Duncan Jones to replace Aronofsky on Wolverine?
Duncan Jones spoke of his fondness for X-Man Wolverine at this weekend’s Kapow! Comic Con in London. Since it was announced that Darren Aronofsky would no longer be directing Origins sequel The Wolverine, many possible replacements have been mooted, with Jones a firm fan favourite.
Speaking to IGN, Jones said that the success of his latest, Source Code, had led to him being asked “to take a few meetings about some of the more studio films.”
When he was then asked what he thought of the ‘character’ Wolverine, Jones replied with a grin: “I think he’s a great character, and I don’t want to go on dangerous ground here, but I’d say he’s more interesting to me than Batman. I think they’ve made a very successful run of films with that and I think a good Wolverine film could be an amazing thing.”
Hm, good? I’m almost tempted to think that X-Men films are below Aronofsky.
