Darren Aronofsky Might Reboot Superman

Would you believe a man can fly? You might, if you just made a movie about a girl who grows swan wings: The L.A. Times is reporting that Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky has met with Christopher Nolan to potentially helm the Nolan-produced reboot of Superman. The LAT notes that Aronofsky "has famously resisted taking on bigger-budget studio pictures in the interest of retaining creative control," but that's not quite true; in fact, Aronofsky once spent significant time developing both a Robocop reboot and a pre-Nolan adaptation of Batman: Year One, and the superhero-inclined director was even mentioned as in the running for Wolverine 2. Natalie Portman, start working on your Lois Lane. [24 Frames/LAT]
