Mike Flanagan poses for a photo of Clayface to Warner Bros. DC - The Dish

It looks like Mike Flanagan is making a big splash in the DC movie universe. The director of Doctor Sleep and Gerald's Game has just pitched an idea for a Clayface project to Warner Bros. DC, and it sounds pretty exciting! 

Clayface is one of Batman’s most iconic villains, with the ability to shape-shift into any form he desires.

 In many iterations, he has been portrayed as both hero and villain depending on his current mission or state of mind at that moment in time.

 It would be interesting to see how Flanagan could bring this character alive on screen with his unique vision for storytelling - something that fans have come to expect from him after recent releases such as Doctor Sleep and Hush (the latter being based off another popular Batman villain). 

With its potential mix of action-packed sequences fused together by psychological drama elements, we could be looking at quite an intriguing story here if it goes ahead; one which will surely keep viewers hooked throughout its runtime!

Best known for his popular Netflix horror series including The Haunting of Hill House, The Haunting of Bly Manor, and Midnight Mass, as well as his adaptation of Stephen King's The Shining Follow Doctor Sleep, Flanagan is currently developing a series adaptation of King's The Dark Tower alongside Trevor Macy. , as we first told you in December. It is represented by WME, Novo Entertainment, and VanderKloot Law.

There are no further details available yet but given Flanagan’s track record thus far – not only within horror films but also other genres – there’s no doubt that whatever comes out from this project will be worth watching out for when it eventually hits theaters (or streaming services).
