Following the release of Wonder Woman, many are wondering what creative decisions the DC Extended Universe will make next. And apparently, one fan-favorite director, Baby Driver's Edgar Wright, could potentially come on board.
When asked by ScreenGeek.Net if he would take on a DC Extended Universe film, Wright didn't rule out the possibility.
"I don’t know." Wright explained. "I’m really not too familiar with their heroes, so I couldn’t say which one I would do."
Wright has developed a cult following with films such as Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. As many fans will remember, Wright had a significant hand in developing and directing Marvel's Ant-Man, only to leave the project due to creative differences.
While it appears that Wright doesn't have a clear preference for which film he would direct, fans have been throwing his name into the mix for quite some time, for everything from The Flash to Booster Gold to an adaptation of Doom Patrol.
