MOTHER! Director Darren Aronofsky Says He Would Be Interested In Helming A SUPERMAN Movie

Mother! director Darren Aronofsky has already spoken about how he would have approached a Batman movie back in the day, but it sounds like he may also have some interest in The Man of Steel. Take a look...

Had Darren Aronofky gotten the opportunity to helm his Batman: Year One movie back in the day, it's fair to day that he would have delivered a very different take on The Dark Knight, and one that would have been highly divisive.

It seems unlikely that the mother! director will ever get the chance to realize his vision for Batman, but it sounds like he does still have some interest in dipping a toe in the CBM genre - and a certain other iconic DC hero in particular seems to have caught his attention.

While chatting to CinePop about his latest film, Aronofsky was asked if he still has any interest in "presenting a unique vision" of the superhero genre:


"I mean, you know, Superman would always be interesting. But they’re already deep into reinventing him, so that’s not going to happen for a long time."

Aronofsky also acknowledges that these types of movies usually aim to find the widest audience possible, which means it might be difficult for him to get away with doing anything radically different with the character. So, while a trip to the DCEU is probably not on the cards for the acclaimed filmmaker, there's always a chance we might get to see his take on the Man of Steel at some point in the future.

What do you guys think? Any interest in Darren Aronofsky's Superman?
