The Wolverine franchise needs Aronofsky more than Aronofsky needs the Wolverine franchise, but the end result should be interesting.

The only reason I think Aronofsky wants to do this is that if the BO is good he get his other projects faster to coming to reality. The only worries I have is letting him making a good movie without studio interference.

Hopefully if Darren does this it will do for him what Batman Begins and The Dark Knight have done for Nolan, and I think those are as much "Nolan" Films as Memento, The Prestige and Inception are.

They both need each other. Aronofsky needs a big budget tent pole to raise his status as a director.

But the new Batman franchise at least was a reboot where Nolan could wipe the slate clean and start completely over. Nobody mandated that he use the Schumacher chronology.

Aronofsky would be given the crap known as X3 and Wolverine to work with.

I've said this before, and I will say it again: I love Aronofsky but his Batman: Year One script was awful, and he was willing to bring Watchmen into 2000s in his version. So, he clearly gives a little damn about the source material. And we already know how well Fox and Jackman pay their respects to the funny books...

I hope for the best, but...

I really don't agree with this at all.

I know Aronofsky has a reputation as a very good and exciting director but i'm not sure he is what this franchise needs, if he does sign up it'll be interesting to see how it all develops though.

At this point I think the most you can hope for is a Wolverine film that's good, not one that's super faithful to the books. Not that Aronofsky is a guarantee success but he has the best chance out of all of the choices we've heard so far IMO.

That's true. But I'm a big fan of his work so I have great faith in him if he takes the job.

There's nothing in the Japan story that references anything about continuity, though.

Darren Aronofsky is the best thing that could happen to Wolverine. Everybody keep your fingers crossed.

No, the reason why he's doing it is that since all his previous movies didn't do well in the BO and he'll have to prove to the studios that he can do a movie that is a commercial success in order to have the trust and budget for his other projects, like The Tiger for an example.

From Baseline First Look at: http://community.icontact.com/p/base...ctober-15-2010

THE TALENT TICKER


Darren Aronofsky will direct 20th Century Fox’s “Wolverine,” the sequel to the 2009 comic book adaptation, "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," starring Hugh Jackman…


As far as I know, this site isn't known for jumping the gun. So I guess he's already signed on?

Epic win for Hugh and Wolverine 2. I know a lot of critics are wondering why Aronofsky would do a film like this but, he's got to branch out into other areas. He's basically only done independent films. I'm sure he was itching to do at least one, big studio film.

And since he and Hugh seem to be real tight, after their experience together on the Fountain, I think you're going to see Hugh's best performance since the Fountain and X2 and I think, like Nolan, Aronofsky will bring something fresh to the table.

Vaughn and Aronofsky together will bring X-Men back from the brink. The next two years are going to be really, really good for X-Men.

Fox...just stay out of the way.

Great that it's confirmed. It will be interesting to see Aronofsky tackling his first studio movie, hopefully without little to no studio interference, although that's doubtful. I won't get my expectations high, but however the end results I will watch it just because Aronofsky is involved.

Perhaps Darren can get a restraining order against FOX.
