the JL movie.

Sorta, but Snyder is wildly inconsistent with the projects he does. Folks like Whedon, Nolan, Raimi, Abrams, et al have a consistent tone and approach to things. MOS feels greatly removed from the overblown visuals of 300 or Sucker Punch. It's like a whole new director is in charge of MOS, not Snyder.

I've never read an interview where Snyder professed his love for the Justice League... if there is, I haven't read it. JL honestly needs something visionary from a up-and-coming director, and something with passion.

Example: If you ignore the shortcomings of Snow White and the Huntsman (the director's affair with Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron's overacting and the inconsistent script), Rupert Sanders did quite a good job establishing a tone and look. It's all the more impressive considering it's his first feature film. But a good director can only go so far if the script and casting are lacking.

Indeed. The guy came out of frickin nowhere. Most directors would kill to make something that impressive on their first go.

On Sam Mendes, before seeing Skyfall I would probably have said "no way not in a million years I'm in no mood for a hundred million dollar thinkpiece by some artiste with a gold statue", or something to that effect, but now...yeah, put him on the list.

I'd say the opposite; the effectiveness of Skyfall, and the fact that Sam Mendes cites the Dark Knight films as a big influence, demonstrates that Nolan has successfully influenced a generation of filmmakers, even ones like Mendes who hit their stride before he did. Nolan doesn't need to do everything, and he never did.

Neil Blomkamp as director (at least if Elysium lives up to District 9) and Jackson or Spielberg as producer. Some Joss Whedon-guy as screenwriter.

How about Kirsten Stewart being in the film as a shortcoming? All the suspension of disbelief in the world couldn't make me believe she was the fairest of them all..

This sounds stupid, real stupid but what has Spielberg done to deserve this project? Surely someone with a background in superhero films/TV should get first shout?

Let's see how MOS does first - we may not need a new director.

Richard Donner? Tim Burton? Joel Schumacher? Ang Lee? Sam Raimi? Tim Story? Martin Campbell?

TheBat447: Christopher Nolan! But's he's the least likely of them to take the director's chair for JL. Other directors then?
Bryan Singer is already out because of his upcoming involvement with Fox/X-Men. And the guys behind the Marvel Studio films can't even be considered, I guess.

Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Indiana Jones franchise, E.T., Empire of the Sun, Hook, Jurassic Park, A.I., Minority Report, War of the Worlds, Tintin, and also a bunch of drama films
Blood-thirsty sea life, friendly aliens, heroic adventures, war, fantasy characters, ancient giant creatures, high tech/futurism, invasion from space, comic book adaption.... all of them more or less obvious keywords for Justice League. How could Spielberg not deserve this?

Um, he's one of the greatest directors of our era? I'd rather have him than some hack who worked on Smallville or FF4. The logic of this argument fails and fails miserably.

Spielberg wouldn't see it as much of a creative challenge or something he wants to work on. It'd be a huge coup and would certainly pique interest.

Plus, Spielberg runs a tight ship. A Spielberg-directed JL film would be in the can well before release, and he'd make it on budget.

Batman, Superman and a bunch of other superheroes - he's never done anything even related to any of them. He's a great director - that is undisputed, but surely someone deserves it more? Maybe deserves isn't even the right choice of words but surely my point is coming across? ... I hope.

I'd prefer to see him work on a Marvel film, as I've previously mentioned that I'd hate JL to be based too much on fantasy (apart from the obvious superhero vs villain story)

I'm struggling to explain myself here so here's an example - I'm a HUGE Hitchcock fan but would never have wanted to see him do Batman (etc)

I probably should have used a more suitable word than "deserves", see my previous post.

I don't know about the people above me, but I suggested Spielberg as a producer. I think that is the only realistic use of people like him, Jackson and Cameron. But something like that would give the projects a lot of safety, both production-wise and from the executive suits' perspective.

Cameron wont do it he has 2 avatar movies to do but if he did he would do a brilliant job.

Peter Jackson would only do it if his wife fran walsh and phillipa boyen write the script. Those 3 are a team i cant see Peter Jackson doing any movie without those 2.
