Ideally Clint Eastwood or Darren Afronsky

Hopefully someone who is 8 years old right now will direct the next Batman movie. Making a another movie in the next 15 years would disrespect Nolans films.

Everyone  here wants Batman to be directed by M Night Shyamalan. 
You know it to be true.

Joe Johnston, he did a great job with Captain America, and I think he could pull off a more unrealistic/comic book Batman movie.

Director - Brad Bird

Producer - Bruce Timm

Writer - Paul Dini and Alan Burnett

Heck, throw in Lauren Montgomery and Joaquim Dos Santos as the storyboard artists too.

Oh, I was gonna say Aronofski, but Eastwood? That's a movie I'd love to see, lol.

Hm... I want someone who's not afraid to dive into the more fantastic part of Gotham. I want some Mr. Freeze, Poison Ivy, Robin, and all that other stuff.

Good.

But seriously, we need a director who can actually do a proper comic book adaptation with all that Batman deserves. Someone who can put the good from Burton, the good from Nolan and then create something on it's own with some imaginative input that makes it the Batman we all want to see and the Batman who can totally exist in the same world as Superman, Flash, Aquamn or Wondie

I'd like if the next series of movies were not so realistic. Perhaps try to set up for a JLA movie.

Guy Ritchie
 
He directed the two Robert Downey Jr Sherlock Holmes movies. If you combine the frantic, intellectual plots with the stop/start action sequences that he has mastered, I think you'll have a winner.

as long as it keeps the very dark and disturbing tone to it I will see it. I just hope it's a little less realistic, but not too unreal.

Tim Burton should get back on the Batman bandwagon he left off on.

The Idea is to reboot Batman so they can do a JLA movie...but it might be a while since apparently the  Superman  in the  Man of Steel movie isn't going to tie in with the JLA movie either.

#34 Posted by SocialBat (33 posts) - - Show Bio

Guillermo Del Toro or Alfonso Cuaron

I love Brad Bird's films but I don't think he could make a Batman film. Since Brad Bird and Andrew Stanton have made the leap from animation I'd like to think Bruce Timm or Joaquim Dos Santos could too. As for Lauren Montgomery I'd rather have her do Wonder Woman. She was the director on the animated Wonder Woman movie and that was great.

I agree on Whedon, though, I can see Tim Minear (Who worked close with Whedon on Angel and Firefly, and a bit on Dollhouse, also works on American Horror Story and a bunch of other shows now) doing an outstanding job as he's a brilliant writer and good director. Perhaps a team of Tim Minear (writing) and Drew Goddard (directing).

zack snyder. he'll keep it close to the comics which will make it better for comic fans and make it easier for people who watched the movie to get into the comics. and he'll make robin cool
