A few years ago, director James McTeigue helmed an adaptation of Alan Moore and David Lloyd’s V For Vendetta and in recent months, there’s been talk of Warner Bros. maybe getting him to tackle one of their DC superheroes.
When ComingSoon.net recently spoke to him about his new movie Ninja Assassin which opens next Wednesday, November 25, we did broach the subject, and while he was non-committal about even preferring to work with one DC character over another, he did share some interesting thoughts on the subject of superhero movies:
ComingSoon.net: Over the last few months, there’ve been rumors about you being in talks with Warner Bros. about doing some superhero stuff. Is that something you’ve been seriously considering or would that not be possible if you do those other movies?
CS: Are there any you’d be interested in? “V For Vendetta” was based on a DC graphic novel (sort of) but it wasn’t superheroes and it was outside that world, it was its own thing. But a movie based on one of DC’s superheroes would involve a lot more history.
CS: I guess what’s happening after last year with “Iron Man” and “The Dark Knight,” everyone is waiting to see what the next big comic book movie is going to be. Those were so good that it created a watermark that will be hard for anything after that.
