2015’s Jurassic World caught a lot of people by surprise when it made over $1.6 billion at the worldwide box office. J.A. Bayona has been hired to direct the sequel, and during a recent Reddit Q&A he revealed another big movie that he’d like to direct.
When asked what his dream movie would be to work on, the director said “Superman”:
“The first movie I saw in my life was Superman. I was three years old. The first memory I had was Christopher Reeve flying in the suit. Directing a Superman film would be great. I always wanted to be Superman. That’s the film that made me want to become a director.”
A solo Superman movie for Henry Cavill is confirmed to be in the works, and if Bayona’s Jurassic World sequel is as successful as its predecessor, I don’t think he’ll have any problem landing his dream directing job.
