Whoa! Christopher Nolan to develop Superman reboot!

02.09.2010

How's this for some shocking news for your Tuesday morning?! Deadline Hollywood is reporting that Christopher Nolan has agreed to develop a SUPERMAN reboot at Warner Bros! Nolan, it appears, will not write or direct the film but will be actively involved in "mentoring" the production and acting as a "godfather" so-to-speak to the creative team. Deadline is referring to the film as SUPERMAN 3.0 though it's likely that's just a cheeky reference to this being the third time the franchise has been started.

As they stress, and I would like to reiterate, this SUPERMAN project is in the very nascent stages of development. (So please NO "Emily Blunt as Lois Lane!!!" rumors for at least a few months.) While the film would "definitely not" be any kind of follow-up to SUPERMAN RETURNS, they claim that neither director Bryan Singer or star Brandon Routh have been giving their walking papers yet (YET...). They claim that there really isn't a plan yet for what they want to do just an agreement that Nolan will be helping them do it.

Their report also includes word that Nolan has officially hatched his concept for the third BATMAN movie and that David Goyer and Jonah Nolan are busy working on the script. So I guess that means the rumors about "Emily Blunt as Catwoman" can start again. Oh well, I guess you gotta take a little bad news to go with the good!

Extra Tidbit: Didn't see this coming...

This is my favorite site bar none, but I swear to f@#$ing god if this is another joke like last year with the April Fool's prank (Cameron showing Nolan how to digitally bring back Ledger, etc.) I will never look at this website ever again...

This is great!

It's nice to see that Warner Bros. is taking a page out of Marvel Studio's book and creating a more collaborative environment amongst the film makers who are creating comic book movies. That being said, I hope that Nolan isn't stretching himself too thin.

Thank God!

There is no one I trust more in Hollywood with a project than Christopher Nolan. Not only am I glad to know that Bats 3 is getting rolling, but that Supes reboot has a chance! Something tells me that a perfectionist like Nolan will end up getting more involved with the supes reboot as time goes on. What do yall think?

It kinda makes sense though, if Nolan want to rest from Inception and Batman to make Superman in the mean time. And later on tie some knot from Superman with the next Batman movie. Wait, I'm confusing myself. Haha. Anyhow, with Nolan on Superman project, I'm having a bit more confidence in the franchise. If Nolan can't reboot it, bring in Michael Bay and blow some stuff up, like his Verizon commercial. Awesome!

Not overly bothered really

They can do what they like with Superman really, it doesn't affect me overly but they really should keep Brandon Routh. He didn't put a foot wrong with either of the roles.

WHY CHRIS? WHY?

I'm getting a bittersweet vibe out this. I really don't like this and before everyone start's flaming me on this just know this is my personal opinion on how I feel about the matter. I love Nolan's Batman franchise and I think he's superb if not breathtaking filmmaker. He's made Batman HIS film as a story seen through HIS vision which is why I can't see a Superman film follow traits similar to Nolan's style. That's what makes individual superhero movies.

He's made Batman HIS film as a story seen through HIS vision which is why I can't see a Superman film follow traits similar to Nolan's style. That's what makes individual superhero movies. Even if Nolan is just overseeing the project like a Producer's-producer, the project would still have his flair to it. It's not unique enough to stand alone and away from the Batman franchise or at least not enough to make it on it's own. Superman has it's own world to it with a different atmosphere that just wouldn't feel right if told though Nolan-format/style or any bit of mentoring he does. We're too familiar with how he films his stories; we'll recognize at least some themes. If Superman's coming back, and I think it should, then at least let it run on it's own in contrast; light and dark- Superman and Batman. I wish they had J.J. Abrams Directing with Kevin Smith as Producer/mentor since they make such an awesome team. Have you seen the visual style of Star Trek? It speaks SUPERMAN! This is just me. I'll still support the man in the end but right now I'm just ranting. Too much steam too soon.

I also hate the term realistic, cause face it, it doesnt mean possible, it means convincing. Big difference.

Personally, I enjoyed Superman Returns, but I can see why others didn't and have no problem with them rebooting, or whatever you want to call it. Having Nolan envolved is awesome, but like others have said I don't want them to try to make Superman dark/realistic. I'm also thrilled to hear that things are beginning to move on Batman 3.

Bring on Batman Vs. Superman!

Here's why a Batman/Superman tie-in is possible: The story of Superman is all about an alien coming to earth and having alien abilities. He is "super" because he is from another planet and has a different mass than humans, which means earth's gravity does not affect him they way it affects humans. Parts of Superman's myth are actually scientifically plausible. My point is, Superman is as realistic as a guy dressing up like a bat, which Nolan made possible to accept without question. The

The inclusion of Nolan will be key to making Superman believable.

why are they wasting their time with superman?? The character is so boring to begin with I can't see anyway to make a movie about him interesting. The reason batman movies are so successful is because he is a real guy with real weaknesses. Superman has no weakness so nobody can beat him. Unless you have a little green rock, then anyone can beat him. It is ridiculous.

If, however, they are determined to make another superman movie they should make Tom Welling Superman. Smallville is coming to

Nolan is probably one of the very few filmmakers today that can be considered a true MASTER of the craft.... some film makers have made great films but have made turkeys too... nolans on a high, is in total control of his skills, and i'mgathering WB have seen inception and are blown away with it....

what exactly does

i think everyone here is expecting nolan to deliver a superman movie that on par with what he did with batman... but

this could simply mean the Superman team is going to Christopher Nolan and saying "hey, you made the most successful DC movie to date.... any tips?"

last i heard there was no movement on future superman movies. where did this suddenly come from?

i really picture evil studio execs came up with this one. how do we get on the fanboys side? oh, lets mention christopher

Very cool.

Two things:

1)DO NOT IN ANY WAY MAKE THIS REALISTIC LIKE BATMAN. SUPERMAN IS NOT REALISTIC. Stay 100% true to the comics.

2) Tie it in with Batman and the rest of the DC movie universe.

The key word...MENTORING.

Everyone's getting excited about Nolan who is working on the Superman movie, but he's acting as a mentor. He's not directing or producing (yet). I loved the revamped Batman movies, and I also liked Superman returns, but howzabout we give it a few decades for a reboot, instead of jumping on the reboot setting in Hollywood, eh.

To be honest I'm glad he's not directing this. As much as he's a great filmmaker (All his movies barring Insomnia rock!) he'd be wrong for this film much in the same way I said Singer would be wrong for Superman Returns. They're instinctively dark filmmakers and Superman just isn't dark. I'm assuming he knows this and will help select a creative team that suits the tone of Superman. That being said this is a step in the right direction...

Well, man, I could see how some people would have a problem with this. Nolan's style works very well in the context of Batman, but it doesn't mean Superman has to be gritty and grounded in realism. Plus, imagine if he directs it and it falls below expectations. You know how people are. They'd go from worshipping him to going completely turncoat, calling him a hack and crying "reboot".

i loved supes returns a lot of ppl did. just cuz it didnt make 500 mil is no reason for WB to boot Routh, Singer, nor Spacey. it was a bit long and had some irrelevant parts. but with some of nolans elements, and keeping the SR cast and crew, this could be a fantastic movie - $500 million or not.

Great news! I didn't mind Superman Returns, in fact I kind of liked it. It was a fun throw-back to my childhood. I think they should keep Routh (an awesome Supes and even better Kent, IMHO) and ditch Singer. I doubt they'll keep Routh, but oh well. I am excited nonetheless.

I thought Spacey did a great job as Luther, but I'll be happier when we get to see someone new. If you've only seen the movies you wouldn't know Superman had any other enemies. He comes off as weak having so much trouble with old bald guy.

WHOAH!

When I first saw the headlines, I thought: "Whoah! He's helming both of DC flagship heroes?!" Now that I read a little closer, it looks like he's just going to produce the new Superman film. Still, I think having Nolan on board could give Supes the jump start he's needed ever since Richard Donner left the franchise in 1980.

It gets worse...

It's gonna be hilarious how he's going to come up with some smart-ass idea to make Superman plausible. TDK was awful when it should have been fantastic (and Batman Begins was pretty lame as well). His hearts in the right place, but he isn't as smart as he thinks he is.

Yo mate.
Awful is a big word. You can say you disliked it or even hated it.
But it doesnt change the fact that its a quality film.

Nah... it's a polished turd. I appreciate the effort and hard-work that went into it, but it just falls flat on so many levels. It contradicts what it wants to be and for that, it's awful.

In this case Im guessing 94% of film critics are wrong. They obviously havent seen enough movies to judge that one well.

Hey we are all entitled to our opinions. Please explain though why they fell flat.

I think the masses just got hypnotized by its look and feel and Heath's performance. I'm not talking for everyone else though, and I really don't get it. I do know that I watched the movie with a few guys that raved the movie (they gave it high grades), and when all was done it's like they'd seen a totally different movie.

Anyway, I bothered to write this half-assed review a while back if you want to read it: [link]

based on this, and the review you wrote - 3 things come to mind.

1. You don't address the suspension of disbelief that is required of a superhero movie. This isn't David Mamet's Heist - it's Batman. These character's can't exist in real life - so your critique of the film really should be laid at the feet of the comic book industry. There's no "real world" way of telling this. Your nitpicking of Batman's eye makeup is probably the best fine-point example of this. Aside from the fact that

Your nitpicking of Batman's eye makeup is probably the best fine-point example of this. Aside from the fact that this little trick predates Nolan's take on Batman - it's clearly a conceit. The same type of conceit that enables the premise of the film, and the character to exist at all. There are examples of real-life people who exist outside of the law to stop criminals. They are called vigilantes, and they usually have pretty short, boring careers.

2. "It contradicts what it wants to be." It sounds like it hasn't occurred to you that you may be mistaken in your assumption about what it wants to be.

3. You spend a lot of time in your review criticizing dialog as self-important. In my opinion, I wouldn't say the dialog is particularly memorable - but that's because it's mostly in service of the plot.

1 - It goes without saying that these types of films require suspension of disbelief, and it that sense I don't mean the movie fails because batman does crazy shit or has crazy gadgets. Its really more about the plot devices that make it convenient for any character to be who they have to be at any given moment in the film. As for the eye-make it was a SMALL point. No time to get into it now (but I'd love to:)).

2 - Nah... Nolan has said it again and again that this is a "real-world" batman,

2 - Nah... Nolan has said it again and again that this is a "real-world" batman, but I get that he meant that only to a certain extent. Again, I have no issue with suspending disbelief for a film, but Nolan stretches it thin trying to make that plot work. He fails.

3 - When you have music and visuals to aid your story-telling, if you're still having characters spell everything that's going on out for you, then you're doing a bad job.

If this is somehow confirmed, I think it would be amazingly badass. Superman without all the villainous camp play... fantastic. Lets hope its true. And awesome as to the Bats 3 news... again IF its confirmed and true... I'm all about it and on board.

YAY!

Nolan knowns how to make anything and everything great. It seems DC is finally getting their heads out of their asses. Superman coming back, Batman 3 in early pre-production, and Green Lantern coming out next year.
