Like the MCU, several directors have worked on the DCEU as Iron Man. But of course there could only be one that can only be the best. So the fans started the debate to determine which of these directors is the best. But if you look closely, only one of them is missing.
On r/DC_Cinematic, Reddit user u/ConstructionOk765 asked the community which DCEU director is the best. OP shared a list of photos of various directors who worked on the franchise. However, of all the directors who worked on the superhero franchise, it seems that Joss Whedon is not around. Perhaps it is due to his work in League of JusticeBut who knows for sure.
One might expect Zack Snyder to win this contest, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. According to fans, James Wan seems to be the favorite as he is capable of producing amazing movies within budget. Not to mention that they are fans of his work in the horror genre in movies like The spell. Fans believe that more horror genre directors should get involved in superhero movies because of this.
For those who need a refresher, Wan’s first DCEU movie was aquaman, starring Jason Momoa. It is reported that he will be directing the upcoming sequel, which still has Amber Heard co-starring with Momoa. But apart from James Wan, the other favorites were a close link between James Gunn and David Sandberg. But of course, some also enjoy Snyder’s work.
Several directors have worked in the DCEU. But there are those whose work surpasses others according to a variety of fans. But other than that, it looks like Zack Snyder has some competition, as DC fans are eager to see the works of other directors and how their talents will shape the DCEU.
