David Fincher is the man behind some of the best films of the last two decades, including Fight Club, The Social Network, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

Unfortunately he won't be turning his esteemed hands to the superhero genre anytime soon - which is a shame - because he'd definitely make an amazing go of it.

But Fincher himself isn't a fan of the genre:

I find it dull. I like to anticipate the energy of a movie audience that’s waiting for the curtain to come up and thinking, Well, one thing we don’t know about this guy is that we don’t know how bad it can get.

In an interview with Playboy, Fincher also talked about his aborted attempt to remake 20,000 Days on Earth, which failed to materialise.

It seems that he and Disney couldn't agree on a cast, or politics:

We were doing Osama bin Nemo, a Middle Eastern prince from a wealthy family who has decided that white imperialism is evil and should be resisted. The notion was to put kids in a place where they’d say, “I agree with everything he espouses. I take issue with his means—or his ends.”

Whatever Fincher hasn't made in the past, or won't make in the future, we can still get excited about his new release Gone Girl, starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike.
