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

Sure, but that's the difference that felled Superman III and Superman IV, which invented their stories and even their concepts from whole cloth. There wasn't any real adaptation going on; such strikes me as far more risky--artistically and economically--than simply taking a well-received work from another medium and reinventing it for the screen.

Studio executives arbiting the taste of millions is also how we got the first Wolverine. At least a well-liked comic, however niche, provides a statistically significant sample size.
