Barbarian Director Reveals Batman Spinoff Movie for DC Films
Barbarian director Zach Cregger is partaking in his new blood and gore movie being at the top of the case in its initial end of the week, but his arrangements for the future extend the whole way to the DC Films Universe. In a new interview for Barbarian’s release, Zach Cregger talked about what he’s dealing with next: one project is a new blood and gore movie that’s “way more ambitious” and “stranger” than Barbarian; the other is a film that is “set in the DC Universe,” and would be a “Batman-adjacent thing.”
Apparently, Cregger isn’t just doing this as a lighthearted impulse: he told Bloody-Disgusting’s Boo Group Podcast that this Batman spinoff is something extremely precious to him: “I wrote it and I’m utterly fixated on it. So one day… I want to make that.”
No further details on what the project would be or which Batman characters it was centered around. There’s likewise no genuine indication of just the way that nearby or distant Cregger’s film is from actually being considered by DC Films.
Zach Cregger is just getting started as a significant feature-movie director but in the scene of the cutting edge Batman movie establishment, that doesn’t mean he’s out of the running. Warner Brothers. furthermore, DC Films have been willing to take chances on something like Todd Phillips’ Joker – which is the sort of project that someone like Zach Cregger could definitely deal with. Matt Reeves The Batman is venturing into an entire universe with Penguin and Arkham Asylum TV spinoffs – so once more, there is plenty of space for a new to the scene director to get in on a “Batman-adjacent” sort of project.
The current Batman line of DC Comic books has likewise opened up various new possibilities for what Batman-brand film projects could be. The Bat-group of supporting characters offers quite a few fun possibilities; there are chapters of Batman’s life that are being told in spectacular fashion (Batman: The Knight); and characters like Jim Gordon and Joker have stepped out into their own story curves that enlarge the extent of the DC hidden world. That’s not to mention the different renowned Batman non-canon stories that are still waiting for a true to life adaptation.
One thing is for certain: Barbarian is such an exceptionally standout blood and gore film experience that seeing Cregger take on a DC project would intrigue, at the extremely least.
