‘Man of Steel 2’: The 10 Best Candidates To Direct The Next Superman Movie

10. Rian Johnson

Star Wars The Last Jedi Rian Johnson

Rian Johnson is now one of the most prolific directors in the world right now — that’s what happens when you direct a Star Wars movie.

Johnson is a talented writer and director who looks to craft interesting narratives out of properties he loves and remembers from his childhood. A kid playing with toys. A camera is the greatest toy around to make your dreams become a reality and that is the type of director you want helming a superhero project. After handling the biggest movie property in the world, why not let him take on the biggest superhero?

Rian Johnson is relatively low on the list due to his commitment to the upcoming Star Wars trilogy. Disney has him under lock for the next few years so it is highly unlikely Warner Bros. could draw him away. Yet there is a chance with how long it will take to get a Man of Steel 2, as Rian might be done with his Star Wars film by the time the project moves forward (he is so far only attached to direct the first spin-off film in the trilogy).

    Love that you included female directors as well as women of color. Still I’d love to see Paul Thomas Anderson’s Superman

    Just make sure WB has an actual plan in place and directors they trust to follow that plan…picking a good or interesting director and then crapping all over their vision accomplishes nothing..
