Comic News Round-Up: Jonathan Nolan directing Superman? This chick for Mary-Jane in Spider-Man?

07.13.2010

According to a little site called GeekTyrant, they have some insight into the Superman reboot.

A couple of sources on the Warner Bros. lot are saying that Jonathan Nolan is the one that has been attached to direct the reboot. He's also been at the studio doing a lot of pre-development stuff. They say the main reason Christopher Nolan signed on as producer was to help his brother.

GeekTyrant just says to log this one as a rumor until or if a confirmation comes out. Wise idea.

Then they add that auditions are underway for the casting of the film. One name that they drop is CHUCK's Zachary Levi. The site was not sure what role he went out for, but only guess that Levi auditioned for The Man of Steel himself. I could maybe see him as Clark Kent, but is he the guy who could don the Supes suit?

On to hot romance interests, this heads up came from /Film via The Playlist.

Wrapped in a rumor about Anton Yelchin or Alden Ehrenreich (TETRO) playing Harry Osborn in the Spider-Man reboot is news of a possible Mary Jane.

Some girl I've never heard of named, Elena Satine tweeted this after Andrew Garfield was named the new Spidey, "Garfield is Spidey!!!! Now Alden Ehrenreich should get a nice consolation prize (cough HARRY cough) and we're rolling. How about MJ? Hmm..." Does this mean that she auditioned? Or is she just hoping that someone will read her cries and cast her in the part?

Satine has taken a few bit parts in several television shows like MELROSE PLACE and COLD CASE. She will also be seen in the upcoming Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston rom-com JUST GO WITH IT.

This is WB's flagship superhero franchise.

It is not a job for a novice.
While I wish Jonah the best of luck, I would prefer to have seen a "proof" movie from him, like the Wachowskis did with "Bound" before they made "The Matrix".

Whoever they go with, hopefully Mary Jane won't look as beat and haggard as Kirsten Dunst's did. Hopefully this MJ's a knockout, but a knockout who can ACT, which is a rarity.

On the one hand it's cool that Nolan is involved and his brother/co writing partner in crime could direct but...Supes is one big ass film to hand a first time director no matter who you're related to! That could go either way...

I have the same feelings about Zack Levi possibly auditioning for Superman. He has a lot of the CK vibe but Superman is a whole other issue. It's like the John Krasinski thing with Captain America (which is funny cuz I always thought he and Zack Levi could be

As for that chick...she looks sexy enough. Just make her fun dammit!

I like both of these rumors.

That girl is gorgeous. I just hope she can act. She is a stunner! And John Nolan is a great writer, I'd like to see him direct, why not start with Supes?

Jonathan Nolan...

i don't know.
He's just completely unknown as a director. Sure the guy might be able to write a good story but so can David Goyer and he seems not able to direct worth a dime.

Elena Satine, you have stolen my heart!!!!!

Good LORD! MJ!!! That girl is PERFECTION!!!! AND she has a BA in Acting. Looks like Sony has struck gold! Its funny that a single coy tweet has caused such a massive internet frenzy, she is clearly somethin special. She'd definitely sell me a ticket to this or any movie for that matter.

Why are they letting a guy who's never directed anything direct Superman? Just cause his name is Nolan? how silly.

If Johnathan Nolan has half the talent his brother has, the new Superman will be the third greatest superhero movie ever made. I just hope they give Routh another chance. Superman Returns was decent, but it suffered from Singer's poor vision for that particular revival. I don't see why Routh, who put in a great Supes/Kent performance, should get the boot just because Singer messed up.

Hmm...I wouldn't mind seeing how Johnathan handles the reigns as a director. I also wouldn't mind staring at that gorgeous red head in the new Spider Man film. That is, of course, if I go see it. Not too thrilled about the reboot. But, damn, that girl is gorgeous.

I still think Ehrenreich could've gotten a lot more mileage than Garfield our of playing Spider-Man (not just age, but Garfield's star is rising without the super-hero role already).

I reserve any opinion about MJ until there is confirmation, other than Elena Satine is a pretty cool name.

Zack Levi CAN Play Superman

I think Zack Levi should be more than capable at playing Superman. In fact, I think he would be one of the better options of an actor who can pull off the distinction between Clark Kent and Superman. Since the physical difference between the two is only his glasses, the actor needs to pull off a bumbling, clumsy character while Clark, and then a certain strength and charm as Superman. Zack can play clumsy and nerdy, but he also can play charming and serious very well. Also, on Chuck he has

Zack can play clumsy and nerdy, but he also can play charming and serious very well. Also, on Chuck he has been doing a lot more action scenes, proving he is capable of handling the more physically demanding scenes. I think he would be a great choice.

And I think Jonathan Nolan should do fine. The benefit of having his director brother serving as producer is he can give Jonah some advice and assistance if he has any problems. Besides, Jonah Nolan is an unknown, albeit one that is working with one of the better directors of our time. David Goyer has already proven he can't direct, and Chris serving as producer probably won't change that.

I'm tired of Mary Jane even though that chick is really hot. Bring on Black Cat. Zooey Deschanel would do a good job.

WTF!? Jonathan Nolan is not a director. He has never directed anything in his entire life, and they are going to hand him the keys for a hundred million dollar franchise because of who his brother is? Fuck that.

In fact he is not even a good solo writer (remember Terminator Salvation). This is a mistake of epic proportions.

Nolan and Paul Haggis apparently polished the Terminator script to accommodate Bale, but didn't contribute enough to receive credit. I'd lay the blame on the two guys that did get credit and also wrote T3 and Catwoman and how they get work, I don't know.

Stop the presses!

That redhead is smoookin!

Anywho. Since seeing Brandon Routh on Chuck. I have thought they should Cast Levi as Clark Kent, & Keep Brandon as Supes. I they both look a lot alike. & Zach is great at playing the bumbling nerd. While Routh wasn't very good as clark. But a pretty darn good Superman. I think that would be pretty cool. But wishful thinking.

Thank you Joblo for the pic. Gives me something to...um do later.

I don't mind if Jonathan Nolan is directing Superman if his brother Chris is producing because you know that Chris will put all his effort into making the best Superman he can.

As for casting, Zachary Levi would not make a good Kent/Superman. The only guy who I can think of making a great Kent/Superman is Jon Hamm. The guy would be perfect and would fantastic casting. I want a man to play Superman, not some skinny, scrawny guy.

I disagree, but respect your opinion regarding Levi. Jon Hamm might do good, but I think Levi could pull it off. Just because Levi plays a nerdy character currently doesn't mean he can't do anything more serious (in fact, it seems like it would be a natural transition for him).

Levi is a good actor but I just want an older Kent/Superman not a young fresh face. I want this Superman to look like he has been Superman for a long time and has been fighting crime for a long time. I think Hamm fits the old, experienced rugged look of Kent/Superman.

Emma Stone, Emma Roberts, or Mary Elizabeth Winstead are my picks.

As for Supes, Josh Hartnett, Elijah Wood (could pull off Clark Kent but I don't know about Superman), or Henry Cavill.
