Chris Nolan To Godfather Superman 3.0!!!
What is Superman 3.0 you may ask? Think reboot!!!
You never thought it could or would happen but good ol Nikki Finke has got the latest rundown from Warner Brothers. This 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."
BIG NEWS DAY, BIG NEWS DAY!!! It's about time.
With the new DC Entertainment Inc deal going on over at Warner Bros this is a sure fire way to tell the fans 'Hey, we don't have our s&^t together yet, but were trying!' Green Lantern is evidence enough of that but tying Nolan to Superman is brilliant. Nolan is the best there is at what he does, and what he does is make realistic superhero movies that make more money then 99% of all the movies released in the last decade.
A Warner Bros insider states “It would definitely not be a follow up to Superman Returns." Sweet! I would like to forget that movie EVER happened.
It looks like that Batman Superman crossover we have all been dying to see might happen sooner then we thought? It is definitely more of possibility then it has been in the past.
