13 candidates the 'Dark Knight' director should consider before sealing any deal
Who will helm the Man of Steel's return?
What Chris Nolan, David Goyer and Jonathan Nolan have concocted for a new big screen reboot of "Superman" is still being kept secret, but with a looming 2012 release date word is starting to get around that a director is finally begin sought after for the potential blockbuster.
Chris Nolan has gone on the record numerous times that he will only produce and not direct, which means whoever comes on board will have the delicate balance of trying to meld their vision for the Man of Steel with the acclaimed maestro behind "The Dark Knight," "Inception" and "Memento." Will that scare off a lot of potential helmers? It probably depends on their love of Metropolis and how much WB and Legendary are planing to compensate a potential new helmer. Now some dream contenders are just unrealistic. The Coen Bros.? Not a present day Supes. Steven Spielberg? Keep dreaming. Richard Donner? Sure, and maybe William Shatner will make a cameo in "Star Trek 2."
With that in mind, we're running down the already publicly discussed candidates with a few contenders of our own. And bizarrely, many of them are British. Just like Nolan. Interesting...
