A little over a month ago saw a rumor hit that George Miller was set to direct the sequel to Man of Steel. It was then said that Man of Steel 2 was put on permantent hold, but that Miller could direct whatever interested him. Zack Snyder even said the door was open for Miller.
Now word comes directly from the director of Mad Max: Fury Road that he isn't directing Man of Steel 2, but George Miller does confirm talks with DC.
"There has been some of that in the mix, but I would say, probably not true," Miller responded to DC and Man of Steel 2 questioning while talking with Digital Insider.
"I was going to do a Justice League movie that fell through in 2009," Miller continued. "Not a fault of anybody's fault except a new Australian govenment wasn't agile enough with their rebates. It went indecisive. There was a writers strike. The planets didn't align for that one, but I've always been interested in mythology, and the superhero movies are basically new incarnations of the greek and roman mythologies. That's always something I'm interested in."
Miller did note he is a DC fan as well.
"I group in an era that was mainly DC, and so they are the pantheon for me," Miller said. "I've seen some of them. I obviously haven't seen Batman Vs. Superman. I love [Zack Snyder's] work."
Miller also noted the next film he directs he hopes will be small.
"I hope the next film I make is a very small film without any special effects and not many stunts."
