Tim Burton will never direct a Marvel movie
Tim Burton says he would never direct a Marvel movie.
The director has previously worked on a comic book adaptation, as he brought Batman to the silver screen for the first time in 1989.
He would later direct Batman Returns, too.
However, it seems he has no interest in taking part in any kind of extended universe whether that be with Marvel, DC or Star Wars.
"It's gotten to be very homogenized, very consolidated. There's less room for different types of things," he said at the Lumiere Film Festival.
"I can only deal with one universe, I can't deal with a multi-universe."
Burton done with Disney
The Marvel Cinematic Universe and Star Wars are both owned and ran by Disney, with whom Burton actually started his career as an animator in the early 1980s.
He last worked with Disney with an adaptation of Dumbo, but his experience with the studio juggernaut has apparently put him off doing another project.
"My history is that I started out there. I was hired and fired like several times throughout my career there," he explained.
"The thing about 'Dumbo', is that's why I think my days with Disney are done, I realised that I was Dumbo, that I was working in this horrible big circus and I needed to escape. That movie is quite autobiographical at a certain level."
