Steven DeKnight might have been a Marvel showrunner, taking over the Marvel Netflix series Daredevil after the departure of Drew Goddard, but that doesn't mean the filmmaker isn't open to taking on projects over at enemy territory.

Now that he's done working on Pacific Rim: Uprising, DeKnight is being asked whether or not he'd want to direct films for Warner Brother's burgeoning DC Extended Universe, and last week on Twitter the director was confronted by a fan who was wondering which DC project he'd want to take on if he could write or direct any of the films within the franchise.


Responding on the social media platform, DeKnight has a pretty clear response – the first project he'd like to take on would be a Batman movie, and then a Superman one coming at close seconds. The filmmaker would also like to work on a movie for the Doom Patrol a team of superpowered misfits dubbed as the "Worlds Strangest Heroes."

Batman at the top of the list, Supes a close second. Then things like a Doom Patrol movie. https://t.co/u0ualWKT7D

Though DC isn't working on a Doom Patrol movie right now, Warner Brothers is developing a Doom Patrol series for its upcoming streaming platform, the DC Universe. Who knows, maybe the studio could tap DeKnight to help run the show. After all, DeKnight has written, produced, and directed episodes for a number of great comic book television shows including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Smallville, and Daredevil. What's even better is that there still isn't any word what DeKnight's next feature film might be, so the showrunner's pretty free to work on Doom Patrol, well, if he wanted to.
