Zatanna the Movie
But if i could pick the director. Maybe Zack Snider or Tim Burton. I think the person who directed the movie Hellboy could likewise pull it off. Maybe the person who directed the movie version of Gaiman's fairy tale about the kid looking for a star in another world (can't remember the name) That said I would love to see Zatanna in a full-lenght animated movie more. Something done by the guys who drew Titan A.E and written by Neil Gaiman.
The 3 directors I think could make are
1. Guillermo del Toro, director of Pan's Labyrinth and Hellboy
2. Joss Whedon who did the Buffy series and the Serenity movie
3. Neil Marshall the director of Doomsday
As for Actresses, I could see Zooey Deschanel, Olivia Wilde, and Rachel McAdams doing well in the role.
The reason I'm suggesting animated is because the guys who drew Titan A.E made superbly beautiful animation and might be better to show the magic if you will. Or the people that drew spirited away or Princess Mononoke
But as I said, if well done I would love a Zatanna movie.
" @Captain13 said:Well said. She's a great character." Thanks! Z is the superheroine I would most like to see have her own movie, so I've though about this before. "I'd be satisfied if she just got the spotlight more often. She's only just starting to earn some well-deserved respect. "
I hope you guys have a good night. I'm gonna crash.
I love Zatanna. I think she's one of the most amazing superhero out there. Her powers are just endless and yet she still can maintain her cool and friendliness. If they ever do a movie on her, I'd love to see they make it about her origin. Not sure about an actress that suit her. Although I can see Olivia Wilde playing as her. Don't know why.
she should be played by Catherine Zeta-Jones I'm telling ya. She's sexy, smart and a good actress.
" How about...Director - Tim Burton Writer - Joss Whedon Star - Rachel Mcadams Who would the villain be? "
Not Joss Whedon as the writer.
"she should be played by Catherine Zeta-Jones I'm telling ya. She's sexy, smart and a good actress.

Yes to Joss. hes an amazing writer and has made some great witches in his past work. Catherine Zeta-Jones, I can't see in the part, yes she is beautiful and a good actress but way to old for the part.
" @EpitomeofCool: Nothing he's written leads me to believe he could pull off Zatanna. Now Guillomo Del Toro... "
Buffy the vampire slayer, you should look at his material there. Who's that guy you mentioned, any familiar works he's done?
"Who's that guy you mentioned, any familiar works he's done? "He wrote and directed Pan's Labyrinth and the two Hellboy movies.
I say Joss, his work on Buffy really show the empowerment of women. And in a world where there has been not 1 single female role model of a superhero in a solo movie I think Zatanna would be a great choice. And as for a villan, i say we go with a demon for her to fight.
I love this topic! Wish I didn't stumble across this subject months later since it started. I've been talking to a close friend that works heavily in the movie industry about a Zatanna movie for the past year. I wouldn't be surprised if one were to be developed within 10 years especially with the latest line up of Zatanna comics. I always thought a film based on Zee would be entertaining ever since I first started reading more about her a while back.
If I may throw my own thoughts into this fun topic, I think Christopher Nolan (or someone that can imitate his style of films) would be a brilliant choice for a director. I can't complain about Tim Burton as well. I believe for the general public to take such a super hero seriously on the big screen, especially if they were not familiar with Zatanna as they might be with Superman, the style would have to be borderline physiological thriller and mystery. Lots of cool effects yet with a dark texture, victorian era mixed in with modern times. As for who would play Zatanna I think Michelle Monaghan, Mila Kunis, Eva Green, or Olivia Wilde. Take a look at them and imagine a top hat settled on top of there heads.
