Since I'm no fan of gangster movies, it must be a superhero movie directed by Martin Scorsese!

gangster movies deal with many themes and issues (family, savage urbanism, political corruption, society...) I think it's a far richer breed of movies than superheroes...
I like what this guy says:

And it's true that it rarely matters who plays the superhero(ine), while the casting is still important for the "gangster" genre (superhero films and blockbusters killed the movie star figure...)

Whoa Elmo, I just read your comment and wanted to ask you if you've seen the interview with Anthony Mackie, then clicked on the link...

No one has explored vigilantism better than Scorsese, so his take on Batman could challenge The Dark Knight as the best superhero movie ever. Joker proved that you can make a Scorsesian movie out of the comic book world, but imho it falls short of what the master himself could have done with the premise.

"Joker" is the closest to any "Scorsesian" approach of a 'superhero' movie a director ever came to...

We'll never know, because Scorsese never ever did.

I like this idea a lot. 'Very original. I don't watch hardly any superhero movies but I'd watch almost anything that Scorsese would make.

Thank you again ... this day was perfect !
First I woke and saw my 50th poll going online. Then headed for work and had some struggle I coped very good with, later I sat in our flat and ordered a pizza from a known Italian service. By watching an american comedy I ate a perfect Italian style pizza. I have no Italian mama to prove it, but it remembered me on some Italian vacation we had, when I was a kid and a teen. The guys did perfect with the oregano, the garlic, the champignons (mushrooms), the cheese was a nice mozarella. They baked it a little crunchy and sliced it. Today I was a king in my castle. ;D And now heading for the best: Tiramisu ! Greetings to all of you, specially to Mr. Scorsese and Mr. Gunn. :D (If they read that)

I voted for Martin Scorsese directing a superhero movie. I think it would be a much different and interesting approach than the one that Gunn could give to a mafia film.
