Forbes Reveal Their Top 10 Directors To Take Over From Nolan After TDKR

Affleck? Refn? Snyder? The site reveal ten names they say are "most likely on the list" to take over from Christopher Nolan on WB's Batman franchise after The Dark Knight Rises..

I'm going to assume these guys know what they are talking about, but this doesn't seem to be put together as a "wishlist" type thing, they seem to suggest that the following names may really be in the running! We're going to assume that they don't know anything for certain however, and these directors are just who they feel are most likely on Warner Bros. radar. Either way, it's a very interesting assemblage of names..

Ben Affleck, Duncan Jones, Nicolas Winding Refn, Guy Ritchie, David Yates, Neil Blomkamp, Mathew Vaughn, Rupert Wyatt, Zack Snyder and Darren Aronofsky

At the end of the article, Forbes writer Mark Huges stresses:

"This is not my list of personal preferences, FYI — although I’d be fine/happy with anybody on this list — so remember this is a list of directors I think will probably be offered the job."

Hmmm. If you click on the link below you can read his reasons behind the names he chose. Some make a lot of sense, others...might be a stretch imo. But it's still very well thought out, and makes you think a couple of these guys may actually end up in the running when Christopher Nolan has Batman hang up the cowl. What do you guys think? I know there are a few names I would be very happy with anyway.
