Fresh off reports that he was in the running to direct the upcoming Superman reboot (that gig went to Zack Synder), Darren Aronofsky is now in talks to helm Wolverine 2 for 20th Century Fox, according to Vulture. He is reportedly choosing between this movie, the sequel to last year’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and Warner Bros.’ Tales From the Gangster Squad, a 1940s LAPD cops-and-robbers drama, as his next directorial project.
