You heard right! Nolan, will direct Superman.
Or as hes already calling it, Superman 3.0 (why?)
This is GREAT! Ive never in my life seen a great Superman movie. The old ones are painful to watch and the new one, well Superman didnt throw ONE punch in it. But Nolan, being Jesus Christ- will make a great Supes film.
Here is the facts, (from DEADLINE)
EXCLUSIVE: Warner Bros is trying to ready its DC Comics stalwart Superman to soar again on the Big Screen, and the studio has turned to Chris Nolan to mentor development of the movie. Our insiders say that the brains behind rebooted Batman has been asked to play a “godfather” role and ensure The Man Of Steel gets off the ground after a 3 1/2-year hiatus. Nolan’s leadership of the project can set it in the right direction with the critics and the fans, not to mention at the box office. Besides, Nolan is considered something of a god at and has a strong relationship with Warner Bros after the success of Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. Though he wasn’t obligated to do so, he gave the studio first crack at his spec script Inception, and Warner Bros was able to buy it before other studios even got a sniff. While Nolan completes that Leonardo DiCaprio-starrer for a July 16th release, he’s also hatched an idea for Warner Bros’ third Batman installment. Now his brother and frequent collaborator Jonah Nolan, and David Goyer who co-wrote Batman Begins and penned the story for The Dark Knight, are off scripting it.”
Are they doing this so that Superman and Batman are in the same “Type of vibe” so that they can get ready for JLA??
That seems like the best reason, they want to do a JLA movie, and what better way to start, then to have Nolan direct Superman?
GENIUS. At LAST DC does something good! Bravo!
What do you guys think?
