Mike Flanagan (Doctor Sleep) has pitched a film fixing on Batman villain Clayface to DC Bosses James Gunn and Peter Safran, Deadline has confirmed.
If the movie gets the go ahead, and apparently the duo haven’t said “no”, the trade says the origin film won’t fix on a bad guy. With word that Clayface figures into the script for The Batman 2, it’s possible Flanagan may end up directing a film or series set in the same universe.
The filmmaker had said previously he sees a Clayface film as a “horror/thriller/tragedy”.
Well I've wanted to do a Superman movie since I was a kid, but I would also be really keen to do a standalone Clayface movie as a horror/thriller/tragedy. https://t.co/68nZFLOGLT
