Speaking to Comic Book Debate, the filmmaker named the Marvel film which would tempt him to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“I would choose Elektra Lives Again,” he said. “It’s a graphic novel about Elektra. Daredevil is having these dreams about Elektra coming back to life, and it’s really cool and weird… it’s just cool and beautiful.”
“That’s what I would do. No-one cares, but that’s what I would do.”
Elektra Lives Again, by Frank Miller and Lynn Varley, was published in 1990, and focused on the Marvel characters Daredevil and Elektra.
While the MCU began as a series of films centring on some of Marvel’s best-known characters, such as the Hulk and Captain America, it has since encompassed increasingly esoteric heroes, such as Ant-Man, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and Moon Knight (who is set to feature in a Disney+ series).
Snyder is currently working on an extended cut of 2017’s Justice League, which will be released as a four-part series on the US streaming service HBO Max.
