Last month a reliable source said that after the Steven Spielberg news, another big director was in talks to join the DC Extended Universe. Today, we may have the name of that big director.
TheOneRing.net says that The Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson is currently thinking about what his next project will be. His choices? A Middle-earth series for Amazon or something in the DCEU.
Decisions are being made by Peter Jackson and his NZ crew:

Jackson would certainly fit the “big director” title that was rumored for DC. But it gets better. After this news broke late last night, @DanielRPK, the reliable source who told us a big director was in talks with DC, said that two more big names could follow.
Not just one, now there are three big name directors that could join the DCEU.
Only one of them is as big as Spielberg tho. At least in my opinion.

Obviously this is all just rumor and speculation right now but if even some of it becomes true there will be good times ahead for the DC Extended Universe.
Would you like Peter Jackson to make a DC movie? Who do you think the other two directors could be? Let me know in the comments below.
