Batgirl Nicolas Winding Refn Banner

A few years ago, Nicolas Winding Refn said he'd love to direct a WONDER WOMAN movie with Christina Hendricks as the Amazonian. Refn may have lost out on directing a big screen take on the iconic comic book character to Patty Jenkins, however the filmmaker recently told Business Insider that he'd still like to helm a superhero movie.

God, I would love to make one, it would probably be great fun. 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.

Wonder Woman is no longer an option, but Refn said there is another DC Comics character he'd like to bring to life on the silver screen.

You know the one I want to do? I want to make Batgirl. Let’s get Warner working on it.

WB currently doesn't have a Batgirl film in the works (as far as we know, anyway), but even if they did I'm not sure if Refn would have a realistic shot at helming it. Which superhero do you think would be a good fit for his directing style?

Refn's THE NEON DEMON is now playing in select theaters, you can read a review from our own Eric Walkuski right here.

Somehow I'm not sure that Christina Hendricks would fit the role of Wonder Woman outside of Refn's own twisted sexual fantasy. I like her in Mad Men, but it sounds almost as if Refn only chose her for her other qualities.

I love Refn. I really do, but the idea of him directing something like this in the big studio system seems unlikley unless he really would be willing to reign in his more out there tendencies and work with the studio people. That being said I could go for it. I would have loved to see what kind of tripped out nightmare his Wonder Woman film would have been and a Batgirl film (likely to be filled with lesbians and violence) could be interesting as well.

If he's dead-set on directing a female superhero, I hear Captain Marvel's director position is still up for grabs..

Has he heard about the proposed Suicide Squad sequel focusing on Harley Quinn, Catwoman, Poison Ivy, etc.?

Mixed feelings on this. I like Refn's work, but my gut tells me the DCEU has already had its fill of directors known for making polarizing films.

Gotham Sirens

I love Refn, and when he is restrained creatively--see Drive--he excels. If he directed an adaptation of Gotham Sirens it would really allow him to continue working with amazing women.
