If you thought Zack Snyder’s take on the Man of Steel was dark, just imagine Darren Aronofsky’s version.
Speaking with CinePop, the mother! director expressed interest in helming a Superman movie.
“I mean, you know, Superman would always be interesting,” Aronofsky said. “But they’re already deep into reinventing him, so that’s not going to happen for a long time.”
Aronofsky went on to discuss how he would want “to do something unique.” Seeing how people have certain expectations for this genre, though, that might be difficult to pull off.
“Audiences who goes to see those films expect a certain type of movie. But I guess a lot of the great superhero titles are done, people have used them up. So now it’s kinda characters that aren’t as interesting. But you never know. We’ll see what comes my way.”
An untitled Superman project is currently on the table, although a director hasn’t been hired yet. Aronofsky isn’t the only filmmaker that’s expressed interest, as Matthew Vaughn of Kingsman has reportedly been in talks with DC and Warner Bros.
