Warner Bros. seems to be scouting movie professionals in search of the perfect candidate to save and lead their crumbling DC cinematic universe. The list of potential candidates is almost endless, so fans on Twitter took it upon themselves to determine the best possible contender.
A man like Kevin Feige is hard to find, given that Marvel's main man had decades of experience as a producer and had no ties to comics before he took the job. Some fans think that professionalism is more valuable than being a comics-buff, but others strongly disagree.
So, without further ado, here are top 3 perfect candidates, according to Twitter:
The director behind 'Suicide Squad' and 'Peacemaker' is incredibly popular among DC fans. His unique style and extensive knowledge of comics will make him the perfect DC mastermind, unafraid to take creative risks for the sake of success. He will certainly attract younger and more eager directors to start the next chapter of the DC Universe. The only problem is that Gunn is a director, not a producer, so him deciding to actually leave his craft and focus on managing other people's work is pretty unlikely.
Another popular contender is Zack Snyder, who did a similar job when the franchise first started. He proved himself to be a reliable man, but 'Batman vs Superman' box office problems made him undesirable to Warner Bros. producers. Fans support his return to the helm of the beloved franchise, but are DC executives ready to give it another try?
Here's an unusual choice – Jim Lee, who is now the publisher and chief creative director of DC Comics. Yes, he's a comic book artist, not a film professional. But when you think about it, maybe that's what DC really needs? A professional who understands how the universe is supposed to work, who has proven over his long career to be a great creator and leader in the comic book industry. It's a long shot, but some dedicated DC fans are totally on board with him taking over Warner Bros.'s largest property.
Of course, Warner Bros. will make the decision to hire someone on their own, so don't be surprised if they pick someone you've never even heard of. Feige wasn't a household name before 'Avengers' too.
