Director of Looper might direct the next Batman Reboot. Click the jump to read more.
Director of the recent sci-fi movie, Looper, along with Brick and The Brothers Bloom, Rian Johnson was asked if he would be interested in directing the next Batman reboot. Here’s what he had to say about directing the reboot:
I like that hypothetical. You know I love Batman, I didn’t grow up reading the comics but Batman movies, when that first Tim Burton Batman movie came out that kind of defined, in kind of like a weird way for the generation that I was in, that first Batman movie in a way it defined what a blockbuster was for me, more so than any of the 70s movies. When that first Batman movie hit it was like this cultural volcano that defined what the superhero blockbuster was in a way that was just completely drew me in as a kid. So Batman is definitely the one superhero movie franchise that I’m 100% just completely in love with, and I love [Christopher] Nolan’s so much man.
Right now I’m just focusing on doing my own thing. And that hypothetical that you mentioned has so many variables to it in terms of what kind of movie they’re looking to make and all of that so, you know, that call hasn’t happened and in the meanwhile I’m not gonna sit by the phone, I’m just gonna keep writing my own stuff.
Truth be told, I’m a fan of his movie Brick. I totally loved it, Johnson has a way of conveying noir in today’s time. Even Looper was a success showing off his directing mastery. Since Johnson is a fan of Batman, I’m sure he would a good choice to direct the movie as long as he has a good script with a decent storytelling. I wouldn’t mind watching his Batman reboot. Since he has done two movies starring Jospeh Gordon Levitt, maybe he might pick up where Christopher Nolan left off. Well…maybe not but we can have high hopes! Alas, Johnson doesn’t want to direct the next Batman reboot at the moment. Sadness…
