DA 5 BLOODS Director Spike Lee Would Consider Helming A Superhero Movie Given The "Right Opportunity"

Spike Lee is widely considered one of the greatest living directors, and many fans would love to see his take on any number of comic book characters. Would he be interested in helming a superhero film?

Spike Lee is one of the most prolific and well-regarded directors working today, with a superb filmography to boast off. While he has covered a lot of different genres over the course of his 40-year career, he tends to stick to more grounded, dramatic fare, so it's hardly surprising that he's never helmed a superhero movie.

That doesn't mean he wouldn't consider it, though!

During an interview with EW, Lee was asked if we'd ever see him try his hand at a superhero film, even though "some of your directing brethren have dismissed Marvel movies as not legit filmmaking."

"I have nothing against Marvel," he replied. "I grew up reading Spider-Man comic books. To me, DC Comics was always corny... [Laughs] I'm just saying. I was all about Marvel. If the right opportunity comes across, I'm not campaigning for it, but I will give it consideration."

The closest Lee has come to the comic book genre was his re-adaptation of Japanese manga Oldboy, which was not very well received and one of his only notable flops. There was a rumor doing the rounds back in 2018 that he was attached to direct one of Sony's planned Spider-Man spinoffs, Nightwatch, but nothing ever came of it.

Would you like to see Spike Lee direct a superhero/comic book film or TV series? If so, which ones? Let us know in the comments.
