Zack Snyder has become one of the most talked-about filmmakers in the superhero genre. He has not only directed several movies in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) but has also produced multiple projects. Now he has disclosed which Marvel comics property could bring him into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
In a recent interview with ComicBook Debate, Zack Snyder unveiled the characters that could bring him to the Marvel movies. He said that if given a chance he would choose Elektra Lives Again to do a project on. The filmmaker mentioned that it is Frank Miller’s comic book and a graphic novel about Elektra. He explained that in it, Daredevil is having these dreams about Elektra coming back to life. Snyder asserted that it is really cool, weird, and beautiful. He noted that it is what he would like to do if offered to be a part of Marvel movies, even though no one cares about it right now.
Daredevil and Elektra, both have not made their way into the MCU. However, they did have standalone projects. In 2003, Ben Affleck portrayed Matt Murdock in Daredevil film written and directed by Mark Steven. Jennifer Garner played his love interest Elektra Natchios in it and later she appeared in a solo spinoff project, Elektra (2005), which failed to perform well at the box office. A planned sequel for Elektra was cancelled.
Daredevil did not appear in the Marvel movies but was adapted as a television show by Netflix. Created by Drew Goddard, the series stars Charlie Cox in the lead role as the blind lawyer-by-day and crime fighter by night. Running for three seasons, it consisted of 39 episodes. The rights for the character are back at Marvel Studios.
Meanwhile, Zack Snyder has his hands full with several projects. He is finishing up his much-anticipated version of Justice League. It is a four-hour-long miniseries that will be available on HBO Max in mid-2021. The filmmaker also has a zombie heist film, Army of the Dead for Netflix.
