Darren Aronofsky Now Linked To Superman!

It looks like Fox and WB are playing pass the director! As Aronofsky, previously linked to Wolverine 2, is the latest name to be thrown into the expanding short list of directors for the Superman reboot..

At this point, 3 directors have been mentioned in connection with both Fox's Wolverine 2 and WB's Superman reboot. Tony Scott, Matt Reeves and now Darren Aronofsky.

The LA Times report..

As he intensifies his search for a director on the Warner Bros. reboot, Christopher Nolan, who's godfathering the new Superman and producing the David Goyer script, has had discussions with Aronofsky about the job, sources say.



Aronofsky's latest, Black Swan, is gaining huge plaudits and is set to become a big art house hit. While he would seem a left field choice for something like Superman he is also just the type of director someone like Chris Nolan would go for in my opinion. Both made their names with tiny budget indie films and have since gone on to make some much bigger, successful, but never particularly commercial or "studio friendly" movies. The big difference between them is that Aronofsky has yet to make anything as big as Nolan's Batman films. But, he was all set to do the Robocop reboot for WB until it fell through. Maybe he will cut his blockbuster teeth with The Man Of Steel instead.

More updates as we have em.
