Let's see... this one could be tough.

I'm definitely interested in seeing what Darren Aronofsky can do for RoboCop, so I say keep him on for that.

Green Lantern, hmm... I would be interested in seeing what Danny Boyle could do. I mean, I loved 28 Days Later and most of Sunshine, so I'd be interested in seeing his take on a superhero movie.

A new Superman movie I would hire the Wachowski Brothers in a heartbeat, since basically Neo WAS Superman, and I think they could be very faithful to the mythos and create a new direction for him.

Joel Schumacher should direct Superman. He's got great visual and directoral flare, is good with bringing a lot of color to life and could make Superman fun again.

Someone who could take the best of both Hulk movies and maybe find a quality level in between might be Andrew Davis, provided he's not washed up now.

I think Tony Scott would be good with the ultra violence and satire of RoboCop.

A new Superman Movie - Martin Campbell
The Avengers movie - Jon Favreau
Yet another HULK movie - Jonathan Frakes
Westworld - Paul Verhoeven
Clash of the Titans - Ridley Scott
RoboCop - Please do not remake RoboCop. It is perfect as is.

Darren Aronofsky is already set to direct the next Robocop, so that really doesn't apply...

I am aware of that, and I happen to be a fan of Aronofsky's works, but this is one film that didn't need a remake or a reimagining. It is perfect as is.

The answer to all of these is Tom Cruise. Every movie would make a billion dollars, even in these tough economic times.

Re: Your go to..guy!

I'm still hoping against hope that Warner Bros. will give Bryan Singer another shot at Superman.

For another Hulk movie, you need someone with strong story & character sensibilities (like Ang Lee) but also someone who can put that into the framework of a raucous action movie (not Ang Lee). My first 2 thoughts there would be James Cameron & Bryan Singer. I might also consider Steven Spielberg but not as he is today. I'm thinking the Spielberg of 15-20 years ago; the man who made Hook & Jurassic Park. Keep Edward Norton as Bruce Banner from The Incredible Hulk. Bring back Connelly & Elliott from Hulk (2003).

After seeing Domino, I agree Tony Scott might be an interesting choice for RoboCop.
