    Maybe after the Reeves trilogy you can do one with Fourth World and Batman and call it FourthBat.

    I hope so. I had no interest in a New Gods film made by Ava Duvernay and Tom King.

    I liked a lot of the desigins in the Snyder Cut of Justice League, but would prefer somebody else than Snyder for a film like that.

    I loved Tom King’s Mister Miracle. It was a masterpiece. Admittedly, I’m not sure that would be what I would want for the movie, but I certainly prefer it’s tone to the one dimensional aspects that we got from our brief glimpse at the Fourth World from Snyder.

    A Fourth World film should be vibrant, with larger than life characters like the Forever People and Kanto and Vermin Vunderbaar.

    I think Duvernay and King would deliver that very well.

    I couldn't finish that Mister Miracle story.

    It would have to be somebody who really loves the Kirby characters to make that film. I think Robert Zemeckis or somebody like that might work for a project like that.

    I haven’t read his Mister Miracle but I thought The War of Jokes and Riddles was lame

    I’m a hater of War of Jokes and Riddles. But Mister Miracle is amazing. I also recommend Superman: Up in the Sky, which could be the best Superman story ever written. Also Tom King’s Omega Men story is superb.

    When he’s good, he’s great. I would definitely recommend those three stories to anyone who questions King’s writing based upon his controversial Batman run.

    Zemeckis would be great. Or Phil Lord and Chris Miller, or even Ron Howard.

    I’d want someone with an old soul who would see it as an over the top fantasy with an 80’s vibe to it. A less violent and less tongue in cheek tone/aesthetic of Turbo Kid

    Hush now, they might hear you! And remember that story arc where Batman ganked the Moebius Chair from Metron.

    *ahem*

    Snyder had nothing to do with this film. Despite Justice League, Aquaman and Wonder Woman was still their own thing.

    They should do a New Gods (or Fourth World) animated series.

    Yeah I know. I just wanted to point out that I would not want either Snyder or Duvernay/King for a movie about New Gods.
