No! Its a New Superman Film!

It's Official: Nolan is to Reboot the Superman Franchise; Dark Knight director to use Batman approach for the Man of Steel. UK, March 10, 2010 - It's official: Christopher Nolan (http://uk.stars.ign.com/objects/910/910810.html) is taking control of a new Superman movie franchise.

Back in February, we heard rumours that (http://uk.movies.ign.com/articles/106/1067850p1.html) The Dark Knight (http://uk.movies.ign.com/objects/752/752133.html) director would "godfather" a rebooted Man of Steel (http://uk.movies.ign.com/objects/812/812928.html) series, and now Nolan has confirmed the news in an interview with The Los Angeles Times (http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/herocomplex/2010/03/christopher-nolan-takes-flight-with-superman-we-have-a-fantastic-story-1.html).

"It's very exciting, we have a fantastic story," he said. "We feel we can do it right. We know the milieu, if you will, we know the genre and how to get it done right."

Nolan is keeping his cards close to his chest on specifics about the plot or who would direct the film, but he did say that Batman collaborator David Goyer (http://uk.stars.ign.com/objects/913/913943.html) was working on the screenplay, and that the idea for Superman came when the pair was struggling on Batman 3 (http://uk.movies.ign.com/objects/961/961205.html).

"He basically told me, 'I have this thought about how you would approach Superman. I immediately got it, loved it and thought: That is a way of approaching the story I've never seen before that makes it incredibly exciting. I wanted to get Emma [Thomas -- his wife and co-producer] and I involved in shepherding the project right away and getting it to the studio and getting it going in an exciting way."

He wouldn't go into specifics, but it seems the pair will approach the story in the same way they did Batman.

"A lot of people have approached Superman in a lot of different ways. I only know the way that has worked for us that's what I know how to do... We're [...] trying to find an incredible story in a way that audiences can engage with it the way they engage with contemporary action films. I think David's approach is a very good way of doing just that."

Finally, it seems we shouldn't expect Superman and Batman to team up anytime soon. "Each serves to the internal logic of the story. They have nothing to do with each other." Are you Excited Nolan is finally and officially onboard or Worried about what he'll do with the Man of Steel series?

Personally, if its got the same feel and atmosphere as Dark Knight, then I'm in!

But the idea was good, thanks for sharing.

Honestly, I don't like Superman.
His movies are boring.
