Kevin Smith Wants To Direct A Movie Based On DC's THE QUESTION

The Clerks director has tackled several DC Comics characters on the page, but during his appearance at the Produced By conference in Los Angeles Kevin Smith revealed that if he were to adapt a superhero for the screen he'd like it to be Vic Sage, AKA The Question.


Despite being a huge comic book fan, Kevin Smith has never helmed a superhero flick, and while speaking to KPCC host John Horn at the Produced By conference in LA he admits that he's not likely to ever get the opportunity to. But, he says if he did he'd like to make a movie based on The Question.

Smith's idea would put a "noir-ish thriller" spin on the DC comics vigilante who uses a special substance to erase his features and a binary gas to recolour his cloths and hair. "I always thought if you were in an alley and f—ing Batman showed up you'd be like, 'Oh f—, Batman.' But if a dude shows up with no features and starts punching you, you would probably kill yourself in fear," he explained to Horn.

Despite being a fairly popular B-list character, there has never been a whole lot done with The Question outside of comics (his memorable appearances in the Justice League Unlimited cartoon aside), but there's plenty of potential there. Renee Montoya took up the mantle after Vic Sage, and she is currently played by Victoria Cartagena on Fox's Gotham so there's always the possibility she'll eventually don the faceless mask. A movie outing is less likely, but if Warner Bros. were to announce plans for one, do you think Smith should be the man to answer the Question?
