In a new interview with Empire, director Peter Jackson claims he isn’t interested in directing a superhero movie and that he’d already been offered the chance to direct “Aquaman.,” but he turned it down. Twice.
“[WB Executive Kevin Tsujihara] said, ‘Are you a fan of Aquaman?’ I said, ‘No.’ Six months later: ‘Peter, are you a fan of Aquaman?’ I said, ’No, Kevin, I already told you this’,” Jackson said. “I’m not a superhero guy. I read ‘Tintin’… Look, films are hard. I only want to make something that I have a deep passion for.”
