    I think Gareth Edwards would be a fantastic choice for obvious reasons.

    Nia DaCosta? Director of Little Woods, a neo-western starring Tessa Thompson and Lily James. It got a bit of praise and she’ll be helming the upcoming Candyman reboot under Jordan Peele.

    Horror cred.

    Either that (someone fitting the Marvel mold of directors) or something crazy like Mahershala convincing Barry Jenkins to come aboard.

    Jordan has sadly said he wouldn’t direct it. What a shame.

    What about Hiro Murai. Oh my gosh that would be so good!

    What about Jennifer Kent? I'm not familiar with her work but her movies Babadook and Nightingale seem to have received good reviews from the critics.

    Love del toro but not for this. I don't want his beutiful/ugly imagery for this. Would prefer vampires to be more like from interview with the vampire than anything like the strain. Jordan peele maybe, but us was well made but a bad story. The story doesn't have to be overcomplicated. Just need someone that can tell it well, make it look good with nice action and lots of tension.

    Spike Lee should do it. He could give it the NYC attitude and bloodlust that it deserves. Him and Feige together could be good.

    I wouldn't be opposed to Leitch, obviously he does action really well.

    Salim Akil is another good choice, but he's probably all sewn up with Black Lightning.

    I don't want to take too bold and definitive a stance on these sort of things because you never really know, but... I just can't see that happening.

    Agree. Spike wants an oscar and it is highly doubtful the academy will award one to a superhero film, no matter how good.
