It looks like Darren Aronofsky has said no to directing the next Wolverine movie with Fox Studios, after deciding that a year away from his family was not going to sit well with him – despite the supposedly amazing script and opportunity to work with Hugh Jackman. Considering Aronofsky’s dealt us amazing films like Black Swan, Requiem for a Dream and The Wrestler, I think Wolverine has been abandoned by a super capable and exciting candidate for the director’s chair. Sad.
Never fear, Fox will find someone else. And while it won’t be the predicted David Slade or Robert Schwentke, we can only hope that it will be someone who can bring back one of the most iconic of the X-Men to the screen with a little more dignity than last time.
