Mission: Impossible – Fallout director Christopher McQuarrie passed on directing Green Lantern Corps. last year, but perhaps he has his eyes on Superman instead.
A fan recently asked McQuarrie on Twitter if he’d want to direct the next Superman movie, and he replied “They know where to find me.” ComicBook caught up with McQuarrie at CinemaCon this week and asked how real of a possibility him directing Man of Steel 2 would be, and what his Superman would be like.
“Henry Cavill knows what it would be like. We had a a lot of time hanging out on set, and Henry’s a huge fan of Superman,” McQuarrie told ComicBook. “I can’t help but talk story to people, so he told me his take on Superman and I thought it was really great, and I gave him my two cents. The tweet you’re referring to is somebody asked ‘Would you do it?’ and I said ‘Hey, they know where to find me.’ Nobody’s asked, but you know…”
When a fan on Twitter mentioned this story to him, McQuarrie replied “it’s a great idea…”.
McQuarrie is a writer as well as a director, and it sounds like he’d be down to make the version of Man of Steel 2 that he and Cavill discussed on the set of Mission: Impossible – Fallout. Do you think he’d be a good choice? Let me know in the comments below.
Thanks to Batman News reader Roger for the heads up!
