Deadline Hollywood reports that Director Christopher Nolan (Batman Begins and the Dark Knight) is set to lead development of a reboot of the faltering Superman film franchise. The Man of Steel last graced the silver screen with his presence in 2006’s underwhelming Superman Returns.

Nolan is best known for his similar resurrection of the Batman franchise, so the pick seems like a slam dunk for Warner Bros. While it seems unlikely that Nolan will sit in the director’s chair for the new Supes film, long time collaborators Jonathan Nolan, and David Goyer are said to be set to script the reboot.

“Superman v 3.0” is in the very infancy of development, we will be sure to hear more on this interesting project as the year goes on.

    I liked Bryan Singer's approach. Yes, I am he. But Nolan could be interesting (fanboy in me screams: 'as long as he doesn't dark it up!).

    Yeah, I'm not sure that Nolan and Goyer's sensibilities would fit with Superman. But as I didn't care for Superman Returns, I am ready for a fresh approach.

    Oh where oh where shall I meet another human being who also liked Superman Returns?! I cryeth out to thee! ... thus endeth the drama class with grammar learned from the Lee/Kirby Thor.

    No matter what they say,I still prefer Nolan's film.A very good director together with his strong dedication to his work,that's why when we heard of Batman or Superman,it's indeed a movie hit.A Christopher Nolan directed <a rev="vote for" title="Chris Nolan?s Superman reboot is coming, comic film fans" href="http://personalmoneystore.com/moneyblog/2010/02/09/superman-reboot-film/ ">Superman reboot film</a> might be worth watching. If it's half as good as Batman Begins or The Dark Knight, then it will be worth it.I can also even getting payday loans to get to the first showing.The last one was good and I really enjoyed watching it! I even repeat to watch the movie because it was so good.I know "Superman Reboot will gather lots of criticisms but for me,it will be tagged as one of the best movies of the year plus the director of it,Christopher Nolan.Good luck!
