I actually would like to see a Superman movie directed by Jon Favreau. Or at least a Superman film that is directed by someone who loves the character as much as Jon loves Star Wars.I had put in Peter Jackson’s name as an option because of how amazing his films are, especially the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
