'John Wick' Directors May Direct DC Movie, Jason Todd Story-line In 'Batman V. Superman'?

By Matt O'Bryant

Hello Everyone,

Yesterday we got two great scoops involving DC from our friends over at Latino-Review , first about the possible inclusion of the Jason Todd/Redhood and Batman story-line being part of Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice and also the greater DC Cinematic Universe.  Second was that Chad Stahelski and David Leitch are being courted to direct a DC film:

No word yet on which film the guys over at DC want the John Wick directors to make, but what we do know is that it isn't JUSTICE LEAGUE: PART 1 & 2 those are both being directed by Zack Snyder.  Also as reported awhile back Michelle MacLaren has been hired to direct the first ever WONDER WOMAN big screen adaptation.  Also if rumors are true Lord & Miller the directors of THE LEGO MOVIE are supposedly being eyed for THE FLASH movie.  So if we believe these the rumors to be so, then the shorts list of films on the calendar for these guys to direct is SHAZAM, CYBORG, GREEN LANTERN, AND AQUAMAN.

I believe it will be the the SHAZAM or AQUAMAN movies, seeing is how good these directors handled Keanu Reeves in John Wick bringing him back to his badass action hero days, I'm sure they can handle The Rock in SHAZAM and/or Jason Momoa in AQUAMAN.

Now about the inclusion of the Jason Todd/Red Hood Story-line in the DC Universe here is what     Latino-Review said:

Jason Todd/Red Hood is now a “priority character” for DC. As Robin, Jason Todd was famously killed by The Joker in the “A Death in the Family” comic book story arc, and Todd’s Robin uniform will be featured in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE in a display case in the Batcave.

In case you are a little unfamiliar with this story-line here is a little help, just a short excerpt from my memory:

  • Dick Grayson quits being Robin to become Nightwing
  • Jason Todd becomes the new Robin
  • Robin is then killed by the Joker
  • Batman never forgives himself for this, he feels as though it was his fault
  • Batman Leaves a monument/memorial in the batcave in memory of Todd/Robin
  • Years and Years later Jason Todd is resurrected from the Lazarus Pit.
  • He Becomes the Red Hood and fights against Batman

Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice Hits theaters on March 25th, 2016
