George Miller Rumoured For ‘The Batman’

At one point, Ben Affleck (good director!) was attached to direct a standalone Batman movie.  However after he was apparently unhappy with the script, he has now dropped out.  Now new names have been spoken off as on a short list to direct instead.

Matt Reeves (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), Gavin O’Connor (The Accountant), Matt Ross (Captain Fantastic), and two very high profile names – Denis Villeneuve (Arrival) and…

… genius auteur George Miller (Mad Max Fury Road).

So, I don’t know, maybe after all these years of fatigue, one of the best directors can make a cool comic book movie using one of the darkest and most interesting characters.
