If that's the way it's going down, good for Aronofsky.
If more really talented directors declined to be part of the grind-em-out-blockbuster machine that Hollywood has become and did their own things the quality of movies would increase exponentially.
That's not going to happen, but it's still nice to occasionally see someone remember what the point of making all that money is.
Eh, The Wolverine
doesn't strike me as any more inherently silly than Black Swan
Regardless of silliness, no one is able to make a summer blockbuster superhero movie as an auteur vehicle. There is always a ton of studio influence and the whole thing tends to be much more of a group effort - perhaps that's not what the guy is looking for at this point in his career.
