It’s pretty apparent that Superhero films are the wave right now, and many directors are trying to get a piece of the action by picking up heroes to bring to the big screen, and that includes The Neon Demon and Drive Director Nicolas Refn.
Refn has constantly been rumored to be taking on some high-profile projects countless times, but he’s never actually taken on a big franchise film. Looks like he wants to change that though. In an interview with Business Insider , Refn discussed his desire to director a Superhero film, first asking “What ones are left?”, then staying “You know the one I want to do? I want to make Batgirl. Let’s get Warner working on it.” He then speaks on why he would be interested in making a high-budget superhero film in contrast to the type of films he usually works on:
“God, I would love to make one, it would probably be great fun. I just don’t know when it’s going to happen. I very much enjoy my freedom creatively, but I also would love to make one of those big Hollywood films that costs a lot of money and has a lot of people running around with cell phones and all that insanity.”
