Peter Jackson-Swamp Thing
Tarantino- Wolverine
Spielberg- Captain America
Besson-Silver Surfer
Toney Scott- Punisher

Why Besson on Surfer?

And why Jackson on swamp thing?

I'd almost rather see him go with a heavy hitter character or team.

i think Jackson's penchant for grossing people out would work well with Swamp Thing. and with his close association with WETA, and remembering the work they did with the Ents, that makes him the best choice as a name director doing Swamp Thing, imo. i didn't read a whole lot of comics as a kid, and mostly read DD, but always got a kick out of Swamp Thing.

as for Besson making Silver Surfer, its just a gut feeling i guess, a hunch, though the 5th Element comes to mind as his past work as a reason, that he would give it a look and feel that would set it apart from other comic movies and he has a real ability to put a lot of heart and soul into his pictures that would meld well with Silver Surfer.

I love Besson, and would love to see what he would do with it, but I would have put Jackson on Surfer before Besson even came to mind. Now that you mention it, I would get all psyched up over that.

I would have put Besson on Daredevil before anything, and forget MSJ did that affleck movie.

When Ben Edlund started writing for various Whedon shows, it hit me that I'd love to see Whedon direct a movie version of the Sonnefeld produced live action Tick. With superhero movies coming back in vogue, The Tick is more ripe for production than ever, though I imagine there's already a deluge of parodies on the way, but c'mon, I wanna see it, just for Warburton and those antennas (and Batmanuel!).

you know what, i think the director's cut edition of DD is a decent movie, but i also like your idea of Besson doing a DD movie too. he has the right kind of sensibility to do DD justice, imo. nice call.

John Landis needs to get in the game too. He could have done spidey good I think, but it's a bit late for that, but if Rammi leaves Landis needs to step in.

I also think He could take over the FF and make a big improvement. Because the guy can make a light hearted feel with interesting characters you care about and keep it entertaining.

Maybee Marvel could talk him into doing the Avengers, or the next Hulk, seeing him do Hulk 2 would kick ass.

Iron Man: James Cameron, obviously. Only a gadget geek could make Iron Man right


Agent X: my personal favorite humor comic from recent years, and I think with a script by Gail Simone, Kurt Wimmer ("Equilibrium", "Ultraviolet") would be perfect. Simone could write the perfect satire of action movies using this character.


And the only GL movie I want to see is either hand or CGI, and directed by Brad Bird.

I would have loved to see Fantastic Four done by Brad Bird, all CGI. That's what I wish he did instead of Incredibles.

Spielberg directing The Adventures of Tom Strong – great franchise potential. Needs to be done camp, fun, and just like the books.

David Lynch directing Gregory – ‘nuff said

Jared Hess directing Dan Clowes’ 8-Ball – collection of interwoven shorts

|I feel it would be a great move to get Spielberg to breath lifeinto an existing Franchise. I know he would never pick up a sequel at this point, and possibly feels above that, but I would stand to see him direct Spidey after Rami leaves, or The next Hulk. He could make a decend film, we know that, and it would Bring alot of hype and attention that a sequel would not otherwise recieve.

Sorry for making a Lazarus out of this thread, but I was just thinking about it and wanted to put some of my ideas down somwhere. Most of these are series I'm reading or read recently

Ronin directed by Darren Aronofsky- not very original considering he was lined up to direct this, but I think it would work well

The Walking Dead- hmmm... this is a tough one.. my initial thought was Innaritu because of his penchant for ensembles.. but I dont think his directing style would work well... maybe PTA?? weird choice but who knows...

Bones directed by Peter Jackson

Lone Wolf and Club or The Punisher directed by John Hillcoat and written by Nick Cave

Elephantmen directed by David Fincher or Rian Johnson

The Eternals by Mel Gibson???

Fear Agent by Geuijust to see

Avengers- J.J. Abrams

Preacher- Andrew Dominik

Venture Bros. by Wes Anderson- yeah its a cartoon, by I heard Publick say this is who he would want to direct it and think its perfect.

I think a paul greengrass superhero movie would be pretty cracking, maybe something like the punisher would have been a good shout...

J.J.Abrams would also make a good director for the genre too so good work alex...

David Slade Discusses ‘Complex’ ‘Daredevil’ Reboot that Never Happened
Hannah Shaw-Williams wrote:This time last year, Twentieth Century Fox’s reboot of Daredevil still appeared to be on track, albeit with a few wobbling wheels, to head into production within a few months. Talk of a reboot began with Frank Miller and Jason Statham expressing an interest, and Hitman director Xavier Gens later tried pitching the project with Sam Worthington pencilled in to play the lead. Fox, who still owned the rights to the character since producing the Ben Affleck-led version in 2003, began turning the gears on a reboot a few years ago in order to ensure that Matt Murdock remained their property.

Fox chose David Slade – director of the gruesome, low-budget thriller Hard Candy and comic book adaptation Thirty Days of Night – to direct the project early on, and Slade was attached for a couple of years before scheduling conflicts forced him to walk away from the Daredevil reboot. The Grey director Joe Carnahan later made a sizzle reel to pitch his own reboot to Fox, but by that point the studio had lost their temporarily renewed interest in using the property. With the various delays and changing of hands, Fox eventually missed their fall 2012 deadline to begin production on the film, and the rights reverted back to Marvel in October.

The Daredevil reboot might happen one day, but Fox’s hand in it – along with Slade’s version of the film – are officially done. The good news is that this leaves Slade free to share details on the Daredevil movie that might have been, and in an interview with Film School Rejects he teases that it would have been everything the comic book fans wanted to see:
“[I saw it as] really complex and exciting. It was complicated [Laughs], and in the most unimaginable Fox way possible … It’s in the 70s, Kingpin is going through New York dealing with the Irish mafia, and there’s Daredevil in the yellow suit. It was all there!”

The yellow suit mentioned was part of Daredevil’s original design when the character debuted in 1964 (and was later revisited for Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale’s Daredevil: Yellow), but it lasted for only a few issues before Matt Murdock began donning the better-known red suit, modelled by Affleck in Mark Steven Johnson’s film. From the way he describes it, Slade’s Daredevil movie sounds like it would have enjoyed a similar tone to Carnahan’s sizzle reel, which had a very retro feel and integrated classic 1970s songs like “Superfly” into its ultra-violent action. Slade also commented on the similarities:
“It’s funny, I remember Joe Carnahan went after it hard when the rights were about to go. He cut together that thing that was great and exciting, but it was kind of sad, in a way, because everything in that trailer we had attempted to do [Laughs]. Every single thing.”

From the way Slade describes it, it seems as though the Daredevil reboot suffered through the same struggles that have been plaguing the (hopefully) forthcoming Deadpool movie: a darker, more complex, and potentially R-rated plot that would have represented a risk for the studio. The script, which was based on Frank Miller’s often-brutal “Born Again” story arc, underwent an attempted rewrite shortly before Slade left the project, and Carnahan’s pitch included a second sizzle reel titled “Daredevil NC-17“, which featured a greater volume of bloody violence.

With Daredevil back in Marvel’s hands and no current plans from the studio to attempt another movie based on the comic books, Slade has accepted that his shot at presenting the yellow-suited “Man Without Fear” in the planned period setting has been and gone:
“[I'm] moving forward, yeah. You have to. If you don’t, you’ll just go crazy.”

Does hearing about Slade’s originals plans make you sorry to see the Daredevil reboot die? Which actor should have played the starring role, and who should have played the Kingpin? Share your thoughts in the comments.
