Now most of you probably already know about this because I do believe that it is actually old news but I have only just become aware of it. Apparently, a while back, Man of Steel director Zack Snyder claimed that he would love to make a Batman movie.
However, don’t get your hopes up that it will be any time soon, as he would have his sights set on making a Batman movie based on the story The Dark Knight Returns. This is the story of an aging Batman in his 50s, coming out of retirement to take on Harvey Dent and his new evil gang of mutants.
Snyder is quoted as saying, “Frank’s Dark Knight is a 50-year-old Batman. The reality is that Batman, as a franchise at Warner Brothers, is doing pretty good; people have heard of it. Chris is killing it to death. It will be only 20 years from now, and it’ll be Christian Bale in his 50s. By then, Chris will be over it and I’ll roll up and be like, ‘Let’s make a Dark Knight movie!’”
The possibility of Zack Snyder directing a Batman movie would have many fans excited, although many will also claim that nobody will ever do a better job than Christopher Nolan. However, in 20 years time, a Zack Snyder Batman movie could be just what is needed. We will have to just wait and see. Arriba!!
