Last month, The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? filmmaker Jon Schnepp reported that he had heard through the Hollywood grapevine that Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller would helm the Man of Steel sequel. And now Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder, who directed Henry Cavill in his first Superman solo film, says he hasn't spoken with Miller yet, but would love to see him contribute to the DC Cinematic Universe.
"No one would say that the best movie of the year isn't Fury Road," Snyder told news.com.au. "It's just a f***ing great movie. George doing one of the DC movies? Oh my God, absolutely. George can do anything he wants, in my opinion."
In 2007, Miller was set to direct a Justice League movie for Warner Bros., but numerous reasons halted that production. It would be nice to see him finally get to make a comic book movie, especially after Fury Road proved that the 70-year-old director has plenty of gas left in the tank.
In Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City's own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis's most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it's ever known before.
Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice opens March 25, 2016.
