According to Deadline Christopher Nolan – who has undertaken a godfather role for this project – has started meeting directors for the upcoming Superman reboot – The Man of Steel. The short list of directors is said to be Tony Scott (Unstoppable, Man on Fire), Matt Reeves (Let Me In, Cloverfield), Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: Los Angeles), Duncan Jones (Moon), and Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen).

I personally would LOVE to see Duncan Jones direct this, Reeves and Snyder would also get me interested. Tony Scott hasn’t made a good film in years so I can’t see him being picked, and to be totally honest I haven’t seen enough of Jonathan Liebesman’s work to really give an informed opinion.

I’m happy Warner Bros are going in a new direction with Superman, for me Superman Returns was a giant piece of horse turd! Having Christopher Nolan on board has to help, his streak of great films is unparalleled at the moment- Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Prestige, The Dark Knight and Inception.

Deadline reports that Nolan will submit his choice to the studio within the next few weeks. If you weren’t already aware Warner Bros have to get The Man of Steel made before 2013 or they lose the rights to the iconic character.
