Early buzz for The LEGO Batman Movie indicates that it’s going to be a big hit with critics and the box office, and director Chris McKay already has his sights on his next project.
On Twitter this evening, a fan said that he’d love for McKay to direct a live-action movie in the DC Extended Universe. “It’s a long shot but I’d like to be a part of it somehow,” McKay replied.
The fan followed up and asked if he could start a petition to DC Films co-head Geoff Johns to help make that a reality. McKay politely declined, but said he plans on meeting with Johns and making a pitch for a movie in the DCEU.
Thanks! That's nice @Mighty_Icon but I'm going to go in and see those guys and pitch myself and go from there…but thank you!

The Flash script is currently being rewritten and is in need of a director. McKay is best known for his animated work, but maybe he’d be a good fit there. Would you like to see McKay direct a live-action movie in the DCEU? Let me know in the comments below.
