Another week, another possible director for The Man of Steel. The Los Angeles Times broke the news yesterday that Darren Aronosfky, the director of Requiem for a Dream, The Wrestler, and Black Swan, has met with Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas to potentially direct the upcoming Superman reboot. Joining a list that also includes Matt Reeves, Duncan Jones, Tony Scott, Jonathan Liebesman, and Zack Snyder, Aronofsky is by far the most impressive prospect yet. He brings a certain level of creativity and unpredictability to the project that films of this scale far too often lack. And while Superman may at first seem like a strange choice for someone so rooted in the independent sphere, this is same director once attached to projects like Batman: Year One, Watchmen, and RoboCop.
Most of you were in favor of Moon director Duncan Jones helming the project last week. Does Aronofsky’s inclusion in the mix change your opinion?
