    Superman. Given his fascination with Superman Returns (we're still waiting on that essay, Quen) it would be interesting to see his take on a Superman film. It may end up being a complete disaster, but it would be fascinating just to see into his mindset about the Man of Steel.

    Looking forward to his response to the upcoming film.

    Coen Brothers doing a Deadpool film would be quite a sight. Or how about this; Woody Allen.

    Refn for Dr Strange? Could be interesting.

    I don't know about all three, but for Quentin Tarantino...he should make a Heroes For Hire film.

    Fellini's a tough one. I have to think more about him.

    Leone - Wolverine (especially considering how big an influence Clint Eastwood was on the character)
    Ingmar Bergman - Batman comes to mind instantly for me.

    Hughes - Spider-Man
    Robert Zemeckis - either Captain America, The Phantom, or the Shadow
    Joe Dante - Gotta think about more
    Ron Howard - Captain Marvel
    George Lucas - Green Lantern

    I immediately think of Spider-Man when I read Robert Zemeckis' name...he could probably make a great Spidey film.

    Yeah, but since I used Spider-Man already I didn't want to be redundant. :funny:

    Quentin Tarantino: Deadpool, mix kill Bill with Django Unchained and you have a fine formula there. 4th wall breaking should be subtle if applied, only looking a little at the direction of the camera
    Ang Lee: Iron Fist feels like a decent idea. Spawn might work fine under his guidance
    Steven Spielberg: Captain America
    John Carpenter: Blade, or Judge Dredd

    I think maybe the role should go to someone else, Ryan Gosling maybe since I thought he should play Snake in the possible remake/prequel to EFNY

    Winding Refn expressed great interest in doing Wonder Woman at one point. Dunno if that's been mentioned.

    Though personally I think he's PERFECT for the Daredevil reboot. The guy has a real thing for the color red. I could totally see a blood red-soaked Hell's Kitchen with the style of storytelling we saw in Drive mixed with the gang violence/grittiness of the Pusher movies. And even though I've been told every time i bring it up on here that he would never do a comic book movie, Gosling would be a great Murdock and he's worked with Winding Refn twice now.

    A guy can dream.

    They'd all be wasting their time more or less but probably...

    Quentin Tarantino- Nick Fury
    Nicholas Winding Refn- The Punisher (forget Tarantino, NWR would do a great Punisher)
    David O'Russell- Superman? Daredevil? O'Russel never left a significant impact on me.

    Paul Thomas Anderson- Batman. He's a big fan of Nolan's series and two themes that constantly appear in his films, father/son relationships and troubled/haunted pasts, could be incorporated in to a Batman film very interestingly. Obviously, Bruce's past has shaped in many ways, but the most obvious thing is the death of his parents lead to him becoming Batman. We could get great father/son type moments between Alfred and Bruce, and/or Gordon and Bruce and even better, how about Batman and Robin!? He could even deal with a similar theme from 'Magnolia' about parents using their children and have some real good commentary about the psychological ramifications of a guy training a young boy and putting him in danger every night by taking him out to fight crime.

    Martin Scorcese or Ben Affleck- Both of these guys could do Daredevil. Scorcese's Catholic past and his constant themes from this in his earlier films would fit wonderfully with Daredevil. His love for crime dramas also would fit great with Daredevil and Kingpin. Similar situation with Affleck. We know he loves the character. He's shown he can direct good crime dramas and Affleck's love for the character could be better for the film as a director than an actor because he'll actually be in charge.

    Quentin Tarantino Deadpoool. Tarantino's love for violence and humor fits Deadpool so perfectly I can't believe I've never thought of this before. It could definitely have a similar tone to the Kill Bills.

    STEVEN SPIELBERG Captain America or Superman. Spielberg's all-american, old fashion, hopefulness seen in many of his earlier films that he attributes to watching John Ford films as a child, would be perfect for both of these characters. His great ability to create period pieces, specifically WWII, would make him a prime candidate for a Captain America WWII film.

    Nicolas Winding Refn This may be a little strange for some, but I think he'd be great with Spiderman. I really thought he handled the love story in Drive really well and he did a great job creating this hero who didn't really seem confident, yet he was a badass. Not exactly Peter Parker, but I think he could channel more of that non-confident hero to the Parker scenes and a cocky, funny Spiderman in costume.
