According to HV sources, Affleck met about Superman last week but is no longer pursuing it.
Aronofsky, said HV sources, is still in active talks. The Los Angeles Times reported similar source chatter.
Per HV: “If [Aronofsky] were to get the gig, there would be some irony: A decade ago, Aronofsky was attached to direct a Batman movie loosely based on a storyline written by Frank Miller. That didn’t happen, and it paved the way for Nolan to direct Batman Begins.”
