Why Is The New Superman Movie Making Harry Knowles Sigh?

C’mon, Harry – whatever it is, you can tell us.

Harry Knowles, the Headgeek himself, popped up today in the AICN Talkbacks (ie. fandom’s equivalent of the World War II trenches, and all of his own making). He had something to say about Deadline’s list of Chris Nolan’s preferred Superman directors. Here’s his comment:

I wouldn’t place money that it’ll be any of those names from what I have heard off the record. Sigh.

It’s the sigh that’s the interesting bit.

It reads just like a) Knowles is saying there’s another director in the frame – nay, at the head of the pack and b) it’s somebody to make you sigh.

But the list already had Tony Scott on it… who could he be sighing about? I thought he liked everything…

Thanks to Little Bleeder Gabriel for the tip-off.
