Christopher Nolan Moving Ahead on Batman 3

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | February 9, 2010 | Comments ()

He's been asked by Warner Brothers to consult on a Superman reboot.

Apparently, Warner wants to bring him aboard in a "godfather" role, though there's little chance he'd actually direct. He'd be consulting on a fresh take on the franchise, one that would not involve Brandon Routh or Bryan Singer, after they failed (spectacularly) to relaunch the most famous superhero on the planet.

It's a good move, even if Christopher Nolan is only there to basically accept/reject track changes on its development. A wise decision might even be to hire his brother and/or David Goyer to script the new Superman movie, and then bring in a director with a darker, smarter vision.

The only problem with this, of course, is that another Superman reboot could also mean another Superman origins story, only a few years after Singer's version. And honestly, if there's one thing I'm sick to death of with comic-book movies, it's that origins story, which takes up the first act of any comic-book movie before we're actually introduced to the main storyline. At least it's not another reborquel.
