According to a new rumor, Gravity director Alfonso Cuarón met with Warner Bros. several months ago to discuss the possibility of directing a DC movie - but it didn't work out. The DC Extended Universe is currently going through a bit of a quiet phase, with more than a year's gap between last year's Justice League and this year's Aquaman, which is out in December. However, there seems to be a lot going on behind the scenes, and next year will see the release of three DC movies: Shazam!, Wonder Woman 1984, and Joker.
It's been hard to keep track of exactly which DC movies Warner Bros. has in store for 2020 and beyond, since there are a lot of projects in development, and much of what we've heard about them is unofficial. However, one of the biggest questions that has emerged since Zack Snyder (the original visionary force behind the DCEU) backed off from the franchise is which directors Warner Bros. will bring in next.

According to Revenge of the Fans Editor-in-Chief Mario-Francisco Robles, one talent that Warner Bros. met with this year was Mexican filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón. Cuarón was the writer/director of character-driven dramas Gravity and Children of Men, but is also familiar with working within a major family-oriented franchise, as he directed Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azakan (which is widely considered to be the best of the eight Harry Potter films). Needless to say, this tidbit is pretty interesting.
Since you guys enjoyed my little #GreenLantern “What If?” scenario so much earlier this week, here’s another:
A few months back, Alfonso Cuarón met with WB about helming a #DC project. Those talks ultimately went nowhere.
But how amazing of a “get” would he have been?
