I loved Logan hopefully this will be as good as his other comic book films.
I think he sounds like a great choice! I loved his take on Logan and Girl Interrupted was great too. I really hope this choice comes to past and the movie is made and released. Swampy needs love and appreciation!
This is good news! I loved his remake of 3:10 to Yuma and I really liked Walk the Line too.
Top notch enough that Steven Spielberg chose him to take over directing and co-writing Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny (2023).
I’ve enjoyed a majority of his body at work, so if James Mangold can deliver Swamp Thing the way it should be? I’m all in - just give him the budget + all of the talent required!
Am I horrible if I prefer they use deep fake style CGI to have a scene where zombie Troggs actually perform a full length version of it in story? Like, Lucas, Allen, and Doyle can perform the recording, but I want 1966 era manifestations of Presley, Bond, Staples, and Britton to appear in the film.
I’d be interested to see him take this on. Admittedly I did think Logan was overrated (very hot take, I know), but that was less because of what Mangold brought to the table and more because I just never really got very emotionally invested in that version of Wolverine. It’s still a good movie overall, and it’d be interesting to see how he’d handle a comic character’s introduction as opposed to their conclusion. I’ll probably have more to say about Mangold’s style after Indiana Jones 5, assuming this rumor hasn’t been debunked by then
I didn’t like Logan, but being that James Mangold has a great filmography, I’m 100% confident in his ability to helm Swamp Thing in a movie that will be more than either a cult or camp classic.
I think it’d be good to have a horror kinda R-rated movie in the DCU where it keeps switching themes like from a PG-13 movie to a R-rated movie unlike the MCU where all it’s movies are basically PG-13 so that’d be cool
Still sad about the show not getting a real chance.
Please do right by Swampy DC.
If y’all haven’t heard yet James Mangold confirmed that he is writing swamp thing then James gunn said he is also directing it
