So, Rick and Morty just released the first episode of its fifth season, and people on social media are going nuts. However, those who have followed the happenings behind the show know that there is some gossip about the possibility of a Rick and Morty feature film. And if such a film ever happens, Zack Snyder would be on board to direct it.
Zack Snyder recently made an appearance on The Film Junkee Vodka Stream, where he was asked about the chance of him directing a comedy film. At first, Snyder was not fully onboard about directing a comedy. But, when the idea of a Rick and Morty movie emerged, it sounded like the closest thing that Snyder would ever direct to a comedy. Snyder said:
I don’t have like a straight comedy that I can think, you know, that’s like wall to wall straight comedy. If I did the Rick and Morty Movie that’s probably about the closest I’d get.
Snyder has quite a lucrative career when it comes to the choice of films that he directs. From 300 to Man of Steel, Justice League, and Army of the Dead, his career demonstrates that he is open to new ideas. And thus, the idea of him working on a Rick and Morty movie is not that improbable. In an interview with Tyrone Magnus, talked about similarly working on an anime feature film, Snyder remarked:
I would consider that. I mean, if it came right. But definitely, I would do an anime remake or live-action. That would be fun because I love animation, and I watch a ton of anime with my kid who’s too young to watch it but we watch anyway (laughs).
Will a Rick and Morty movie happen?
As far as the chances of a Rick and Morty movie are concerned, there are chances that it may happen. Producer Scott Marder narrated how it definitely could happen someday, saying:
It’d be daunting, I wouldn’t be shocked if there was one that comes down the pipe one day. I feel like every episode is a movie. I’d like to see what a movie would be, I feel like we pack so much in. It’d have to be pretty epic.
