Over recent years, we have seen several horror directors transition into the world of superheroes including Scott Derrickson with Doctor Strange, David F. Sandberg with Shazam! and James Wan with Aquaman. Now, another filmmaker associated with the horror genre has revealed which superhero projects he would be interested in developing.
Taking to Twitter, Mike Flanagan, who is perhaps best known for creating Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House, Netflix’s The Haunting of Bly Manor and directing Doctor Sleep, has revealed that he would be keen to work on a Superman movie or a standalone Clayface movie.
“I’ve wanted to do a Superman movie since I was a kid,” Flanagan said. “But I would also be really keen to do a standalone Clayface movie as a horror/thriller/tragedy.”

While the future of Henry Cavill’s Superman is currently unknown, Flanagan developing a standalone Clayface movie as a horror/thriller would be a perfect combination especially with the filmmaker’s ability to craft compelling horror stories intertwined with a gripping human emotional core.
