Ruined because it seems like he is a sell out after entering that franchise. And that makes "Wolverine 2" look like not "a David Slade movie" but "a Tom Rothman and Fox movie".

Such a meaningless comparison... Scorsese and Spielberg both did several great films before the movies you mentioned. And by that time they were already great visionary directors. Slade made only 2 good movies, just one indie thriller and one horror movie, not masterpieces, not "The Jaws" or "Taxi Driver".

I'm just biased because I love the comic book, and the film was just a bastardization of it. (Yeah yeah, I know that Steve Niles wrote both.) The film had good splatter scenes, but that's about it, imo.

Another director seems to be in the mix - Darren Aronofsky.

Quote:
On the X-Men: Wolverine 2 front, 20th Century Fox is between David Slade and Darren Aronofsky, I'm told. Slade, who just directed the summer hit The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, met over the weekend with Jackman on location where he is shooting Real Steel for DreamWorks. Aronofsky has also been talking with Jackman, and they have a good relationship that dates back to The Fountain, when Jackman stepped in after Brad Pitt dropped out. Jackman holds a lot of clout in the decision and while Aronofsky has some momentum of his own because of Black Swan, I'd say Slade has the edge. He is coming off a big summer movie with large-scale effects, which makes the studio comfortable. Fox went with Gavin Hood on the first Wolverine, and while he came from the Oscar-winning South African film Tsotsi, it was quite an adjustment moving into a tent pole sized undertaking, and Aronofsky has a similar prestige film background. Robert Schwentke, who created Comic-Con buzz for his film Red, had been in the mix--he was going to meet Jackman in Detroit along with Slade last weekend--but he opted out of the competition. Instead, Schwentke is eyeing projects that include Robert Ludlum's The Osterman Weekend and Universal's Ryan Reynolds-starrer RIPD as possible next pictures.

I don't mind either Slade or Aronofsky. Aronofsky is damn good in my eyes but with a film from Fox, the quality all depends on how much freedom Fox studios will give their directors.

I really don't see Aronofsky directing a film like this.

Wasn't Aronofsky supposed to Batman or Watchmen originally? Maybe both?

Just can't believe it. Aronofsky's too good. But "Wolverine in Japan" is so faaaaaaaaaaaaar from his style. His fans may be disappointed cause it will not be psychedelic.

But he is EXACTLY that kind of VISIONARY director I was talking about!

Aronofsky is a genius but I just don't see him fitting into the studio tentpole mix, it'll end up with Slade I reckon.

Aronofsky goddammit! God Fox make it happen! I hope this happens! I would actually have faith in this. He's worked with Jackman before so there's that. I'd love it. It's exactly what this film needs.

Technically speaking, compared to his other films The Wrestler was also considered far from his style too.

I would be happy if he took the job to direct but at the same time I think it might be a waste of his talent much like Fincher doing The Social Network.

I wasn't really talking about the quality of the film but the type of film. I'm sure The Social Network will be good but I just thought Fincher would have done something different for his next film, not so much a college drama type of film.

Aronofsky is a pipe dream... I think Fox just threw out a name to give the project some reputability. It was a probably a call to his agent and a "we'll get back to you" inquire.

I was originally vying for Slade, as a big fan of Hard Candy, but now that Aronosfky is a contender he's automatically my favorite to direct. While at this point I'll be happy with whomever gets selected -- and I'm just thrilled we have two directors in contention that are of superb caliber and extremely talented -- I really hope Aronosfky gets the job. He's one of my favorite directors and I think he would do wonders with this film. Something tells me Slade will get it but I can hope, right?

Aronofsky is a great director and one of my favorites, but I'm afraid even he can't make this work as long as Jackman (and Shuler-Donner) pull the strings. He/they don't understand **** about Wolverine, and I have the feeling Aronofsky doesn't really care about the roots (as the Batman script he was going to direct was awful).
