Christopher Nolan on Superman film

All those rumors last month about Christopher Nolan working on the new Superman movie? Seems they're a lot more true than DC wanted to admit at the time. Speaking to the LA Times, Nolan mentioned a few things about his involvement in the new Superman reboot. “We’re approaching it in a not dissimilar way in terms of trying to find an incredible story in a way that audiences can engage with it the way they engage with contemporary action films,” Nolan continued. “I think David’s approach is a very good way of doing just that.” Ok, admittedly, that's not a lot to go on as far as story rumors. It is positive though to know that Nolan and screenwriter David S. Goyer are feverishly working on the film. Nolan was even reverential in looking at the previous Superman films, subtly implying that we can probably see a lot of The Dark Knight in any new Superman film. “A lot of people have approached Superman in a lot of different ways. I only know the way that has worked for us that’s what I know how to do,” Nolan said, emphasizing the idea that Batman exists in a world where he is the only superhero and a similar approach to the Man of Steel would assure the integrity needed for the film. “Each serves to the internal logic of the story. They have nothing to do with each other.” I'm really excited for the thought of Nolan on the Superman movie. Honestly, I'd even be fine with him bringing Brandon Routh back as I felt he was a really good Superman/Clark Kent; the problem with Superman Returns was that it was too cerebral when Superman isn't really that type of character. Sure, it had Lex Luthor as the main villain with some crazy, insane plot to take over the world, but the film lacked Superman fully using his powers. Batman Begins and The Dark Knight have gotten to the core of what makes Batman Batman, and hopefully Nolan can infuse that same sense in the Superman reboot. Regardless I think it's an exciting time to be a comic book fan, as more and more properties are getting more attention when it comes to movies. In a way, we're getting films that more successfully connect with the viewer and extend the stories from the pages of the comic book to the big screen. For Superman, I could see a collaboration with Alex Ross on the film being very fruitful, with the possibility that we could see that sort of art deco Superman that Ross imbues in his art.
