Superman May go the Way of the Dark Knight

Warner Bros. is trying to get Superman up and running again and has enlisted Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan to get it done.

According to Deadline Hollywood:

Our insiders say that the brains behind rebooted Batman has been asked to play a "godfather" role and ensure The Man of Steel gets off the ground after a 3 1/2-year hiatus. Nolan's leadership of the project can set it in the right direction with the critics and the fans, not to mention at the box office...

Let us emphasize that Superman 3.0 is in the early stages of development. And we doubt Nolan would direct. This wouldn't be a sequel to Superman Returns but a completely fresh franchise. AS one of our insiders reassures: "It would definitely not be a follow up to Superman Returns."

Warner Bros. was not happy with Bryan Singer's 2006 reboot of the Superman franchise and is obviously looking to start from scratch.

News of David Goyer leaving Flash forward has begun speculation that he left to begin work on a third Batman movie, which Deadline Hollywood also confirmed:

Now [Nolan's] brother and frequent collaborator Jonathan Nolan and David Goyer who co-wrote Batman Begins and penned the story for The Dark Knight, are off scripting it.

So what are you excited about more? A new Superman movie or a third Batman movie?
