THE LEGO MOVIE 2 Director Mike Mitchell Wants To Helm A Marvel/DC Crossover Or PLASTIC MAN - EXCLUSIVE

We recently sat down with The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part director Mike Mitchell to discuss the animated sequel, and in this excerpt from our interview, he talks about his superhero movie ambitions...

With The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part now available on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital Download, I recently had the opportunity to catch up with director Mike Mitchell (Sky High, Trolls). We discussed a number of topics, including the sequel's surprising cameos, why no Marvel characters appeared in the animated adventure, and Batman's startling new look. 

All of that will be available to check out on the site tomorrow. 

In the meantime, we wanted to bring you an excerpt from our interview in which the filmmaker reveals whether he would be interested in working on a Marvel or DC Comics adaptation somewhere down the line. As you can see below, he had a couple of suggestions, both of which are pretty awesome. 

You're no stranger to superheroes now, so are there any Marvel or DC superheroes you'd like to tackle in a live-action setting somewhere down the line? 
 
Oh yeah, I love superheroes. I did a superhero film years ago, Sky High, and I'm such a fan. It would be great to see a DC and Marvel character in the same film...that would be fantastic. Maybe just cram them all together into one ultimate film! I'm sure it's gonna happen at some point but I couldn't be more happy to work on something like that. It would be fantastic! Plastic Man! They need to make that guy someday. I don't even know if he's DC or Marvel.
 
He's DC, but now you've said it, we'll get it out there for you - fingers crossed! 
 
Yeah! 'Mike Mitchell, his next film is Plastic Man for DC!' [Laughs]

Given how well he handled The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part (and particularly its superhero characters), it would be amazing to see Mitchell get his hands on a quirky character like Plastic Man. As for that Marvel/DC crossover, while it's still more than likely a long way down the line, the director has proven that he can handle a large ensemble, so here's hoping the two companies take note.

What do you guys think?

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part comes to Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download June 3.
