Tyler Perry, of all directors, has had conversations with DC Films and Marvel Studios about directing their movies. That being said, he’s turned both production companies down.
Screen Rant recently had an interview with Tyler Perry in time for the release of his latest Madea movie. Though Perry has stated that he has no interest whatsoever in directing a superhero movie, he has revealed that he actually had brief conversations with representatives of Marvel and DC:
“I’ve had a couple conversations, but I would always say, ‘I’m not the guy to do this’. I’m not the guy that can bring this vision to life cause it takes such a village to pull it together, and I’m not a guy that can work with fifty other directors and producers telling you what to do, how to do it, when to do it. That doesn’t work for me. I saw that in a couple of the sci-fi movies that I’ve been a part of and I think, ‘Uhh, I’m not doing that’.”
By his own admission, it seems that directing a major blockbuster isn’t the kind of thing that Perry is suited for as a director. However, it’s worth noting that he has received critical praise for a fairly serious performance in Gone Girl – so perhaps his skills are better suited in an acting role as opposed to a directing one. It’s still interesting to hear about directors who turn down these kinds of movies for being too much work instead of being dismissive of superheroes in general.

7 Ways The Marvel Cinematic Universe Can Improve
Marvel Studios has changed the way that superhero films are being structured and looked upon. They have created a series of incredibly successful films under their umbrella and moved into television with several great shows (especially over on Netflix), making them a force to be reckoned with. However, Marvel has kind of become a little too comfortable when it comes to things like taking risks.
While Marvel’s films still get great reviews and are really entertaining for the most part, they also feel like safe bets. The Marvel Cinematic Universe films don’t really feel separate and there are things the studio can do to improve upon their already-winning formula. There are many things they can reach for and it’s a great time to look at these things as we move towards the release of Thor: Ragnarok, as well as next year’s Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War and Ant-Man and the Wasp.
