Now that Darren Aronofsky's out of the running to Superman, he's entered negotiations to helm Wolverine 2. Apparently Aronofsky was passed over for Superman because the script's in bad shape, and Warner Bros. has no time for perfectionism. Weird!
Now that Zack Snyder is directing the next Superman movie, Aronofsky's reps are negotiating with Fox over Wolverine 2. Vulture reports that Aronofsky was originally interested in directing the new Superman, in which Clark Kent is a globe-hopping journalist who's ambivalent on the prospect of becoming Superman. Now that Snyder's in the director's chair, Aronofsky's giving Wolverine goes to Japan greater consideration.
