Jonathan Nolan being tapped to direct “Superman” for Warner?

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Marvel Comics hogged most of the headlines last weekend as news broke that Ed Norton no longer would play The Hulk, and speculation ran rampant regarding who would replace him.

Today, D.C. Comics tries to wrestle attention back to one of their major film properties: Superman. GeekTyrant is reporting that Jonathan Nolan, brother of reputed “Batman Begins” and “The Dark Knight” director Christopher Nolan, will take over directorial reigns on a Superman film that he’s currently developing with David S. Goyer. That counters recent rumors that “Harry Potter” and “Percy Jackson” director Chris Columbus would be offered the gig.

Jonathan Nolan makes sense, since he and his brother were brought in to shepherd the project for Warner Bros., and Chris is currently occupied promoting “Inception” and prepping a third Batman adventure for the studio. Why not keep things in the family, so to speak? I also wouldn’t rule out the possibility of seeing the siblings collaborate in a Wachowski-style effort. At the very least, expect Chris to be around as a mentor for Jonathan, considering this would be his first turn in the director’s chair.

That is, if this is confirmed. We are a long way from seeing Superman take flight. But since we know the project is coming, I’d love to see Jonathan Nolan get a crack at directing it.
