Jonah Nolan not Directing Superman Reboot?
— Posted by Rodney
International Friend Kalelship tipped me off to a few articles about the Superman Reboot and this one talks about Jonah Nolan, brother and writing partner to Christopher Nolan directing Superman.
Now the rumour is that Jonah’s consideration was the rumour. He apparently isn’t even being considered, but he will still contribute to the writing.
This part will disappoint some fans:
I actually agree with that sentiment entirely. Those who do not learn from their mistakes are doomed to repeat them. Goyer has recognized his mistakes and could potentially learn from them and hit it out of the park. That is a very strong sentiment there and it builds a lot of confidence in Goyer for me.
Christopher Nolan has been elevated to a rare status in Hollywood. Trust.
Its beyond being a fan and appreciating his work. When Nolan says he picks a certain actor, people don’t question it. They assume he has a plan, and that it will all work out. Most other directors, no matter what kind of reputation they have, if they make a questionable decision its Guilty Until Proven Innocent. Nolan inspires something different than that.
His brother, while a gifted writer has no directing experience. Should we hand him over a massive franchise that if done poorly would bury the character for a long time (otherwise known as the Schumaker Syndrome. See Batman) But rumour reports Nolan says he wants him to do it and people say its fine.
If Nolan said Uwe Boll was directing the next Superman, fans would just say “that’s fine” and assume that Nolan had a talk with him or will be watching closely.
