George Miller is Not Involved With the DC Extended Universe

Recently there have been a lot of mixed signals when it comes to George Miller and the DC Extended Universe, starting with him almost directing Justice League: Mortal, which left the impression in fans minds that he would be opened to directing a DC film eventually. Then George Miller was spotted on the Suicide Squad set back in May, which fired up the hopes of fans and the rumor mill.

Then as of recently as this past week, Jon Schnepp the director of “The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened!?”, claimed that George Miller was indeed directing Man of Steel 2.

Then just today we got another rumor by Dan of Geek, claiming that George Miller is only in talks with Warner Bros. about directing a DC Extended Universe film, but he’s not officially attached to any particular film.

Well DCComicsMovie.com got an exclusive from someone close to Warner Bros. and George Miller, that none of these recent rumors are true and that Miller is not currently in any talks to helm a DC Extended Universe film.

When we asked why was Miller on set of Suicide Squad and why would Jon Schnepp, who isn’t known for spreading false rumors would claim as such, our source said that Miller is close with Warner Bros. as family in a way and was simply on set for the holidays, as for the Jon Schnepp comment, they said they weren’t sure why Schnepp would make the claim.

Of course things can change, but we do feel confident in our source, as the source has always been up front with us.

It is our hope that Warner Bros. does eventually enter into talks with George Miller to helm a DC Extended Universe film, as he is an amazing talented director.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me

  • Well, that settles it, then. But I do hope that Miller does get on board at some point, though.

  • This makes me sad, I’ll choose to stay in denial.

  • CmputrBlu

    Anything on the MOS II rumor while we’re at it?

  • Isak House Wolff

    My guess is that the close one is Ryan Unicomb which works with him on the documentary about George Millers failed atempt at doing the Justice League movie.

    He posted it on Colider Movietalks fangroup (now removed) that George Miller had told him in person that he would not do it. However, while i belive him that George might have said that, directors and actors/actress lies all the time.

    Do i need to point out Jason Momoa kept quite about Aquaman for month but at first lied and said that the rumors was not true? Or Paul Rudd claimed that he was not Ant-man. Or the hole cast and director claimed that Bennedict Cummberbacht was not Khan in Star Trek into darkness?

    • This was my thought as well. And hearing someone else say it, makes me feel better.

    • All those examples are from actors (not directors) who were asked by the press in front of a camera, in front of a audience or on the record.

      • Isak House Wolff

        And George was prehaps aware of that Ryan was going to tell that to some media outlett or forums since CBM news are like goldnuggets in this todays age of media?

        John Campea from Colider has talked about a tons of times how Bradley Cooper lied straight to his face off camera about not being in A-Team.

        so again. Untill i hear anything other from Warner. I don’t belive this

        • Jon Schnepp on yesterday’s Heroes backpedaled and stated what he said about Miller with MOS2 should be looked at as a rumor, even though he stated it like it was a done deal and not a rumor on DC Movie News last week.

          You can choose to believe what you like in regards to Miller and the DCEU, because I choose to believe the same thing, but our side isn’t looking any greener in regards to Miller actually being attached to the DCEU either. When the person who started it all, is now labeling it as just a rumor, even saying he doesn’t know and almost comes off like he’s assuming Miller directing because Miller is a big fan of Superman… so what we assumed was a ensured source for this news, is now saying he shouldn’t be looked at as that.

          • I think he labeled it as “rumor” to protect himself, & not burn any bridges. But I sincerely doubt that he pulled that idea out of no where.
            Just like, I think it would be foolish for ANYONE to think that Miller has not had a single discussion with WB about doing a DCEU movie, “official” or otherwise, just like I’m more that sure that WB/DC is more than interested in him directing something for them.
            Now, is he “in talks” with them for this? Who knows. But at this point, “George Miller” & “DCEU” in the same sentence, shouldn’t seem too far fetched to anyone.

          • Isak House Wolff

            Sure, it looks like it might be true after all on that he has not signed on anything. I was just pointing out that untill nothing else is confirmed the rumor is neither offically confirmed or debunked.

  • CmputrBlu

    Realistically Warner has a director for the next 3 films in the pipeline; WW, JL & Aquaman(?). Still plenty of time to work out a deal with him

  • Newmantoplease

    Lol I told you that Den of Geek “report” was BS. when will people stop listening to those idiots?

    • I dunno if it’s as simple as that. All these “scoop” guys tell us that their sources say something is true, until it isn’t. Things can change very quickly in Hollywood. But as always, we should probably take everything with a grain of salt.
