Re: Darren Aronosfky (!) a contender to direct "Wolverine 2"

Actually Darren reportedly slammed the "Superman" script calling it "messy" and that he didn't like it and this is supposed to be the reason why he passed on the project.
The rumor that Vulture ran didn't attribute a statement like that directly to Aronofsky, and they didn't say Aronofsky passed but that Warners went with Snyder because they feel he can get the film into shape faster than Aronofsky. This is how Vulture wrote it up:

"We're told by knowledgeable insiders the reason Warner Bros. picked Snyder for Man of Steel is that the script by David Goyer was rushed, is still a bit of a mess, and that Warner Bros. needs someone who won't spend months or even years trying to get it just right (i.e. Aronofsky), because time is the one thing they don't have: The studio must have a new Superman movie in production by 2011 or they'll be subject to potential lawsuits by the heirs of the superhero's creators.

"We're told that Snyder was not really Warner's first choice to direct Superman, but that a director needed to be hired imminently. Privately, even Snyder has confided to agency sources that the current Superman script needs work, but clearly Warner Bros. believes he can get it done faster than Aronofsky."
"I'll see you in another life, brother."
