Maybe. But Aronofsky would have made an interesting and unique film no matter what. Mangold, on the other hand, makes well-made, competent films. Not great ones.
I'd argue the closest he's ever come to achieving greatness is 3:10 to Yuma, but that was made without the corporate interests tied to a project like Wolverine. Aronofsky has clout with the studio, Mangold on the other hand...
