Aronofsky doesn't do well with other franchises.He couldn't even commit to doing one episode of Lost.And his take on both batman and watchmen
would have been terrable.I say we will get Slade.

I think people are confusing the Wolverine (comic) character confused with the movie character.

There will be always a different and I truly think that Hugh Jackman loves the character, but like the writers/producers/etc.. know, you can truly adapt that comic character, you need to cut down, combine and re-work some details of that history for an effect movie translation. Now was Wolverine a great movie, nope...but it showed with the right writer behind the project there is so much room for the future. Origins was an average film with great characters and some selectively great acting, but just got rooted down by a terrible/average script.

I don't think Hugh cares that much about the actual character. Ever since he got producing duties on Wolverine films the character acts more and more like Hugh and less and less like Wolverine.

Yes, because every other superhero movie actor loves them just purely out of the goodness of their hearts.

I wouldn't say he doesn't care. I suspect he just doesn't know as much as he thinks he does about the character beyond anything Wolverine did in the movies. Hopefully that's something that improves with the next film.

He said that he read Miller's Japan story arc, didn't he? Although I'm also sure that he said he read the Origins comic, but I may have that one mixed up.

As to what's next for Slade, he says Internet reports of him working with Hugh Jackman on an upcoming Wolverine sequel are premature.

"I can say that I've met with Hugh Jackman and he is a very nice fellow, but you never know with these things," the director says. "There are several projects I'm interested in now, and that's one of them."

Hugh Jackman must exit the character at ONCE! You can't have a mere actor acting as creator, producer and Godfather over a character that has existed in its own right before him.
Please Hugh, be respectable and do others roles and don't disrespect this great character. It is obvious that you really have not grasped the essence of Wolverine.

And this has what to do with the director?

Keep the rant to the other thread, truth.

Darren Aronosfky Offered Wolverine 2?

Source: Vulture
October 5, 2010


Vulture is reporting that Black Swan helmer Darren Aronofksy is in negotiations to direct Wolverine 2 for Fox, now that Superman is off the table at Warner Bros.

The site says that Aronofsky was interested in taking on Superman, but the studio went with Zack Snyder instead, as was reported yesterday.

Wolverine 2 was written by Christopher McQuarrie and will again start Hugh Jackman in the title role.

The plot is said to involve Logan beginning a forbidden romance with a Japanese woman whose hand in marriage is, unfortunately, promised to another man. Since Logan won't take "no" for an answer, it puts him into battle with her father and her samurai-sword-wielding brothers.

It's sad that HR had to update us with this when the Superman boards had 10X more discussion on this matter in a day than these boards ever will. If I am Aronofsky... "Thanks but not thanks Rothman"....

It would be the first step in me actually caring about the film in any way. Still think its pointless.

if Aranofsky wants to direct a superhero/comic film, he should just wait until Nolan is done with Batman 3 so he can direct the Batman film that follows

there's no hope for Wolverine as long as it's under Fox

Aranofsky does well when he works on an original project that he's developed for years(and I mean years) and he's allowed to direct in an auteur way.

that will not happen if he works on wolverine and because he's more substance over style type of director, glossy style that is, if he does take wolverine on it will truly be the sequel to wolverine origins, another film directed by an auteur for fox.

2cents.

I've heard that The Social Network is a more fast-paced, more sanitized version of Zodiac. (I haven't seen Zodiac so I can't really say, but from what I've heard about it, it's plausible.)

IMO it's leagues above Aronofsky taking on the Wolverine franchise if he really were to do so. Aronofsky is WAAAY too good for Fox and their direction for Wolverine. I mean, really.

i think Aronofsky isnt right to direct this... seems like he just wants to direct ANY comic book movie.. i have no idea why though.

Im not liking any of the rumored directors ive heard so far... and the story i could care less.. thats a stupid origin of wolverine that doesnt need to be told. I think in hugh jackmans mind he's imagining the japanese story from batman begins.. but it wont be that way im sure.. it'll be like Last Samurai which is totally wrong for the character.

slippery slope

He tried to do a Lone Wolf and Cub movie a while back that didn't get off the ground. Robocop didn't either.

Aronofsky should stay far away from this project. He honestly doesn't need Wolverine 2 and it would only end in disaster. Look at what happened with Wolverine anyway. Though I don't know how much of the movie was the director's actual vision. Though I still think the director was overrated anyway. Rendition was garbage.
