Robert Zemeckis on Comic Book Movies

During his press tour for his recently released movie A Christmas Carol, MTV took the opportunity to ask director Robert Zemeckis why he hasn’t directed a movie based on any comic books.  Zemeckis responded:

I’m a superhero fan, although I actually have never been offered one,” Zemeckis told MTV News. “I’ve never really brought one to someone and said I really want to do this superhero [movie]. Obviously, I love the form, as movies really are the extension of comic books.

And ever the professional, Zemeckis quickly returned the conversation back to the movie he’s promoting:

“The one thing about ‘A Christmas Carol’—it’s been made more times than Batman,” he laughed.
