I think it would have been interesting to see what he could have done with Star Wars. But I am happy to see he won't. Because I think Disney would not allow him to make the film he wants to make. I do think if he did it though more people would finally see the great stuff he can do.

I myself though would have liked to see in an other universe what he could have done with the Hobbit over Star Wars. As for what he does in the future I hope something with DC Comics. I could see some of the Vertigo comics getting good films from him. I could see the world from Fables & Swamp Thing from him looking real nice.

Guillermo Del Toro? J.J. Abrams? I wish they'd think a little outside the box.
