I think Martin Campbell might be a great Superman director. He's already successfully revived the James Bond franchise twice, with Goldeneye & Casino Royale. He also gave us another surprisingly successful revival with The Mask of Zorro.
And has anyone asked Richard Donner or Tom Mankiewicz if they're interested in coming back to the property?
Campbell is doing Green Lantern for WB. If it's a hit, they could well ask him to relaunch Superman for them; he doesn't really like sequels and might prefer to do that than GL2. Incidentally, the GL script is supposed to feature a Clark Kent cameo, so Campbell might be perfectly placed to put the Man of Steel back on the big screen.
IIRC, Richard Donner is effectively retired from directing. But I think that WB could do a lot worse than to invite him and Mankiewicz back as consultants for any future movie.
