Though the first big-screen outing for The Flash is still scheduled for 2018, the film recently lost its director, Seth Grahame-Smith due to creative differences.  This means that there’s a big opening in the DC Extended Universe, which means someone has the chance to be a Big Damn Hero and turn the film into a hit.  Maybe Edgar Wright, looking to complete the vision he had for Ant-Man?  Or perhaps Kevin Smith, fresh off his gig on the TV incarnation of the character?  Heck, we could even get somebody crazy like Sofia Coppola to really give us a vision for the film, leading to today’s visionary query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) wouldn’t mind seeing a John Waters take on superheroes (other than ‘Pink Flamingos’, I mean), asking: Who would you most like to see take over as The Flash’s director?

Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture!

    My lack of knowledge really shows here. Only one I can come up with making a big budget super hero movie I’d like and is available is probably Peter Jackson.

    I know he’s dead and did animation, not live-action, but I wish Satoshi Kon could have done a superhero movie. He had a very disorienting, but fantastical sense of story-telling. The sort of psychological switchbacks he had in his stories might have played out interestingly with a Flash time-travel story.

    Martin Scorsese, because cops should shoot at the villain, instead of standing there and waiting for him to throw cars at them.
