Would you like to see JOHN WICK directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch behind the camera for a comic book movie? I sure the hell would, and according to Latino-Review, it just might happen. The site is claiming that the duo are being courted to direct a DC film.

Unfortunately, LR isn't sure which movie Stahelski and Leitch are being considered for. But with Zack Snyder directing THE JUSTICE LEAGUE: PART I and II and Michelle MacLaren helming WONDER WOMAN, that leaves THE FLASH, AQUAMAN, SHAZAM, CYBORG and GREEN LANTERN, as well new solo Batman and Superman films. Earlier this week we learned THE LEGO MOVIE directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller might be up for THE FLASH gig, however just like this most recent report, it is only a rumor at this point.

Latino-Review also has some additional info on DC's cinematic universe. They say they've been told Jason Todd/Red Hood is now a "priority character" for DC. As Robin, Jason Todd was famously killed by The Joker in the "A Death in the Family" comic book story arc, and the site says Todd's Robin uniform will be featured in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE in a display case in the Batcave.

Warning: Possible SUICIDE SQUAD spoiler ahead!

Red Hood

LR goes on to say in SUICIDE SQUAD, Harley Quinn feels guilty about the death of Jason Todd, which has driven a wedge between Quinn and The Joker. What are your thoughts on the latest DC movie universe rumors?

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE opens on March 25, 2016, and SUICIDE SQUAD will be in theaters on August 5, 2016.
