James Wan’s Vision For a Batman Film

James Wan - DC Comics News

With all the hype surrounding the upcoming Aquaman film, James Wan has been out making his rounds promoting the film. In a recent interview he was asked if there were any other comic book properties that he would’ve liked to tackle. It shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that the one he imagined directing was, of course, Batman.

But his take sounds as if it would be a bit different than past incarnations.  Wan said:

In the past like most people I loved the idea of directing Batman, but a horror version of Batman. That would be a potential fantasy of mine, but I feel like he’s been done quite a fair bit. But, I do love the idea of doing an outright scary Batman. I feel like that’d be really cool.

Considering Wan made his career with horror films like Saw and The Conjuring, you can bet his Batman would be a terrifying film. What do you think of the idea? Sound off in the comments below. I think it sounds amazing, but after seeing the trailers for Aquaman, I’d be more interested in seeing him tackle the upcoming Green Lantern Corps film.

Hi, I'm Cameron Tevis and I've been a comic book, anime and film fan my entire life. While I like Marvel and anime my true love is DC Comics. My father, who was a fan himself, introduced me at a very young age to the amazing characters in DC (especially Hal Jordan Green Lantern). I think it's a fantastic time to be a comic book fan and I'm happy I get to write about the company that I love so much. Besides being a DC fan, I am a designer and I recently started a comic book series of my own called Event Cycle 6 published through Aporian Comics. I recently wrote and directed a short film "The Misadventures of Harley Quinn". And most importantly I am now a father to my beautiful daughter Arya Jade!
