‘LEGO Batman Movie’ Director Wants to Do A DCEU Film

Chris McKay, director of The LEGO Batman Movie revealed on Twitter that he would be interested in directing a live-action DC Extended Universe movie.

When taking questions from fans on Twitter, McKay responded to one fan @Mighty_Icon’s tweet suggesting that he would love to see McKay direct a DCEU movie in the near future. To which McKay tweeted back:

As amazing as it would be to see McKay – who also directed episodes of Robot Chicken – direct a comedy-driven DCEU movie, it is implied that is probably not going to happen. Still, that has not stopped @Mighty_Icon from starting a petition to give McKay a DCEU project. McKay then tweeted back:

So far, the DCEU has a couple of movies that have no directors attached to them. Among them are The Flash, Cyborg, and Shazam. Perhaps McKay could helm one of those films. Personally, an action-comedy Shazam movie by McKay sounds pretty awesome.

The LEGO Batman Movie comes out in theaters February 10, 2017.
