Director Praises Frank Miller’s Work
Zack Snyder has revealed the Marvel comic book he would most like to adapt into a film, opting for Frank Miller’s Elektra Lives Again.
Speaking at the ComicBook Debate, Snyder, who has worked on several DC films recently, including his long-awaited cut of Justice League, was asked which project he would take on for the MCU, he replied –
“I would choose Elektra Lives Again,”
“Do you know that Frank Miller comic book? It’s a graphic novel about Elektra. Daredevil is having these dreams about Elektra coming back to life, and it’s really cool and weird… it’s just cool, and beautiful. That’s what I would do. No one cares, but that’s what I would do.”
Both Elektra and Daredevil have been a part of the MCU already, with the 2005 film Elektra arriving as a spin-off of 2003’s Daredevil, as well as a Netflix series focused on the latter.
The filmmaker may even have time for a Marvel project after he also said he has no current plans to make more DC movies.
“Look, I never thought I’d be here doing this. I didn’t think I’d be finishing Justice League. The truth is, and it’s been widely reported, and I have no issue, this is an old movie.
“This is a years-old movie I’m working on. The DC universe has gone and branched off and done its own thing and that’s fine… as far as what I did and as far as what my vision for what I wanted to do with these characters and the journey I wanted them to go on, it’s well known that I planned on more movies — five movies or something — but I’m busy. I’ve got a lot going on.”
Snyder, whose Director’s Cut of Justice League is due to be released in March, said he is busy working on other projects beyond the DC Extended Universe.
