Another unlikely choice but as one of my favorite filmmakers, Sir Ridley needed a place on this list. Big budget epics are run of the norm for Mr. Scott and being handed a $200 million plus allowance for a large scale film like Batman could result in something wondrous.
Scott is also a very deep and thoughtful filmmaker, giving us films with tons of substance, subtext and analogy, something that Nolan did in some capacity with his trilogy but something that Scott could do much better.
As a world builder, Scott is king and to see him construct Gotham City would be a real treat. On a visual level alone it would fascinate. Think of the dark, dystopic world in Blade Runner and imagine how something like that could play out in the Caped Crusader’s next adventure. Oh the things he could do.
In case you haven’t seen Scott’s latest film, Prometheus, we’ve embedded the trailer below for your viewing pleasure.
So there you have it, ten directors that I’d love to see helm the next Batman film. What do you think? Agree or disagree?Previous
