Although Mitchell is excited about a sequel to Russell’s superhero movie, he thinks that the work should be accomplished by none other than Marvel. The director told ComicBook.com:

“If we could pull Kevin into it. And, we could get Disney to…. Disney’s so scared of Marvel. Only Marvel can do superhero films. To which, I say, ‘Great!’ Let’s have Marvel do Sky High! That would be fun. So, I’m ready to go.”

When ComicBook.com approached Mitchell he said he would really love to see a collaboration between Marvel and DC. Mitchell wishes Marvel and DC to sideline their rivalry and join hands to create a cinematic masterpiece. 

“It would be great to see a DC and Marvel character in the same film…that would be fantastic. Maybe just cram them all together into one ultimate film. I’m sure it’s gonna happen at some point but I couldn’t be more happy to work on something like that. It would be fantastic!”

The Kung Fu Panda 4 director has made it quite clear that when and if the collaboration between Marvel and DC happens, he would be more than happy to work on it. Until then, if Marvel is looking to add a new superhero to their catalog, they know where to go.
