While promoting his new film Neon Demon, Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn revealed that he's in the market to direct a superhero movie. He even has one in mind - Batgirl.
"God, I would love to make [a superhero movie], it would probably be great fun," Refn told Business Insider. "I just don't know when it's going to happen. I very much enjoy my freedom creatively, but I also would love to make one of those big Hollywood films that costs a lot of money and has a lot of people running around with cell phones and all that insanity."
"You know the one I want to do? I want to make Batgirl,” he continued. “Let's get Warner working on it."
Refn previously expressed interest in directing a Wonder Woman film. Back in 2011, he told IndieWire "I would love to make Wonder Woman. And I also think that Christina Hendricks would be the perfect Wonder Woman, but Warner Bros haven’t called yet. But I’m getting closer with Logan’s Run. I think someone said to me in a meeting that if I get Logan’s Run right, then I’ll get Wonder Woman.”
Refn's Logan's Run remake has yet to materialize, while Wonder Woman's upcoming solo film is directed by Patty Jenkins, and slated for a June 23, 2017 theatrical release. As for Batgirl, Warner Bros. is reportedly developing a movie that centers on Batgirl, Harley Quinn, and possibly other female DC heroes, though specifics have yet to emerge.
