Furious 7 director James Wan, in an exclusive interview with ComicBook.com, was asked if the talk about him directing a DC Comics movie was real, because as it was previously reported Wan had an interest in directing a DC property film.
In the interview he also commented on directing the Shazam film because of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, as they already have a relationship because of the Furious franchise.
CB: I do hear whispers that you might be in talks for a DC or Warner Brothers movie. Is that true?
Wan: There’s lots of talks about lots of things so who knows what is true.
CB: Would you want to direct Dwayne Johnson again in Shazam?
Wan: Well, put it this way: I freakin’ love Dwayne. He’s an awesome guy and I would love to work with him again in a heartbeat. I know Dwayne wants to find something for me and him to do again in the future.
Dwayne Jonhson expressed liking the idea by responding and tweeting the article, as well as saying he loves James Wan (@creepypuppet):
