Holy Moly has it been a busy time for Superman news this week. It has been a who’s who of names batted around to direct the Superman Reboot that Christopher Nolan is producing and now another big name has been tossed into the hat.
Darren Aronofsky who directed The Wrestler and the upcoming Black Swan starring Natalie Portman has met with Nolan according to the LA Times about potentially directing the Superman Man of Steel movie.
Darren is clearly very talented but is far from the expected choice when you consider who else has been in talks to get the role: Zach Snyder, Matt Reeves, Tony Scott, Duncan Moon and Jonathon Liebsman. Zach Snyder you should all know since he directed Watchmen and 300 but Duncan Jones is a good choice to as was shown in his truly fantastic sci-fi thriller MOON.
Matt Reeves of course directed Cloverfield and the upcoming remake of Let The Right One in. Lastly we have Jonathon Liebsman who is directing Battlefield Los Angeles about an alien invasion in LA.
