    My choice is still Guillermo Del Toro. I hope he doesnt do PR 2 and make Aquaman instead.

    That was a joke. Honestly, I think we'll probably get someone like Peter Berg or Noam Murro to direct Aquaman.

    300 Rise of an Empire was basically the first 300 movie + green, blue and a bunch of water.

    There's a really good chance that Aquaman will go to Murro. Right now he's the most obvious choice given his connection to Snyder

    Honestly, I was pretty much thinking the exact same thing. Someone that is moldable enough to bend to what WB and Snyder want with the DC Cinematic Universe.

    Doug Liman would be good. He's got some experience with big films.
    For Aquaman, a total newbie director would be too risky.

    Marc Forster would be ok too.

    Francis Lawrence.

    Wanted him for WW, but I could see him working on Aquaman.

    I rented a copy of American Hustle last weekend. Pretty good film. Story, actors and the 70s setting/tone were all interesting.
    Why isn't David O. Russell in talks for any superhero film?

    Murro is a poor man's Zack Snyder (300: ROTE was nowhere near as visually impressive as the first one). So no to him.

    Lawrence could work. James Wan is supposedly talking to WB about directing a DC film. He could also be a decent choice.

    Francis, Murro and Duncan Jones would be good choices as well as perhaps Peter Berg.

    Judging Murro's talents based on a too late cash grab sequel seems...weird to me. And I don't necessarily want or not want him to do it I'm just saying that really wasn't his film now was it?

    Still I think he is near the top of WB's list, I mean he is writing one of the two scripts they will choose and the Snyder connection. The choice wouldn't be as interesting as Ayer or Maclaren so I'd overall like to see them go with someone else.

    I'd absolutely love Francis Lawrence to direct whatever he wanted to but he sounded pretty reluctant to get back into the comic book movie game, he didn't rule it out though. Gah, I for the life of me can't think of a director who'd be interesting and right for the material and is an actual possibility.
