Can Chris Nolan save Superman?

Look! Up on the Warner Bros. lot! It’s … Christopher Nolan, swooping in to potentially save another DC Comics franchise that has lost its way.

Deadline Hollywood has reported that Nolan – fan-fave director or “Batman Begins” and “The Dark Knight” – has been approached by Warner to serve as a guiding “Godfather” on a planned “Superman” reboot. It’s unlikely Nolan would direct the picture, as the article also states that Nolan has “hatched an idea” for a third Batman movie and probably would move on to that project instead.

The story does it make it clear, however, that the new Superman movie would not be a sequel to Bryan Singer’s “Superman Returns,” which was well-received by critics and fans but considered a financial disappointment thanks, in part, to its lofty budget. This would be a complete reboot, a la Batman when Nolan first took over or the current reboot on Spider-Man, Daredevil and countless other superhero characters. It’s a good time to be in the comic-book business. More on the Superman story as it develops.
